Year 1 - 2018 - 2019
Here you will find lots of information on what Year 1 have been up to and what we are looking forward to!
Welcome to Year 1
Welcome to Year 1! I hope you all had a wonderful summer and have returned to school fully rested and ready for our busy term ahead. We have all settled in to Year 1 very well, and I am really looking forward to this year!
So far I have been really impressed by the work produced by you all, and I can’t wait to see what else we can do over the next few weeks!
Our topic this half term is ‘Weather’ and we will be looking at and comparing different weather that we see in the different seasons. Our following topic will be ‘Remember, remember 5th November’.
I am hoping that we will be able to spend lots more time learning outdoors this term, so please could you ensure that your child has appropriate clothing for the weather (I.e. if it’s raining, they will need a waterproof coat, and if it is sunny, please send them in with a hat to wear outside). Also, lots of our PE lessons will be outside this term, so please ensure your child has trainers in school.
Thank you all for your continued support at home.
More RE learning!
Our new topic in RE is 'Mary, our Mother'. We have started off our learning by listening and responding to the story of the Annunciation. We orally retold the story, considered why Mary might have been chosen by God, and thought about how Mary might have been feeling and why.
The children all produced some wonderful art work, prayers or drama about the story.
We are learning about the Creation. Today we learnt the story and the order of events, and we made our own 'world' in our classroom. The children then all made their own piece of artwork of something in God's World that they love, and we said thank you to God.
Some of our Maths learning
We have been looking closely at the numbers to 20; counting forwards and backwards, finding numbers in between, and matching numbers of objects to the written number. We have been looking at recognising the numbers to 20, and we even tried making some of them with our bodies!
Some of our English learning
We have been looking at some weather poems and Nursery rhymes in English. We talked about what would make a good performance, and then some of the children were brave enough to perform their poem in front of the class!
