Year 1 love phonics! We have been playing lots of fun phonics games to help us learn! ⭐️
Year 1 have been using directional language this week to find their way from one London Landmark to another.
They have been using their maps skills and language skills to help plan their topic writing.
They had lots of fun on the yard, imagining they were in London giving each other instructions and describing the landmarks as they passed.
Year 1 read the story ‘The Birthday Bike Surprise’ as part of their new PE unit. During the warm up they explored how many different ways they could move whilst ‘riding their bike’.
Their skill this week was coordination and footwork, where they worked on side-stepping in both directions, side steps with pivots, hopscotch and moving in zig zag patterns.
They showed great fluency and control.
Well done everyone!
Year 1 have been reading Katie in London as part of their Bright Lights, Big City topic.
Next week they will be writing their own adventure story about a trip to London. In preparation, they have spent time discussing the features of a story and finding out about popular London Landmarks.
Our lovely Jack in Y1 decided to use his own time to make sure our local environment was clean and tidy by litter-picking close to our school.
Thanks Jack for looking after our environment!
Year one have been busy this week!
As part of our science topic ‘Seasonal Changes’ and our Art topic ‘Rays and Sunrays’ we have created some brilliant seasonal paintings, rain gauges, wind socks and even had a go at being weather reporters!
We have received the following email from the ‘Love, Amelia’ charity that we would love to share with you about Alice in Y1!
Alice has been visiting the ‘Love, Amelia’ charity with her Mam, Jen, and demonstrated such kindness and compassion to other children who are without the luxuries she is fortunate enough to have. Alice has helped to sort through toys and clothes with her Mam and has even drawn some beautiful pictures and cards to give to the boys and girls we help to make them smile. Alice has also previously sorted through her own clothes, shoes and toys and donated them for other children to use. Alice is such a star and has made us all smile when she has been with us and we wanted to share this with her school, to which she is a credit.
Y1 enjoyed learning about Christmas traditions in Germany including Christingle.
Year 1 have been working hard in maths this week using the resources to help us ‘find the difference’ between numbers.
Year 1 went to Beamish as part of their topic, Childhood. They visited the pit village where they spent some time in the classroom finding out about childhood in the 1950s. Later they played with some toys from the 1950s and had fun exploring the old town. At the end of the day they took a ride on a tram and of course paid a visit to the gift shop!
