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 enjoyed learning about Creation and all the wonders of the world. We are now experts on what God made and what is man-made.

In maths, you can see some of us making two digit numbers with numicon!

Term 2

Year 1 really enjoyed our Starry Night topic that we learnt about last term and we saw some fabulous learning taking place both in the classroom and at home. The term started with a trip to “We the Curious” and the children loved the day out and produced some fantastic recounts.

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 very talented artists!

In maths we focussed on number and shape. In the pictures you can see some of our year one working hard to create 3D shapes accurately using plasticene.

In English the children became totally absorbed in our class book “Emily Brown and The Thing.” The children loved this book and produced some wonderful writing including some wonderful descriptions. The children are trying hard to use adjectives in their writing.
