This week we took part in a whole school maths investigation. We thought about how many hands we would shake if we gave everyone in our class a hand shake. Then we thought about how many we would shake if we only shook one person’s hand in a learning pair. Children used resources and worked together to problem solve.
At the end of the term we learnt the story of the Little Red Hen. The children spent time learning the story from a story map, drew their own and then recounted the story.
This week our children enjoyed problem solving using the part part whole model.
This week we have been using our problem solving skills in Maths. We worked hard to think of different ways we could use 5 colours for 3 balloons. We have also been looking at comparing numbers and using vocabulary such as; more than, less than, greatest, least and as many as.
This week in Year one we have been revisiting our numbers from 0-10 and looking and the different ways numbers can be shown. We have been using tens frames to represent amounts and have challenged ourselves to add small amounts together.
Today in Year 1 we made our boats out of clay. We had to follow our designs carefully and select appropriate tools to help us. We are so excited to paint them once they dry and can’t wait to show you the finished products!
Year 1 had the opportunity to try archery in school yesterday. They enjoyed learning new skills and getting closer to the target!
Year 1 had a super time at Easton Farm. They looked at tractors, saw many animals, got to stroke a baby lamb, did some wet felting and even made butter and flour!
