Summer 1

This week in Year 1 we have been making secondary colours using primary colours, the children used a colour wheel to help then understand which colours can be mixed to make a secondary colour.

Week commencing Monday 6th May 2024


This week in Year 1 we have continued with our new text 'Miss Molly's School of Manners'. We have written a character description of Algernon and talked about how his behaviour and personality has changed. In Mathematics, we have enjoyed finding 'half' of a shape or quantity. We used counters to represent this and challenged ourselves to write the addition sentence to match. 

This week in Year 1, we have been learning fractions during our Mathematics lesson, today the children were able to use the practical resources to find half of a quantity.

This week in Year 1 we have been looking at leaves and their features as part of our science lesson- The children have learnt key vocabulary such as leaf, margin, vein, blade,and stalk.

As part of our Design and Technology topic 'Chop, Slice and Mash' Oak Class have been enjoying fruit tasting! The children were able to try a range of different fruits from banana to lemon and were asked to discuss their taste, texture and appearance.

This week Year 1 we have been learning about making equal groups in our Mathematics lesson, the children were able to access this lesson by taking part in practical activities with their peers. The children were asked to identify how many equal groups there were, how many objects in each group and how many objects there was altogether.

Wild flower hunting with Oak Class- This week Oak class have been searching for wild flowers in our pond area, the children were encouraged to use key vocabulary when discussing the features of their flowers.
