What a first week back we've had! We've introduced our new text 'The Emperor's Egg' to the children which is all about the journey of an Emperor Penguin. In English, we looked at describing a setting using exciting vocabulary such as desolate, tranquil and sub-zero. The children created some beautiful descriptions where they continued their focus on core writing skills. We have also looked at some facts about penguins. Did you know an Emperor Penguin can grow up to 1.3 metres tall? In Maths, we have been exploring different 2D and 3D shapes and used key mathematical vocabulary to describe their properties. We even began to compare some shapes by looking at their similarities and differences. In Art, we were inspired by the artist 'Paul Klee' where we used different geometric shapes made out of different materials to recreate the front cover of our book. In Geography, we have looked at the different continents and countries that can be found within them by using an atlas. We have had a really exciting first week back and can't wait to learn more!
Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely break!
The Year 1 Team.
