Year One's Blog 19th November

Welcome to this week's Year One blog. 


What we have been doing this week


This week in literacy, the children have been writing some sentences to describe the penguin in the story 'Lost and Found'. They have written some fantastic sentences focusing on capital letters and full stops.


In maths, we have been looking at 'fact families'. Give your child a number sentence such as 4 + 3 = 7 and challenge them to write 3 more number sentences using the same numbers. They will blow you away with their maths skills! We have also made comparisons between two numbers this week and written number sentences e.g. 3 > 1, 4 =4. 


This week we have been brilliant artists and we have learnt that by adding white and black paint to primary colours we can make the shade of the colour 'lighter' or 'darker'. We have also learnt that by mixing two primary colours together we can make a different colour called 'secondary colours'. 


What we are learning next week


Next week in literacy, we will be starting to get into the Christmas spirit as we will be looking at the story 'Stick Man'. The children are going to learn, retell and write the story. 


In maths, we will be looking at 3D and 2D shapes. We will be comparing different shapes and we will be creating patterns. Please see more information by looking at our knowledge and skills organiser 


In art next week we will be looking at Vincent Van Gogh and his famous painting 'Starry Night'.
