Our week in Year 1 

Year 1 have continued their Science learning about plants this week by learning about the sorts of plants we might find in a garden. We designed our own gardens full of beautiful plants and had a close look with the magnifying glasses at some of the flowers that had been brought in for our Corpus Christi celebration on Thursday. We found roses, chrysanthemums, sunflowers, carnations and freesias to name but a few! 
In P.E we have been busy practicing our throwing skills ready for Sport’s Day by playing games with the foam javelins. We have also been practicing some of the races we will be taking part in! 
We’ve been thinking about the differences between fiction and non-fiction books in
English this week and started our week reading ‘The Dancing Tiger’ by Malachy Doyle. We then read some non-fiction books about tigers and used them and the iPads to find out lots of facts about them. We began writing our own non-fiction books today with the facts that we had researched. 

Have a lovely weekend Year 1! See you next week.
