Year 1

                    WELCOME TO YEAR 1!

Please find below this term's letter and curriculum poster

23.11.20: this week we are learning about shape. Year 1 have become shape inspectors and went on a search for 2D shapes in the school grounds. We found that the most common shape was a rectangle.

Inspired by our class book ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ we made lighthouses then used electrical components to make a bulb light up!

Brilliant learning from these 2 superstars this week-well done 😊

We learnt about the Mayflower landing in the ‘New World’ 400 years ago. We thought about how helpful the Native American people were in helping the colonists survive. Look at our wonderful headdress that we made to look like Native Americans!

Well done to these super stars who have all received an award recently.

415 years ago in 1605 Guy Fawkes and friends was found out for trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament with king James I inside. This is why we have bonfire night and fireworks today.

We wrote poems using our senses, we used onomatopoeia to describe firework sounds and made beautiful and colourful firework pictures.

23.10.20: Harvest. We thought carefully about what we are thankful for and wrote some prayers. We also did some super printing with vegetables and made patterns and pictures with them.

Did you know that hedgehogs get ready to hibernate in autumn? They use the leaves that have fallen from trees to make snuggly nests. Year 1 have been inspired by these prickly creatures to do some super collages and poems!

Well done to these 2 superstars this week 🙂

14.10.20:We are having so much fun learning all about autumn. Today we went on a hunt in the school grounds to find signs of autumn. We shall use our findings to inspire some poetry and art. Keep looking back at this page to see our work.

15.10.20: look at our mirror leaf drawings. We looked carefully at the colours and shapes of the leaves.

9.10.20: all of year 1 work hard and are BRILLIANT but these 3 have been chosen for being extra super duper this week 🙂

6.10.20 We worked hard to copy pictures in the style of Brian Pollard. We love his bright and colourful pictures of the local area!

1.10.20: We explored the school grounds to find micro-habitats and the animals living in them. It was great fun!

Well done to these 2 super pupils this week for their courtesy and diligence:brilliant!

Uh oh somebody swallowed Stanley! Stanley is a carrier bag who was mistaken by sea creatures for a jellyfish and he was eaten by mistake. Year 1 have learnt how important it is to recycle plastic and to use reusable carrier bags. We used old bags to make our own ‘Stanleys’!

Well done to these 2 children who have displayed great St Andrew’s values this week. We are very proud of you. All of year 1 are super- it was hard to choose.

16.9.20: Today was the 400 year anniversary of the Mayflower setting sail from Plymouth. We talked about the voyage and what it would have felt like to be on a crowded ship for 66 days. We also considered the Native Americans' feelings when the pilgrims arrived on their shores. Here are our Mayflower paintings.

11.9.20: what a busy week! The children have settled in so well. We’ve learnt about habitats and thought about what we need in our human habitats; we’ve also thought about people who are part of our community and our families. In maths we’ve been sorting objects and looking at how we represent numbers in different ways. We are all ready for a rest this weekend and are looking forward to Monday!

The children have settled in well and are enjoying their learning 😊
