News from Year 1 – a week of mass!

This week we focused on mass, in more ways than one. On Wednesday, we attended a mass for the Feast of St Peter and St Paul. It was a great experience to be back at St Barts and walking there and back with the Year 6s.

We also started our new topic in Maths, mass! We really enjoyed comparing the weight of everyday classroom objects, using words such as ‘heavier’ and ‘lighter’ to describe their mass. We look forward to continuing our mass learning next week.

We finished the week by starting our new book in English, Julian is a Mermaid by Jessica Love. It is a heart warming story of a boy who dreams of being a mermaid. We started our first lesson with a ‘wow moment’, an old letter encased in a treasure chest, adorned with jewels. We are looking to learning more about Julian and his dream next week too.

Have a restful weekend,

Miss Battams 🙂
