Welcome to our Year 1 blog.
Come here for weekly updates!
Week beginning 16th September
This week we have been busy revising '1 more' in our Maths and we have been building towers of blocks to represent different numbers. We have been working hard on our number formation. Our writing has been based around our own news and our book 'Here we are'. Our teachers are expecting a little bit more writing from us this year and there is so much to think about! Letter formation, full stops and capital letters to name just a few!
Gymnastics in PE is great fun and we are working on our throwing and catching skills in our games lessons.
We are working towards our self portraits in Art and have worked with pastels to create effects of texture.
Week beginning 9th September
The fun continues in Year 1 this week! We have been working hard recognising and writing our numbers to 20 and drawing objects to represent these numbers. We have been doing lots of writing linked to our topic book and have studied Vincent van Gough in Art, looking closely at his work, 'Starry Night'. We are choosing people from our classes to represent us on different committees around school and some of us have helped with House Captain elections.
Please make sure our Homework books and Spelling Books are sent in on a Monday. Our spelling tests are on Mondays and our homework is marked then too.
Week beginning 2nd September 2019
Wow! What a busy first week in Year 1. We have started with some Maths learning by working on ordering numbers and number formation and in English, we have done lots of writing and started to use our book for the theme, 'Here we are'. The pictures in the book are lovely and we have tried to use them for our topic book covers. The cutting out was very tricky but we gave it our best.
We are learning the routines of Year 1 and are trying our best to concentrate for longer on our learning.
It's really busy up here in Year 1....but lots of fun too!
Homework and Spellings come out on Thursday and need to be handed back in on Monday each week.
