Autumn Term

In Year 1 we have made a really positive start to the new school year. Some of our learning has included:


In pairs we counted out a given number from a large pot of cubes! Then we were challenged to find an amount of objects to count out from our classroom. We took it one step further by going outside and gathering a given amount from the Autumn leaves.


A special, mysterious parcel turned up in class today. We predicted what it could be. We thought it could have been an exciting game or a toy unicorn. When we opened it up it was a Naughty Bus! We were encouraged to ask questions about the bus using the poster we found inside the tin. We shared our experiences of bus travel, where we like to sit and where we have been. Then we looked at some pictures related to buses and wrote some words and sentences about them.


We sang ‘Heads, Knees and Toes’ to get us started, thinking about parts of the body. We drew around one of the children and, as a class, used labels with pictures to lay on the template. After that, we worked collaboratively in small groups to label a picture.   Then we worked in pairs asking questions to test out what we had learnt. We were using our identifying and observational skills as junior scientists!
