Term 2 Week 3
This week in English we have started to look at the story of the Three Little Pigs. On Monday we went to the sports hall with our friends from Year 2 and Reception and the story was read to us with the use of puppets.
We have also learnt different actions to help us retell the story and worked in small groups to help us remember them.
We also had a visit from the Big Bad Wolf this week who told us it was all a big mistake and he was just trying to help the Three Little Pigs out and they wouldn't listen to him.
In Maths this week we have been working on subtraction. We started the week using a numberline to help us count back and then wrote out our subtraction number sentences. We have worked with a partner using a 10's frame and had to see who could get to 0 first using our subtraction skills.
This week is Anti-Bullying week. Year 1 thought about being a good friend and what it looks like and how it makes us feel. Everyone had a turn at holding our jigsaw piece (Jack) and telling him what they had done this week as a good friend.
Term 2 Week 2
This week in maths we have been working on subtraction number problems. We have used different resources, number lines, bead strings, counters, straws and pebbles.
For our English work this week we have looked at the Big Bad Wolf. We wrote our own wanted posters including a description of what the wolf looks like. Also we have received a copy of a letter Granny wrote to the Wolf this week saying how disappointed she is with him. Then we wrote a letter to her as the Wolf to say sorry.
Term 2 Week 1
This term in English we are going to be sharing lots of different Traditional Tales. Our first tale is Little Red Riding Hood. This week we had a visit from Little Red Riding Hood and asked her lots of different questions.
"Why did the Wolf go into the forest?" Keagan
" Why did you go into the forest?" Lilly-Mai
"Where does your Granny live?" Bella
"Why did the big bad Wolf lock Grandma up?" Ellie
"Why was the Wolf pretending to be your Granny?" Tyreece
We then wrote down lots of our own questions. Also this week we have retold the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
We have been exploring 3d shape, recognizing 2d faces on them and sorting them, using our own sorting criteria.
First we started by playing ‘guess my shape in the bag’ and then we built towers and rockets using the 3d shapes that we could name. Next we could choose five 3d shapes and describe the shape and where they were positioned, bottom, top, 1st,2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th.
Our next shape activity was to sort 2d and 3d shapes, using various criteria: colour, size, shape, face shapes…
…then we went outside to find some of the 3d shapes and describe them to each other using mathematical language.
