April 2021 in Year 1

In April in Year 1 we have been learning about our new topic the rainforest. We have been learning about the different layers of the rainforest and the animals that live in each layer.

In Maths we have been learning about measure, we tried to guess which items would be heaviest and then checked using the pan balances. We also learnt about money focusing on 2s, 5s and 10s. We started division by thinking about sharing.

In English we looked at fantasy stories, we went on a scavenger hunt to find objects from different types of stories and tried to sort them into the right kind of story. We then planned our own fantasy setting, characters and problems ready to help write our own fantasy story.

In Science we have been learning all about humans and how we grow. We labelled the different parts of our bodies and thought about what foods are healthy and unhealthy and how they help us to grow.

In RE we have been learning about Judaism, we learnt about Shabbat and why it is special to Jewish people. In PSHE we have been learning about relationships and people who are special to us.

We have been listening to music from other countries including Japan, Brazil and Kenya. We have also been learning how they say hello in these countries.
