Year 1

Welcome to Year One!

This term we are learning lots of different fairy tales. At the moment we are exploring the story of "The Three Little Pigs". See if you can ask your child to retell the story to you!

Jack and the Beanstalk

Over the last few weeks we have been learning the story of Jack and the beanstalk. The children have been practising telling each other the story. Maybe you could challenge them at home and ask them to tell you the story too!

We are now innovating the story and have decided to change it from Jack and the beanstalk to Jack and the ladder! Some children have come up with other ideas such as:

  • Jack and the jet pack
  • Jack and the volcano
  • Jack and the giraffes neck
  • Jack and the mountain
  • Jack and the giant rock

We are currently working hard on writing our innovated masterpieces. We really are authors in the making!

Science in action!

Year One went on an investigation within the school grounds. Our mission was to find out all about Autumn. We explored the colours we could see, the weather, the plants and even the sounds of autumn. We love to get hands on with our learning and find things out for ourselves. Take a look at us in action!

We are currently working really hard on consolidating our numbers to 20. Please practise as much counting at home as possible. This may be counting the items in your weekly shopping, counting out the ingredients for a meal or anything else that you can include counting in. It would be fab if you could practise writing the numbers too. Have fun!

P.E in year 1 - We've been working on our balances in P.E
