Year 1 blog- 12th January
There have been lots of new topics started this week.
In History, we compared then and now. We looked at different artefacts from the past and present and talked about how life has changed. The children were introduced to chronology and had lots of fun creating their own timelines.
In RE, we started to learn all about Judaism. We spent time looking at Jewish artefacts and thought about why these were special.
In Maths, we used our knowledge of numbers to 20 to partition teen numbers into tens and ones. The children used diennes for the first time and enjoyed thinking about how many tens and ones were in each number.
Despite the weather, we managed to have our first basketball lesson. The team were impressed with the children’s focus when attempting dribbling.
The children were also put to the test in our second health and fitness lesson. Here they have to work in teams to complete circuit based fitness activities.
In Music, the children continued to work on using pitch and rhythm. This weeks super hero was batman. Lots of laughter was had when we explored what the batman theme tune sounds like with different pitches used.
