Year 1

Hello, welcome to the Year 1 class page. We hope that your children have been enjoying their learning so far this term. This term we have been learning 'All about me'. This topic has covered many areas and has been a great transtion topic from Reception to Year 1. 

In maths this term we have been using practical and pictorial resources to help us to add and subtract. 

In topic we have been talking about how are families are different. We have also been reseraching our family tree and making a gingerbread family which the children throughly enjoyed decorating. 

In Art we have been designing and map making. We have used a variety of mixed media and the children enjoyed learning about the place that they live. 

This week we have been learning about the features of our emotions. We have based our learning around the Disney film, Inside Out to enable the children to access the learning in a fun way. The children in both classes have been writing descriptions  of the characters. Later this week we will be discussing how our emotions can effect our learning.

We have also had the best time this week celebrating Fiji Day. As a year group we collected leaves and wrote a special message on them, to share kindness around the school. The children enjoyed thinking of special messages to share with their peers and some children took their leaves home to give to someone special.


We hope you all enjoy the rest of this term, please continue to keep learning and try your best everyday. 

Many thanks 

The Year 1 team. 

Our new topic is Julia Donaldson. This term we will be exploring a variety of Julia Donaldson's books, rewriting them in our own words and using them to inspire our topic lessons.

The first book we have been looking at is the Gruffalo, where we learnt how to use proper nouns, question marks and exclaimation marks. Together we created a story map and learnt actions for the story.

We are very proud of the fantatic Gruffalo stories the children have produced and can't wait to read their Singing Mermaid stories over the next couple of weeks.
