Year 1 had a visit from Mrs Jordan, who taught them all about algorithms.
Here is the video she shared from Youtube, which tells you all about what an algorithm is:
The Year 1 children had to pretend to be robots and follow some algorithms for how to do a dance. Some children even wrote their own algorithms!
Year 1 are really...
It was Monkey's birthday on Monday and to celebrate he had a party and shared food with his friends.
At the party there were 4 animals altogether so Monkey had to split the food into quarters.
Year 1 had to make sure they shared the pizza, chocolate and biscuit into 4 equal parts to get quarters.
This week year 1 children planted sunflower seeds. They whispered to their seed before planting it telling them how much they love them, how they will water them each day and how they promise to look after them to help them grow. The children also explored and made mud pies!!
Year 1 took tape measures out into the forest last week to see if they could guess the age of our trees. They measured the circumference of the tree in inches which gave us an estimation of it's age. Our children found trees that were roughly 40, 48 and 59 years old!!
During their RE lesson the children had to think of things that made them happy. They then drew them on big sheets in their new Pirate Pal groups.
None of the children drew things that cost lots of money or involving sitting at a computer screen! They felt happiness was spending time with their family and friends and feeling loved.
Year one have been learning about halving this week. They have been halving objects, shapes and quantities.
On Monday they helped Monkey share his picnic with Gorilla. They had to halve the food carefully to ensure Monkey and Gorilla got the same amount.
