Year 1 – Rabbit

  • Science

    This week in science we identified and labelled parts of the body. We also learnt the 5 senses and discussed what each one does.  

  • Using tens frames

    This week in maths we have been learning how to regroup using a place value chart. The children thought of a number between 11 and 19 and made it using ones on the tens frame. They then regrouped the ones for a ten using language such as in 15 there is 1 ten and 5 ones. 

  • Christingles

    This week in RE, we made Christingles. We learnt what they are used for and what each part represents. 

  • Pan balances

    This week in Rabbit class, we have been learning about making equal values using symbols to record. We used pan balances to make the same value each side and learnt the word ‘balance’.
    e.g Jawaria and Raaed were making 10. One side they had 5 + 5 and the other side they had 7 + 3. They recorded this in a number sentence. 
  • Writing reports

    This week in Rabbit class, we have been writing a report on the physical and human features in Watford. 

  • Piet Mondrian Composition

    In computing this week, we used the laptops to create a digital painting. We looked at Piet Mondrian Composition. We used different tools on the paint app such as how to draw a straight line, fill and undo. 

  • Writing a letter

    In English, we wrote a letter pretending to be Mr Big. We used ‘and’ to join words and clauses in our sentences. 

  • Drawing spirals

    In art, we drew spirals using our wrists, elbow, shoulders and hips.  =We learnt that drawing is a physical and emotional activity. That when we draw, we can move our whole body.

  • Design & Technology

    This week in Design and Technology, we made our playground equipment that we designed. Max made a zipline and Penelope made a swing.  


  • Science experiment

    This week in Rabbit class, we did an exciting science experiment. We used torches to test different objects to see if they were transparent, translucent or opaque. We recorded our findings in a table.
