'Success for all, in all we do'

Year 1 Blog- 16th October

It has been another busy week in Year 1!

In maths we have been building on our knowledge of greater than, less than and the same as by using their symbols <  >  = Children have also been ordering three numbers from fewest to greatest and greatest to fewest. 

In English, children have continued to enjoy reading The Wizard of Oz and have been retelling the first part of the story in their writing. They were focusing on re-telling the story in order, using finger spaces and full stops. 

During our science lessons, children have been been learning how to make observations and record information about the weather. They learnt about the intervention of rain gauges and worked together to make their own. They recorded how much rainfall there was each day by looking at the scale on the gauges. 

As part of Black History Month and to link with our Splendid Skies topic, the children have been finding out about the life and achievements of astronomer Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock. They were fascinated by her love for science and impressed by the telescope and observatory that she was involved in building. Watch our presentation below to discover what they learnt!

Have a lovely weekend,
