Having dazzled the other children in Key Stage 1 with our monster based drama, we are continuing with our work in Year 1 based on Where the Wild Things Are. The children have been writing their own monster poems, trying to think of as many describing words as possible to bring our monsters to life. Our ICT time this week has been spent creating some digital monsters to accompany our poetry. Our D & T work has also had a monster element. We have all made some junk model monsters using everyday items that we can re-cycle.
Maths work in Year 1 has mainly been concerned with measurements. The children have been putting their knowledge to great practical use, cooking some delicious rice crispy cakes! Working in small groups, we made sure that we weighed the right amount for each ingredient.
