Year 1: Weekly round up

What a fun end to a busy week we have had! Today was of course Red Nose Day as we all came in to school dressed in red clothing. This morning we enjoyed designing our very own read noses! We took inspiration from previous red nose day noses and made some interesting looking designs. Some of us made lovely patterns with zig zags, others split theirs in to four quarters and made each quarter a different colour. Some of us decided to do a funny or smiley face. Then this afternoon we transferred those designs on to some red icing using some icing pens to put on top of a cupcake. This turned out to be tricky for some of us as the designs were quite complicated. However, all of them looked excellent and I’m sure they’ll taste just as good! I just hope they all made it home in one piece!

In Maths this week we have been practicing doubling numbers which we have all become really good at. Next week we will be having a look at time, how many minutes there are in an hour and what half past the hour looks like. In Phonics we will be moving on to the letter sound ‘ai’ as in rain after learning about ‘ng’ this week. In our Topic lesson we will be trying to save Superworm who has been trapped in some ice! What will be the quickest way to free him? We’ll be doing some experiments to find out. In PE we have been practising shape on low apparatus. We tried out lots of different shapes and some were much harder than we thought! Next week we’ll be having a go at mastering some different movements.
