In maths this week, year 1 have been learning about capacity. They have learnt that capacity means how much something holds. They have been thinking about comparing capacity and some have started reading scales. They have also done some problems solving.
To kick off our Around the World topic, year 1 learnt about the four countries of the United Kingdom. To celebrate we had a tea party and enjoyed some cakes. The children and adults had a lovely time.
Year 1 have been making leaflets about how to save the coral reefs. They have also written a letter to the giant, helping him solve the mystery of who stole all of his things.
Under the Sea Music Making
Year one were very lucky to have Andy from The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra to help us compose a song all about being under the sea.
Design and Technology Model Making
As part of our Design and Technology learning, year one children designed, made and evaluated some accessories for characters in stories. We made bags for Goldilocks, boats for the Gingerbread Man and a new house for the Three Little Pigs.
