Year 1

Welcome to Year 1
 
The Year 1 team are Mrs Squires, Miss Mayes and Miss Heggarty.
 
This term in Year 1 we are exploring texts with familiar settings and creating our own story sequences.
As part of our Science curriculum we have planted beans and made our own labels.
 
We predicted how tall we think our beanstalks will grow.
Year 1 have had a very exciting Spring term. They have been looking at all of these things:
 
English - We have been studying the book 'The Legend of Black Rock'. 
The children have really enjoyed orally rehearsing sentences and using new words such as glimpse, unnoticed and luscious. They also wrote their own return stories. 
 
Maths - We are currently looking at place value up to 50. The children have been representing numbers up to 50 in different ways - base 10, part part whole models and 10s frames. 
 
Science - In science the children have planted broad bean seeds. They are growing really well and the children are hoping to be able to take some beans home at the end of the school year.
