Welcome to Year 1, our adults in our classroom are.
Class Teacher – Mr Smith Teaching Assistant - Mrs Palfrey Teaching Assistant – Mr Thomas
Here you will see all our fun learning for this year! This term our topics are all about Wonderful Weston in Geography and old vs new toys in History.
We will need our Trainers/Daps on a Monday and Tuesday for P.E.
As Mr. Smith was out on Monday, Mrs Simpson came to help year 1 and created a story map to help the children learn the story of 'Lost and Found'. After creating actions to go with the story, the children tried to sequence the story themselves by cutting and sticking pictures into their books.
We also were lucky enough to have a special delivery from Weston Museum so we could investigate some old toys as part of our History topic.
In Maths, we were comparing numbers using the Mathematical terms: 'more than', 'less than', 'greater than', 'fewer than' and 'equals'.
The children had to find resources around the room and put them on the right table.
What a busy week! We began the week by wearing odd socks to to raise awareness for Anti-Bullying.
We were all very pleased when Polly returned to the year 1 classroom after the amazing search the children put together with their posters.
In Maths, the children have been working hard on their number bonds to 10 using ten frames, numicon and part-whole models to help them.
And finally, some of the children were lucky enough to go on a listening walk with Mrs Palfrey!
This week the children have continued learning the story 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers. They have been describing the characters using adjectives and role playing the story in our amazing role play area.
However, the children were shocked to find that our friend Polly the Penguin has gone missing! Year 1 were quick to begin writing posters in a desperate search to find Polly!
As well as all this, the children have been working hard in Maths, using mathematical language when working with part-whole models.
In Science, the children have been sorting animals into different groups, depending on size, species or colour.
We are very excited to have everyone back in year 1. This week we have begun to look at the story 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers.
The children have enjoyed role playing the story as well as building igloos and small world play.
We were very excited to have a special visitor in the classroom too. Polly the Penguin has come on a journey from the South Pole and is adapting to life in the year 1 classroom.
In Maths, we have been working on part whole models.
The children also had lots of fun reading and creating maps in Geography.
This is our final week on the story of Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy. The children know the story so well and are able to join in the story with Mr. Smith.
The children are continuing to work independently on tasks and are getting better at staying focused without adult reminders.
In Year 1 this week, we have continued to work around our story of Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy.
The children have attempted to make their own dog out of junk model materials!
We have also made a real effort to work independently.
- the children are collecting their own work packs and getting out the correct equipment.
- the children have tasks which they access independently.
- the children were challenged to form a circle on the playground.
This week has been very exciting in year 1.
We have opened a new Vet Surgery in the classroom and the children have loved taking care of the animals!
This week, we have also been discussing the importance of harvest.
We have been exploring the harvest themed tray and describing what we find.
Our story this week is Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy
