September 2020 in Year 1

In English we have been reading a story all about a journey to an imaginary world. We have been exploring feelings as well as adding captions to scenes from the story. We made our very own lanterns to help us find our way on our own journey and added a wish to each one, they are on display alongside some of our brilliant pieces of writing.

In Maths we have been leaning about positional language. We have been practicing left and right as well as half and whole turns. We have also been looking at different ways of representing number, subsidising number and recognising patterns in number using dominoes, cubes, counters, beads and even our fingers.

In Science we have been learning all about materials and finding out what materials things are made of.

We have been enjoying our topic The Great Fire of London and finding out what it was like to fight fires then compared to now.
