A busy week in Year 1!
Friday 27th June | 1 comment
What an exciting week we have had! All the children thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Skipton castle. Thank you very much to all the parents who came with us – we hope you had a good time too. See separate posts for photographs from our trips.
In literacy we have all written a recount of our trip to the castle. The children used some time openers in their writing – first, next, after that and finally. They tried hard to remember everything they’ve learnt this year including punctuation, connectives and using adjectives.
In numeracy we have been practising the time and most of the children are becoming more confident using an analogue clock. Maybe you could practise at home. We’ve also revisited place value as some children are still finding it difficult breaking up bigger numbers into hundreds, tens and units.
In our curriculum session we spent time researching Skipton Castle in preparation for our trips. The children know now lots of facts about the castle. Did you know it was built in 1090 by a Norman baron called Robert de Romille and he built it out of wood? It was rebuilt and the Clifford family moved in. Lady Clifford planted a yew tree in the middle of the courtyard and it is now 900 years old.
In PE we have continued practising our medieval dance ready for our banquet on the 7th July. Are you having fun at home getting your outfits ready? We have also been practising our athletic skills ready for Sports Day on the 17th July.
On the 3rd July the children will be finding out who their teacher will be in Year 2. They will be spending the afternoon in their new classroom getting to know their teacher. After school that day there will be time for parents and carers to meet their child’s new teacher and have a look around the room. We can’t believe the year is nearly over!!
Have a great weekend.
