Spring term 1

Welcome back, we hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and are ready for lots of learning. This half term our topic is 'London'. We are going to be learning all about our capital city, including famous landmarks, its climate and somebody very famous (and very royal!) who lives there. We are also going to be learning all about The Great Fire of London.

The Year 1 Team

Year 1 has two teachers. Miss Walker will be here on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Scott will be here on a Thursday and Friday. The teaching assistants in Year 1 are Mrs Hand and Miss Nussey. If you have any questions please email and we will get back to you. Alternatively staff are always around at the beginning and end of each day should you wish to speak to us.

This week we have been learning...

In English this week we have been continuing to write our non-chronological report all about London. We have first looked at the features of a non-chronological report and then gathered all of the facts we have learnt to create our own excellent information reports about London- they really are amazing! 

In Maths we have been been looking at number lines to 20 including adding in missing numbers and estimating where we think numbers would go.

Our P.E continues to be Cricket in which we are very lucky to have 'Chance to Shine' with us to lead some fantastic sessions, the children are learning lots of new skills such as throwing and batting.

In Geography we are continuing to look at maps, so far we have looked at what a compass is and how to use one and this week we will be looking at daily weather patterns across the UK. 

Our R.E focus this half term is Islam and we are beginning to look at who the prophet Mohammad is and what happens in a Mosque.

                            Star of the week!

Congratulations to Levi for being our 'Star of the Week' this week. We chose Levi for not only making an excellent start to our new term in Year 1, but for his unrelenting attitude to work. Well done Levi!
