Term 1

English

We have been very busy during English this term. At the beginning of the term we looked at the story of Rapunzel and retold it using stick puppets. We then changed the characters and setting in the story to make our own fairy tale mix ups! Some children swapped the Wicked Old Lady for a Big Bad Wolf and some stories included a dungeon or steel house in replacement for the tower. During the following week, we imagined that we were either the Prince or Rapunzel and had been kidnapped from our beautiful kingdom by the Wicked Old Lady and locked up in the tower dungeon. We wrote letters from the perspective of the Prince/Rapunzel, which a bird took from us and delivered to the nearest person, describing what we could see, hear, smell and how we felt. We have been concentrating on making sure all of our sentences make sense and they begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop.

 

Maths

At the beginning of the term we focused on place value in Maths. We looked at the value of each digit in a two digit number. For example: in 12 there is 1 ten and 2 ones, in 75 there is 7 tens and 5 ones. We also looked at partitioning two digit numbers and adding them together. We moved on to securing our knowledge of addition and subtraction with 1 digit numbers and then we looked at the relationship between addition and subtraction number sentences. For example: 13+5=18, 5+13=18, 18-5=13 and 18-13=5. We learnt that in addition we can swap the two numbers around that we are adding but in subtraction we must always start with the largest number.    

 

Topic

During Topic this term we looked at the life of King Henry VIII and his six wives. Did you know King Henry VIII owned and visited Leeds Castle with his first wife Catherine of Aragon? From 1517 to 1523, on King Henry VIII’s demand, Leeds Castle was transformed from a fortified stronghold to a magnificent royal palace. We looked at the different features of an information leaflet and then created our own all about King Henry VIII and his six wives.

We visited Leeds Castle and learnt some more about its History. During the workshop, we enjoyed dressing up as the famous people who lived at Leeds Castle, including: Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII, Catherine Culpepper and Lady Bailey.

Topic

German Wolves have loved the topic of enchanted woodlands this term. They went on an amazing trip to Wildwoods Forest School to enrich their knowledge and understanding of woodlands. Children developed their navigational and scientific skills by going on a bear hunt and finding different trees along the way. They learnt how to build dens and climb trees safely. They explored different types of trees and distinguished the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees, and spotted wild flowers whilst completing a woodland walk. This was a magical experience that all the children thoroughly enjoyed.

 

 

Art/DT

Year 1 have loved exploring different woodland tales this term. One of the classic stories they looked at was The Gruffalo. Children were inspired to come up with their own monster. This was a group project where each group designed an aspect of the monster and thought carefully about how to describe him. Next, the groups put their body parts together to create ‘The Puffalo’. This activity led to various writing tasks such as writing narratives about the Puffalo, poems and wanted posters to stick around the school! Children developed their imagination well throughout this task and loved thinking of creative adjectives to use.

Maths

Some highlight from maths this term were learning about time and doing fractions. Children loved exploring clocks and learning how to read times and make their own times. They also enjoyed learning about fractions and were able to split shapes, objects and quantities into halves and quarters. Children enjoyed lots of practical learning this term and developed their knowledge and understanding well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Science

Year 1 have loved doing science this term. They had a whole week dedicated to science where they learnt about the history of Isaac Newton and explored his discoveries. They performed simple tests related to gravity and thought carefully about which materials would make the best crash mat for Humpty Dumpty to avoid him cracking! They also explored forces and were fascinated by magnets. Children explored whether the force of gravity was stronger or the opposing force.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PE

PE has been very cross curricular this term. When exploring forces in science, children were inspired to make up forces dances to explore the push and pull of forces. They choreographed and performed dances to their peers and developed their co-ordination, balance and counter balance.
