St Teresa's Catholic Primary School

Year 1

 Term 1

 

We started the term thinking about how much we have grown and talked about the past, the present and the future. Dee, an elderly visitor came in and told us all about the toys she used to play with when she was young. Some of them were over 70 years old!

We loved reading The Snail and the Whale and writing our own versions of the story.

In science we had fun blindfolding each other and seeing if we could guess different objects using our sense of smell or our sense of touch.

In RE we went outdoors and created lovely pictures using things from nature.

In maths, you can see some of us ordering numbers from 11 to 20.

Term 2

Starry Night

Year 1 really enjoyed our Starry Night topic from last term and you saw, at the Art Exhibition, our wonderful creations! By selling our framed “Starry night” pictures, we have been able to save some money towards buying some beanbags for our reading area.

The children really enjoyed painting in the style of Vin Gogh and we really couldn’t tell the difference between the original and those painted in year one! We have some talented artists!

In maths we focussed on number and shape. You can see in the pictures the children making pictures from 2d shapes and identifying them. Year one also made 3d shapes using plasticene.

In English the children loved interviewing each other as characters from “Emily Brown and The Thing.”
