The Year 1 children have settled well into their classes. We have started the half term establishing routines and introducing the new curriculum.
Explosion into Topic Day
Year 1 began their Autumn 1 half term with an Explosion into Topic Day around this half term's topic of Old and New Toys. The children had the chance to make marionettes, jack in the boxes, thaumatropes and dolly peg dolls.
The children were also given the opportunity to share their lovely Toys from The Past Holiday Projects which they had been working on over the summer.
We have started the year off in Mathematics working on our fluency in Place Value. The majority of the children are now confident with counting forwards and backwards to 20 and have been able to answer reasoning and problem solving questions.
The Year 1 children have been representing the number bonds to 10 in different ways including using a tens frame, the part whole model and writing number sentences.
