Year 1 news...
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. Thank you Mr Murphy for our wonderful session. We enjoyed exercising to 80’s and 90’s music! 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.
We met up with our Reading Buddies during Poetry Week. It was lovely to hear all about the poem our buddy had been learning about. We can’t wait to see them again soon.
We designed puppets by deciding which colour felt we would like to use and what we would use to decorate them. We then made them by sewing two pieces of felt together. Finally we decorated them and evaluated them by thinking of what we would change if we made them again.
Year 1 Christmas Party
We had the best Christmas party with lots of party games and party food. We even played musical statues and pass the parcel.
Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday 13th December we wore Christmas jumpers to help raise money for Save the Children. Here are some pictures of the fluffy, funny and colourful jumpers we wore!
Toys from a Long Time Ago
As part of our toy topic we looked at toys from a long time ago and some new toys. We sorted them into groups of toys that are around now and toys from a long time ago.
