YEAR 1 : Hughes and Waddell

Term 1
What have we been learning?
This term we have been learning about animals and have looked at different animal groups. The children have been identifying amphibians, mammals, reptiles, birds, invertebrates and fish. In literacy, we have looked at lists, labels and captions, learning an autumn poem as well as learning our story ‘Tiny Little Fly’. In maths, we have practised lots of pattern recognition, as well as counting to and from 100. We have had lots of fun counting 100 cheerios, cubes, pasta and straws! In art we have been printing in different ways and have made some art in the style of Andy Warhol.
