Year 1

Welcome to the Year One Web Pages.

Please have a look at all the super things we are doing! We hope to keep you informed on what we are learning about and the new skills we are achieving.

Autumn 2 Term

This half term we are learning about the polar regions. We will be reading lots of fiction and non fiction books based around these areas and the animals that live there. We have a igloo role play area and a lovely new small world set.

Writing Like a Victorian

We all tried to write the 'Victorian Way' using slates boards and dip pens and ink. This was much harder that we thought it was going to be.

Yet another busy week in year 1

Once again the children have been working really hard and learning lots of new things. In History they have been looking at the differences between schools in Victorian times and present day schools. They were all able to cut out pictures of school items and decide whether they were from the past, present day or would be used in both eras.

Design and Technology

As part of our topic 'School Days' we have designed and are making a model of a classroom or school. We are developing and improving  our  cutting and joining skills to help us make the models. Here are some examples so far.

In R.E we have been learning about St Francis of Assisi. We know that he loved and cared for the animals and especially the birds. We made some bird food so that we too, can care for the birds in the Winter.

Year One Rainbow Chairs

 

We have two special Rainbow chairs in year one. Each day we choose two children that have worked really well, to sit on the chairs for the day. So far lots of different children have had a turn.

 

 

Collective Worship

This week our Collective Worship time was based around saying 'Thank You' to God  for all the things we are grateful for. We spent quiet time listening to relaxing music and reflecting on all the good things in our life. We each had a paper star and  folded the points of our stars in to the centre. In turn we placed the  stars on the water and told the class what it was that we wanted to say 'Thank You' for. We saw the stars open up, as if by magic.

In R.E we have looked at the story of the Creation. The children have sequenced pictures from the story by day both as a group and independently in their books. They have all worked with Mrs Dooley to create a wonderful wall display. Pictures to follow when its completed.
