Welcome to Year 1! (9th Sept)

This week has been our first full week in year 1 and the children have settled back into school really well.

In our English lessons we have been listening to the story “The tiger who came to tea” by Judith Kerr. We have retold the story in our own words and designed a plate of food for the tiger to eat. We have also been learning about verbs and we watched an amazing video clip about diving giraffes! It was great fun using verbs to describe what they were doing. The link is below if you want to watch it again.

In Maths we have been exploring the classroom resources so we are familiar with them in the future. We have also been doing lots of counting forwards and backwards.

We have now started our topic work and are learning about animals, specifically pets. We have made a human bar chart to show our favourite pets. We are hoping to have some special visitors throughout this term to support our learning.

PE day for Mrs Morgan’s and the Year 1’s in Miss Banner’s class is Monday and Mrs Prophet’s class is Tuesday so please make sure PE kit is in school and earrings are covered on those days.
