Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Our classes are:

Trinidad class - Mrs. Manners

Tobago class - Ms. Wells


Autumn term 1 - ‘People from the Past’

For our inspiration day last term we learnt about significant artists e.g. Pablo Picasso and Kandinsky. The children created their own Weeping Woman in the style of Pablo Picasso and also created their own pebble art in the style of Kandinsky.

In Literacy the children have written their own versions of the Man on the Moon by Simon Batram. The children used the story map to help them retell the story. The children changed parts of the story to make it their own e.g. the name of the character, the name of the planet, what their character had for lunch and what items they sold in the shop.

In Maths the children have been practicing lots of different things e.g. to count forwards and backwards in ones to at least 10, writing the numbers in words, using the language and symbols for more than, less than and equal to when comparing amounts. The children have also looked at the part, part whole model e.g. if 10 is the whole, it can be split into two parts 8 and 2. The children then went on to write their number bonds to 10 collaboratively within a group.

In Science we have learnt about different lights sources. We then discussed shadows and how they are made. The children practised making different shaped hand shadows. The children then made their own shadow puppets that they used to retell their story in Literacy.
