Wow! We have had a great week in year 1.
We started the week off by reading the story of Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems. It is all about a little girl who lost her special toy. The children have really enjoyed listening to the story and thought about how they would feel if it was their own toy. They went on to sequence pictures of Knuffle Bunny and practised re-telling the story to their friend. Later in the week, the children thought about about how Trixie might be feeling at particular points in the story and put their ideas into a sentence. We particularly thought about capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Some amazing sentences were produced! Well done!
In maths, we have been looking at counting backwards, thinking about how the numbers get smaller each time. The children had to work out what the missing numbers were when counting backwards.
In science, we have been learning what the word 'waterproof' means. The children were given a challenge, to find out which material would be best to make a jacket for Henry the teddy bear. The children tested out a variety of different materials to find out if the material was waterproof or not. We discussed how we would know if the material was waterproof and what would happen to the water. The children then recorded their findings and decided which material was the best one to use for Henry's jacket.
In history, the children compared old and modern teddy bears. We discussed how they were different and how they have changed over time.
Here are photographs of what else we have been up to throughout the week. We had lots of fun completing our Rainbow Challenges.
Here are the Rainbow Challenges for next week.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. See you next Monday!
