We have had a lovely week in Year 1. We had a great walk into town and looked at lots of important aspects of our local area- we saw Tudor buildings, the fountain, the Old and New Cathedral, the statue of Lady Godiva and we saw the clock strike 11. The children were impeccably behaved and a great example for our school and your families.


Next week we are continuing our work on The Little Red Hen were we will be acting out the story and writing in role as the Little Red Hen and the animals. In maths we will be looking at fractions.

We had such a fun filled week last week with our focus on The BFG. We had lots of visits from him and he left us lots of things to do. We hope your children enjoyed it as much as the staff did! 


This week has started with a visit from The Little Red Hen which will be our focus in English until half term. In maths we will be looking at ordering numbers and writing numerals. In science we have observed our beans and measured to see how tall they are aswell as leading the different parts of a plant and the jobs they have.







In theme we will be exploring Our Local Area by going on walk into the city centre to see the Tudor houses in Spon Street, the statue of Lady Godiva and the Old Cathedral. Letters about this will be sent home tomorrow. 


Thank you for all your Harvest donations so far. 

And this week a visit from The Little Red Hen!

What a busy week we have had in Year 1! We have began to look at our story of the Magic Porridge Pot which will continue next week. In maths we have compared groups of objects, ordered numbers, found 1 more and 1 less and counted in 2s. Next week we are looking at addition and subtraction. In Science we began our plant topic, finding out about what plants need to grow. Next week we will be planting seeds and observing them over the next few weeks. In Theme we began our Local Area topic by discussing the things we see on our way to school. Next week we will discussing the types of home we live in. 


We have had our first P.E. Lessons this week. Can I please ask that all clothes are labelled (including their kit) as we have had lots of missing items.


Friday 23rd September is Year 1s Meet the Teacher meeting at 3:30pm in the Year 1 classroom. This is a very helpful meeting where Miss Doran can share important information with parents and give parents the opportunity to ask questions. Hopefully you can all make it. 


Enjoy the weekend!

What a busy day we have had in Year 1! All the children have been stars and Miss Doran and Miss Squires have been impressed with them today. We're very much looking forward to our Year 1 journey this year. 


This week we are giving the children the opportunity to get used to their new learning environment, as well as giving the staff the time to see how well each child is doing in reading, writing and maths.


Our normal timetable will start next week. In English we will be looking at the story of the Magic Porridge Pot, in maths we will be looking at place value, in Science we will begin our Plants topic and in Theme we will begin our learning about Our Local Area. 


P.E. days will be Wednesday and Friday this term.


Can we ask for your child to come to school with a bottle of water daily please.
