A busy week in Year 1!

We have had a wonderful day fundraising for sports relief today. We had a number of different sports stars ranging from gymnasts and footballer to horse riders and golfers. We also competed in our spring inter-house competition where we played handball. Thank you all for your support for Sports Relief.

This week in Maths we have learning about whole, half and quarter turns. We have played lots of games to help us learn about turns. Through child initiated learning children have continued to reinforce and develop current skills. We have solved division questions using sweets, created arrays with Cheerios to solve multiplication questions and solved Easter egg problems using addition and subtraction.

In English we have had our last week of work on the short film ‘Soar’. Children have wrote their own version of the story throughout the week. We have seen so many creative ideas and imaginative stories. Through child initiated learning children have created character descriptions, setting descriptions, comic strips and acted out their stories.

This afternoon we started to make Kites as part of our DT unit of work to take to a Llandudno. We have also designed our sandwiches which we are going to make on Monday afternoon.
