Year 1 Learning
Science in Year 1
In science this half term, children have been learning about material. Children sorted a range of items by their materials and talked about how we know what each material is. They then discussed the properties of different materials and sorted materials by these for example: plastic and glass can be transparent.
Year 1 Maths – Shapes
In Year 1, children have been recapping their understanding of 2D and 3D shapes. They went on a shape hunt around the classroom to see which shapes are all around them! They then discussed the names and properties of shapes and used vocabulary including faces, edges, vertices, sides, curved and straight.
History – Toys
This half term, children in Year 1 have been finding out about the history of toys. We rented a box from the Cambridge Folk Museum which contained old toys. Children talked about the materials that the toys were made out of and discussed changes that have happened to toys over the years. They loved exploring these in our busy learning session. Children then had a range of old and new toys and attempted to put these in age order.
At the start of half-term Year 1 looked at fireworks. We learnt a poem about fireworks, thought about the different sounds fireworks make, wrote acrostic poems and created our own firework art using chalk and paint.
