Traditional Tales

This week the children in year 1 have been learning the traditional tale Rapunzel as part of their Literacy learning. This is the start of an exciting unit called ‘Twisted Tales’ where children will learn how to re-write a traditional tale from another characters point of view. This week the children have been using lots of different ways and skills to get to know the story well and write it from memory. There has been some fantastic group work going on with children working in small groups to order the events and make story maps to help them re-tell it to others.

Learning in Literacy and Maths

The children in year 1 have had yet another busy week of learning. In Literacy the children have enjoyed finding out about the very exciting Royal Wedding on Saturday. The children watched video clips and looked at photographs in groups to gather as many facts about the day as they could. The children have used these to write about the Royal Wedding and make comparisons with Queen Victoria’s Wedding  which we learned about last week. In maths the children have been starting to develop their place value knowledge and thinking about how to partition numbers from 10 – 20 into tens and ones. The children have loved seeing their number knowledge grow through this and seeing how quickly they can solve calculations using these new number facts.

Learning about Royal Weddings

This week the children in year 1 have been learning all about Royal Weddings in anticipation of Prince Harry’s wedding on Saturday. As part of our history topic the children have found out about Queen Victoria’s wedding and comparing this with modern day royal weddings. The children worked in groups to find out and record facts about Royal Weddings both now and in the past. The children found out some great facts and are using these to complete some fantastic recounts about Royal weddings in their writing this week. At the end of the week we enjoyed a really exciting curriculum day linked to our Victorian topic. We were visited by a Victorian character from the past and found out all about life for children in Victorian times. The children were brilliant sports and all enjoyed being involved.

Year 1 Learning about plants continued

This week year one have continued to learn all about plants in their Science curriculum. The children focused on all the different things plants need to live. The children enjoyed carrying out an investigation to find out what plants need and the importance of each element. The investigation required the children to work in groups to remove one thing a plant needs and see what the effect is. The children will be checking their investigations over the next week to find out the results.

Year 1 Learning about Plants

This week the children in Year one have enjoyed being taught about plants in Science by our Leeds Beckett University student teachers. We have learned different part of plants and what those different parts do. We had lots of fun planting our own plants too! We planted some cress seeds in some kitchen role and we have been keeping a close eye on how they are growing. We can’t wait to see how they have changed next week. On Friday we also had an exciting day in school. With the Tour de Yorkshire coming through Barnsley we spent some time finding out about the race and what happens. We loved learning about the race and developing our knowledge of such a big event that was happening in our town.
