A very busy week in Year 1!
Friday 14th February | 6 comments
The highlight of our week was our amazing art gallery when the children exhibited their fabulous art work to the public. The children were very proud of their achievements and we hope you enjoyed the gallery.
We have continued with our story writing. This week we used the art work of Raphael Perez to inspire us. The children used their imagination and fell into a painting again! They planned a problem and resolution using a story mountain and then wrote their own stories. We had children flying in hot air balloons, getting swallowed by whales and jumping off skyscrapers with parachutes!
In phonics we have revised all the phonemes learnt so far this year. We have sent home a game for you to play with your child – please keep practising reading all the real and alien words. We also used ‘Spelling Shed’ to help us spell the tricky words.
The children have worked really hard in maths this week! We have been representing numbers to 50 and using the language of tens and ones. We have also helped our puppet Gertrude solve missing numbers on a part whole model too.
We have also had fun with shapes and art this week. The children were inspired by the art work of Gary Webb and Wassily Kandinsky and created 2D art work and 3D sculptures.
We enjoyed looking at the pop-up books that the Year 4s had written about vertebrates. We learnt some great animal facts!
Thank you for all your support this half term.
