Year One Blog 21st April

Welcome to this week's Year One Blog


What we have been learning this week:


This week in literacy we have been introduced to the story 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers and we have been focusing on the penguin from the story. The children have asked questions about him and have written a guide of how to help a lost penguin.


This week in Maths we have been introduced to multiplication. We have practised counting in 10s and we have made equal groups. We have also written repeated addition number sentences.


We are encouraging the children to use Doodle Maths at home to improve their maths fluency. If you do not know your child's login, please ask your class teacher.



In Geography we have looked at the human and physical features of Upton. We have explored our local area to help us and we have recorded this in a variety of ways.


In DT we have been introduced to weaving. The children have explored different woven products and have categorised these appropriately.


In Science we have been explored the wildlife around the school and have recorded our findings in a tally chart.


We have noticed that not all of the children are reading three times a week or more. Sadly, there are some children that are reading 0 times a week. Please make sure that you are reading with your child as much as possible to support their reading progress. 


If you haven't paid for the trip to the Science Museum, please do so as soon as possible. 


Have a great weekend everyone!
