Welcome to Year 1
In Maths this week we have been finding as many ways as we can to make a number and also have been solving addition problems using counting objects and pictures. A lot of us still reverse our numbers so any number formation practise would be good.
In English, we have been learning about The Gunpowder Plot and talking about Firework Safety. We wrote our own Firework Code and also wrote a 'letter' to The Fire-fighters to practise letter writing and using question marks.
We have been carrying on learning about The Fire of London and have designed and made our own houses using the boxes we brought in. A few of us need to finish the roofs next week and then we will use them to make London Town on the field. Mr Lewis will start the fire and we will watch our own Fire of London (standing well back behind a barrier of course!). We are very excited so look out for photos next week!
Scroll further down the page to find out more about Year 1 and to see some photographs of what we have been doing.
