Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 class page.

Well that was a busy Autumn term and we have learned so much!! Ask us about Josiah Wedgewood, levers and sliders and about how to make and draw a collaged self potraits!

These are just a few of the things we have learned over this Autumn term. 

We finished term with a lovely Christmas themed week we have learned about the Christmas story, we have made Christmas cards and even learned some festive sign language.

Take a look at our creative Christmas cards - we had so much fun making them :)

Have a wonderful Christmas!!

Autumn 1

This term we have been working really hard and we are learning so many new things! Miss Paling and Miss Norton are so proud of the children and all the work they have been doing. 

In English we are learning to write sentences using capital letters and full stops. We are trying hard to remember our finger spaces so we can read our sentences back. The most recent story we have written about is 'The Gingerbread Man'. We have loved learning about this story and have written the beginning, middle and end of the story! Check out some of our fabulous writing!!

 

In Maths we have been learning about Place Value and Addition and Subtraction. We have been trying lots of different ways of working out the answer. 

We have also been learning about 2D and 3D shapes, and have just started to learn about Measurements. 

In Geography we have been learning about where we live. We really enjoyed exploring Google Maps for the first time!!

 

Class information:

P.E.  will be every Monday.  Please ensure the correct P.E. kit is in school. Children should wear black/blue plain shorts, with a plain, team coloured top and a pair of trainers or pumps.  All jewellery must be removed before coming to school, children are not permitted to participate whilst wearing earrings.

 

Water bottles.  We encourage all children to drink water throughout the day. Please supply a water bottle which can be kept in the classroom for easy access and returned home at the end of each day.  Children are able to refill their bottles in school with fresh, cool water.

 

Class Dojo. To help develop our learning skills we use a program in class called, Class Dojo.  Each child has their own Dojo (which they can alter) and points are awarded throughout the day with a weekly winner.  You can even check your child’s progress online throughout the day or by downloading a free app. A code will be sent home over the next couple of weeks so that you can sign in to see your child’s points.

 

Maths Whizz.  - www.mathswhizz.co.uk

Follow the link to help develop your child's confidence and skills in mathematics.  Plus it's lots of fun too!

 

Reading books should be brought to school each day as your child will have the opportunity to read to others and swap read books for new ones. 

 

Homework – Please support us with this as it helps the children to practise their learning from the week. Homework is due in on a Wednesday. If your child needs support please let me know.
