Year One- All about Space

This week in Year One we have been focusing on learning about our new topic Space!


In Creative Curriculum we learned about the first men on the moon and how they got there.
We learned some simple facts and made a 2D space rocket ships!


In Math we learned about 2D shapes and what their properties are. We made some space shape aliens.

In English we looked at writing  instructions, focusing on instructional language such as First, Next Then and Finally. We wrote instructions on how to make a rocket and how we brush our teeth.

In Science we had fun learning about different materials, we enjoyed looking and grouping materials in our environment.

Here are some of our pictures. Enjoy!

Maths and MIA!

Wow - a busy week in Year 1! We have been to fantastic workshops at MIA, where we made our very own Terracotta Army. We also welcomed dads into the classroom on 'Men and Maths' day, where they helped us find money during our exciting treasure hunt! The children have really enjoyed learning about money this week and can identify and order UK coins.
