Year 1

Mrs L Robinson & Miss L Ridley

Welcome to Year 1

 

In Year 1 we cover lots of different and exciting topics as we introduce children to the subjects of the curriculum.  We base much of our English and Maths work around our topics.

The children develop into independent learners during the course of the year and become more able readers and writers.  We write for lots of different purposes including letters, lists, stories and non fiction reports.  We take part in Guided Reading every day which helps us to improve our reading skills.

In our Maths work we cover a wide range of calculation strategies in addition and subtraction.  We introduce the concept of simple multiplication and division.  We cover work on different ways of measuring and the names of properties of 2D and 3D shapes.  We also take part in weekly mental maths and problem solving activities.

 

 

Beanstalks progress…..

Look at how much our beanstalks have grown. We are amazed at how tall they are when they started from such a tiny little seed. We have learnt that plants need water and sunshine to grow. [gallery size="medium" columns="5"...

Labeling plants

As the children from Year 1 have been watching their beanstalks grow - some more slowly than others - they have been learning the names of different parts of a plant. [gallery size="medium"...

Beanstalk diaries

Year 1 are taking lots of care and attention over their beanstalks and are delighted that some of them are starting to grow. They have been keeping a diary in their science books to look at the changes that are taking place. [gallery size="large"...

Doubling and Halving

Year 1 have been looking at the skill of doubling and halving in their maths lessons. With help from animal characters they have doubled the number of objects each one had. They used cubes to find halves of numbers. [gallery size="large" columns="5"...

Gingerbread Men…

Year 1 loved decorating their own gingerbread men this week. They were so pleased that they didn't get up off the table and run away. The children also kept a close eye out for a sneaky fox who might try and eat them up before they got the chance! [gallery...

Beanstalk Planting

The children in Year 1 have begun their science topic on plants. They are learning about what plants need to be able to grow and survive. Their first task is to grow a beanstalk!

We can half an amount

In Year 1 maths lessons they have been investigating halving amounts of numbers. Mrs Robinson and Miss Ridley have been impressed with their skills. They have even learnt how to write a half as a fraction! [gallery size="large"...
