Year 1 2017

This Week in Year 1 (20/11/17)


In Literacy we have been planning our own versions of the Jack and the Beanstalk story.  We have had lots of fun thinking of our own characters to use!


Rehan decided to make his story backwards and have Jim the Giant living in a tiny cottage and climb the beanstalk to meet big, scary Jack living in a castle at the top.

We have been practicing finding more and less of different numbers in our Outdoor Learning. 

This week in Year 1 - 6/11/17


After writing reports about what happened to our classroom in Literacy last week, a culprit has been identified!  Jim the Giant!

In our lessons this week we have been working hard to describe him, using lots of lovely adjectives.   


In Science we have been learning about our senses and labelling different parts of our face.  We really enjoyed playing this game -

This Week in Year 1 - 30/11/17


We came back after half term to find that something had happened to our classrooms! 


The tables and chairs were tipped over and there were big, white footprints on the floor.  We found yellow and orange feathers on the floor and some golden glitter.    


We searched for clues to try and find out what had happened.  Some of us thought the Giant had come down from the beanstalk looking for his golden hen!  We are going to collect all the evidence together and write a report in our Literacy lesson.
