Year 1

In Science we have been naming and describing a variety of animals. Year 1 decided how to group selections of animals and were able to describe their reasons for the groups they had chosen.We grouped animals according to their special features and then looked closely at one animal in particular to find out this animal was able to adapt to its environment.

We were focussed on trying to include some scientific vocabulary in our writing. Well done Farah and Abdullah!

Following our History topic on the first moon landing Year 1 looked at the artist Peter Thorpe and recreated a piece of art in his unique style. The children used different techniques to create an abstract background. 

 

Can you guess what materials we used to create our colourful rockets?

The year 1 team are very proud of all of year 1 for making fatastic progress in their handwriting over the spring term.  We are now starting to apply cursive handwriting in all of our work, across all sbjects. Fingers crossed we will be ready to start joining at the end of Summer 1! 

Year 1 have been working really hard in maths this half term! We have been learning how to fild half of an object, shape and amount. 

 

We had lots of fun cutting bread, jaffa cakes and oranges in half and enjoyed eating them even more! smileyno

Year 1 have been learning about measures and how to describe and compare length/height using words such as long/short/longer/shorter/tall/tallest/shortest etc. We all enoyed measuring objects around the classroom using non-standard units.

Wow! Half way through the year and we have already covered so much. In this last half term year one have worked hard in maths learning how to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and be able to set the time on a clock face. We half also learnt the names of the days of the week and the 12 months of the year. We enjoyed listening and learning some new songs to help us to remember these.

Welcome children and parents to the 2017/2018 Year 1 page.

 

In Year 1 this year we will be learning lots and having fun. During the Autumn Term we will be learning about ourselves in science, naming basic body parts and learning about our five senses. 

 

Our Power of Reading text for this half term will be The Jolly Postman and other people's letters. We will have lots of fun re-reading some of our favourite fairy tales and learning how to write letters of our own.

 

In maths we will be forming numbers 0 - 20 correctly using lots of exciting materials to support us in our learning, we will learn to identify and represent numbers using

objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and be able to use the

language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least.

 

 

This year we will be learning how to write in cursive handwriting, forming our letters correcting starting and finishing in the right place.

 

On Wednesday 13th September, a spacecraft crash-landed in our Year 1 classroom!

As you can see from the note that they left, they were keen to find out as much as they could about Human Beings! Year 1 are on a mission to help, learning all about ourselves, the parts that make up our bodies and our 5 senses.

We made a start by having a look at ourselves, using mirrors and we drew some fantastic self portraits.
