Year 1 Newsletter

We have introduced doubling and halving this week in maths. We have all enjoyed learning and singing the doubling rap. They may enjoy singing it with you at home! (

We have been learning how to identify doubles and write doubles as a number sentence.
 "Double 3 is 6. 3 + 3 = 6".

In Science our new topic is Everyday Materials. Last week we helped our Alien puppet decide which would be the best material for a toy duck out of: wood, metal and plastic. We gave reasons for our choices such as "I would choose a wooden duck because it will float", "I would choose a plastic duck so it can get wet in the bath and not be too heavy".  This week we identified and sorted a variety of materials including glass, brick, rock and water. We used the magnifying glasses to look closely and describe the properties of these materials.
