Talk homework

Talk about what we have been learning about in Maths this week. Addition is where two numbers are put together to find the total amount. Talk about the different ways and resources you can used to add two numbers together.

We have had a busy week in Year 1!

In English we have been exploring poems and looking in detail at the language used to create an image. We have written a shared poem about Mud, using the children’s ideas and vocabulary to paint a picture in the readers’ mind.

In Maths this week we have introduced addition. We have practised adding two numbers together by counting them all (using resources to support us), by adding the second number to the first number, and using a number line to find the first number and count on in ones to find the second number. Today we solved word problems and the children were super maths detectives in finding the information and solving the number problems.

On Thursday we went on a walk around the village to identify the different types of industry in Buckden. We walked via the shops, to the library and the pre-school, past the tennis courts and the bowling green, down to the Church and the Towers, passing the Lion and the George Hotel on our way. On the way back, we spotted the dentist and of course, the school as part of Buckden’s industry. We talked about the different services these building provide for the community and the children behaved wonderfully, they were a credit to the school.
