A busy last week of term in Year 1! We have been learning about missing numbers and subtraction in Maths. We have been writing our own senses poems in English. In PE, we have been using all our ball skills to play a game called 'Gateway' and we created our own games to support our learning on fitness.

Some of the children's writing will be displayed in our classroom and on our WOW WALL in the classroom. Please look when you visit the classroom for parents' evening. In Maths, we have been adding using number bonds to 20 and doubling using mental maths to support. In D & T, we used safety knives to chop and cut up fruit for our fruit salads and used our sense of taste to taste our fruit salads. In PE, we have been learning how to catch and complete different circuits of exercises to stay fit and healthy. We finished our week with some parent challenges, playing games, completing jigsaws and building using the construction toys! A fantastic week in terms of learning!
