Year 1 Flower Power

What a great time the children are having learning about flowers and plants. They have enjoyed exploring our school grounds, looking for plants they can identify and name and creating fact files about them. We have begun learning about a book called ‘Footpath Flowers’, where we will be writing our own story for the wordless book. The children have been having great discussions about the big idea, ‘Is it right to pick flowers?’.

In maths, we have been learning about counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and using this to help us count sets of objects and group them into equal sets. We will be learning how to double our numbers up to double 10 and practice recalling these facts quickly over the coming weeks.

For more information about what we are learning this term, please take a look at our Project newsletter and knowledge organiser, which came home earlier this term or see below.

Reminder: please could you ensure your child’s PE kit is named, as we are finding many missing parts of kits with no owner. Could we also ask that you ensure your child has a full PE kit with them in school everyday, as sometimes we need to change our PE day due to the weather. Thank you for your help with this.
