In maths this week we have been learning about to half shapes, groups of objects and today we were halving numbers. We investigated which numbers could be halved and realised that all even numbers can be shared equally. We used sharing circles and cubes to show what half of a number is. We said this is full sentence: half of 8 is equal to 4.
Well Done to all of Year 1 for their hard work this half term!
There are no spellings over half term but please make sure you are reading every day and writing a comment in your reading diary. You could also practise reading and writing your numbers up to 20.
Our recommended read for this half term is:
If you see this in your local library, have a look! We could not believe how much the caterpillar could eat!
We are looking forward to seeing all the books you have read over the holidays.

In science we are learning about the current season we are in, Winter. We went outside and explored the changes we have noticed since Autumn. We noticed that the trees are bare, when it snowed we felt it snow was cold and had turns into ice, the buds on the tree started to appear because it has been warm some days, there were twigs on the ground, and the clouds are grey.
On Thursday 7th February Bigfoot company came in to do an E-Safety assembly and workshop. We learnt that when we are online we should always ensure we are surfing ‘respectfully, responsibly and safely’.
Throughout the assembly we identified the best ways to be a SMARTY when online
We we also acted out being ‘aware’ and how to ‘tell’ an adult when we have felt uncomfortable online.
Hedgehogs- I challenge you to remind your adults how you can be SMARTY when online.
We are recapping consonant blends this week in phonics. This is when two consonants make one sound. The consonant blends in the spellings this week are br, pr, gl and cl.
Spellings this week are therefore:
brick, bright, brave, present, prize, gleam, glass, glue, claim, clay
Can you put them into sentences once you have learnt them?
In Maths, we have been learning about odd and even numbers. Can you spot a pattern with odd and even numbers? Can you do a number hunt around your house and decide whether your number is odd or even?
Have a lovely weekend.
