Year 1 News
This week, Year 1 have been maths experts, story writers and explorers using a world map.
Our learning in Maths has enabled us to use lots of maths resources to show numbers in tens and ones. Once we had a few goes at this we were then able to compare pictures of numbers up to 50. We showed lots of independence when we completed a Maths quiz, well done!
Our story writing ideas have been in full flow in Literacy this week. We used the Gorilla story to help plan a story and this week we have been writing the beginning middle and end of the story. Our adventures were full of excitement and left us all wanting to read more and more.
During phonics we met a new sound o-e, and we enjoyed finding out that the letters are far too chatty so they have to be split, so we call this type of sound a split digraph.
We thought carefully about how special we all are, and how each of us is unique within our PSHE work related to World Down Syndrome Day. We enjoyed showing our differences when we wore our brightly coloured socks on Thursday.
What do we call places on a map? This was our starting point to look and compare maps of the world. Once we had the opportunity to expkore a giant map jigsaw, atlases, globes and maps of various sizes, we came up with a list of the places we found. We then set about sorting these words into words that describe the 'big jigsaw' pieces that the world is split up into, our 7 continents. Our learning then enabled us to create our own world maps and in Computing we used the world map to create a world map quiz on the app Tiny Tap. There was lots of new steps in learning and I am looking forward to sharing some of your online quizzes with the whole class very soon.
In PE our focus was to demonstrate our Yoga poses to stretch and hold our body in different ways and in Music we continued to sing our friendship songs alongside our Easter celebration songs.
We have all been so keen to record our reading minutes this week to enter the 200 million reading minutes challenge, and Year 1 like a challenge! I hope you enjoy noting down your minutes over the weekend so we can count up our final total on Friday.
Have a fantastic time reading!
