We have been really persevering to use subtraction in our maths learning; thinking about how we take away. We started using objects and cubes to help us know what to do.
In PE we have been working all half term on learning a jungle dance. We have been thinking about different ways of moving our bodies and how we feel after we have exercised. Hope you like our moves!

In our Literacy learning we have been trying to use adjectives to make our sentences more exciting! These are some of the adjectives and sentences we have been writing.
We used the iPads and Google Earth to try and find some local places in Manningham. We had a look at Miriam Lord and tried tgo see if we could find our houses from there, thinking about the way we walk to school. We also found Hanfia Mosque, Morrisons and Lister Park.
Year 1 have been using objects to add by combining two groups. We discussed what the add (+) and equals (=) symbols meant.
We stretched our perseverance muscle to then add using a number line and record our addition number sentences.
We created our own printing block by arranging different styles of pasta in a pattern. We had great fun getting creative!
As part of our Science topic on materials we discussed different properties of materials. We made links to the story 'The Three Little Pigs' and our materials knowledge to build a strong and waterproof house at The Den. Luckily some of us manage to survive the attack from the Big Bad Wolf!
Year 1 discussed what rules are and why we have them. We collaborated to create some classroom rules and promised to always follow them.
We talked about what is meant by the words 'fair' and 'unfair' and how we behave can affect other people in a negative or positive way. We thought about some scenarios and had to decide if they were fair or unfair.
