A busy week in Year 1!
Friday 3rd October | 5 comments
In literacy we have read the book ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ written by Vivian French. We have been busy tasting lots of different vegetables. What was your child’s favourite? The children have been thinking of adjectives to describe the vegetables – we had crunchy carrots, slimy beetroot, scrumptious peas we even used some alliteration such as ruby red rhubarb. They then used these adjectives to write a class poem and their own individual version. They tried very hard and we had some great poems written. They have also been busy using different types of media to create pictures of the vegetables – they explored pastels, chalks, paints and pencils. The finished art work will be displayed in our classrooms.
In maths we have been focussing on subtraction. We have been creating our own calculations using autumn objects. The children had fun taking away conkers and acorns. The children recorded their findings in different ways – some wrote calculations and some drew pictures to work out the answers. Some children were extended using a number line to subtract.
We had a very exciting science lesson all about rainbows. The children were involved in different investigations all based on splitting white light into the seven colours of the rainbow. Ask your child how they found a rainbow.
We hope you are all looking forward to tasting our delicious vegetable soup next Wednesday. Please return your reply slips so we know how much to make!!
Have a great weekend.
