Welcome to Year 1!
I am extremely proud of my Year 1 class. They have settled into our routines and are working very hard in everything they do.
Year 1 have been FANTASTIC this week, learning about greater and less than!
Year 1 had a fantastic time going through the Christmas journey. We learnt about the Christmas story of Jesus, met some important characters and created some crafts. Have a look at the Christmas Journey!
Year 1 LOVE reading books in our new, cool reading area and other settings in school. As a class we love bringing in our own books from home and enjoy reading them together as a class.
Year 1 have been learning about Changes.
We have explored the different seasons and used different art materials to create a display to show our learning. We also enjoyed going on a autumn walk and walking through the fallen leaves.
Year 1 are learning about the changes between Victorian and modern day schools. The children are enjoying exploring pictures, photographs and artefacts and enjoying learning about the rules and routines that were used in school (the cane was a favourite). We love our new Victorian role play area and some of the children even dressed up as Victorian teachers and school children. We enjoyed the Victorian workshop who taught us about what it would have been like living as a child in the Victorian times.
Year 1 have been learning about familiar stories and focused on Little Red Riding Hood. We had lots of fun using drama to act out the story. Enjoy!
Year 1 have been working hard, learning number facts to 20.
Year 1 exploring 2D shapes and creating a 2D shape picture. We enjoyed our shape hunt around school and found lots of different 2D shapes.
Year 1 have been learning about Nelson Mandela. We first created a mind map of questions we wanted to find out. We created a profile, using facts we have learnt about Nelson Mandela and drew a portrait of him. We had lots of fun singing 'Free Nelson Mandela'.
