Year 1 WC 17th November

This week we started learning about an important person in History- Guy Fawkes. The children asked lots of questions and used images and artefacts to work out facts about him. They also learnt about why the Gunpowder Plot happened and who the key people were who were involved. As part of this they acted out the events of the Gunpowder Plot and thought about what each person might have felt.

In Science, the children learnt the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees. We spotted different trees in the school grounds and identified different leaves.

In English, we have been writing our own versions of the story Stuck, following a text map. It has been lovely to see the children writing their first piece of independent writing.

Maths has been challenging this week as we have been learning all about subtraction. We have been working on fact families and fact houses.

We have also enjoyed celebrating anti-bullying week. The children wore odd socks on Monday and we have been on the look out for kind children all week. The good news is there were lots to be found!

Tomorrow is Children in Need day and we are looking forward to celebrating this.
