Have you seen the terrifying wolf?

Year 1 have been reporters this week, reporting on an incident carried out by a terrifying wolf!

In English children have been writing newspaper reports based on the fairy tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. Children have been challenged to use a range of punctuation and adjectives in their writing. The newspaper article appealed for information about an incident which happened at Grandmas house. After half term we will be starting a poetry unit of work based on a poem by Ian Bland.

In Maths we have been continuing to learn about multiplication. We have been using arrays to solve a range of problems. In Clic Maths we have been learning our 2 and 10 x tables through songs and practical methods. We have also bee looking at months of the year and number bonds to 20. Our next unit work will be based on division and providing children with the methods to solve division questions.

On Thursday afternoon we enjoyed a wonderful Key Stage 1 open afternoon. It was fantastic to see all the hard work that had been put into the projects. It was also really interesting to see the numerous ways the project had been completed from sculptures, booklets and posters.

We have ended our week with a lovely afternoon celebrating good behaviour with our ‘good to be green’ afternoon. We have had a big game of hide and seek with all of year 1 followed by  a film and party food.
