Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 

Welcome to the Year One page. Our team is Miss Armstrong, Miss Lyne, Miss Lloyd and Miss Owen. If your child is in Year One, please familiarise yourself with this page so you can stay up to date with all the amazing learning taking place in Class 3 and Class 4.

 

Water Bottles -  Children are required to bring a water bottle each day.  Your child will have access to their bottle during the session in order to keep hydrated.  

 

Please ensure your child's clothing is clearly labelled to avoid loss or confusion. 

 

PE

Class 3 - Tuesday AM & Wednesday PM  

Class 4 - Wednesday AM & Thursday PM

 

Your child will need to have a PE kit in school on those days. As the weather is still cold, your child will need to have a warmer, outdoor kit. This includes trainers suitable for outdoor PE. Earrings must be removed. 

 

Reading

Children are expected to bring their reading book and diary into school on a daily basis! Children will read with an adult at least once a week. Please record in the diary when you have read with your child at home. 

 

Homework

New spellings will be given every Monday. Please ensure your childs spelling book is in school on a Monday.

We are reading we're going on a lion hunt in English, in Maths we are going to be looking and measurements and in Science we are looking at light and habitats.

Week 3 WOW Work

Autumn 1 - Week 2

 

English - To continue our transition into year 1 this week we started our project looking at The Gruffalo. We were really excited that it was written by the same author as our reading spine book - The Monkey Puzzle and lots of us were already familiar with this story. We completed lots of fab learning throughout the week based on The Gruffalo:

  • We read the story together as a class using actions to help us remember the words
  • We watched the BBC adaptation and created some Gruffalo masks
  • We created a story map to see if we could sequence the story - working together like the busy bees
  • We used our masks and story maps to role play the story in groups.

 

 

 

Maths - This week we were looking at counting and ordering numbers. We practised our number formation, counted forwards and backwards to 20 and we practised recognising and ordering numbers between 0-20. We also had lots of fun creating numbers using the manipulatives we learnt about last week. Miss Lyne and Miss Armstrong were very impressed by our super mathematicians in Year 1.

 

Science - This week we started looking at our Science topic for this half term - Ourselves. In this topic we are learning all about our 5 senses. We were all able to identify which of our body parts help us with each sense and then we went outside onto the field to see what we could feel, smell, see and hear. We came up with some fantastic ideas and we were able to link our learning back to our English lessons by using some fantastic adjectives to describe the things we found.

 

 

 

Autumn 1 - Week 1

 

Welcome back!

 

This week we welcomed the pupils back to Mesty Croft, where they met their new teachers for the first time since transition day and spent the first week in their new classroom. It has been so much fun getting to know our new Year 1 children.

 

We explored the story 'The Cautious Caterpillar' in our English lessons this week. This really helped us to explore our own emotions about coming back to school and seeing everyone, as well as thinking about all of the new changes in school. All of us said we felt a little bit nervous to come back on the first day, but the story showed us that change can be a good thing. Later in the week we reflected on our time in Reception, thought about our favourite topics and set our goals for this year.

 

 

In Maths we explored the different manipulatives that can help us when counting, adding, subtracting and lots more. We had a lot of fun using all of the different resources including; double-sided counters, dienes, cubes and numicon.

Children's Mental Health Week 2021

 

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and the theme this year is ‘Express Yourself. Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good. For Children's Mental Health Week 2021 we will be encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.

7.12.2020

This week in English we wrote a set of instructions on how to make Gruffalo Crumble.

We remembered to use our time words and bossy verbs, to make our instructions very descriptive. 

 

​​​​​​

2.12.2020

This week in Science we went outside and collected leaves. We found leaves that had fallen from deciduous trees. We then used these leaves to draw around and measure! We used our rulers and carefully measured them in centimetres. 

Week 4 23.11.20

Paper Plate Gruffalo

This week we had lots of fun creating a paper plate Gruffalo! To make our paper plate Gruffalo we followed a set of instructions, it was super fun and a great way of to start our new topic; writing instructions. 

Week 3 16.11.20

 

 Over the weekend, the school had some unexpected visitors!

 

We found evidence and sent it to the laboratory to be tested but they have sent us some pictures of the evidence they found.

 

 

Based on the evidence we decided that it must be the Gruffalo!

 

     

 

 

 

 

Week 2  9.11.20

Maths: representing numbers using objects

 

 

This week we have learnt how to represent numbers using objects. Our children worked super hard and although a difficult concept we cracked it! Check out a great example below.

 

          

 

 

 

Week 1 2.11.20

 
   
 
   

​​​​​​

Week 1 - One School One Book

This week we started in our new classes in Year 1. Our learning this week has been based around the story "The Tin Forest". Each year group was asked to complete a range of activities based on the story and then to create a class display. The children loved doing this and enjoyed reading the story. Have a look below at what we created!

 

 

Week 2 14.9.2020

This week we started our lessons! In Maths we practised our number formation and in DIRT we practised writing our letters. We got to write in our new books and this was very exciting. We have used this opportunity this week to practise writing the long and short date. We are getting super speedy with this now!
 

Week 3 21.9.2020

 

This week we have been doing some work on our number bonds to 5. We met Fred 5 the ladybird who helped us to understand how to make different combinations to 5. We used our Maths books to journal, and had a go at making bonds to 5 by using ladybird spots. 

                                                           Week 4      28.9.20

Week 5 - 5.10.2020 

 

This week we started to learn about Black History Month. We learnt about the story of Rosa Parks and her fight for equality. We discussed as a class what we would have done in her position, and how difficult it must have been to be as brave as she was. We then journalled some facts we had learnt about Rosa.
