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!
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!
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?
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!
