Year 1 have had such a positive start to the new school year. We have really enjoyed our topic of ‘Toys’ and learning all about how toys have changed over time.
Most recently, we went on an educational visit to the Beaney, where we participated in a workshop all about Victorian toys. We had such a great time and saw so many interesting things there. We had the opportunity to play with toys from the past and also make our own marbles from clay.
In maths, we have been learning our numbers to 10. We have been learning how to add and subtract and practising our number bonds to 10. We have been using lots of practical resources to help us to this.
In English, we have have listened to lots of fantastic books based on toys. We recently heard ‘Lost in the Toy Museum’ and one of our tasks was to design a new toy for a toy museum. This inspired us to write some great descriptions about our toy.
We have had fun in PE: learning how to play hockey and also learning a dance to ‘March of the Toys’.
On the International day of Languages we were happy to come into school wearing the colours of the French flag. Throughout the day, we participated in lots of fun activities where we learned all about France.
Some of us also enjoyed having our dads come into school and help us design and make our own board game. We wrote some instructions on how to play our board game during English.
