This half term we are learning how to log on and off.  We are working with learning partners to help each other, and we are feeling a great sense of achievement when we get on to the home screen by ourselves!

Maths - Addition and Subtraction


To start our new topic off we have learned that a whole can be broken down into parts.  To practice this we used double sided counters that were thrown into the air and we counted up how many were blue and how many were red.  We soon realised that the amount in the parts could change but the whole stayed the same.  We loved this practical activity - ask us all about it!

We're Going on a Bear Hunt


During our first few days in Year 1 we spent time learning about the book 'We're going on a Bear Hunt'.  We started off by following some bear paws into the forest that led us to our key text.  We then hunted for other clues that a bear has been in our school....


During the first couple of weeks in Maths we have been focusing on place value.  We have had lots of practical activities to help us learn - ask us about what we know!
