Beech – Year 1
Welcome to Beech - Year 1!
Topic Homework Summer 1
Welcome to Beech Class! We have had a busy half term studying the Fire of London for our History topic.
We have been imagining we are Samuel Pepys, writing a diary entry to show what happened during the Great Fire of London. This was a great opportunity to show off the facts we had learnt!
We have also been mastering using manipulatives in maths to help with our number work and calculating! We have been learning how different equipment and different strategies can help make addition and subtraction easier to do!
In RE, we have been looking at how different religions celebrate.
We have been looking at the way in which Muslims celebrate Eid and the reasons behind it. We compared this to what we know about Christian celebrations and made cards to give to others. In the week before half term, we got to experience some of the food that Muslims enjoy when they end their fast. We used our senses to describe what the food looked, smelled and tasted like! It was a lot of fun!
