Welcome to Buttercup Class

In maths we have worked through sharing into groups (division). The children have practised sharing different amounts into different numbers of equal groups. This progressed onto finding half and a quarter of objects and quantities. The children could practise being able to remember how many pieces something is split into if it is in half, and the same for quarters.

It would be good for the children to continue to practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s both forwards and backwards to give them a really solid understanding of the number system. After half term we will be looking at time and setting a clock to show o'clock and half past times. 

We have continued to use used some special actions to help us with our story telling. We have actions for 'first', 'next', 'after that', 'because', 'but' and 'finally'. We have been thinking about the story of 'Little Red Riding Hood' and have written a retell of this story. During science week our writing was based mainly of our feathered friends The Chicks. The children had an amazing time watching them grow and it was a really valuable time for the development of their scientific enquiry skills. They also took part in a few different science experements involving eggs which they wrote up on a special investigation template. 

Year 1 Keywords- These have now all been covered and we expect that all children will spell these words correctly.
