December Update

What an exciting December Year 1 have been having! This month we have been reading our class text Hansel and Gretel using our Drama for Writing. The children have been listening to chunks of the text with music added for extra suspense! We have been using drama conventions such as communal character, guided tour, rolling theatre and placing the word. We then had a go at writing our own version of the story.

In Maths we have been looking at geometry. We explored 2D and 3D shapes, looking at their properties and using this to sort them and create patterns. 

As a celebration for the hard work the children have put in this half term we are having a campfire on the last week, with added marshmallows to make s'mores!
