Patterns, pictures and more

User Rating:  / 0
In our mathematics this week we have been looking at 2d and 3d shapes. We have gone on a shape hunt and found them in the classroom and outside. We looked at wrapping paper and used repeating patterns to generate our own designs. We have thought about the properties of the shapes, including the number of sides and corners of 2d shapes and the faces, edges and vertices of 3d shapes. We also checked out the shape pages in our planners to help us!

Year 1 Enjoy the Gruffalo!

In Year 1 we have been enjoying our work in Literacy on the Gruffalo. We have read the story, watched the short film, retold the story using story language, acted out the story with puppets and masks and described the characters using super adjectives! Some of us have even written about a new character for the Gruffalo to eat...Badger pie, Hedgehog bubblegum, Eagle soup and many more.


Year One search the school grounds for a visitor

User Rating:  / 0
As part of our topic ‘If you go down to the woods today’ both Year One classes received a letter from Barnaby Bear telling them he was coming to visit. However he managed to get lost in the school grounds and we all had to go out to look for him. We then looked at an aerial photograph and matching map of the local area to find the school. We also thought of questions we wanted to ask Barnaby Bear. We are looking forward to finding out more about his travels round the world!
