Weekly News! w/b 29.11.21

Another fantastic week in Year 1 for both Team Royal and Team Indigo!

This week in Team Indigo and Team Royal we have been learning…

Read, Write Inc.

This week we’ve developed our knowledge of our sounds further, and we’ve seen some fantastic improvement on our set 2 and 3 sounds. Fantastic work so far, any more practice would be very helpful!



This week in Maths we’ve been continuing our work on measuring length.

We’ve moved on to adding lengths together and finding the difference in length between objects. To measure the items, we used cubes and number lines to help us with our counting.

We’ve been getting on well with this using our language from last week, and have understood the meaning of the word ‘difference.’



This week in topic we’ve been learning about science.

We’ve looked at seasons in different countries around the world, and other types of weather such as monsoons and hurricanes. We’ve also conducted experiments to find which materials are waterproof to keep Teddy dry in the rain.

Finally, we’ve also made rain gauges to measure how much rain we have each day of the week. We’ll be watching these closely this coming week and making notes of how much rain we’ve had.

It’s been another fantastic week!

Love 2 Learn

This week, we would love you to design an umbrella for Teddy to keep him dry. Don’t forget what materials we tested, (Paper, Cardboard, Tin Foil, Wood). You can show this in any way you wish, have fun!
