Open Box Theatre Company visited Year 1!

Look at all the fun that we had in our 'Minibeasts' workshop. We took part in lots of role play, pretending to be creep crawlies and we even had a go at using some paint!

Room on the Broom -Julia Donaldson

Our author of the month (September) is Julia Donaldson. We have been reading lots of Julia Donaldson books in school.

 

Coincidentally we had a "witch" lose all her items (a hat, a sock, a skirt, a broom) in our school grounds. We investigated what could have happened and have used this as inspiration in our English lessons.

 

Over the last couple of weeks the witch has left us clues about who she is and what could have happened. She wrote a letter back to Molly, lent us her story book of 'Room on the Broom' and even sent us a video of her adventure.

 

Check out the pictures below of all the exciting things that have happened so far.

In Year One we have been learning all about place value with numbers 0-30. We have been representing the numbers in lots of different ways: using Numicon, using multilink, using numerals and even using words! We have been looking at where numbers are on numberlines and also thinking about one more and one less. Please support us at home carrying on our learning by practising our number bonds to 10 and to 20.
