Summer

This term our theme is Journeys.

 

Gardening

We have enjoyed learning about the life cycle of plants this term. We planted some beans which we have now transferred to the garden area. We have also learned about wild plants and discovered what type of plants grow in our local area.

Measure

We have been using standard and non-standard units of measure, such as rulers and cubes, to measure the length of different objects. We've then compared different lengths, using the language of short, shorter, long and longer.

Outdoor Learning

Year One have really enjoyed going over to the Forest School site this half term. We've been on mini-beast hunts, built dens, moulded clay faces, pond dipped, and even climbed trees!

Finding Quarters

We have been finding out how to quarter amounts in Maths. We were set with the task to quarter all the different fruits on the tables. The children problem solved to find the most efficient way to do this. They made notes on how many pieces of each fruit they had and then wrote what a quarter of that was. After all that, we got to enjoy a healthy and yummy fruit kebab!

Homework

I have been absolutely wowed by the effort Birch children put in to their Homework on somebody they believe has achieved the impossible. The children shared their work with the class and spoke confidently in front of a captive audience. We all learnt some amazing new things about many different things, such as, gravity defying cakes, time travel, brave family members and the Suffragettes!

Over the next few weeks we will be focussing on the story 'The Snail and the Whale'. The children are already enjoying joining in with repeated refrains and trying to spot all of the rhyming words within!Image result for snail and the whale
