Year 1 so far in 2022-2023


We had a photo on our first day and thought about what we wanted to be when we grow up. We had a lovely first day and all felt welcome in year 1 - there was nothing to worry about!

In Maths we have been looking closely at numbers within 10. We have used equations and part whole models to find bonds for numbers such as 5, 6, 7 and 8. We have identified more and less and used ten frames to represent numbers. We have worked really hard.

In Science we are looking at the Human Body, its parts and functions. In Geography we are learning about Countries, Cities, Towns and Villages (especially the Towns and Villages around us.) In Music, we are looking at Call and Response songs to sing along and perform. In Computing we have looked at using codes and algorithms to direct a Beebot. We love showing off what we have learned. 

We have started making visits to the library and venturing outside to embrace the changes of Autumn. We have enjoyed the responsibilities of choosing our own book and returning it each week, along with getting on our own coat and boots for Muddy Monday. 

In maths we have worked really hard to add and subtract numbers within 10 using the most efficient method. We discovered that counting on/back from a given number was much quicker compared to counting out all the numbers.

During the Autumn term we went for a walk in the local woods to look for signs of Autumn, focussed on our numbers within 20 in Maths, investigated the best way to join axles, chassis and wheels in DT and the best way to measure rainfall in Science. 

Our Learning in Y1 so far... 2021-2022
