KS1: Blencathra

TERM 6 – Team


Welcome to our Year 1 class page!


This project develops children’s team building skills and confidence, as they plan and perform a group routine to get the Olympic party started. We will be finding out about team routines performed at the Games by watching highlights of synchronised swimming, rhythmic gymnastics and dances performed at the opening and closing ceremonies. We will learn a simple synchronised routine, exploring different movements and balances. We will also take part in team building games. We are looking forward to designing team T-shirts and a mascot. Using what we have learned, we will work as a member of a team to plan, practise and polish a synchronised routine for an Olympic opening ceremony. We will then perform our routine and finish the project by reflecting upon our achievements and teamwork skills.

Opening ceremony performance

Following our approach to writing using ‘The Write Stuff’, we will be writing a narrative based on the story ‘Last Stop on Market Street’ by Matt de la Peña. This is a story about appreciating differences, happiness, and inequity.

In mathematics, we will be focusing on numbers to 100, time and money. Each week a quiz will be set on Diagnostic Questions to consolidate each week’s learning. We are trying really hard to rapidly recall our number bonds so please try to log to Numbots as much as possible! It really helps!

What have we been up to in Year 1?

This week we have been busy in our writing sessions, trying hard to include lots of interesting adjectives and adverbs. Next week, we will be commencing our independent writes based on the text ‘The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’, and we can’t wait to showcase what we have been learning! In mathematics, we have been working hard with our understanding of numbers to 100. We have focused on counting, finding one more and one less, and partitioning a number.

It has been wonderful to see the children’s topic consolidation pages this week, which highlights all that they have learnt this term. We have really enjoying designing zoo maps, learning about what animals eat and where they can be located in the world. Please keep an eye out for what we are up to next week, where we will be starting our new topic Team!
