We have a butterfly! This afternoon we released the first one out of its chrysalis and have two remaining in the our butterfly net that we are hoping go through the metamorphis stage soon!
We are Year 1I. I am Mrs Ingram and I am delighted to be your class teacher this year. In Y1I we are also lucky to have Mrs Riley and Mrs Cooney, who will be supporting the children this year. We are excited to work with you and your children throughout the coming year.
Spring 2 Learning Challenge:
2016-2017 in Year 1 LT
In Maths we have been applying our fluency, reasoning and problem solving with fractions and time. We even created our own pizzas! Yum Yum! In Geography we have studied Australia and linked this with our Report writing topic in English. We produced Reports on Kangaroos, Koalas and Crested Geckos. As Scientists we have observed plants around school. We have planted a variety of flowers. In RE we have looked at the Easter story and discussed how Easter eggs remind us of the tomb.
As Historians , we studied what it was like to go to schools over a hundred years ago. Above you can see our Victorian themed day. We dressed up and wrote on slates. The boys and girls even had separate lessons. Luckily, no one got hit by the cane! In Maths, we have been applying our problem solving skills with counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. In English, we have been focusing on character feeling and setting description to improve our writing.
Above you can see our visit to Charlie Park. As Geographers, we studied the local area in Atherton and picked our favourite attractions. We decided to visit Charlie Park and even had a walk down Market Street. In Maths we focused on Number Bonds up to 10 and have continued to develop our 'Smart Solvers' problem solving skills. In English we created our own story called The St Philip's Gingerbread Man. We had a rainy day at Blackpool Zoo as part of our Science topic on animals.
Great work, Year 1! Have a lovely Christmas and see you in 2017!
We have had a busy first half term in Year 1. As Mathematicians we have been looking at Number Bonds to 5, 6 and 7. We have used pictorial representations of Number Bonds to 5 using counters, beads and Numicon pieces. We have also been applying our problem solving skills in our Smart Solvers lessons. In English, we have created our own stories and have been busy learning new sounds in Phonics.
As historians, we have compared our toys to those in the past and as Scientists we have explored how we use our senses. We have also created our own Art display for the Creation Story.
