Elements Day

 

We enjoyed learning about the elements and loved dressing up as earth, wind, water, snow, fire, air and the night sky!

We launched our rockets!

Length and Height

In maths we have been learning about length and height. We lined ourselves up in the playground in height order to see who was the tallest and who was the shortest. We also measured objects using non-standard units. Then we measured ourselves using straws to see how many straws tall we were. We have also used the suffixes –er and –est to compare objects.

Maths – odd and even numbers

 

We learned about odd and even numbers and then sorted the numicon pieces into a chart. We learned that even numbers always end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 and that objects can be put into pairs if numbers are even.  

Religion – Lenten Promise

 

We have been learning about Lent and reflected on how we can become more like Christ. We each made a Lenten promise and wrote it on a cross to show our commitment to God.

Religion – Palm Sunday

 

We learned about the story of Palm Sunday. Then we used sequencing cards to retell the story to our partners. We enjoyed using our reading skills to tell the story.

Maths – using standard units for measuring

We learned about rulers and measuring in centimetres. We measured lots of objects from around the classroom and recorded our work in a chart.

Science Week – Rockets

 

In year 1 we celebrated Science Week by making straw rockets, water bottle rockets and paper rockets. We predicted which rockets would launch the best and why. Then we tested our rockets by launching them in the playground.

Religion – Stations of the Cross

 

We learned about the events of Good Friday. We read the Stations of the Cross and then spent some time in private reflection thinking about the sacrifice Jesus made for us.

World Book Day

 

We enjoyed dressing as our favourite characters from books.
