Welcome to Year 1!

The start of a new school year is upon us and we would like to thank you for all your support at home to ensure your child had a smooth transition back to school! We have had a fantastic first few days back at school and hopefully your child has been able to tell you some of the things we have been doing!

Each day, we will conduct a short phonics session and a Number Time session.

We will alternate the teaching of English and Maths each morning.

Our playtime is 10:15am and our lunch is at 12:25pm. We have a playtime at 12:00pm, prior to eating lunch.

Our PE days are Monday and Friday so please send your child into school dressed in their PE clothes on these days. Children are allowed to wear sports trousers and can wear a sports sweatshirt or their school jumper.

Questions and Answers 

What have we been doing?

18.9.20

This week we have learned about our senses and have been on a listening walk to see what we could hear. We used our sight to describe how objects looked. We talked about the colour, shape and whether it looked prickly or furry etc. We tried touching objects and described how they felt. We came up with a great list of words!

We had to work collaboratively in a group to smell pots and we tried to guess what was inside. We had coffee, lemon, perfume, vinegar and mint. The children made some amazing guesses! We also tasted some crisps and had to guess the flavour!

This week we read a short piece of text about the Funnybones story in our Whole Class Reading session.

In Maths, we looked at saying 1 or 2 more than a number to 20. We then tried 1 or 2 less. This concept was a bit harder to work out in our heads!

In English, we wrote about our senses and described the things we like to taste, smell and hear.
