Year 1 news...
Year 1 learn Phonics through our new programme ‘Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised’. We enjoy learning new sounds with our matching pictures and catchphrases. We apply this Phonics in our Reading and Writing and are beginning to explore alternative spellings for the same sound.
As Scientists we have been exploring a variety of materials and their properties. We have performed lots of different experiments to find out more about them and investigate how we can use them.
The Gingerbread Man
As part of our Literacy and Topic work we have been exploring the story of the Gingerbread Man. As fantastic writers we have been creating story maps and retelling the tale. We also baked Gingerbread people using our Mathematical skills to measure the ingredients.

The Gingerbread Man
We have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. We even got to make some gingerbread and eat them. They were delicious!
This half term we have been doing lots of tricky maths in Year 1. We have been adding and subtracting numbers to 20. We have used ten frames, whole-part models and showed the answers as abstract number sentences.
Fun Fitness Friday
What an exciting day! We will definitely be relaxing over the weekend. We have enjoyed a day full of exercise and fun. We can’t wait for the next Fun Fitness Friday!
Food from around Europe
We looked at a map of Europe and located four countries that we would like to try foods from. We chose pizza from Italy, cheese and croissants from France, Paella from Spain and frankfurter from Germany. They were mostly delicious!
Teddy Bears Picnic
Year 1 have had a very busy day celebrating the beginning of our new topic- Fabulous Food. First we wrote invitations to our favourite teddies to ask them to come to school for a picnic. Then we designed a sandwich and made them ourselves. Finally we enjoyed our delicious picnic with our friends.
