Year 1 Class 18/19


28th september 2018

This week in English year 1 continued looking at Pig the Pug after he turned up on Monday morning!! We created a story mountain to retell the story before we created our own naughty pet for our own story. In Maths we practiced finding 1 more and 1 less to a given number. We discussed the different language we can use when talking about more or less. In RE we heard the story of Adam and Eve. We thought about wrong choices that we may make ourselves, discussing how we show we're sorry if we do something we shouldn't.  In Topic we heard a story about different families, we then drew a picture of the members of our family and said why and how we love them.  In Science we learnt about the different stages of life as we grow old. We talked about what we can and cannot do at each stage and why.  On Friday we had a yummy time at the Macmillan bun sale, we enjoyed sitting with our year 5 reading buddies before meeting them back in the classroom for reading time.

This week in Year 1 we have had a fabulous week. In maths we practiced our counting both upwards and downwards. We also love challenging ourselves with our spicy challenges in our maths learning, getting to grips with reasoning and problem solving.  In English we created Wanted posters for Pig the pug. We definitely know he's in school as our caretaker Mr Voller emailed us CCTV pictures of Pig around school! We wrote questions that we could ask him if he turns up and designed traps for Miss Chappel to pt out during the night to catch him.  In Science we learned all about the senses, going on a senses hunt around the field - we found lots of things using our 5 different senses! In RE we heard the Story of Creation. We discussed what God created during the seven days, and created a piece of art work to show this.

This week year 1 have really got stuck in with their learning. In English we discovered some dog food which we found out had been left by Pig the Pug! We discussed the story and learnt how we can add adjectives to our work to give extra information. We prepared to make Wanted posters to find out where he is hiding. In Maths we sorted and counted objects in different ways, we learnt to work in pairs to discuss ideas. We recapped our numbers up to 10 thinking about what each number is worth.  In Science we discussed our bodies, talking about what is the same and what is different. We labelled the body parts and also looked at and labelled the different features of our face. In RE we talked about God's beautiful world. We prayed, thanking him for our favourite things in his world.

Our First Week

We are all excited to be in Year one with Miss Chappel, our new class teacher and Mrs Deyes who helps us every day with our work.

We learnt about our class Saint this week - St Patrick. Come see our display board outside our classroom and look at some of the interesting facts we found out about him, and see the beautiful shamrock collages we made. 

This week we also met our year five reading buddies, which we were all super excited about, year five too! Our buddies will listen to us read or read one of our favourite stories to us. We hope we can show year five what amazing readers year one are!
