Welcome to Summer Term in Year One! 


We are very excited to be back in class after lockdown has lifted. It is great to see everybody's simling faces and to do lots of learning! As it is the summer term, we are trying to be outdoors as much as possible. 

Year one maths has started off with comparing numbers to 20 and working out the difference using practical methods, lining objects up and on tens frames.

We have really enjoyed a two week topic about Henry VIII for our History and non chronological report writing in literacy. We all made some beautiful crowns in DT which also linked us nicely into our next topic- fairytales!

Year 1 are learning all about the features of fairy tales: the power of 3, magic, goodies and baddies, problems and solutions, royalty and special phrase (like 'Once upon a time' and 'Happily ever after'). We have just started to learn the story Cinderella, here we are sequencing it...

We have created our own version of Snow White- 'Snow White in Walkern'! 

Here we are retelling it using our class story map. We have gone on to write it in our books, we are proper authors!
