Year 1

Autumn 1

In order to help our children, develop an authentic understanding of place value, it is crucial that they construct meaning for themselves through hands-on activities. This understanding needs to begin with repeated exposure to different systems such as the base ten system (blue sticks and small cubes) and Numicon (colour coded pieces which represent the different numbers). Recognising that numbers can be broken apart, rearranged, and re-formed, gives children a better understanding of how addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division work.

The children thoroughly enjoyed working in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. They were challenged to recreate paths using natural items such a stones, pebbles and branches. We encouraged them to think about colour and texture when ordering. The children were also asked to build walls using sticks, bricks and blocks and had to take into consideration their size, colour and texture. The glitter paths added a little sparkle.

Autumn 1 WOW!

 

As part of our WOW, Year One have been introduced to our Me, Myself and I topic. Our aims were to discuss, identify and label parts of the human body and our facial features. We used loose parts, natural items and large paper to draw, create and represent ourselves. It was lots of fun!

Year 1 Spellings

 

These are the some of the key words we learn to read, write and confidently apply within different contexts in Year 1. Learning to read and write these words at home will help us read more challenging text and write a range of sentences independently.

Year 1: A Year in Review 2017/18

 

Year 1 have had a fun filled year. They began Year 1 learning about healthy lifestyles and the human body. This led to some interesting pieces of artwork based on the style of artist Andy Goldsworthy.

Year 1 went on to create an enormous junk model version of London in our ‘Bright Lights Big City’ topic. This was an enormous creative group effort that the children thoroughly enjoyed.

The children’s journey then took them on an Antarctic adventure with Sir Robert Falcon Scott the explorer. They were fascinated by his story and expedition. The children really enjoyed getting to meet him and interview him.

The next chapter of our learning journey took us deep in to the jungle, when Year 1 visited Blackpool Zoo and had an interactive workshop. They got to meet giant hissing cockroaches and many other great animals.

The children have had a fantastic year filled with lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities. Miss Wooding and Mrs Webster would like to say well done to Year 1 on their brilliant work and amazing effort. The children have worked so hard and learnt so much this year. The Children will be amazing in Year 2.

 

Year 1 Class of 2016/17

 

In Year 1 we have enjoyed lots of learning outside the classroom and through creative projects. We have covered topics about winter wonderlands, wild animals and dinosaurs. Year 1 children have developed in to confident speakers and performers by doing the Christmas show, our Year group assembly and taking part in the Choral Speaking Competition. It has been an energetic and enthusiastic year. The children have all become independent learns with a great Growth Mindset.
