Year 1 Kingfisher Class


 Week commencing 9th July 


Wow! What a wonderful week it's been, the Kingfishers really enjoyed themselves at Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Tuesday. This week we decided to write about our trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park by writing a recount of our day. We made a time line of our day and this enabled the Kingfishers to write down the events of the day in time order. It was great to find out how much the children enjoyed the trip and how well they could describe the  sculptures. 

We have now put our creative heads on, to make our very own sculptures. In science we have been investigating different items that we could use to make our sculptures. The children have made plans of their sculptures and we are hoping to use some different materials e.g.mod rock and clay. 

In Maths we have been recapping 2D and 3D shapes. We have been writing their properties and comparing them by looking at everyday objects.


This week the children have a 3D shape worksheet to complete. In addition, we are concentrating on our high frequency words in our writing, so if the children can write a few sentences about their weekend and use the following words:

it's  like  make  went  when


The children will be making their sculptures next week, please could you save your recycling materials for us to use?


Have a nice weekend
