Year One Blog 12th November

Welcome to this week's Year One blog. 


What we have been doing this week


This week in our writing lessons, the children have been looking at the story 'Lost and Found'. They have been looking at verbs with different suffixes (-ing and -ed) and have done a fantastic job at writing some sentences related to the story. They have even been authors themselves and they have adapted parts of the story!


In maths, the children have been learning how to subtract using a number line and they have been finding the difference between two amounts. As always, we are continuing to work on our problem solving skills.


We have completed our science topic where we have looked at different materials and their properties. The children are now able to describe different objects and they have designed some items of clothing/props for 'The Smartest Giant in Town'. 


What we are learning next week


Next week in literacy, the children will be writing a character description about the penguin in our story. They will be focusing on the penguin's appearance and personality. 


In maths, we will be applying our knowledge of addition and subtraction to fact families. We will also be looking at greater than (>), less than (<) and equal to (=). Please see more information by looking at our knowledge and skills organiser 


We will be starting a new art topic where we will be focusing on the artist Vincent Van Gogh and his famous paintings. The children are going to be learning about primary and secondary colours and they are going to learn different skills/techniques of how to paint.
