Happy Easter!

We have reached the end of our second term in Year 1, and we have had a really fun time. 

The highlight of our week was the egg rolling and egg decorating competition! Take a look here for the eggcellent (I had to do it!) entries

This week we also had the pleasure of visiting St. Mary Magdalene church and we were able to ask the questions we have been exploring in RE. The children enjoyed the visit and really enjoyed drawing features of the church when we returned. Thank you to all of those who joined us on the trip and made it possible for us to go. Take a look at the photos from our visit here

Over this term we have learnt all about old and new toys, how to categorise animals based on their features and diets and how to make paint prints just like Andy Warhol! In maths we have continued learning how to add and subtract within 20 and are now able to count all the way up to 50! We are starting to master counting in 2s, 5s AND 10S all the way to 100. When we return after Easter, we will be finishing our weight and capacity unit then starting to learn how to multiply and divide. It would be great if you could continue to work on your Doodle Maths as I will be setting some extras to keep your maths minds working. 
Check out Miss Hopwood's maths blog to see how you can sign up for our Easter doodle challenge. 

Our topic for Summer 1 will be Splendid Skies, and we will be exploring the seasons and weather around the world in more detail. To prepare your child for this topic, please take a look at the home learning ideas attached to the bottom of the blog. 

Please continue reading with your child over the Easter holidays as this will help them prepare for the phonics screener which will be taking place towards the end of Summer 1 (more information on this will be shared with you when we return).  I have also sent your child home with a learning pack today, and it would be fantastic if you could find some time to complete a few of these activities.

Have a lovely break and keep your fingers crossed that the sun makes another appearance before we are back to school on Tuesday 19th April.
