Year 1 Weekly Updates


Week beginning 12/11/18
This week the children have been using all their imagination to make and write their stories about a Superhero. They have worked really hard and have done really well! In Maths we are finishing with additions and the children have shown us that they have retained and understood addition really well. Well done Year 1!



What a way to end the term! The Astrodome visit was fantastic! The children were buzzing with excitement all day long. The children have had an amazing first term of the year. They have settled in really well and have worked really hard. Well done year 1! Looking forward to term 2 Superheroes!



The children are looking at comic strips as we are going to make out own based on Beegu. They really love this book and the loveable character in it. I also heard year 1 sing during their music lesson. They are very good!



This week we have started learning about Number Bonds. Number Bonds are 2 numbers that make a whole number. The children learnt this practically first using the Part-Part-Whole model. They have worked really hard and have done really well. Well done year 1!!


This week has been very busy as the children wrote their first Hot Piece. This is their first piece of writing. They started with a draft, then they edited or extended it to improve it. Finally they wrote their Hot Piece which is now proudly displayed on our wall. Well done year 1! You have worked extremely hard this week!


This week I would like to thank the parents who came to the Year 1 talk. If you have any questions please see your class teacher or Mrs. Adams. This week has been another busy week of maths and English. We have explored a piece of writing and we wrote a description as a whole class. Next week they will have a go at doing this themselves. Exciting times!

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone who supported our Children in Need fun raising this week! So far we have raised £1433.73!!!!

Congratulations to the Year 5/6 Handball team for winning their recent tournament!!
