Welcome to Year 1!
Would you be willing to listen to children in 1KL read?
We are always looking for volunteers to help the children improve their reading skills.
Please speak to Miss Lilley or Mrs Smith for more details.
Thank you to everyone that came to watch our Christmas play. The children worked really hard to learn all of the songs and their hard work paid off during the performance.
Kimmy's Petting Zoo
The children had a brilliant day today when Kimmy's Petting Zoo came to visit. We learnt about pythons, leaf mantises, meerkats, chameleons, armadillos and tree frogs. We got to touch them and hold them. Some of the children were even brave enough to have the snake around their neck! The children enjoyed learning more facts about animals, linking in with our current English topic - non-fiction.
The children have been working really hard in their PE lessons. They were really pleased when they won the trophy for earning the most amount of gold medals during their lessons. Well done 1KL!
Children in need
The children really enjoyed dressing up in their Pudsey outfits on Friday! Thank you for all your donations and to those of you that made cake.
Our topic this term is 'Rumble in the Jungle', we have been looking at non-fiction writing this half term. We are going to create our own non-fiction posters about jungle animals. The children are really enjoying learning facts about the animals!
The star writer in 1KL this term is Lily.
Well done Lily!
In maths, we have been learning about how to add and take away. We have now moved onto learning about 2D shapes. The children made shape pizzas and have gone on shape hunts around the school to see what they can find.
In science we are learning about the four seasons and the weather. We have been looking at the changes that happen during Autumn. We went on an Autumn walk around field to see what signs told us that it is Autumn. We have learnt about what clothes we have to wear during Autumn and Winter and why we should wear them. We read 'The Growing Story' by Ruth Krauss, the children talked about how their winter clothes are too small for them when they need to wear them again the next year. We are going to measure ourselves and see how much we grow between now and after Christmas.
In art we have been looking at special events that have happened this half term. The children learnt about the Gunpowder Plot and then made a firework picture using crayons and water colour paints. We then learnt about Remembrance day and why it is important. Children also learnt about the significance of the poppy. In art, we used tissue paper to decorate our own poppies.
Please remember to read at least three times a week to be in with a chance of going to our reading party at the end of term!
Every Wednesday after school you are more than welcome to come into the classroom with your children to have a look in their books to see what they have been learning and to ask any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you!
Indoor PE - Tuesday
Outdoor PE - Friday
Please make sure your child has their correct kit, long hair is tied back and earrings have been taken out.
Every Wednesday flapjack is sold in the playground at break time for all children at a cost of 20p.
Good work assembly
Thank you to everyone who came to our good work assembly last half term. The children really enjoyed showing you all that they have learnt and we hope you enjoyed seeing their work!
Key Stage 1's Christmas Play will be performed to all Year 1 families on 7th December 2016 at 2:30pm. The children are working hard to learn our Christmas songs and are really excited to perform them to you all. We look forward to seeing you there. Previously said 6th December, sorry for any confusion!
