Today we started our ‘Rainbow challenges’ in class. We have to complete 6 challenges in continuous provision. For each challenge we complete, we get a coloured stick and after collecting all 6, we will have a rainbow 🌈
We are so excited about this. Look at some of the great learning that happened today…
When I make my rainbow I will come home with a certificate and my name will go in a pot to be in with a chance of winning a prize at the end of half term. Continue reading “Rainbow Challenges 🌈”
We have been enjoying some changes to our room whilst in continuous provision.
we love our new reading and maths areas!
Today we made cookies. Tomorrow we will write instructions. Keep a look out for some fantastic writing…
Last week we made bread just like the Little Red Hen 🍞 We followed the instructions carefully and worked together to mix the ingredients, kneed the dough and shape it into rolls.
Today we sequenced pictures to show the instructions that we followed.
Tomorrow we will write some instructions. Keep a look out for our fantastic writing…

Some Year 1 children followed some simple steps to help them write super sentences in English.
Step 1 – Say the sentence
Step 2 – Read the sentence
Step 3 – Order the sentence
Step 4 – Build the sentence with one cube for each word
Step 5 – Say the sentence again
Step 6 – Write the sentence one word at a time, getting rid of a cube after each word
In Year 1 last week we used stones to make repeating pattern art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. We made circle art because Andy Goldsworthy always has a black circle in the middle of his art work.
We labelled some of Goldsworthy’s art work before we created our own.
We have started to look at addition in Maths. We started off by counting how many altogether. We used a part, part, whole model to help us.
Miss Crawley introduced us to her friends – Mr Add and Mr Equals. We can use our arms to show each sign…
Some of us have been writing number sentences using dice and cubes.
When we came into school this morning we found this…
We did some investigation work…
These are the clues we found…
We thought of some questions…
We found out that story is ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We are very excited and can’t wait to learn more!
Year 1 have been showing their reasoning skills in maths this week.
Bob said “I can make all of the numbers from 11 to 20 using the digits 1 to 9.”
The year 1 children had to see whether Bob was right or wrong. They worked in groups with the digits 1-9 and worked systematically to see if they could make the numbers 11-20.
Mossab said “We can’t make 11 because we only have one number 1”
Adbullah noticed that “We can’t make the number 20 because there is no 0”
As a group we decided that Bob was wrong because we could only make the numbers 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19.
