Finding halves and quarters

This week we are practising fractions. We found out that’s not all numbers can be shared equally into halves or quarters. We split up in to groups and had the challenge of working out which numbers we can share equally between two and four.

Come fly with me…

Today Year 1 took a trip to Manchester Airport. We went on a real aeroplane and we had so much fun learning about the important jobs people do to keep us safe at the airport and we even got to dress up! After that we saw the fastest plane in the world, ‘Concorde’, and we got to touch the nose of an old aeroplane. We had a wonderful day and learned so many new things!

Drawing from life

Today in art Year 1 have been out in the sunshine drawing from still life. We chose a tree on the field and studied the lines and detail on the tree. After that we used pencil to carefully sketch the tree. Year 1 produced some fantastic work!

Capacity and volume

Today Year 1 used cubes to measure capacity and volume. We had to compare each container and order them from the container that could hold the most to the container that could hold the least. Super measuring Year 1!

Division

Today in Year 1 we have started learning about ‘dividing’ or ‘sharing’ numbers. We started off by dividing by 2. We used cubes and hoops to help us work out the answers.
