Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 :)

 
Here you will find lots of useful information about our year group.
 
Make sure to check back regularly to see what we have been up to in class!

Week Beginning 13th November 2017

As part of our Time Travellers topic we have been learning about key events throughout History to help gain an understanding of time and chronological orders. To help pupils to gain a better understanding of this concept we considered and discussed key events from their own lives. Thank you for sending in your photos and special objects for the class to look at. The children really enjoyed sharing their special memories and being history detectives to find clues from the photos or object.

 

This week we were also lucky enough to participate in Children in Need! Thank you for all your donations, the children had a fantastic day in non-uniform and really enjoyed the activities throughout the day. The children took part in put the bow on Pudsey, musical statues, an art competition and guess the name of the Teddy.

Week beginning 30th October 2017

As part of our new Humanities topic 'Time Travellers' the children planned a party for Jack, our year group jigsaw piece. They had to create a shopping list of what we would need and discussed parties that they had been to in the past. On Friday, the children participated in the celebration and had a lot of fun!

Week beginning 16th October 2017

This week in Science we took part in an experiment to test materials for waterproof properties. We needed to choose a material that would be appropriate to make a coat out of, for the teddy. First we predicted what material would be best and then we discussed the features that a coat should have, such as the comfortable factor! Following our investigation, we decided that plastic would be best for the teddy.

Week Beginning 9th October

This week in science we have been learning new scientific vocabulary such as 'transparent', 'opaque', 'rigid' and 'malleable'. We used a sorting board to group objects based on their properties. We have been using "rigid as a rock" and "moving malleable" to help us remember what the vocabulary means. To practice using these terms we made salt dough. We learnt that when we first added the ingredients together the dough was malleable as it could be pulled and stretched into any shape. We then learnt that as the salt dough dried it became rigid.

Week beginning 2nd October 2017

On Thursday we took part in our first 'Green Day' of the year. We learnt about the rainforest and the items it can provide us with, such as food, medicine, coffee etc. We created a venn diagram based on animals and plants that can be found in the rainforest or at home.

Week Beginning 25th September 2017

In Science we have carried out several experiments! We had lots of fun testing the strength of different types of paper and the stretchiness of every day objects. As a class we thought carefully about the equipment we needed and the method we needed to follow.

Week Beginning 11th September

This week we were thinking about what makes us special as part of Jigsaw. One idea was that we all look different, making us all unique and special. We then decided to create some self portraits using paint and fabrics. We have displayed these next to our cloak room :)

We have been doing lots of work around number this week. We have practised some careful counting in maths, using a range of resources. We have then been matching up objects we have counted with the correct digits and words.
