Welcome to Year 1

Summer 2 week 6

Wow! What a busy week we have had. The children have enjoyed international day, been busy consolidating learning and have begun thinking about transition to year 2, with an exciting visit to their new classroom with Miss Clifton.

Summer 2 Week 3

We had a brilliant day at the British Wildlife Centre!! The children were so welcome behaved and experienced some lovely things, such as meeting a hedgehog, spotting a red squirrel and being amazed by an aggressive Scottish Wildcat!!

Summer 1 Week 4

A glorious week of sunshine has meant that we have been able to do lots of outdoor learning and extra play after working hard!

In English, we have written more poetry, with a focus on capital letters for names.

In maths, we have worked really hard on problem solving and reasoning around numbers to 100. The children need to be able to count confidently to 100, an easy thing to work on if you have ten minutes spare.

In science, the children investigated whether children with the biggest hands also has the biggest feet. They had great fun predicting, measuring and concluding as part of a team.

Summer 1 Week 3

Year 1 have had a brilliant week of learning!

We have learned about suffixes -s and -es, written rhyming poems and worked hard to punctuate sentences correctly.

In maths, the children have been adding bridging 10, using a range of resources.

In science, we had great fun learning about what we can do to improve the health of our planet, and the children were excited to create posters to encourage others to help.

Summer 1 Week 2

This week is our last week with Miss Wenham, as she has successfully finished her placement, and is ready for her career in teaching. The children have enjoyed being taught by her very much.

The Year 1 Phonics Check is fast approaching, in the second week of June, so please continue to encourage children to sound and blend when you read with them every day.

The children have had a lovely week making vegetable soup on our new oven trolleys. Many were apprehensive about trying new vegetables, but most enjoyed a bowl of soup with some bread and butter! They wrote an evaluation in their books, and once again, they impressed us with how independent they are in their writing now.

In maths, the children have enjoyed exploring 2d and 3d shapes, with a focus on being able to name them, and identify some of their properties.

In science, the children learned about the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees and they had a go at identifying trees around our school.
