Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Year One.

We are all delighted with how well all the children have settled into Year One. We have been very busy working on lots of different topics and activities. As part of our Science topic we have been looking at how amazing our bodies are, we will be constructing life size skeletons and identifying the main bones of the body. During our Geography lessons we will be learning about the landscapes of Britain, which will include learning about features of different parts of the country. In Design Technology we created some amazing firework pictures and over the coming weeks we will be making wreaths using leaves and other natural materials.

In our English lessons, we have been working hard at using our 'Golden Rules' in all of our writing. The children know that all sentences need capital letters, full stops and finger spaces and they have learnt that they can make their work more interesting by adding adjectives.

The children are challenging themselves in Maths. We have been focussing on our core skills, such as, number bonds to 10 and 20, place value, ordinal numbers and we will be moving onto subtraction this half term.

We have enjoyed some yoga sessions, which are part of our whole school 'Wellbeing' strategy' which compliment our new Jigsaw PSHE shceme. 

This year we have introduced some fantastic new online resources and we have appreicated the very positive feedback we have received and we will continue to provide a variety of different ways for you to help and support your child at home.

Thank you for  your continued support.
