Year 1 have had a lovely week! We have enjoyed describing a setting from the story of the Snail and the Whale. We discussed what a noun is and how we could describe it using adjectives. Then we used our senses to describe what the snail might see, hear, smell, taste and touch and wrote some sentences. In geography, we learnt about the five oceans and learnt a song to go with them. We have explored the continent Asia and learnt about some popular Chinese traditions including making lanterns. In maths, we have been learning all about addition. We have been writing addition sentences and using tens frames to solve them. We have continued to learn about Mae Jemison and thought about how proud she would have felt to overcome her fear of heights and become the first African-American woman to travel into space. We also thought about all the amazing things we can be proud of, for example learning to ride a bike and all our fantastic learning in school. We really loved sharing these with our buddy classes.
