Year One Blogs

January 2019 - We have had a fantastic few weeks back after Christmas! We have been busy thoroughly enjoying our new topic Blast Off! In English we have re-written our own version of 'The Way Back Home'. We have also been looking at how to write a set of instructions. We made spaceships and then used the steps to create a set of instructions together and recently we designed, made and evaluated yummy rocket biscuits and applied what we had learnt to write a set of instructions of how to make them. There are some pictures of our spaceships and biscuits below! In Maths we have been learning to count in 2's, 5's and 10's and we are now applying our knowledge to work out multiplication problems. We have enjoyed singing songs and learning rhymes to help us remember these! In science we have been learning about materials and we carried out an investigation to see which material would work best as a helmet for the bear in 'Whatever Next.' 

7th December - We have had an exciting week this week! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole school panto trip to see Dick Wittington on Wednesday and loved watching Foundation Stage in their Christmas performance! In English we re-wrote the story in our own words of One Snowy Night and continued our seasons prints in Art. We are looking forward to a busy week rehearsing and performing in the Christmas play! We look forward to seeing you on Thursday and Friday! 

30th November - In English this week we have been looking at a story by Nick Butterworth called 'One Snowy Night.' We have acted out parts of the story, learnt a text map, sequenced pictures from the story and written speech bubbles for some of the characters. Next week we will be writing the story in our own words. In Maths we have been looking at missing number problems. Although we found it a challenge at first, we have perservered and enjoyed solving missing number problems by the end of the week! In Art we have drawn a design onto polyblocks and we are now creating a seasonal print which will be attached to our calenders at the end of this term! We are really looking forward to the school trip to the pantomime next week! 

9th November  - This week we have been writing our seasons reports in English. We have been using the interesting topic words we collected last week to write some sentences about each season. In Maths we began to look at place value. We thought about 2 digit numbers as tens and ones. In Art we created effective leaf prints using the autumn leaves that we collected in the playground. In Computing we learnt about 'code' and how to give the Bee-bot simple instructions to move from one weather symbol on a mat to another.

2nd November - We have had a busy week back after half term! We started our new topic 'The Great Outdoors.' We have learnt about and discussed the four seasons and the changes that happen in each. We have learnt a seasons song to help us! In Maths we have been recognsing and describing the properties of 3D shapes. We have started to create leaf prints in Art and learnt about the weather symbols in Science, 

12th October - We have had a fantastic week this week! We had a very exciting and special visit from some owls on Tuesday. We listened carefully to the information about owls and even got a chance to hold one! There are some pictures below to check out! We will be using the facts we have learnt to create an information text in English next week.

In Maths we have been learning about the days of the week and month of the year. We have used songs to help us remember the order of each. It would be great to continue this maths learning at home whenever possible!

5th October - This week we have been looking at 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddel in English. We have read the story, acted out parts and created thought bubbles for the mummy and baby owls. We are very excited to see some real life owls next week! In Maths we began looking at addition and have used cubes, pictures and numberlines to help us find answers. On Monday we thoroughly enjoyed a skipping workshop. We practised different techniques and skills and even had a go at skipping backwards! Finally, this week in our multi-skills lesson with Matt we had to work as teams using various objects to re-create models of animals and we then had a go at creating our own! There are some pictures below of our creations - can you guess the animal?

28th September - This week we have been busy writing our recounts about the Animal Roadshow in English. In Maths we have started subtraction. We have used objects, pictures and numberlines to find an asnwer. We have practised counting backwards daily using a splat square (see link below). In PE the children have enjoyed listening to animal stories and moving like the different jungle animals! 

21st September - We have had an exciting week in Year 1! On Monday we had a fantastic visit from Quirk's Roadshow where we saw and felt a variety of interesting animals including a snake, lizard, tenrec, millipede, rabbit and tarantula! We have been thinking about all the information we gathered and using it to write a recount in English. We also had an informative and educational talk about road safety on Monday afternoon. At the end of the week we had a chance to go on the Life Bus and see Gerald the giraffe again - we learnt about the different food groups and how they help our bodies strong and healthy.

14th September - This week the children have read  'Rumble in the Jungle' and created paper plate jungle animals - which will be on display in the hall soon! In Maths we have been counting to 100 and ordering numbers as well as practising our number formation. In English we have enjoyed reading The Tiger Who Came To Tea and created a shopping list for Sophie and her mum. We are looking forward to a very exciting week next week!
