Year 1 Collective Worship – Month of Mary

Today in Year 1’s collective worship we celebrated May the month of Mary. We designed a focal point to be used as an altar to Mary for the month of May. The children planned their own parts and readings in this collective worship. We crowned Mary with flowers and laid flowers at her feet. We all held rosary beads and repeated the Hail Mary prayer. We then sang a song to celebrate Mary.

Year 1 – Maths counting in 10s

In Maths we have been learning to count in 10’s. There were lots of activities set up on the playground. We used paint to print a 10 numicon and we wrote the amounts going up, we got to 300! Another activity was to thread string through the holes on a paper plate in the order of the 10 times tables. We then played rally robin in partners. In this game the children took it in turns to say the 10 times tables, eg partner 1 says ten, partner 2 says twenty etc.

We had a great time!
