This week we had lots of fun in Year One!

On Monday we enjoyed working with our teachers, looking through our work and talking about our targets in our work for next term.

In math we have been learning more about the properties and nets of 3D shapes.
In English we have been learning about instructional writing and we are getting really good at this, and we can use specific words.

On Thursday we had our end of term assembly and we wore Arabic dress to school.

Here are some photos of our week.

Maths and MIA!

Wow - a busy week in Year 1! We have been to fantastic workshops at MIA, where we made our very own Terracotta Army. We also welcomed dads into the classroom on 'Men and Maths' day, where they helped us find money during our exciting treasure hunt! The children have really enjoyed learning about money this week and can identify and order UK coins.
