Welcome to Year 1!
Our aim in Y1 is to ensure children have a happy, smooth and successful transition from the Foundation Stage into Key Stage One. The Y1 curriculum builds upon and extends children’s experiences in F2. Creativity in learning is very important and we create lots of fun challenges for the children to explore independently as part of our continuous provision within class. Children are steadily introduced to more formal learning and they remain motivated and challenged through a range of exciting topics based around their own interests - for example some of our learning themes this year are ‘Pirates’, ‘Animals’ and ‘Superheroes’!
Thank you for coming to visit our blog! We will be continually updating it so please come back soon to find out more about all the exciting things we have been up to, what the children have been learning and to take a look at their fantastic work!
Year 1 Team.
Our latest Learning Overview
Ooh, it feels nice to settle into these green lily pads and paddle in that cool water. Phileas and I are looking forward to relaxing in our lovely pond all summer long! I wonder what you are doing in the holidays, and what you've been up to this week?
James has been getting messy with his big sister! They've been mixing baking soda, food colouring and vinegar to create some amazing gloopy things!
Siena has created this amazing Seascape - wow! I really like your Pirate Puppets too!
Have a lovely holiday!
That's right, this week it's been my turn to help with the vegetables in Mr Bromage's greenhouse. Even though the weather has been a bit cold this week, it's lovely and warm in here!
Rane and his sister Sockju baked a green frog cookie - it looks tasty! Sofia has been busy too - look at her great priate ship!
Emmie has been thinking hard about place value, adding together three-digit numbers - Wow!
Take a look at Chloe's Bubble Fish - she says that it is the size of a house!
Here is a collection of art from Class 5:
Thanks so much for all of your pictures!
That's right, Phileas and Jess have been hard at work looking after Mr Bromage's lettuces. Phileas doesn't really like eating salad much, but he does like to eat up the slugs that sometimes enjoy munching Mr Bromage's lettuces. I think that Jessie might have spotted one!
Look at Siena's and Omar's 'ship in a bottle'!
Siena's also been busy writing a letter to Jim Lad, and so has Max, or should I say 'Matilda'!
Your pirate scene is wonderful, Clara, and so is your writing all about trees!
Don't forget to send in your learning pictures for Philippa to see next week!
That's right, everyone - Jessie and I have been doing some sunbathing in the back garden this week. You might have had a sit-down in the sun as well, but I know that you've been busy with your home learning too!
It must have taken a long time to make this craft monkey, Max! I really like your 'Wanted!' Pirate Poster too!
And what about Zara and Siena's - Lexi the Pirate and Captain Cutless sound fearsome!
So does Pirate Molly, Olivia! Ben did his picture below as part of a drawing tutorial with Pete McKee!
Omar has even labelled his pirate!
See you all next week,
Like my twin sister Philippa, I'm learning at home at the moment. One of the things that I've been doing this week is exploring the world through this really big atlas with Jess. I really like looking at the pages about tropical rain forests, because I'd love to go on holiday to a rain forest one day with Philippa (although I'm not sure how much Jessie would like it - she might be too hot there in all that fur!).
Finlay has been busy making with his pirate activities this week - look at the ship he made!
Meanwhile, James has been writing about pirates!
And Alfie has been busy with his phonics (Jess says 'woof' to your cat)!
