Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.

Editing a story

Today the children edited the story of The Three Little Pigs. They changed the characters and the settings of the story. 

They began by creating a story map which they then used to write the story. The children used word banks and sound mats to help them.

Year 1’s trip to Warwick Castle

On Tuesday 13th March all of Year 1 went to Warwick Castle. We had a lovely day and all the children were really well behaved. We learnt so much about castles and it has helped us with our Once Upon a Time topic. 

Today we have been writing recounts of our trip. Here is some of our lovely writing.

Sharing equally 

In maths we worked hard on halving numbers and objects equally into 2 groups. Some of us even tried sharing equally into 3 groups! We used the language of half, halving, same, equal, sharing and groups.
