Week commencing 1st October

This week in Year 1 we have been looking at the story ‘The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers and have started to create our own text map of the story. In maths we have been working with objects and pictures to find ‘one more than’ and ‘one less than’. Well done to Finlay this week for bringing in an amazing Lego Chinese Dragon

Week commencing 24th September

Well done to all the children who have completed Challenge X homework. We have loved looking through them and have been amazed at how hard everyone is working at home. We can’t wait to see what is brought in next. Keep up the good work year 1.

Week Commencing 17th September

Year 1 have had an unexpected visitor this week. When we came into the class on Wednesday morning we found the class in a mess. The only clues we had were a set of footprints and a mysterious bottle. We thought it might be a giant so make sure you keep your eyes peeled.  

Week Commencing 10th September

All of year 1 have worked really hard this week. We have watched the start of the BFG and have talked about how we could describe the setting. We have thought of some really good adjectives. In Challenge X we have decided to help endangered animals that live in China. We are going to use different media to spread awareness and stop these animals becoming extinct 

Week Commencing 2nd September 

What a great first week! This week we have had lots of fun getting to know each other and learning all about year 1. Our Topic is China and we have been looking at all the different animals that live there. We have even named our class groups after four of the amazing animals we looked at. During maths lessons we have been explore numbers and practising our counting skills.
