Hartsbourne Primary School

"Valuing Potential, Creating Opportunities"


We have had a lovey last week in year 1 before half term where we did lots of fun activities.

In English we created our own story as a class using a repeated phrase, children wrote up their own versions using some of their own ideas and some of them read their stories to the class.

In Maths we have been learning how to subtract numbers using resources such as counters and on a number line. The children showed brilliant maths reasoning skills when we worked on some tricky problems together.

In Science we had a fun afternoon of junk modelling where we created models of the human body in teams. Children used their teamwork skills to work well together and listen to each others ideas.

In art we painted our own impressionist paintings of the school field and nature trail, the children loved being artists and using special brush strokes to create the effects.

In computing we created digital images based on the song ‘Wellerman’, the children loved interpreting the story of the song and creating images about it.
