This term we have been learning about incredible inventions. Here are some of our own incredible robot inventions we designed to help reception children :)

Learning our "Left and Right"

 

Here is a song that we have been enjoying to help us learn our left and rights. See if you can sing along at home!

 

Measuring

Year One have been learning how to measure the length of all sorts of items in class. We have been using non-standard units to compare and measure. Can you spot what we used to do this?

Diversity Week

 

It has been an action packed week in school. We have been busy learning all about "equality". On Wednesday we had a very exciting visit from "Aston Hearing". We learnt all about out ears and how we can hear. We also learnt that not everyone has good hearing or can even hear at all. As part of this workshop we learnt some sign language. Take a look at the videos and pictures of us practising our new skills.

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!

Art in Year One - We explored the work of Andy Goldsworthy and had a go at creating our own masterpieces. Take a look...

Counting

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

Parent Information: Please see below the power point introducing you to Year One. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team.
