Welcome to Year 1
In Maths this week we have been learning how to subtract using objects and pictures.
In English we have been using 'describing words' (adjectives) to describe the Fire of London.
On Wednesday we had our own Fire of London on the field which was very exciting! We all enjoyed seeing the flames burn our houses and were surprised by the way the wind made the fire spread just like the real Fire of London (scroll down to see the slide show). We all wrote a recount of the morning and were able to practise using our describing words creating some wonderful pieces of work.
In Topic we have been describing our dinosaur clay models.
We are also beginning to practise our songs for the Christmas Nativity play. There will be a letter coming out soon telling you all about it and what costumes we need.
Scroll further down the page to find out more about Year 1 and to see some photographs of what we have been doing.
