This week we have been identifying 2D shapes and describing their properties. Watch the video below to remind yourself of the names of the shapes.

Shapes Song 2 – YouTube

We went on shape hunt around the school to count how many shapes we could spot.

For your home learning this week, go on a 3D shape hunt.

3D Shapes I Know (solid shapes song- including sphere, cylinder, cube, cone, and pyramid) – YouTube

You can draw the shapes you see, write a list of the shapes or make a tally chart like the one below.

In Science we have been looking at trees and plants. As part of your home learning this week you will be getting a Tree Hunt sheet. Over the half term you could go on a walk around your local area/park to see how many different trees you can identify.

This week is the last in a busy half term so make sure you also take some time next week to relax and enjoy your time off. We look forward to seeing you all in June for the start of the next Summer Term!

Jubilee Bunting in 1S

We have had a very busy week so far in 1S, getting ready for our class assembly tomorrow and preparing for Friday’s celebration.

Don’t forget that on Friday we will be having a whole school picnic to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee. We are also having a ‘Red, White and Blue Day’ where you can wear clothes of that colour.

We made bunting ready to celebrate. Can you guess where we got our inspiration from?

1S Last Tennis Session

Today was our last tennis session. Unfortunately the wet weather meant that we had it in the hall rather than at the tennis courts. We still managed to practise lots of skills and enjoy our session.

Take a look at the pictures below to tell someone at home what activities you did today.

Here are our thoughts about our half-term of Tennis…

“It was fun and enjoyable” – Ida

“I enjoyed it because we practised tennis with the rackets.” – Bernado

“I enjoyed tennis today throwing the bean bag and the ball” – Ivy

“I like learning about tennis” – Lydia

“I like playing tennis because I love the volleying with the balls.” – Archie

“I liked it because we practised lots of different things and it was really fun” – Rae

“I like it because I like the activities. ” – Romilly

“I like tennis because it was so fun and we can learn different things” – Saanjana

“I liked it because we practised with the tennis rackets and got to send the ball back and our partners had to catch it.” – Almamy

“I like tennis because I like all the games that we played with a ball included in them.” – Rudy

Year 1 Home Learning 19.05.22

This week we have been making observational drawings of fruit and next week we will be learning about where fruit comes from.

For your home learning this week have a go at some of the fruit themed activities below:

25 Healthiest Fruits You Can Eat - Best Fruits to Eat Daily

>Try a new fruit that you haven’t tried before – Draw a picture of it and record how it tasted and whether or not you liked it.

> Write a recipe for a fruit salad – What fruits will you include?

> Research where your favourite fruit comes from. Is it grown in the United Kingdom or somewhere else?

>Complete the fruit wordsearch.

Reading to the… giant!

Last week we were practising telling the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We also wrote the story and decided to read it to someone special!

The giant at the top of the school has been really grumpy recently (he’s usually a friendly giant!!). He has been so grumpy because he has had trouble sleeping. So we read him our stories and managed to send him to sleep!

Parts of a Plant

In Science we have been learning about the parts of a plant and the jobs that each part does. Can you remember any of the names of the parts of a plant?

We then made scientific diagrams of and labelled them.

The parts of the plants we labelled are:






Can you tell someone at home what these parts of a plant are for?

If you want to see the finished pictures – they will be on display in our class assembly on the 26th May!!

This week in Maths we will be counting fruit and vegetables by adding and subtracting.

You can play the games below to help you practise these skills:

You could also play a game at home using items/buttons/stuffed animals. Get someone at home to put a number of items on the table. Count the total. Close your eyes and ask the other person to take some items away. Can you open your eyes and work out how many have been taken away?

Year 1 Home Learning

This week we have been learning to tell the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We have been practising telling the story aloud with actions to help us.

This week, we have also drawn our own story maps. For your home learning, take your story map home and share the story with as many people/pets/soft animals as you can!

In Science, we have been learning about wild flowers. You could use the tally chart to investigate how many wildflowers you can see in your garden, on the way to school or in the park.

Planting Beans

As we are learning the story of ‘Jack and the beanstalk’ we have decided to grow our own beans! We have also been thinking about ways to recycle (we have some very creative children who often make things out of packaging and cardboard boxes).

The adults in Year 1 have been collecting porridge pots from their breakfast – like the ones you can see below:

We drilled some holes in the bottom and now we are using them to plant our beans. Perhaps you have something at home that you could use for planting?

We planted our beans this morning and will be watering and caring for them everyday!
