Year 1

Welcome to Year One !

 Below you will find some useful documents and links to help you understand what we will be covering over the next half term. 

Our whole school topic for this half term is called 'Around the world'. 

In Year One we will be reading stories set in different countries, these stories will cover a range of curriculum areas and learning will be led by the children's interests.

Thank you to those who were able to come to our Year 1 learning cafe. We had lots of fun making different rainforest animals from the story we are reading at the moment - 'The Rainforest Grew All Around'.

On Tuesday the 14th of November we had a science day. 

We wanted to find out what would happen if you placed an egg into water, would it float or sink? 

We then wanted to find out if adding salt to the water would change the eggs buoyancy. 

 

We made our predictions and then started our experiment, a few broken eggs later we discovered that:

  • With no salt in the water the egg sinks. 
  • The more salt you add the more the egg will float. 

 

This is because the dissolved salt has added to the mass of the water making it thicker and explains why it is much easier to float and swim in the sea than it is in fresh water.

Around the world medium term plan

 

 

Our topic for the first Autumn half term was called 'Once upon a time'. 

We started by reading two stories that started with 'Once upon a time', we reviewed and studied these stories and discovered they had the same setting - a castle. 

This lead our learning down a medieval road and below you will see all the wonderful learning we have completed in our first half term together. 

 

In English this half term we have been practising writing sentences independently. First we have to be able to say out loud to a friend what we are going to write - this helps us form our sentence.  

We have focused on making sure our writing has finger spaces, capital letters at the start and full stops at the end. 

We have then been reading out loud what we have written - this helps us check for any mistakes and checks our writing makes sense. 

Below you will find some pictures of our writing and of us reading it to the rest of the class.

After learning about who lives in a castle and what jobs they might do we then learnt about knights and started to design our own shields. 

We learnt what a coat of arms was and what the different colours and symbols meant.

After reading these two stories we discussed the setting and characters and noticed similarities. 

We studied photographs of castles and talked about the shapes and colours we could see. 

Our castles!

We read 'The kiss that missed' and 'A knight and a dragon' last week. We had lots of discussion time about these stories and wrote some short sentences explaining what we liked/disliked about them. 

This week we have begun retelling the stories using drama, below are some photos of us pretending to be knights and dragons!
