We have had a great first week back in Year 1 exploring lots of facts about animals. We have discovered all about the different types of animals and the groups they belong to, how to research them on the internet (www.nationalgeographickids.co.uk), how to describe them and what habitats they live in.

Can you find out any new facts about animals at home? Remember, we can find facts out by 1. Asking others 2. Information books 3. Research on the internet 4. Documentaries…See what you can find out and come and let us know on Monday!

 

In Maths, we have been comparing the relative size of 2 digit numbers by looking at the tens first ‘I know that 4 tens is more than 2 tens therefore I know that 43 is greater than 25’.  We noticed that if the tens were equal, then we had to compare the ones ‘I know that 2 tens is equal to 2 tens but 3 is greater than 1, therefore, 23 is greater than 21’

Next week:

Phonics: ou (shout out loud), oy (toy for a boy).

English: Non-chronological texts with a focus on animals

Maths: Teen numbers (11-19)

Topic: categorising animals into carnivores, omnivores, herbivores
