Why do we have dreams?
Why are dreams so weird?
Why do they get scary?
Many cultures believe what we dream about affects our real life and that we can read our dreams. What do you think about this?
This week MP1 started our TECHNOLOGY learning! We began by looking at optical illusions and how our eyes can sometimes play tricks on us. We then designed our own optical illusion spinners. The results were mesmerizing! We have also begun to think and plan our own puppet designs. Did you know there are so many different varieties of puppets; shadow puppets, finger puppets, sock puppets... to mention only a few. We will continue our puppet making next week and hope to put on a sensational show soon.
So in LITERACY this week we recapped our learning about plurals and when to use has/have. Later on in the week we did several activities to learn and use adjectives. Adjectives are used to describe nouns and what a great bunch of Year 1's we have to do so!
At the end of this week we wrote a report about teddy bears from the past and the present. As we have been learning about teddy bears in History, we were absolute experts in this and wrote fabulous reports. Well done, Year 1!
Year one have been working on their counting skills in MATHS; counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We have also identified odd and even numbers.
This week in LITERACY we have been talking about popular heroes and heroes from our own lives. We then created our very own hero and wrote an imaginative character description about them.
In MATHS we have been learning about multiplication. We used beads to make arrays to match different multiplication number sentences. This was good practise as we then had a go at drawing our own arrays in our books. Take a look at a few examples below.
