Wow! What an incredible week of learning we have had in Year One! The children came back to school refreshed and ready for learning- they have delighted all of the grown ups in Year One with their enthusiasm and knowledge about animals.
During our English lessons we have using cause and effect language (so/because) to discuss the features of different animals. By the end of the week the children were confidently using this language to talk about why giraffes have long necks and why tigers have stripes. In Maths we have been placing 2-digit numbers on a number line- we have been finding the correct place for the tens digit and then counting along the ones. During Topic we explored some of the issues facing the animals of the African Savana and found out how people are solving these problems. In our Science lessons we predicted where we might find minbeasts in our outdoor area before going on a minibeast hunt. We explored the natural habitats for different minibeasts and found out what might be the important features for each minibeast. Truly wonderful learning!
English: we will be writing our own non-chronological reports and riddles about our favourite animals.
Maths: we will be exploring the composition of teen numbers.
Phonics: we will be thinking about the different spellings of u (oo/u/oul).
Science: we will be creating habitats for woodlice to find out about their preferences.
Topic: we will be exploring how safari parks help with the conservation of wildlife.
Thank you Year One for all of your excitement and super learning this week,
The Year One Team.
