Welcome to Year 1
In Science we have been looking at ‘Animals Including Humans’ we have explored what makes different animals belong to a certain group. We also completed a practical investigation about animal waste, to find out what certain animals eat. We used this information to help us decide whether they were a carnivore, herbivore or an omnivore. The children loved the investigation.
In Maths year 1 have been looking at multiplication, division and fractions. We have been using concrete resources to help us understand how to divide amounts between different groups. The children have grown in confidence and are willing to use the apparatus independently.
In DT year 1 have been looking at castles. We have been exploring the features of a castle and what makes a castle different to other buildings. In teams, we created our own castles, we painted and assembled them. Year 1 were very proud of their castles.
In Geography year 1 have been investigating the weather and the different types of weather that occurs during different seasons. The children have looked at different countries around the world and how their weather is different compared to ours. We also dressed up to see how we dress different for different types of weather.
