A warm welcome to our Year 1 page from Miss Woodliffe and Mrs Stockdale.  We will be adding useful and interesting information as the year progresses.

This Week's News

25th January 2020

In English this week the children have learned lots about Paddington Bear. This work will continue into next week, with a Geography theme. We will be learning a little about Peru, about the countries and capital cities of the UK and about London.

In Maths, the children will be continuing their work on addition and subtraction, looking at fact families and inequality symbols.

In Kaizen, the children will continue to paint Paddington's scarf using hot and cold colours and will begin to design their windmills.

Please can we remind you that all children should have a water bottle and their book bag in school every day. Their PE bag should also be in school and will be returned at the end of the half term. Once the weather becomes milder, PE will be held outside when possible. Please therefore also include outdoor PE kit in their bags: joggers/PE leggings, a sweatshirt or hoodie and trainers.

Many thanks,

Have a fantastic weekend!

The children have worked hard this week and have enjoyed being poets, writing some fantastically descriptive poems about weather. They have also been adding and subtracting to 20 using different pictorial models to help them.

Next week in English the children will be learning all about Paddington Bear. We will be writing a review of the story; answering questions about it; writing a character description and writing instructions to help Paddington. In Maths the children will be subtracting to 20 using tens frames and number lines.

In Kaizen we will begin to paint Paddington's scarf in hot and cold colours. 

Please remember to send a water bottle in to school with your child each day.

Have a lovely weekend!

The children have settled back into school very well this week and seem ready for the half-term ahead.

In English we have been focusing on sentence writing.  We have re-looked at using capital letters and full stops as well as using adjectives and adverbs to extend sentences  to make them more interesting to read. In Maths we have been looking at adding numbers up to 20 by 'counting on' and have used 10s frames and number lines to help us do this.

Next week in English we will be writing weather poetry, including acrostic poems and poems using the senses.  In Maths we will continue to look at addition and subtraction up to 20.

Please remember that PE kits must be in school by Monday.

Have a great weekend!
