June 2022 in Year 1

In English we have been reading the story ‘Julian is a Mermaid’ by Jessica Love. We thought about how Julian felt and also how we could describe him turning into a mermaid. We also created our mermaid artwork.

During ‘Sports Week’ we learnt about the Commonwealth country of New Zealand. We learnt about where in the world New Zealand was, as well as recognising some famous landmarks. In PE we looked at the Haka, we learnt that this is a dance performed to show strength and unity by the Maori tribe.

In History we have been learning how seaside holidays have changed over the years. We used a timeline to help use sequence photos from different years.

In Maths we have been exploring division and multiplication. We have been using arrays and sharing circles to help our working out and understanding.

In Computing we have been learning how to take digital images. We looked at how to use zoom to help use focus on the object as well as thinking about where the object is in the frame.

This month we also had great fun visiting Southend for the day.
