In Year 1, we have had a fantastic start to the Autumn Term!
We have settled in so well to our new classrooms and shared area. We are loving being back at school and being with our friends again!
We have been very busy with our maths learning over the last few weeks; looking at numbers 1-20, making patterns and looking for shapes within our new environments.
We are able to add and subtract two numbers together using lots of different resources to help us - as well as using our fingers too. We can also write a number sentence using the addition and subtraction symbols and remembering to use an equals sign to show our answer.
Then we had great fun playing 2-D shape bingo to help us learn about the properties of 2-D shapes. It was fun being able to shout out SHAPE BINGO when we had a counter on each of the shapes! We can even tell you the differences between an octagon, pentagon and a hexagon!
We are excited to begin learning about 3-D shapes and to explore the differences between 2-D and 3-D shapes within our environments. Ask us which ones we already know...
We have been on many adventures during our English learning. We sailed the sea with pirates, who love underpants and described the settings using adjectives. We had a dreamy adventure with Max from ‘Where the wild things are’, made a prediction on where we thought he was going next and designed our very own wild thing. We also made sandwiches for our very own wild things picnic. Then we went on to explore out senses, we can tell you all about them! We explored our sense of sight and focused on things that we can see around us. We listened and identified different sounds, used our sense of smell to recognise familiar and unfamiliar scents and used our sense of taste to describe different types of fruits and vegetables. We are now learning about autumn through our senses, pictures and poems. You can ask us what we know about the autumn season...
