We are enjoying a busy half term in Year 1. We have been learning all about India. Our story ‘The Bird in the Forest’ is set in the Indian Jungle. The children have also read two other stories set in different parts of India. One of them was centered around an Indian market so we visited Norwich market to compare and contrast. The children enjoyed buying different fruits and vegetables from the market and we ate them the next day back at school. Delicious!
In maths the children have been learning about measure and enjoyed doing some work on capacity with different containers and water. They have also been working hard practising their time telling skills on both analogue and digital clocks.
Next week they will be visiting Mousehold Woods to learn about the history and they will also compare them to the Indian jungle as well as linking it to our Science topic of habitats.
