Half term information Spring 2 2022

This has been another busy term for Y1! We have loved learning all about castles, we have learnt all about the features of castles, we used this knowledge to help up design and build our own castles, we even linked this to our previous learning on 3d shapes. We also created some beautiful dragon poems where we explored using adjective and even similes! 
In math we have been looking at place value and representing numbers in numerous ways, such as dienes, part whole models and place value counters. We have been using our knowledge to support us solving worded problems. Not only this but we loved measuring knights in our unit on length, we even measured objects around the classroom in cm and m.
Science has been all about senses. We have been exploring our 5 sences through activites such as taste testing (which we thouroughly enjoyed)  and even sound hunts. To finish of this topic we read the story Princess and the Pea. This inspired us to investigate which material is best to prevent us feeling the pea.
