Year 1 2019 - 2020
Miss Parkin and Mrs Pauc
In Maths this term we have consolidated numbers to 10. In particular we have focussed on number bonds to and addition within 10. We have represented calculations in various ways which include, part whole models, tens frames, bar modelling and pictoral representations, as well as writing number sentences. We have also been counting forwards and backwards in 1’s, 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and are continuing to do this to become more secure and confident.
This term we have enjoyed sharing traditional tales including Jack and the Beanstalk. Some literacy groups have also covered Little Red Riding Hood and others The Three Billy Goats Gruff. From these stories, we have all joined in with repetitive refrains ‘fi, fi, fo, fum being one of our year group favourites! We have been very enthusiastic and have extremely enjoyed acting out these stories with our friends. We have also sequenced pictures correctly, drawn and labelled story maps... and finally... we have all written in full sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. How amazing are we?
We have really enjoyed science so far this term... we began learning about many different animals (including humans). We identified and then classified them by their key features. We grouped them into, mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish. We were so good at this we then classified them by their food groups of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
We were amazed to learn that humans are mammals and we know that they give birth to live young. We then learnt the names for some of our body parts... we had a great time labelling and drawing parts of the human body, can you tell by from our photographs?
Next we learnt about the five senses. We now know which parts of our bodies are linked to which sense. We also went on a sensory walk around the school grounds to see what we could see, hear, touch, smell and taste, we produced some lovely illustrations to demonstrate our findings. We then enjoyed using our sense of smell to explore various items that are found in the kitchen. Can you tell from our photographs what we do and don’t like the smell of?
