This week Year 1 have been focusing on real and nonsense words - we love the Obb or Bob game!
If you want to play at home here is the link:
Thank you very much for this week's homework! The Monster puppets are displayed in the classroom :)
We have been working extra hard in year 1 this week. The children have started looking at capacity in maths – we filled the jugs using these key words full, empty, nearly full, nearly empty, empty.
In RE, the children have been looking at what Jesus did, what he said, what he taught us and what he taught us about God Our Father. The children worked in groups to answer these questions and we put them all on our RE board.
Year 1 say:
"Jesus taught us to be kind"
"Jesus teaches us"
"Jesus taught us to pray to God"
We also created our own landmarks using the wonderful junk modelling everyone donated… Thank you very much!
This week year 1 have been working extra hard! In English the children were reading free verse poems about the weather and answering questions about the poem. The children then created their own poem!
In RE, we did a little experiment with our prayers to God. We wrote our thank you prayer on a star and folded it up. We then put the folded stars in water for our prayers to be opened.
Year 1 have been really busy this week…
Year 1 really enjoyed watching year 5’s assembly. Year 1 said…
“I liked the songs”
“I enjoyed it all”
This week year 1 have also started their topic and looked at the royal family. The children really enjoyed this lesson, they said…
“It is really interesting”
“I like it because they have the same name as me!”
The children have also been really busy in Science – matching seasons and Maths – subtracting numbers.
Keep up the good work year 1!
Year one have settled back into school beautifully. We have been very busy this week, writing about our Christmas holidays and starting our new topic. The children have used the big map in KS1 area to find England, London and Bedworth. We are all excited to work really hard and learn lots this term!
The beginning of Year 1 2017
Year 1 have settled in very well to their new classroom and moving up to Key Stage 1!
In the first few weeks of term, we have been getting used to the Key Stage 1 environment, new routines, and we have been learning lots of new exciting things!
We have been learning how to keep safe on the internet and how we can keep safe in school.
We had a music retreat day with Dan Callow, where we learnt new songs and dance moves! We had a lovely class meditation, followed by a colour by numbers activity.
On one world day we learnt lots about Hinduism, learned new vocabulary and had an afternoon of a variety of art activities.
We have been reading in our new reading area, ordering and matching numbers, becoming more familiar with Nursery rhymes and stories in English and we have even started our new topic on our local area; Bedworth.
It has been a very busy and exciting few weeks in Year 1 and we have lots more to look forward to!
In year 1, we have been looking at plants. The children have been labelling flowering plants and trees. The children enjoyed going outside onto the playground to observe and investigate the trees. We also did some bark rubbing and sketched trees.
St Francis of Assisi Feast Day
The children have enjoyed learning about Saint Francis of Assisi. The children loved the school visitor from Zoolab and were able to see a variety of animals, even a tarantula! We had a big class discussion on how we can look after all the animals and Year 1 has worked really hard to make their own animals out of clay for our class zoo!
This week year 1 used the Bee-bots. We helped each other switch it on and programme the programme the Bee-bot to enable it to move. As a class we came up with instructions for us the follow and took it in turns to use these instructions to see where the Bee-bot would end up.
