This week in Maths we have been learning how to divide. We used lots of different apparatus to help us with this. We looked at number families and the relationship they have with each other, this helps us when problem solving.
Year 1 have been reading the book “Lost and Found”. We have been getting into character using the ipads and then writing some fantastic speech bubbles. It has been lots of fun pretending to be the characters from the story.
In Mad Science you learn all about science like on our first week we learnt about toys and their kinetic energy. We played and learnt about toy cars, Jacobs’s ladder, a Slinkey, a Jack in a box and bouncy balls. It is really fun at Mad Science and you get a free toy every week like on the first week you got a yo-yo. We also learnt about force with the bouncy balls. Everybody is excited about it and we all will be sad when Mad Science club is over.
2018 is probably the most important year for us so far because we are all going to leave Thorp in July and go to our secondary schools. We are going to make the most of the year because some of us might not see each other once we are at secondary school and we are going to make it a year to remember. We have also got our SATs which we are already practising for. Even though this year is going to be hard, we are going to have some fun as well because on Monday 15th January, in the morning we are going to The Regional Science Centre to learn about evolution and inheritance and in the afternoon we are going for a walk around Royton to learn about its history. We are also going to be doing Freddie Fit and world book day. We are going to have a great year and we hope that you do too.

This half term we are focusing on the Ancient Greeks and we are reading the book ‘Who let the Gods Out?’ by Maz Evans. As part of our English work, we are going to be writing our own legend story, as we have been studying the Legend of the Trojan Horse.
I would love to hear who you believe is a legendary person. This person could be alive or be somebody that has passed away.
Who are you going to choose? Why?
