Welcome to 1W


Welcome back after the half term break. We hope you have all enjoyed a relaxing time with your family and friends.


Hot and Cold


To begin this half term, the children will be learning about Remembrance day and why we have it. The children will create their own poppy collage and find out about its symbolism. We will then move on to Geography-focussed learning through our new topic Hot and Cold. The children will learn about the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and identify daily and seasonal weather patterns. Our learning will then move further afield, enabling the children to explore hot and cold places around the world. 




Reading Books


The children will continue to be given 3 reading books at a time. Please try to read each day with your child, even if it is only a couple of pages, and note this down in their reading record. The children will be given a specific day of the week and their books will be changed on that day if they have been completed and their reading record is signed. During and after completion of the book, please spend time discussing the setting, characters and key words from the story to further your child's understanding of the text. Each child will be bringing a 'Tricky Word' bookmark home with their reading books, containing a list of words which are not phonetically plausible. Please could you support your child to read through these words regularly. 

Children are asked to bring their books into school on a daily basis as this will enable us to write a comment in their Reading Diary when they have taken part in either Guided or Individual reading.




Our class have P.E. on a Tuesday and Friday each week. Please ensure your child has their full, named P.E. kit in school on these days. 




Please ensure that all items of school uniform are named so that if they are left behind, we can return them to the correct owners. 




Our healthy snack scheme will continue this half term. If your child is taking part in the scheme please ensure that you send in their money every Monday, or at the beginning of each half term/term.

Year 1 Maths Overview

The children have had a very busy start to the second half of the term. In Maths we have been learning our number bonds to 10, and addition. We have been practising using cubes, ten frames, our fingers and we even set up a sweet shop to find pairs of sweets which could be bought for 10 pence.  
The children have enjoyed learning new skills on the computers. They have been practising mouse control; dragging and dropping items, and minimising and restoring pages. They have also enjoyed using the Bee-Bots. 
The children have been learning about Remembrance this week. On Monday, we observed a one minute silence in class. The children learnt facts about Remembrance day and the symbol of the poppy. They created their own poppy collage and generated fantastic writing.
The children have been very busy in Science! In class, we have been tracking the changes in the weather and the children have been recording the associated data. We enjoyed a 'crafty afternoon' last week-the children painted autumn trees and created a hedgehog collage. This week, our learning has moved on to animal classification. The children identified animals which are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores and created a Venn diagram.
