Year 1

We hope you have had a lovely May half term week and are ready for the final part of your Year 1 journey. Above is the key questions and topic web so you can see what we will be learning.

The Veggy Lion (Article 31 - leisure, play and culture)

The children have worked very hard to learn the poem 'The Veggy Lion' by Spike Milligan. We have followed the Primary Writing Project to help us learn actions to aid our recital. The children really enjoyed the poem and found it interesting to talk about. We hope you enjoy their performance!

Internet Safety! (Article 17)

 

This half term the children will be learning more about how to use the internet safely to access information and media. The aim of this unit is to help young children come to terms with how the web works and that we are all connected and contactable via access to the Internet. It will build on previous sessions and knowledge allowing the children to develop a better understanding of the Internet, by using a selection of different website. We will also be reminding the children of action that they can take to protect themselves if they ever feel unsure about what they have been looking at online.

Year 1 Multi-skills festival at the Louisa Centre 19.3.18 (Article 15)

Year 1 Multi-skills festival at the Louisa Centre (Article 15)

 

On the 19th March the children in Year 1 took part in a multi-skills festival at the Louisa Centre. This provided the children with an opportunity to be part of a larger group and take part in a range of exciting activities. 

Shall we go to Storyland? Spring 1 (Articles 12/13)

Shall we go to Storyland? Spring 1

 

This half term our topic is called "Shall we go to Storyland?" To kick off our new topic the children were given a chance to talk about their favourite stories (Article 13 freedom of expression). This could be a story that they chose from home or at school. The children were encouraged to give reasons for their choices and be ready to be able to listen to the ideas that the other children had come up with as each child has the right to express their ideas freely (Article 12 respect for the views of the child).

 

 

 

 

WOW - Who is Guy? (Article 14)

Autumn 2 is here already and the run in to Christmas can now begin. This half term we are asking the question "Is fire always bad?" Please see the topic web and key learning questions below.

 

To start our topic we have been looking at Guy Fawkes linking to the fires on Bonfire Night. We briefly introduced the children to who Guy is and why he is important (something we will go into more in depth during our history lessons) then gave the children the opportunity to create a Guy together. We collected natural materials from the outdoor area to use as a filling for the clothing. The children really enjoyed our introductory activity.

 

Over the half term we will also look at Article 14 of the RRSA which is freedom of thought, belief and religion. We will focus on the thoughts that Guy Fawkes had and that at this time his actions would be wrong as they would stop people from enjoying their own rights.

On the last day of term KS1 dressed up as our favourite Halloween characters and had our Spooky Disco. As you can see from the pictures above everyone had lots of fun dancing and singing along with each other. Enjoy the half term holiday everybody.

Autumn 1- What's Down The Well?

Welcome to Year One!

 

In September Year 1 will have two classes lead by Mr Coxon and Mr Simpson. If you wish to speak us we will be on the yard on Thursday and Friday mornings, or alternatively our email addresses are at the bottom of this page. You will also find relevant information for each class as the year progresses including our topic webs and how you can help at home. You will be able to find these above at the start of each half term.

 

We would like to remind you to put names in all of your children's clothes and they are allowed a water bottle in class, this should also have a name on. Below you will find PE and swimming timetables for each class and what your child needs for these sessions. It is important that they are prepared for these lessons as PE is statutory requirement for all children.

 

In Year 1 all children will be given homework books in which they can complete their homework as well as printed spellings each week. Homework will be marked every Wednesday and returned to the child Thursday with new tasks set that day to be handed in on the following Wednesday. Parents and carers are encouraged to discuss any errors with their child again any queries do not hesitate to contact us. As highlighted in the schools homework policy homework will last roughly 55 minutes per week, consisting of reading each night, phonics spelling and tricky word practice, times tables, a focused literacy (comprehension, grammar, punctuation and/or a longer piece of writing) and numeracy task.
