Good morning Year 1, we hope that you're all well and looking forward to our Easter break from remote school.

Today for your English we would like you to practice using words which begin with 'un' and look at how adding 'un' to a word changes what it means. Watch out later on and you will find out which book has won the vote. We will post the video this afternoon. 

Today for Maths we would like you to use the fractions skills you have been learning this week to do a fractions quiz.   Find the task sheet, quiz and answers below.

Hanukkah Smart Learning Morning

On Friday 6th December Mrs Bachar-Smith joined us for the morning and taught us all about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah and how her family celebrate it. We listened to the story of the Maccabees and learnt how their small army defeated the large Greek army and the miracle of the Hanukkiah (menora) which burnt for 8 days with only one pot of oil. Mrs Bachar-Smith said a Hebrew blessing and lit the candles in her Hanukkiah, showing how the father candle lights the other eight candles. We made candle headbands and had a go at playing dreidel games. We even had a go at writing Happy Hanukkah in Hebrew and learned that Hebrew is written from right to left. We thought about how the light in the darkness represents the good defeating evil, just like some of the other festivals we have learned about such as Diwali. Thank you Mrs Bachar-Smith for sharing your faith and traditions with us.
