Year 1 | with Miss Wilson

Archive for September 2017

We have been reading the story ‘Tell me a dragon’ written by Jackie Morris. This has inspired us to write about our own dragons.

We have created a word bank of adjectives to help us write our sentences.

Here are our sentences that we have written independently. We have used capital letters, finger spaces, adjectives and full stops. Oliver L and Oliver B even included similes in their writing!

Miss Wilson is super impressed with everyone’s sentences.

This half term our topic is Knights and Dragons.  We will learn about the different parts of a castle and their features. We will also think about how a castle was defended and the different weapons used to attack! We will think about what life was like as a knight and what it was like to live in castle. Our topic will be brought to life with a trip to Conisborough Castle.

In maths we have begun learning about place value, reasoning and problem solving through the use of Numicon and other mathematical equipment including natural materials in the playground.

In English we are reading story ‘Tell me a dragon’ by Jackie Morris  and becoming familiar with this so that we are inspired to use adjectives and write sentences about our own dragon next week.

We have had a busy week in year 1, with lots of children setting wonderful examples and receiving leaves on our achievement tree.

Keep visiting our blog to see what we have been up to each week.
