Year 1 - 2017 - 2018
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 back! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break and have returned to school fully rested and ready for our busy term ahead. I can’t believe it’s the Summer term already! Time flies when you’re having fun...
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 ‘Water’ and we will be looking closely at the River Lea. Our following topic will be ‘Continents and Creatures’.
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.
Outdoor Maths (19.4.18)
Today we went outside and used items from the environment to help us with our maths! We developed our doubling skills and they were all very good!
Taster Tennis (17.4.18)
We we’re lucky enough to have a tennis coach in school today and we all took part in a mini tennis lesson. Everyone was very good- I’m sure some of the children had better hand-eye co-ordination than me!
Our trip to the Museum of Children
On Monday, 26th March 2018 we were lucky enough to take a trip to the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. While we were there we had a talk about and investigated some Moving toys, and we wandered around looking a all the different toys. The children were amazed at how much toys had changed, and we were able to think about the different materials the toys were made of.
Some children thought the toys were really old ("about 1000 years old?") and thought it was very funny when I then pointed out some of the toys I played with as a child!
We had a really fantastic day :)
Mrs Ellmore was so impressed with the Year 5's Robin Hood stories that she decided they should share them! We were very happy to hear them and share some reading time with our buddies.
On Friday 20th October in the afternoon, Reception class and Year 1 got together to play and share toys, equipment and ideas.
We had a great time together.
We hope you enjoy looking at the photos.
