Year 1 Routines
PE – is held on a Tuesday and Thursday.
Homework – this term children have been given a ‘My Home Learning Challenges’ booklet. Pupils have until Christmas to complete these challenges. They can bring their signed booklets in when they have completed each challenge for a stamp.
Reading – we aim to read with all children every week, however books can be changed on request as needed. Children are encouraged to put their reading books in the box for changing when needed.
More Garden Time
The class had their guided reading lesson down in the garden in the story circle. They read the story of ‘The Very Big Turnip’.
Year 1 have been having a great time in the garden. However, before they could start planting vegetables, it was decided that a new scarecrow needed to be made. Year 6 have been helping a little bit as well.
Busy, Busy, Busy!
Year 1 have been learning how to use the laptops and writing about their favourite toys. They were then very busy making Mother’s Day cards as well as baking and decorating biscuits.
The class went on a story walk around the school grounds. The children collected pictures and retold the different events that happened on Good Friday.
Aliens Have Landed
Everyone has been very busy designing and making their own hand puppets. The children have learnt how to sew and have made some fabulous alien friends. See more pictures in our Alien Puppet Making Gallery.
Year 1 Protect Beegu
Year 1 were challenged with the task to build a shelter to protect Beegu the Alien from a storm that was coming. The children used natural materials to build the shelters and did a fantastic job at working together as a team. Please see our Shelter Building Gallery for more pictures.
The children have been thinking of fantastic adjectives. In groups, they then described their favour characters and presented their favourite adjectives to the class.
