In Maths we will be practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, we will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We will be doing lots of work on position and direction focussing on left and right, half turn and quarter turn and clockwise and anti clockwise. In topic we will be learning about where Africa is and comparing Africa to England. We will be learning about the different animals that live in Africa. 

 

We look forward to sharing lots of our exciting learning with you.

We have had a great week multiplying and dividing in our maths lessons. In music we have explored long and short sounds and made up our own musical patterns. We have looked at the classification of different animals and sorted them.

In DT this half term, we have tried lots of different fruit, we then planned what fruits we wanted to put on our fruit kebabs. We made our kebabs this week and best of all we got to eat them. Yummy!

Friday 12th June

In Year 1 we have had great fun in our math lessons learning left and right and quarter and half turns. We set up obstacle courses for each other and the Beebots. We have also written our own versions of 'Where the Wild Things are'. The fantastic homework helped with this and gave us all lots of ideas.

For homework this week the children were asked to design their own wild thing. Look at their fantastic masks!

We hope you had a lovely half term enjoying the Easter sun. It has been a very busy first week back for the children. This week we have been playing golf with a coach, planting beans in the garden and celebrating St George's day. 

St George's day

To celebrate St. George's day we listened to the story, designed our own crests, iced the St. George's flag onto a biscuit, listened to the national anthem and came to school in our cubs or rainbows outfit. It was good fun!

We have all been using our imaginations this week to write our own fairy tales. There has been some interesting stories and these will be up in our corridor to share with the whole school. Thank you for the fantastic work making posters for Internet safety day, these are very informative and creative.

Friday 6th February

This week we have changed Cinderella in to a modern fairy tale with some very interesting outcomes. The children decided Cinderella would go to the cinema or ice skating, take a limousine or maybe just phone a taxi and to end they would go out for dinner! This week we have also been designing and making our healthy snack boxes to use for healthy snacks that we bring to school. 

Friday 30th January

We have begun our new topic on 'Castles' this week which has really ignited the children's imagination. They have been looking at the monarchy, the features of castles and building and labelling their own castles. Connected to this in English​ we have begun learning the story of Cinderella and describing the characters. We will be looking at and reading many other traditional tales with the children to support them in writing their own story at the end of the half term.

We have been acting out the story of Cinderella.

Thank you for all the materials you have kindly sent in this week for the children to make their arks.

Friday 9th January

We have all settled back after the holidays and looking forward to a new and exciting term. This week linked to the story of 'Noah's Ark' we have been counting forwards and backwards in 2's and 10's. We have had lots of fun trying to rhyme different words from our story 'Monkey Puzzle'. As part of topic we have investigated different materials and their properties. 

We sorted the objects according to their properties.

Well done to Ava and Ali for their winning jigsaw piece. It represents friendship in Year 1. 
Year 1 have had a great week learning all about WW1 and what the poppy stands for. We were also very impressed with the children during the two minute silence on Tuesday. 
The children undertake a Phonics Screening assessment later in the year. Please support your child by listening to them read each night. Click on the link below to see a sample of the test the children complete.
