Busy December


During this half term, the children in year 1 have been learning all about place value of numbers to 20. They have been finding out about how these numbers are made up of tens and units and have used practical resources such as dienes to represent given numbers. The children have also been learning how to use practical resources and part whole diagrams to find the number bonds for 5/10/20.


The children have explored atlases, maps, and Google Earth to locate the UK on the world map. They then used this knowledge to look more closely at the country where they live, the United Kingdom. Together the children found out that the UK is made from four different countries England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales and discovered that Telford is in England. The children researched the similarities and differences between the weather in England and Scotland before comparing our weather with that in Ghana and Iceland.
