Come and find out what we have been up to this week!

Year 1

Year 1 have had a busy week practising our songs and poem for our Christmas performance and making our Christmas crafts to sell at the fair! In English we have been reading the story Stickman and re-telling the story using first, next and then in our writing. We have also enjoyed writing letters to Santa and our class Elves! In Maths we have been sorting and making repeating patterns with 2D shapes. We re-capped all the names of the shapes and their properties. In History we discovered what a Victorian Christmas was like and compared it to how we celebrate today. We drew some Victorian toys and Christmas foods.
