Year 1 – Class 3

Miss Hays

In Class 3 we enjoy working as a team! We enjoy phonics and reading stories. We love PE and exercise. We are really good at Art and drawing. We are learning lots of new things in Numeracy and love learning about Science, especially animals!

Blow the house down!

We have been looking at materials in science and looking at their properties. We used a 'feely' bag to guess what the materials are by describing their features, whether it was hard, soft or 'bumpy'. We made a house for the three little pigs out of different materials...

Smart-ie Maths!

We having been learning about doubling and halving. We have halved objects, shapes and amounts. We learnt how to half amounts by sharing smarties! We enjoyed moving the smarties into two different groups. We were able to halve amounts up to 20. We started to think...

Desert Island Castaways!

A strange letter turned up in Miss Hays' register this week. It was from Professor Bumblebeard, she wanted Class 3 to travel to the Carribean to carry out some archaeological research on pirate artefacts. We planned a list of things we would take with us. However......

More or Less

We have been looking at less than, more than and equal to in Numeracy. We made our own crocodile boards to help us to work out which number the crocodile would eat first and can identify and use the different symbols. We have told our own number stories using less...

Wet! Wet! Wet!

In Science, we have been looking at materials and which materials would be best to make a pirate ship. We talked about waterproof materials and what makes a material sink or float. We discussed different material's properties and if it was bendy, soft or easy to break...

Stories of the Seven Seas

In Class 3, we have been telling our own pirate stories using a story mat. We were able to tell lots of exciting stories about fierce as well as cowardly pirates! We first told our story as part of a group and then we started to plan our story using a story map before...

Super Dojo Judo!

Class 3 really enjoyed taking part in special Judo sessions this week. We enjoyed taking part in the different games and activities, including moving around the mat whilst balancing a bean bag on our head!  

Architects of 3D Shape

In Class 3, we have enjoyed learning about 3D shape. We made our own 3D shapes using Plasticine and matchsticks. We identified the different shapes. We could recognise and start to count the different sides and corners- or vertices.

Nifty Numberlines!

In Class 3 we have made our own numberlines to 20, using pipecleaners and beads. We found these really helpful as we could use these to help us to subtract numbers up to 20. We managed to work out a secret code by using our super subtraction skills!  

Land Ahoy!

In Class 3 we have enjoyed making and designing a Pirate Island. We were able to map out the main geographical features of the island, such as; rivers, mountains, caves, valleys, a volcano and waterfall. We also added palm trees, bridges, paths, sharks, crocodile,...
