Year 1 – It’s all about toys!

The children have all started back to the New Year in a brilliant way. They are enjoying the new project of ‘A Toy’s Story’ where we have been learning about different materials and their properties as part of our Science learning. The children have loved exploring the materials and thinking about the best material for Teddy’s coat so that he doesn’t get wet in the rain! Last week, we thought about toy robots and used our imagination to create our own robot collages.

As part of our English, we have been learning to retell the story of ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’. The children have loved putting actions to the story and are enjoying writing their own versions using a different animal. Maybe ask your child to tell you their story. In maths, we have been thinking about comparing and ordering numbers within 20. The children have been thinking about why a number is greater or less than another and using their knowledge of tens and ones to help compare the numbers. Over the next week, we will be learning about length and height where the children will learn to use rulers to measure accurately to the nearest whole centimetre. Please find our project knowledge organiser and topic web below.

We’d like to thank all the parents and carers at home who have supported their children over the last week with home learning. The children have been producing some great work at home and have settled back to class well when they return.
