Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.

Once upon a time…

In Computing, we used one of our 5 keys – Working together. We used this when we made a Puppet Pal film about a fairy tale. Two pairs of hands are better than one as we can move more characters on screen at the same time, and… We can use different voices to tell the story.

Working as a pair is something we found tricky and we will try working on this key again.

Can you make puppets at home to tell a Fairy Tale?

This week we are learning

Numeracy
This week we will be learning to count and recognise coins by finding totals. We will also be learning how to find change by role playing in our class shop and using our money. To help at home you could look at real coins together (1p, 2p, 5p, 10p and 20p) and find different ways to make totals e.g. 3p =2p +1p. You could also have a go at playing some of the money games on ICT games.

Research experts

Year 1 became research experts today through researching hammerhead sharks by watching a video.

We learnt how to take notes while watching a video using bullet points to organise our information. We then came together as a group to share what we found and sort our information.

We were also perfect partners and helped our friends if they got stuck. Have a look…
