January 2023 in Year 1

In English we have been using adjectives and similes to help us write about a topic. We have also been using contractions and conjunctions to help us write command sentences to tell people what they should and shouldn’t be doing.

In Maths we have been exploring one more and one less as well as looking at odd and even numbers.

In Science we have been learning how to sort and identify. We sorted animals based on their features such as fur or no fur and fin or no fins. We also looked at the key features of what make something living or if it was never alive.

In History we have been learning about Explorers. We looked at the events of Neil Armstrong’s life and plotted them on a timeline. We then read about the life of Robert Scott and answer questions about what we had read.
