Miss Mills, Mr Lilley, Mrs Hitchman and Mrs Broomes welcome you to the Year 1 page! Here you will find useful information and links for homework, school projects, events and other exciting things that are happening in our year group this year.
PE lessons will take place on a Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Monday afternoon lessons will take place outside, so it is important that your child has jogging bottoms, trainers and a jacket in school as we are now in Autumn. Thursday afternoon lessons will be inside, so PE pumps, shorts and t-shirts are expected to be worn for these. May we remind you that earrings and jewellery must not be worn in school on the days when PE lessons take place. Please unsure that any earrings are taken out prior to your child coming into school on these days.
Reading books will be sent home weekly on a Friday. They need to be brought back into school by Thursday at the latest so that the children's RWI teacher has time to change them ready for the weekend.
More information can be found in our transition booklet below.
Spring Term Topic
Our topic for the Spring Term is called ‘Dinosaur Planet'.
We have already been on a dinosaur hunt around school looking for different dinosaur artefacts left by our friend Professor Bones. He has asked Year One to find out as much as they can about dinosaurs ready for the dinosaur exhibition at the end of term. We will learn about the wonderful fossil hunter Mary Anning and why she was important in the discovery of dinosaurs. The children will also try junk box modelling using cardboard to create their own dinosaur models themselves. Already the children have been bringing in their own dinosaur toys and books to show the class which is wonderful! Year 1, let's get our magnifying glasses and step into the world of dinosaurs!
Whilst on our dinosaur walk around school, we discovered some mysterious footprints! Whose foot prints do you think they are? A dinosaurs? What type of dinosaur could this be?
Check out some of our classroom topic tables! Children's work and artefacts from home about dinosaurs are displayed for everybody to look at. This is a great way for the children to learn more about the topics we are focusing on in school. Below are pictures of one of the dinosaur topic tables.
Maths in Year One
We have been exploring fact families in Maths this term. The children are developing their understanding about the different relationships numbers can have with each other, using the addition, subtraction and equals signs. Take a look at some of them below created by the children.
