It is incredible to think we have reached the end of year 1. It has been a truly fantastic year and a brilliant final week.
We all very much enjoyed preparing for the ball by writing our invitations (we hope you received yours!), making our own crowns and practising our dances but nothing could have been as fun as the ball itself! We had the best time. Thank you to all parents for helping to make it such a special occasion! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
The rest of the week was spent weighing and measuring in Maths, writing letters to our new teachers in Literacy and having a Year 1 battle on the field with our homemade swords and shields.
We would like to say a huge thank you for all your support over the year. We have appreciated everything you have done to help us and your children.
We wish you a happy and safe holiday.
The Year 1 Team.
Year 1 had a fantastic start to the week when we all took part in the Fairy Tale themed swim carnival. Much fun was had by everyone involved and the children particularly enjoyed seeing the teachers in their inflatable tyre race!
We have also been practising hard for our dances that we will be showcasing at the Year One Ball next Tuesday afternoon at 1.00pm. Please come and join us and help us to celebrate all of our hard work this year.
You may also be dazzled at the ball by the beautiful hand- woven crowns we have created in Design and Technology, using card, ribbons and gems.
In Literacy, we have been being innovative and creating a new version of Jack and the Beanstalk, changing key characters and objects.
In Maths, we have been learning how to compare the length and height of objects and measure them to the nearest centimetre using rulers and metre sticks.
As you can see it has been a busy week once again and we wish you a restful weekend as we prepare for our final week in Year One.
We have had a very exciting week, this week in Year 1. We have all been very busy doing lots of great learning.
We have continue to look after our plants, in Science and have been discussing what helps plants grow and why.
In Topic, we all went on a ‘once upon a time’ themed scavenger hunt. We used iPads to hunt for clues hidden in the QR codes. We all had so much fun working as a team to find the answers to the fairy tale questions.
In Maths, we have been adding and subtracting. We have used our knowledge of number facts to help us identify other related number facts. Towards the end of the week we did some tricky problem solving too.
In Literacy, we have written our own retells of Jack and the Beanstalk. We made sure we sequenced the events in the correct order and used the correct vocabulary too.
A polite reminder that, Swim Carnival will take place at 10am on Monday 18th June and non-uniform day is on Tuesday 19th June.
We look forward to seeing you all on Monday!
Thank you and have a great weekend.
We’ve had another busy and exciting week in Year 1! We have started our topic ‘Once upon a time’ and have been enjoying reading lots of different fairy tales. We are focusing on the story Jack and the Beanstalk this half term.
In Literacy, we have been retelling the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and creating text maps to help us remember the order of events in the story. In Maths, we are still learning about time. We have been making predictions and timing each other doing different activities. It’s been a lot of fun!
In Science, we have been planting seeds and talking about what they need to grow. We are going to observe our plants over the coming weeks and measure them as they grow taller. We have also been observing the weather and recording what we notice.
We are still practising our dancing for the Year 1 ball which is only a few weeks away! We are looking forward to showing you our brilliant dances.
We hope you have a restful weekend.
The Year 1 team
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely break and are full of energy, ready for our LAST HALF TERM!
On Wednesday, we shared all of the stories from our holidays with our friends, and even wrote about these fun activities in Literacy. We also used clocks in Maths to tell the time and talk about various activities we do at these times.
On Thursday we started learning the dances that we will be performing at our Year 1 Ball (have we mentioned we are having a Ball? It will be on 26th June and we cannot wait)!
On Friday we had a Rotation Day to begin our new topic Once Upon a Time. This term we will be thinking all things fairy tales, which we are very excited about!
Until next time – have a wonderful weekend,
The Year 1 Team
What a wonderful week in Year 1! All classes have now visited the Science Museum. We all had lots of fun watching the Science Show, visiting the Planetarium and exploring the museum. We are sure the children were full of stories and information when they returned!
At school, we completed our dioramas and began to use them to make short animations of our own Beegu story. It was lots of fun and we really enjoyed doing the voice over for the different characters!
In Maths we have been consolidating our understanding of number bonds to 10 and 20. Some of us still find this tricky so it would be great if you could help us with this at home.
We hope you have a lovely break and we will see you all on Wednesday!
P.S Please can the children wear their house shirt on Friday 1st June? Many thanks!
This half term in Literacy, we have been writing play scripts based on the book ‘Beegu’. We got very creative and made dioramas and characters, too. Then we worked together in groups to film our own animations. We are very proud of the results!
We really enjoyed this project and hope you enjoy watching some of our videos!
