Look what we have done in Year 1 this week.

Another 4 day week but we’ve had lots of fun and learnt plenty! We started the week with our Design and Technology task of creating a wheeled vehicle fit for a Queen. See our separate post for photographs of our brilliant work.
In maths we have been focussing on halves and quarters of shapes and numbers. We looked at the book ‘Picture Pie’ by Ed Emberley. This is a great book and he cuts circles into halves and quarters to create some lovely pictures. The children tried hard to create their own half and quarter pictures. We also practically halved numbers by sharing objects. Some children were extended to find out a quarter of a number. Can your child tell you what is half of 10? What is half of 20? What is a quarter of 8?
In literacy the children looked carefully at their wheeled vehicle and thought about how they could improve it and completed a simple evaluation.
Well done to all the children who have been practising our Christmas songs at home. It is sounding lovely already. Their costumes need to be in school on Monday – please make sure that everything is named.
Remember that we are making Christingles next Monday – your child needs to bring an orange to school. Thank you to all the parents who have kindly offered to accompany us on our visit to the church – everyone is welcome.
Have a lovely weekend.
