Year 1

Published on Thursday 4 July 2024 by Miss Lywood.

Year 1 were delighted to take part in Crook Primary School's Booknic last week where we all enjoyed reading our favourite stories to our families whilst enjoying a little picnic. Although the weather was a tad windy, this didn't deter anyone from having a good time and getting stuck in to their stories. It was lovely to walk around and see so many families spending quality time together and sharing in the pleasure of reading. Many children also chose some new stories to go home with from our pre-loved book stations. We hope you enjoy them!

If you have any book recommendations that you would like to share with your class please take a picture of the book and send it into your class teacher with a little comment of why you liked it and who you would recommend it to. Who in your class would love to read it? Does it suit someone's personality/tastes in particular? You might like to recommend a fiction story, a non-fiction text, or perhaps even some poetry. We look to forward to sharing your reviews together.

    Year 1 - Celebrations all round!

    Published on Friday 14 June 2024 by Miss Lywood.

    This week has been pretty spectacular as the children have worked their socks off completing their phonics screening checks. We've all been amazed with their efforts! The children remembered all their phonemes and were able to spot them hidden in words. They even were able to decode pseudo words with ease. We couldn't be prouder of them, so well done Year 1. As a special treat, we spent Friday afternoon celebrating with ice creams and a movie.

    As it's a special day for fathers on Sunday, we spent some time writing out our Father's Day cards and making rosettes. We hope you all have a wonderful day!

      Art in Year 1!

      Published on Friday 17 May 2024 by Miss Macieira.

      Today we have been creating our very own clay tiles. We used an array of tools and inspiration from three famous artists to engrave floral patterns into our clay. The artists we looked to for inspiration were Claude Monet, William Morris and Georgia O'Keeffe.

      Next week, we will use our clay tiles to print onto fabric. We can't wait to show you our final pieces!

        Fantastic Writing!

        Published on Monday 29 April 2024 by Miss Macieira.

        Over the last 2 weeks, Year 1 have been introduced to the work of William Shakespeare. We have looked at 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and explored the setting of this play. As you can see, we worked particularly hard to include our basic, non-negotiable skills into our writing. These skills are, finger spaces, full stops, capital letters, writing on the line and correct letter formation. Which is your favourite piece of writing?

          Year 1 Biology

          Published on Monday 4 March 2024 by Miss Macieira.

          Today we classified animals according to the food they eat. We identified which common animals were carnivores, omnivores and herbivores and gave examples of what they enjoy eating.

          We then made the poo of an animal from each of the three groups by selecting appropriate ingredients. We used feathers and googly eyes to represent the animals ate by carnivores and omnivores and dried fruit, nuts and leaves to represent a herbivore and omnivore's diet.

            Children's Mental Health Week

            Published on Saturday 10 February 2024 by Miss Lywood.

            The children enjoyed wearing their chosen outfits and spent the day expressing themselves freely with lots of conversation, playing and learning alongside one another and taking turns to share their opinions, likes and dislikes.

            We also celebrated Safer Internet Day in school and discussed the important ways that we could maintain safety whilst having fun on the internet. We talked about not sharing private information and if we came across anything that made us feel uncomfortable, we discussed who our trusted adults were to seek out for help.

            We had a special visit from Crook Primary's E-Cadets who shared a fun PowerPoint with us about how to maintain safety on the internet. It was so lovely to have such wonderful role models in the classroom and the children were in awe, engaged in their learning and participated fully.

            We then got the laptops out to enjoy playing the game Interland. Interland is an online adventure that teaches the key lessons of internet safety through four fun and challenging games.
