English - Dear Zoo

In English we have been reading ‘Dear Zoo’ by Rod Campbell.  We planned the animals that we wanted to include in our books and then wrote our own version of the story. We tried to use interesting punctuation in our writing and adjectives to describe the animals. We invited  the  Reception Class to Year 1  and we read the original story to them and then shared our own books with them. We were proud of our work and enjoyed sharing our work with our younger friends. Take a look at the pictures to see us as proud authors sharing our work.

Maths - 2D shapes

In Maths we worked in pairs to make 2D shapes. We had to think carefully about the properties of the shapes before we made them ensuring they had the correct number of sides and corners. We even labelled them! Look at the photos to see the shapes we made.


Art - Mural Tiles

In Art we have been studying buildings and the shapes and patterns we see in them. We have sketched our school and designed a tile with a school theme to make a class mural of our school building. Look at the photos to see us following our designs and making our tiles.
