September 2018 in Year 1

Year 1 have had a very busy few weeks and have enjoyed learning lots of new and exciting things.

In Maths, the children have been representing numbers using different resources and discovered that you can show a number in different ways by regrouping it.

During our Computing lessons, the children have been learning how to log on to the computer independently and locate a program called ‘2Simple Collection’. This program allows the children to practise their mouse control skills through painting a picture, as well as learning to use the keyboard to locate letters.

Year 1 have been visiting the KS1 outdoor area to explore activities from across the curriculum.  Our topic in Science this term is light and dark. The children have been looking at their shadows and discussing how a shadow is formed. We used chalk to draw around each other’s shadows, but when we moved our shadow followed us.
