Sports Day 2021
Year 1 have been great little poets writing their own poetry describing the elements using alliteration and onomatopoeia. They have also been performing 'The Wind' poem from Shirley Hughes First Book of Poems 'Out and About'. The children used props for effect to present a soft, summery wind in contrast to a gusty, fierce wind.
Maths fractions unit
Year 1 enjoyed the making halves activity for the unit on fractions. They were able to cut and shade half of shapes and create a range of two equal groups using unifix cubes.

It was great to see Year 1 in their cultural dress! The children were able to deliver a presentation to the class explaining what they were wearing and where their cultural dress was from.

Year 1 managed to complete star jumps and pushups with no pauses for 3 minutes. They showed great determination and commitment and were proud to have completed their challenge.
Week Commencing 17.05.21
This week in English we have been reading poems from Shirley Hughes First Book of Poems 'Out and About'. The children engaged all their senses in exploring with mud, sand and water and they were able to talk about their experience using alliteration and onomatopoeia.
This week in Maths we have spent time outdoors making equal groups of cubes and calculating the total amount for our Multiplication and Division unit. The children have also enjoyed making groups through sharing cubes equally.
Send a Cow sponsored silence
Year 1 had great fun partaking in their sponsored silence for Send a Cow this week. They had so much fun that they wanted to do it all again! They managed to stay silent for 10 minutes with no interruptions. Thank you to the parents who have already contributed to the Send a Cow fund. Year 1 have raised £36 so far.

This week Year 1 enjoyed World Maths Day by finding 2D and 3D shapes in the classroom and measuring objects in the classroom. They have been practising measuring in centimetres. The children were able to name the shapes they found and they did an excellent job at comparing the lengths of objects in the classroom.
In English Year 1 have been planning and writing their own version of the tale we have been reading 'The Sweetest song'. They have been able to retell their stories confidently and present them to the class.
