If you were in charge of the world what would you do?
How would you make it a better place for people?
If you had the choice to be in charge would you? Why/why not?
We have continued to learn as historians this week and have been learning about the very first teddy bear! We discovered lots of new knowledge about old teddy bears by practising one of our key goals. We used our research skills using secondary sources to find out about the past. Through this we learnt some of the features of old and new teddy bears. Did you know that teddy bears looked very different in the past?
Can you spot any differences between these two teddy bears below?
In LITERACY we started this week learning about plurals. Lots of plurals end with –s or –es. However, we tend to forget to say and write the s at the end very often. In Year 1 we practised a lot with adding s and es to show that there is more than one.
We also practised when to use has or have. We learned about the 1st, 2nd and 3rd person, which was quite tricky. Luckily, lots of us were able to distinguish between has and have.
Which one is correct?
He have/has a cat.
We has/have a swimming lesson today.
In MATHS we have been working on time. We recapped o' clock and half past and introduced quarter past and quarter to.
This week in LITERACY we started a new book called Traction Man. We looked carefully at the illustrations and tried to predict what the characters in the story are thinking. We then used these ideas as thought bubbles. We have acted out the story and we have identified our favourite and most memorable parts.
In MATHS this week we have been learning to handle data. We sorted numbers on a Venn Diagram and then created a tally chart of our favourite toys which we later turned into block graphs. We have become masters of sorting and handling data!
