Mr Plenty - Year 1 Teacher
Mrs Symes - Learning Support Assistant
This term we have been learning about partitioning 2 digit numbers and counting in 10's and 1's using classroom resources including blocks, counters and straws to enable us to visually picture what different amounts look like.
PHSE Celebrating difference
We learned that it is okay to be the same as others or to be different. we sometimes like different things but we can still be friends. we also thought abought how to be a good friend.
We have had a very busy 1st term in Year 1, working very hard in Maths, Literacy and topic work such as DT.
In Literacy we have been learning traditional tales, such as The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Gingerbread Man. We drew our own story maps to help us remember the sequencing of the stories and also to help us in our writing. Our literacy work is now much neater and we have started to use descriptive language within our sentences.
We have really enjoyed the different maths introduced to us already this term and we surprised Mr Plenty in being able to count to over 150!!! on our very first day back after the holidays.
We have been looking at Groups & Counting
More or Less
Ordering amounts from smallest to biggest and from biggest to smallest.
Making 5,6,7,8,9,10 the children have been adding 2 numbers or 2 groups of objects together to find the totals.
Design & Technology
We had read the Three Billy Goats Gruff and some of us really wanted to build our own versions of the bridge, that the Troll lived under. We had great fun using different resources that were available in the classroom, to help us in building a bridge that was strong enough to hold an animal or maybe even a car! There were some great designs.
