Welcome to Year 1
This year, your teachers and TA's are:
1B - Mrs Brind, Mrs Watras and Mrs Perry
1D - Mrs Davies and Mrs Hubbard
1S - Mrs Obende, Mrs Sturgess (Monday & Tuesday) and Mrs Cantwell (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)
Year 1 is an important year. Your child will be following the new national curriculum. They will be following the whole school behaviour chart, where your child has an increased responsibility for their behaviour. At the end of each lesson your child will be expected to assess their learning using the self assessment charts. Your child will have a mixture of continuous provision (learning activities that the children choose which links to prior learning and our topic) and formal learning during the Autumn Term. From November 2018, all lessons will be taught as a whole class. There will be a continued focus on phonics as in June 2019, your child will take part in the Government Phonic Screening Test. Your child will flourish and become much more independent.
Week beginning 15th July 2019
This week we will be learning about:
Reminder - You are invited into class every Thursday between 8.40am and 8.55am to share a story with your child.
This week in Maths we have been learning about addition. We tried to use facts that we already know to help us. We remembered to put the biggest number first when we were adding up and found out that this made it easier to find the total.
In RE we have been learning to recognise our neighbours and how they need to be treated with respect. In Design and Technology and computing, we designed and made a jam sandwich and used the IPADS to record making them. We particularly enjoyed eating them and thought that they tasted delicious.
World Book Day 2019
The children in Year 1 enjoyed showing their costumes to their friends. To celebrate World Book Day, the children were able to choose a story to listen to and base some work on. Mrs Bring read 'The Cat in the Hat', Mrs Davies read 'Five Minutes Peace' and Mrs Obende read 'The Tiger that came to tea'.
"I enjoyed making my own rhyme similar to 'The Cat in the Hat'. I said 'The Frog on the log." by Ema.
"It was fun listening to the story of 'The Tiger that came to Tea'. I made a shopping list just encase a tiger comes to tea at my house." Isabella.
"I liked role playing the story. I made my own tea party." Madeline.
"I liked it when the elephant was trying to get some peace and quite in the story 'Five minutes peace'. It made me laugh."
We were very lucky to have some visitors in school from 'Open the Book'. They told us the story about loving our neighbour and reminded us that Jesus always wants us to show love to our neighbours by doing kind things.
Please enjoy these activities with your child:
