Year 1 have been learning about weather. We will be measuring the weather using a rain gauge, thermometer, wind vane and an anemometer. We have put these outside on our school grounds so that we can check on them and record our findings in a weather chart.
This half-term in DT, we have been practising the skills to make a wonderful weather cupcake. We have added different delicious ingredients into the mixture to see which we liked the best. We chose chocolate chips for taste and food colouring for appearance.
This half-term, we have been developing our bat and ball skills. We started by controlling the ball on the floor with the bat and now we can control it on top of our bats.
This term, we have been learning about how to stay safe on the internet in our E-Safety topic. We have created pictures and actions to remind us to “stop, minimise and report” if something strange happens online.
In Year 1, we have been practising balances with a partner. We have to work together to make sure we can hold our balance.
In maths, Year 1 have been partitioning two-digit numbers. We had to build the numbers by making towers of ten and leaving the single blocks to represent the ones. This was a very tricky lesson but we can now partition two-digit numbers in a range of different ways!
In maths, we have been using our water tray to learn about capacity. We could say whether a container was more or less than a litre. We liked when the container was less than a litre because it would overflow and we would get splashed!
In Year 1, we have been preparing for our Bee-Bot sports day. We have been putting instructions into our Bee-Bot to get it to its target. Sometimes, they even have obstacles which makes it really tricky.
In Year 1, we have been learning about time. We can now make different times on our clocks and recognise the time in our classroom. We even have a cool dance routine to remember where the big hand needs to point to for o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to!
This term, we have been practising our partner skills in outdoor PE. We continued to improve our throwing and catching skills to another person by stepping forward to throw the ball. Year 1 are a great team!
