It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know the children in Year 1  and I cannot believe we are nearly at the end of our first term together. During this term the children have learnt and progress in all areas of the curriculum.

In maths, we have been learning how to count in 1’s up to 100 and in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. As part of this learning, the children have explored number and their value. When learning larger numbers the children have begun to identify the tens and units, enabling them to truly understand the size of the number.

As writers, the children have learnt and written the story of ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’. We have also become poets and written our own poems about fireworks. The children included similes in their poems; comparing a verb or an adjective to and object i.e as red as an apple. We are currently learning about instructions and the need to be bossy when writing instructions!

In Science we have learnt about materials and their properties. The children were able to use this knowledge to solve Leo’s problem! Leo had a hole in his umbrella and needs to find a good material, that is waterproof, to fix it! During this term the children have been learning all about the 5 senses and how important these are in everyday life.

During topic lessons the children have learnt all about shoes and their home town of Kingsley and Northampton. We have begun learning about India as a country and how it differs from England. We recently enjoyed exploring our sense of taste, when visiting the Imperial Raj.

Below is a video of some of the learning opportunities the children have been involved with. We hope you enjoy watching it.
