Year 1 Week 23

Date: 5th Mar 2020 @ 8:44am

Welcome to our Year One blog.

We had a lovely day yesterday celebrating World Book Day by wearing an accessory that made us a little bit different from everybody else.  We read "Odd Dog Out" and talked about diversity in assembly and generally celebrated the enjoyment of reading.  Earlier on in the week we practised our story writing in Literacy by writing about a magic bottle and have continued to learn and revise more phonemes (wh, ph and qu). In Maths we have been counting in twos and fives.  In Science we looked at how different materials can be changed by heat and we worked scientifically to see what happened when we held a crayon, an ice cube and a chocolate button in our hands.  The squeals of excitement were ear piercing when we had to hold the ice cube and we really enjoyed the part with the chocolate button!  In Art we have been learning about primary and secondary colours and are enjoying mixing paints.

Our homework this week is to look further at how materials around our house can be changed.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

With best wishes from the Year One Team
