Welcome to this week’s Year One blog.

This week we have been learning about writing facts in English. We have been finding out about different types of animals e.g. mammals, reptiles etc. The children are trying hard to use capital letters at the start of sentences, finger spaces between each word and remembering to put a full stop at the end.

In maths we have been exploring positional and directional language. The children have learnt about left and right, quarter turns, clockwise and anticlockwise. We had lots of fun outside being “human Beebots”!

In topic, the children made scrumptious sandwiches with their choice of filling.  Maybe you could make a sandwich and take it on an adventure in the Great Outdoors. Remember to send us a photo of what you get up to when you’re out and about!



This week we will be revisiting e-safety and discussing our prior learning about staying safe.

There is information for parents and carers here:
