Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

This term we have been reading the story “Whatever Next”.  The children have enjoyed writing their own stories about travelling in to space.  Next we will be writing our own fantasy stories about pirates.

In Maths we have been busy learning about money and fractions, and adding 2 digit numbers.

Our Science topic is all about plants – we have been on a plant hunt around school and are growing our own bean plants in a bag.  We can already see their roots and shoots have grown!

In our topic we have been learning all about Christopher Columbus and the weather.  We will also be developing our map reading skills.
