This week, Year 1 have been using cubes to measure items. To fit in with the Christmas theme, the children used cubes to measure and cut up strips of paper to make a Christmas tree. They started off with the longest strip at the bottom and gradually got smaller towards the top to create the look of a Christmas tree.
Year 1 have been looking at the story of ‘Handa’s Surprise’. As a class, we created a story map and actions to go with each picture. The children thoroughly enjoy performing the story of Handa’s surprise using these actions. In addition to this, they also came up with a list of questions that they would love to ask Handa if they had the chance to meet her.
During RE this week, Year 1 have been exploring God’s creation and Harvest Time; showing their thanks and appreciation for His special gifts. The children completed a variety of activities to show the gifts that they are grateful for at Harvest Time. This included making a number of fruits and vegetables from playdough, cutting and sticking different foods in to a basket and writing a selection of keywords which will be used when the children write their own ‘Thank You’ psalm.
