For our English we learnt the story of ‘Owl Babies’ by Michael Waddell, using actions to retell and drew story maps. We then researched lots of information about owls and wrote facts on a feather to stick on our ‘Information Owl’.
The topic culminated in a visit of Owls and other Birds of prey where we learnt lots of interesting facts about the birds and saw some of them fly. It was amazing!
This term the Year 1 class have getting to grips with using "Talk for writing" to support our work in English. They have created movements to help us to remember the tales that we have been looking at, creating new characters to enhance the text we are reading, exploring new settings for the action and creating new pages for the books.
In Maths we have been exploring addition and subtraction using lots of concrete resources to help us become more fluent with number and to recognize patterns in number.
We have been looking at Animals including Humans in our science lessons by exploring our senses, looking at some of the different tests that Dr's perform, following life cycles and investigating what different animals eat.
This has been a busy and exciting first term in year one. The children have been settling in well and have really taken to life in KS1, I am very proud of them all.
