Numbers, labels and body parts!

14 Sep 2017

A busy week in the life of year 1!

In maths we have been focusing on number formation and thinking about what different strategies we can use to help us count. We've used counting objects such as cubes as well as our fingers and trying to count on one more in our head. In literacy we have focused on labelling. We have labelled members of our family and a family tree. We challenged ourselves by writing some sentences all about our family. In PSHE we have been exploring our emotions and what makes us sad, happy, angry, worried and embarrassed. In RE we have been discussing the natural world and how different religions look after it. In science tomorrow we will be looking at different parts of the body and labelling it. In computing we continue to practice using the keyboard and mouse and had a go at creating a lovely picture on the laptops. In music the children have been looking at rhythm and how to keep a beat. In art we have been making collages using the recycling symbol.


Trip letters were due in yesterday so unfortunately any letter that comes in from today onwards won't be able to order a school pack lunch.


The show and tell theme is still our body and next week it is for squirrels.

Welcome to Year 1!

Hello and welcome!


We have had a fantastic week! Everyone has settled in really nicely! In literacy we have completed some lovely pieces of writing all about ourselves! In PSHE we have talked about how we can be a good friend, not just in the classroom but also in the playground. In computing we practiced using our new logins and getting to know the laptops. In maths we practiced our adding skills using objects and simple number sentences.

This week we have had our first yoga and music lesson!
