Talented Artists in Year 1
This week we have continued to discover the work of different artists and created our own versions of the artwork. We have been using a variety of techniques to create our amazing pictures!
In Maths this week we have recapped work on multiplication using arrays. Through child initiated learning children have continued to read and tell the time using tuff tray clocks, solved multiplication questions using arrays and solved mastery problems by finding all the ways to make a number using the four operations. Next week we will be learning all about the inverse to solve missing number problems.
In English we have continued our work on conjunctions. We have been adding conjunctions into sentences from the story ‘The Queen’s Orangutan’ by David Walliams. Next week the children will be writing their own version of the story with the focus remaining on conjunctions. Children will be challenged to use the following conjunctions in their work: and, but, so. We have lots of fabulous ideas already for our stories including ‘The Queen’s Dinosaur’ and ‘The Queen’s Elephant’.
We have started a new unit of work in Science this week on plants. To start our unit off we have been labelling the different parts of trees and plants. We have also been discussing what a plant needs to enable to grow it well. Next week we will be going outside to explore the different plants and trees that we have at our school.
In PE we have been focussing on the field events which children will be competing in on sports day. These have included javelin, target throw, standing long jump and shot put. Children have been working on skill technique and accuracy for these events. Next week will be our last PE sessions before sports day.
