As part of our work on Plants in Science, we focused on the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees. We took part in a range of activities all about trees, including using some trees in our school grounds to do some bark rubbings.
As part of our Food and Nutrition unit of work in D&T- Bring on Breakfast, we made fruit kebabs. We learnt how to prepare the fruit, how to use the bridge and claw grips to safely cut each piece of fruit and how to safely put the fruit pieces on to the kebab stick. We really enjoyed eating our fruit kebabs too!
A big thank you to Miss D who planned some wonderful pirate themed activities for Year 1 to do. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed taking part in their Pirate Adventure!

Dear parents and carers,
Apologies for my illness at the end of the week- I'm now back in class and feeling much better.
Last week we were working on our balanced arguments, and the children will be finishing these off this week, before we move on to something different!
In maths we are continuing with fractions. Last week we did adding and subtracting, and this week we'll finishing subtracting and also try a bit of multiplication.
This week's spellings (tested this Friday) are:
In English this week we have just about finished sentence stacking our disaster stories based on a flood. Next week we will start to plan our own disaster stories.
This week in maths we have started a new topic of measurement. We began by looking at how we can use a ruler to measure accurately in centimetres and millimetres. Later in the week we learnt how to convert between metres and centimetres, and then centimetres and millimetres.
In Science this week we have started to think about our diets and which groups the food we eat fits into, this is part of our topic, Animals, Including Humans. Next week we will begin to think more about the nutrition that we get from food and the effect that it has on our bodies.
In our Health and Fitness PE lesson this week we focused on raising our heart rates in some fast paced games and fitness activities!
This week’s spellings have been set on Spelling Shed; we will have a short test next Tuesday.
Spelling Rule: Adding the suffix ‘–ly’ when the root word ends in ‘-le’ then the ‘-le’ is changed to ‘-ly.’
As part of our work on our Food and Nutrition unit in D&T, we have been focusing on the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. We tasted a variety of fruit that could be eaten as part of a healthy breakfast. This included some fresh, tinned, dried and frozen fruits. After tasting each fruit, we described the fruit using sensory vocabulary.
This week we've been busy rehearsing for our play 'Pirates vs Mermaids'. We've been very impressed with how well the children are doing with learning their lines and song lyrics.
The class seem to be really embracing Times Table Rockstars, which is fantastic. All this additional times table enthusiasm will hopefully help us with our fluency in maths. This week and last week we have been working on division using partitioning to help us and moving onto bus stop method of division. We also looked at correspondence problems, for example, if an ice cream seller has 4 different types of ice cream and 3 different sauces, how many different combinations could they make? Ask your child if they can teach you how to use the bus stop method.
We have been planning and writing our own stories in English based on the Great Chocoplot. Next week we will be editing these. We've also been working on our use of paragraphs and apostrophes to show possession.
In PE we've been practising our basketball skills - following on from our session with Danny Taylor last week looking at ball handling, this week we focused on passing using chest and bounce passes.
On World Book Day we enjoyed sharing our books with year 1 and 2 and some time together in the library.
