What a lovely couple of weeks we have had in year 1. It has been wonderful to welcome all the children back to school. The bubbles have been filled with excitement, laughter and fantastic learning.
For the last two weeks, we have been exploring our new Geography unit- Japan. We have used our mapping skills to identify where Japan is in the world as well as look at physical Geographical features. This week we have been busy exploring the culture of Japan. The children have: practiced calligraphy, learnt some Japanese, designed their own kimonos, practiced origami and made some menus.
It has been a busy week in Maths, where we have been measuring weight. We have used scales to balance weights and objects.
It has been our final week on “The Tiger who came to Tea”. The children have written shopping lists, party invitations and used adjectives to describe a tiger.
Thank you for all your hard work with your children during lockdown. It is clear to the year 1 team that a lot of fantastic teaching went on!
