Over the past two weeks we have been exploring our Power Of Reading text "Rapunzel," where we have learnt many new exciting words, such as woeful and isolated, to describe Rapunzel and how she might be feeling in her tower. We have also taken on the role of Rapunzel and thought about what she might be doing in her tower and we are going to use this to help us write our own diary entries in role next week. In Maths we have been representing numbers using a ten-frame and consolidating our recognition and understanding of numbers within 10. In Science we have explored different types of materials and have learnt some fantastic words to describe their properties, such as transparent, rigid, waterproof and absorbent. We are going to use our brilliant knowledge of these materials to help us make a ladder for Rapunzel to escape her tall, dark tower. In Geography we had lots of fun exploring different types of maps and seeing what we could spot on them. Have a look at some of our pictures from this week to see just what we got up to!
Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely summer break and are excited to start the new academic year! This week in Suffolk we will be exploring the wonders of space after an exciting letter appeared on our desks from NASA. NASA have asked for our help in the development of an exciting new space school, so this week we are going to get creative and blast off into a learning journey of space where we will explore the different planets and even getting to create our own! The children will be packing their space suitcases and exploring what essential items astronauts need to take into space. They will also research and learn about Neil Armstrong and his first steps on the moon. At the end of the week, the children will be writing a letter back to NASA to inform them of all the wonderful things we have learned about the solar system, and most importantly, to inform the astronauts at NASA what they need for their own space adventure!
The Year 1 Team.
