Year 1

Autumn Term

We started this term by looking at different types of weather.   We used the book 'Elmer and the weather' by David Mckee to learn how to write a recount.  We also devised, carried out and analysed a sceince experiment by making rain gauges.  We are now looking at how to write a list using the book 'Oliver's Vegetables' by Vivian French.  We are also learning about different types of flowers and tress and how different things grow.  This will all help us to answer our project question 'Which vegetables make the bext soup?' and we are looking forward to making soup for all our parents and carers to try!

We have also been very busy with our maths learning.  We have been learning how to add, how to mkae number bonds and we are now starting to look at subtraction.

After half term, we are looking forward to doing an art project and then getting ready for Christmas!

After half term, we will be looking at the Royal Family and looking forward to our trip to Windsor Castle.

Summer Term

This term, we have been learning how to write letters because we have created a link with a school in Australia!  We have sent our letters to them and we are eagerly waiting for our replies!  We have also been comparing Brisbane in Australia to Bracknell and discussing the geographical differences and similarities.  As part of our science learning, we have been learning how to classify different animals and discussing which animals make good pets.  We are looking forward to our trip to Marwell Zoo next week to finish of an exciting term of learning!
