Mrs Harry and Mrs Garlick have provided the following learning update:
Year 1 have thoroughly enjoyed being back with our peers and back in our classroom. In English, we have immersed ourselves in our new text “Here comes Frankie” by Tim Hopgood. We have been looking at the text as well as the illustrations, we know that colours can be used to project a mood in a story, just like Picasso did! The book looks at a street called Ellington Avenue, where Frankie and his family live and how Frankie is able to change the mood of those living around him by his actions. This links to our topic of “Our Local Area” which enables us to look at where we live in Bexley. We have been looking at different locations in the borough and the history of them, including the Red House and Danson House.
We have also discovered how several famous people lived in Bexley during their lives including author Roald Dahl, illustrator Quentin Blake, athlete Steve Backley and boxer Lennox Lewis. In maths, we began this half term looking at measure, specifically capacity and mass. We tested our knowledge of accurate measuring of liquid by making potions which we really enjoyed. We have improved our understanding of heavier and lighter. We are looking forward to moving onto multiplication and division using arrays and sharing circles, getting us ready for Year 2.
We can’t believe we are heading towards our last term of Year 1!
