Year 1


We have been reading and following instructions in our non-fiction work this week. We used the instructions to make the traditional toy; a cup and ball. The following lesson we wrote our own instructions for how to make one. We included different time conjunctions to sequence the sentences. 


This week in maths, we have been learning to count forward and backwards in multiples of 2, 5 and 10. We have been able to identify missing multiples using number tracks and carry on counting in patterns of 2, 5 and 10 starting at different multiples in a sequence.


In maths, we continued to work with money, looking at the value of coins and notes and how use them to make different combinations. We then progressed onto solving money word problems. During the lessons, we used the website Topmarks, which has a range of interactive games relating to money, a great go-to for further practise at home! 


In Science we have grouped animals according to what they eat, sorting animals into the categories of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.


In RE we discussed what a moral is. After listening to the text The Boy Who Cried Wolf, the children acted out the story in two groups. Bass and Alex.W both did a fantastic job as the narrators retelling the story in their own words.


We have continued to work very hard in rehearsals this week for our nativity – our first audience joined us, from Quainton pre-school for our dress rehearsal today!


The highlight of our week was of course, decorating the Christmas tree on the village green with our angel decorations. Thank you to the parents who were able to join us.
