Year 1's Blog

Two digit numbers

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

Year 1 have been representing 2 digit numbers using a progression of manipulatives this week. They have moved from the concrete to pictorial. 


Making our own car

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

Year 1 turned in to toy makers today by starting to make their own toy cars.

We designed our cars last week thinking about what tools and equipment we needed and what we wanted our cars to look like.

Today we built the main structure using wheels, axels and the base unit.

Tomorrow we will be putting our finishing touches on our cars before sending our end products off to santa!


Festive outdoor Friday

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

Year 1's outdoor Friday had a festive feel to it today with children making christmas decorations for our stall at winter wonderland.

Children worked really hard making decorations out of sticks and craft materials.

They look great and we can't wait for you to see them


Terrific tracks

Year 1 (Year 1) on: Year 1's Blog

Year 1 turned detective on Friday and went on a hunt to find animal tracks in the outdoors.  Although we did not find many, the most spotted tracks were dometic cat prints.  

We then made our own animal tracks using our information sheets and sticks.


Road Safety Week

Outdoor Friday fun for year 1

It has been another fantastic outdoor Friday for year 1 with this weeks theme been all things hedgehog.

We started off by discussing hedghogs and their habitats, the children enjoyed hearing all about how hedgehogs sleep all winter!  

We had lots of fun outside making hedgehog hibernation homes and hedgehog crafts.
