Properties of shapes

This week Year 1 have been exploring properties of 2D shapes. We used vocabulary such as; sides, vertices, straight and curved to describe the shapes. Then children had to work in groups to create their own criteria to sort the 2D shapes. There was lots of good discussion and team work.


RE nature

In RE this term Year 1 are learning about Christian beliefs. Last week we learnt that Christians believe God created all nature. Today we went outside and took photographs of all the nature we could find in the school grounds. Year 1 took some lovely photographs on their iPads, we may have some future photographers in our class!


Mass and weight

This week we have been comparing weight and using standard and nonstandard units to measure weight. Today Year 1 had to find the heaviest and the lightest from a group of objects. In small groups the children discussed ways they could approach this task. Each group came up with a different way to solve the problem. Super work Year 1!


Finding things out

This term we are learning all about dinosaurs. Today in computing we used books and the internet to find facts about dinosaurs. First we talked about staying safe on the internet and reporting things to a trusted adult. After that we went on the iPads and read some nonfiction books about dinosaurs to find out interesting facts. At the end of the lesson we discussed what we found out.


Problem solving

Year one have been problem solving. Throughout the week we had been practising one more and one less. After we had lots of practise we got into pairs and helped each other to solve tricky problems involving one more and one less. We worked really hard and didn’t give up when it was difficult.
