Year 1 have been working hard this week! We have started a new unit in English where we will be working towards creating our own information booklets so we looked at lots of non-fiction books and picked out the key features. Our Forest School session was a very rainy one this week but that didn't stop us! We were using a memory game to help learn the names of some trees and showing true perseverance in using fire steels to start our own fires. We celebrated the NSPCC Number Day on Friday where we dressed up in clothes with numbers on and played lots of number games. The week finished with a visit from the Improve It partnership to deliver a 'Challenge Yourself' session where we worked in small groups and then as a whole class to complete some physical challenges.

In Geography this week the children have been using a compass to find North, East, South and West. We learnt that an aerial view is from above and that things sometimes look different. We used Google Earth to discover what our school playground and surrounding area looked like from an aerial view. The children drew a map of their journey to school in Elm and included physical and human features such as the church, monument, pond, playground and shop.
In English Year 1 have been reading the book 'Incredible Me!' by Kathi Appelt. Today the children wrote autobiographies about how spectacular they are. The children used wonderful vocabulary, capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in their writing. Incredible writing Year 1.
Year 1 have had a busy and very active week! We had an exciting Key Skills session for PE where we played games to work on developing our skills for games such as running. We also hosted class talent show where we showcased our amazing skills such as colouring, football and jumping! This was to introduce our new book 'Incredible Me' for our English lessons. This week we also had our first Forest School session. As it was someone's birthday, we made nature party hats! We also did lots of den building which involved team work and negotiation skills.
