Year One's Blog 26th November

Welcome to this week's Year One blog. 


On Friday we sent home a letter regarding permission to film your child as part of our Christmas Performance. Just a gentle reminder to please return this by Tuesday 30th November.


What we have been doing this week


This week in literacy we have learnt and written 'Stick Man'. We have written the story using all of the skills we have learnt so far in Year One e.g. capital letters, full stops and the suffix -ed. Take a look at the 'WOW Work' at the bottom of the page, we are sure you will be just as proud as us!


In maths, we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes and we have compared different shapes based on their properties.


This week we have been 'brilliant artists' and we have learnt 3 skills and techniques painters use: stippling, wash and block. The children used their knowledge of mixing colours and different painting techniques to create an under the sea picture. 


What we are learning next week


Next week in literacy, we will be continuing to focus on the story 'Stick Man'. We are going to edit our work from last week and extend some sentences using 'and'. 


In maths, we will be revisiting the learning we have learnt so far in Year One focusing on place value, addition and subtraction. Please see our 'knowledge and skills organiser'


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