Year 1 - Squirrels
Welcome to the Squirrels Class Page
What have we been learning?
We have had a busy half term in Squirrels class!
In English we have focused on the story The Enormous Turnip. We had lots of fun exploring turnips, even painting with them! We used puppets to help us learn the story and spent lots of time acting out the story with our friends. At the end of the half term we came up with our own ideas to write our own stories. We have focused on adjectives and time connectives in our story writing.
In Maths we have spent the half term securing our knowledge of number. We have spent lots of time practicing our counting and ensuring we are able to identify one more or one less of a given number. We have enjoyed lots of practical learning which has helped deepen our understanding! We are now starting to look at addition, we will continue to use lots of practical methods in our learning.
Our topic this term is stories from around the world and we have had lots of fun learning different stories from places such as Africa, Australia and France. We will continue this next half term, exploring more countries as we go along. We have learned about Vincent Van Gogh in Art and about our senses in Science. We had lots of fun exploring our senses, particularly the taste test!
10 – 15 minutes reading each day.
