Year 1's Learning in Week 5

                                                                    Year One's Learning

Take a look at what Year One have been learning this week...


In Literacy this week, the children have become storytellers. They have been making up their own stories and telling them to their teachers. Then, each class has acted out the children's stories. The children have loved stepping into character and acting out their own and their friends' stories. The children have also created story maps of their stories, drawing pictures and writing descriptive sentences for each part of their story. 

Next week in Literacy we will be continue to work on our own stories. The children will narrate their own stories to their peers in small groups, taking the chance to work on their expression and storytelling skills. They will also be writing their story down, in their own story book, remembering to use adjectives to make their story interesting! 

Key Vocabularystory, once upon a time, next, after, then, before, small, large, big, strong, beautiful, quiet, dark, bright, slimy, scaly

In Maths this week, we have been looking at halving shapes. The children loved these tasked as it allowed them to get creative by drawing and cutting up shapes. Some of the children even managed to grasp the concept of quarters, by having their shapes and halving it again! 

Next week in maths, we will be looking at partitioning again and also adding ten to a number by using the hundred square. A lot of our focus will be on generating a 2 digit number and fining different ways to represent how many tens are in a number and how many ones.
