The last week of this half term brings the end of our current topic on ‘Space,’ and what a topic it has been! The atmosphere in Year 1 has been incredible over the last few weeks. Out of this world, you might say.
This week in Literacy we have been working doubly hard. We have been researching and creating our own class ‘Space’ non-fiction books in the computer room, and have been improving our computer skills as we’ve been going.
In Maths we have been working hard to share. We went on a space picnic where we shared all of the snacks into equal groups. Aren’t we thoughtful? We also had a go at recording our sharing as number sentences. Very impressive stuff!
Well that’s it for this half term. See you all on Thursday 1st June for our final half term in Year 1! (Where has the time gone)?!
Have a lovely break,
The Year 1 Team
1NM had a fantastic time this week at the Science Centre. Here are a few snaps from our trip:
Welcome to the weekend! Sit down, relax – doesn’t it feel nice? It’s been another exciting week in Year One. Grab a cup of tea and listen to the main events:
In Maths we have been practising our multiplication skills. We can count and group in multiples of 2, 5 and even 10! We’ve even been trying out different ways of showing our working out and answers. Very impressive stuff!
In Literacy it’s been all things non-fiction. We’ve identified the features of non-fiction texts, answered questions, matched facts and we even began organising information into our own non-fiction texts. It has been a very busy week!
In topic we had a good look at the special features of an astronaut’s space suit (they are seriously high tech)! and had a go at designing our own futuristic space suits. It was lots of fun thinking of the different things an astronaut might need!
That’s another week down! Until the next one,
The Year One Team
Happy Friday! It’s been another lovely week in Year One. Here are the main points to keep you in the know:
In Maths we worked really hard to find the best ways of adding 3 numbers together. We tried putting the biggest number first, looking for number bonds, looking for doubles – it took some time but I think it’s fair to say: 3 is a magic number!
In Literacy we were on the hunt for a new moon (I’m not sure if you got the memo, but the moon has disappeared)! After a think and a search we decided that some possible replacements for the moon include: a Pokemon ball, a meatball, butter, a clock and maybe even a teacher’s face! We’re still undecided, but we did come up with some fantastic adjectives to describe these potential moons!
In Topic we learnt all about Tim Peake and what it takes to become an astronaut. We’ve even filled in our own applications to become astronauts. Exciting stuff!
Well that’s it from us, have a lovely weekend!

1NM had loads of fun transforming themselves into astronauts for our new ‘Space’ topic!
This week we made parachutes for our eggstronauts! We wanted to make sure they reached the ground safely.
Look what happened…..
Only one survived.. Well done North!
We have loved learning about Neil Armstrong this week! Ask us what we have learnt and I’m sure we can tell you some interesting and fun facts!
