A whirlwind week in Year 1, from English and Maths to finding out all about ‘The Great Fire of London’.

Well this week has flown by in Paris and Madrid classes.

All children have worked extremely hard and have impressed myself, Miss Vaughan and Mrs Wynn. They each have a fantastic attitude to their learning, which has shone through during lessons this week.

Throughout English this week children have learnt to use labels to describe a picture. Next week, we will be moving on to writing captions for a variety of images. Children will be learning to use finger spaces, capital letter and full stops in their captions as well as using their sounds to support their spelling.

During Maths this week children have been learning how to show the value of a number and what a number means. Next week, we will be continuing this focus and building upon our understanding of numbers, resulting in a challenge on Friday.

In Topic this week children have been finding out all types of interesting facts about the ‘Great Fire of London’ and how Samuel Pepys story is linked to it. One challenge was to order the events of this historic events and talk about how people would have felt during this time. Today we have all designed our own wooden house to make. Next week,  children will be building their wooden houses from 1666, and re-creating Pudding Lane ready to re-enact the ‘Great Fire of London’ next Friday.
