Autumn Term 2018
Welcome to Year 1
Year 1 received a mysterious package from the North Pole! The children needed to find away of sending Santa's favourite food back to him, without the eggs cracking. The children experimented with different materials, to find the most suitable one.
Today in Numeracy the children are focusing on counting on and back by 1, 2 and 3. The children made a number line, sorting the numbers into the correct order and then the child would jump forwards and backwards. Year 1, then created number sentences based on what they had seen.
Today in science we looked at different liquids. The children then guessed the liquid and put them in order of thickness. We then observed what happened when the liquids were poured on top of each other.
Year 1 and 2 trip to Wilesden Library. Year 1 went on a journey to Africa, stopping off at Egypt, Ghana, Zambia and Kenya. The children all had a fantastic time and learnt a lot about the countries.
We are continuing to learn about the Judaism faith and the children were focusing on the Star of David and what the colours represent. The children created a stain glass window, found in a Synagogue.
This week we are learning about 'Judaism' through literacy. Year 1 were very lucky that Ms Manesh was able to bring in some Jewish clothing to try on.
Shape - Year 1 have been separating 2d shapes into Venn diagrams, looking at their properties.
Conscience alley - Year 1 are looking at a new book written by Rachel Isadora called 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses'. Ms Nobrega, took on the role of the king in the story and the children shouted out adjectives to describe the kings personality and appearance.
Year 1 had a go at guessing the baby, as part of our IPC topic 'Who am I?' Some of the children were very hard to identify!
This week in Literacy we are continuing looking at the story 'Handa's Surprise', we are writing instructions on how to prepare a fruit salad. The children have been trying to remember their punctuation in their writing, by using 'Kung Fu Puncuation'.
Our literacy focus this week is Handa's Surprise (Written by Eileen Browne). Year 1 have been retelling the story. Today we looked at some of the fruits from the story. They tried some new fruits, describing them using their senses.
