Y1 have had a very busy term of learning!
The children have been reading, following and writing instructions. The children have enjoyed following instructions to make fruit kebabs, jam sandwiches, fruit pizzas and….SLIME!! They have even been reading recipe books in their Book Talk time to further enhance their understanding of how instructions are written down. They have then used these features to write their own sets of instructions.
In maths, Year 1 have been learning further addition and subtraction facts; how to solve problems and have started telling the time using o-clock and half past on analogue clocks. Please practise at home as time is a difficult concept for children to master.
The children had lots of fun during STEM week learning about the density of liquids; how to make an aeroplane and glider fly the furthest; controlling beebots and finding out about pollution and how we can improve our environment. In addition to this the children were involved in lots of learning about making electrical circuits; making perfume using natural materials and creating journey sticks to use as a map.
In Design Technology, the children have been designing and making healthy salads. There has been a lot of practising of chopping, peeling and grating different fruits and vegetables in preparation for their salad making.
