    Please make sure you are logging ALL your reading over the Easter Break (a gentle reminder if your reading has not been logged at least 3 times then books will not get changed). Please make sure the children are going on Numbots 3 times a week, homework club will commence after Easter, and the data from both of these allows us to understand who is not completing their homework.

    This week we have been working hard on our skills builder project. Mozart class had some fantastic creative ideas of Mario Kart Town, Lego Village, Atlantis and Beehive world, whilst Franklin decided to make a more sustainable city based around our SDG Goal. The children showed exceptional creativity skills, staying positive when things got hard, aiming high to create a fantastic villages, cities and towns. Overall, both classes excelled in teamwork and their communication skills.

    We have been working hard on our numbers up to 50. The children will be continuing this work after Easter half term and then moving onto multiplication and division (sharing).

    We have a challenge for your children over the Easter Break. We are finding that the children are struggling with their common exception words, therefore we are sending home your children with a pack of the common exception words and they will be tested on a random selection after Easter. It is important that the children can read and write these words.

    We wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all of our volunteers this term, for reading and coming in to help with any trips and walks – without your help the children would be unable to do this and we would like to pass on our appreciation.

    Have a wonderful Easter Break - the year 1 team!

    This week we have had a fantastic week. In English we have come to the end of our first part of Claude and the City. The children really enjoyed making wanted posters for the robber.

    In Maths this week we have covered capacity and volume. The children enjoyed watching to see which container could hold the most water.

    In French this week we met superhero Jaunie, she taught the children about what she wears and most importantly she is the colour Yellow.

    In RE we have been looking at the Easter story, the children have really engaged with their learning.

    In PSHE we have learnt about what to do in an emergency. We had a long discussion about who to call and what to say. The children also impressed us by saying they know they need to stay on the phone to make sure they are out of danger. We also had a long discussion about careers within the emergency services - it was lovely to see so many children who would love a career helping others. 

    Have a great weekend - the Year 1 Team.

    Please can we begin this week's blog by saying a huge thank you to all the children in year 1 for their dedication and effort in the play. The children did a fabulous job, and we are proud of every single one of them. We would also like to say a huge thank you to all the adults who have supported the children with their costumes, learning their lines and transporting children to the evening performance. We appreciate your support. 

    Spellings (these spellings revise the sounds the children have already learnt) - spied,   dream,  glue,   lawn,   dark.

     

    This week in maths we have been learning about Mass. The children talked about heavier and lighter and used scales to measure the mass of different objects.

    In English, we have continued with our power of reading book which children love. 

    In French, children have continued to look at superheroes. This week they have learnt about the colour blue.
