We have had a really fun week in Year 1, this week.

We finished off our Lila and the Secret of the Rain work by making our own versions in small handmade books. We really loved becoming authors for the first time.


In Maths, were looking at numbers up to 50. We represented them using concrete resources and we continues number sequences. We are getting so confident with our place value knowledge and can explain the value of each digit. 

In Topic, we continued to learn about Africa and more specifically Nairobi. We identified features of the city and went on a photo hunt to find them. We use the photographs to create a pic-collage. We are really enjoying learning about Africa and some of us have been getting creative- making drums, necklaces and painting Savannah landscapes.  

Thank you to those who have sent in T-shirts for our Art project. If you haven’t yet, please send them in next week. 

Have a lovely weekend. 

Year 1 Team.
