Year One Blog Week 7

Welcome to this week's Year One Blog


What we have been learning this week:


This week in literacy the children have watched 'A Cloudy Lesson' and have made their very own bubble blowers. The children have learnt that we use imperative verbs in instructions and we have practised using these in our own. The children have written their own instructions of how to make a cloud blower using imperative verbs.


This week in Maths we have been learning our number bonds to 10 and have learnt how to do this systematically. We have also displayed our different ways of representing our addition using our tens frames and part-part whole models.


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 this week we have created our very own maps of our classrooms using the key features of a map which we have learnt. In DT we have evaluated our fruit salads and have considered what we would like to include if we were to make a fruit salad again.



What we are learning after the half term:


In Maths, we are going to continue with addition using tens frames and number lines to count on before moving onto subtraction.


In Literacy, we are going to read our new book 'I want my hat back'. The children are going to continue to write questions using the story and make predictions. 


In Guided Reading, we are going to be using our book 'I want my hat back' to answer comprehension questions on what the children have read.


In History, the children will be introduced to the Gunpowder Plot and will learn about when this took place and how life in this time differs from today. 

In Art, the children will be introduced to graphite pencils and charcoal to create line drawings. The children will explore how to use these materials to create different patterns.

In Science, the children will begin their 'Humans' topic and will be labelling the different parts of the human body.


We hope you all have a wonderful half term and we look forward to seeing you when we are back.
