Who Did It?

We have been looking after the Queens diamond…but it has gone missing! We have been investigating the crime and collecting the clues and evidence. A detective came to help us find the suspect. We will be making wanted posters and newspaper reports. In Literacy we have been reading ‘The Great Paper Caper’; we have been writing newspaper reports to report the crime of the Bear. In Maths we have been solving addition word problems.

Save The World!

This week we have been reading and writing measurements for capacity. In Literacy we have been reading ‘The Great Paper Caper’; we have been describing the feelings of the main character and writing diary entries. We found out about Global Warming and what causes it. We have been trying to make the Earth healthy ourselves!


Balancing Act!

In Maths we have been using the scales to weigh objects. In Literacy we have been researching ‘The Great Storm of 1987’ and writing reports. In Art we have a new artist as our focus: Renoir. We looked at how we can be more like Grey Mouse.

Just keep floating, just keep floating…..

What a busy week the children have had!

It was nice to see so many of you at Sky’s assembly last week and Aqua’s assembly today, we are very proud of the children.

In Literacy we have been ordering and writing instructions. We look forward to following our jam sandwich instructions tomorrow.

In Maths we have been identifying and naming the properties of 3D shapes. The children will be making their own 3D shapes tomorrow.

We have been continuing our work on Andy Goldsworthy, by planning and creating our own stick sculptures.

In Science, Year 1 have been planning and carrying out an experiment. The children made boats out of materials they felt would be waterproof and light. We tested our boats, which the children seemed to enjoy greatly. It was a great effort!

There’s a Storm Brewing…

In Literacy we have been watching weather forecasts to gather vocabulary and using the words to write a weather report. We used the ipads to record each other presenting a weather forecast. We watched our friends presenting the weather on the Interactive Whiteboard. In Maths we have been dividing numbers and solving word problems. In Art we recreated one of Andy Goldsworthy’s pieces of artwork.



Lovely Leaves

In Literacy we have been using adjectives to describe characters and using the word ‘because’ to extend our sentences. We have really enjoyed place value in our Maths lessons. In Art we have been taking inspiration from the artist Andy Goldsworthy; we have been doing observational drawings of leaves. In Science we planned an experiment using our knowledge of materials. We looked at extreme weathers during our Place and Time lesson.

Amazing Astounding Alliteration!

We have been looking for alliteration in stories and poems. We wrote alliteration for our names and used the dictionaries to support. In Maths we have been adding coins and different amounts of money together. We sorted the materials into two groups; natural and man-made. We have been watching weather forecasts to gather vocabulary and to give us ideas for making weather symbols.

What is This Made Of?

This week we have been exploring money; we have been ordering the coins and making amounts using different coins. In Literacy we have been writing thank you letters. Our topic this term is Weather and Seasons. We have been sorting materials and identifying the jobs they do.



Half Full

In Literacy we have been using pronouns to improve our sentence writing. In Maths we have been finding ½ and ¼ of shapes. We painted a Winter scene using watercolours. We loved our trip to the Pantomime to see Snow White.
