Year One

Year one have really enjoyed learning about how and why Jewish people celebrate Sukkot. They have made a Sukkah which is a temporary hut made for use during the week long Festival. It is topped with branches and often well decorated with autumnal or harvest themes. It is common for Jews to eat, sleep and spend time in the Sukkah. Sukkot is a joyous occasion. The hut reminds Jewish people of the time when God protected people for 40 years in the desert.

Maths - Mrs Ireland has been teaching us some of the many ways in which you can make and prepresent numbers. We have been using objects, counters, tens and ones, arrow cards, straws and 10p's and 1p's.

We have loved reading Wanted: The Perfect Pet by Fiona Robertson. We particularly enjoyed our drama lesson acting out the main events.

Our World

Year 1 have been asking geographical questions about the world in which we live in.

 

They have been learning the names of the 7 continents and focusing on their shape and what they look like so they can learn and remember them.

 

 

Year 1 have been talking about having a positive mindset towards their learning. They have created superheros to help them with their learning.

 

So instead of saying....'I'm rubbish at this', year 1 are going to try and think.....'well what can I do to improve?'

Instead of saying......'this will do', try thinking.....'is this my best work?'

Instead of saying.....'I just can't do this', try thinking....'I am going to try a different strategy.'

Harvest

Year 1 are learning about the Christian Festival of Harvest in their R.E topic this half term.

The children have been thinking about where are food comes from and which foods they enjoy the most.

The children learnt where cheese, tomatoes, melon, cucumber, chocolate, grapes, pineapple and crisps come from. Some grow on plants, some grow under ground and some are made from cows milk. 

Year 1 enjoyed a Harvest picnic that reminded them to be thankful to God for our Harvest.
