Look what is happening in Year 1!

It is starting to feel like Christmas in Year One!

Friday 4th December | 5 comments

In our RE lessons this week we have been learning about how Christians celebrate Christmas. We enjoyed making our Christingles – can your child remember what all the parts symbolise? On Tuesday we took them to St Johns church and met the Vicar Paul Tudge who showed us around the church. We explored the church and went on a photo hunt. Then we listened to the story about why Christians make a Christingle at Christmas time. We also sang a Christingle song.

In maths we have been looking at the book ‘Picture Pie’ by Ed Emberley. It is all about creating pictures using whole, half and quarter circles. The children created some super pictures. We then moved onto working out halves and quarters of numbers and objects.

In literacy we have been reading and writing instructions. The children followed a set of instructions to create a Christmas card and then the next day they wrote their own set of instructions. Can your child remember some of the bossy verbs they used?

In science we have continued exploring materials. This week we have been focussing on floating and sinking. They began by looking at a set of objects and predicting if they would float or sink and then they tested them. They then used this knowledge to help them create something that would keep the Queen’s knickers dry and not sink!

Your child should have brought home the song words for our Christmas concert. Have they been practising them? They also need to learn the ‘Strictly dance’. Click this link for Christmas concert fun… http://ffks1.primaryblogger.co.uk/uncategorized/practising-for-our-christmas-performance/

Enjoy your weekend.

    What a busy week! The Christingles look lovely and Nathan has been telling us all about what each aspect symbolises. It will make the Christmas Eve service even more memorable this year.

    Nathan was just explaining why he looks so happy in the science experiment…the Queen’s knickers were kept dry…phew!!

    What busy and fun week you’ve had yr 1. Olivia has been telling us all about Christingles and what each bit represents. I think Olivia has really enjoyed this term, learning about the Queen and the Victorian time.

  3. Sheila Singh (Ashwins mum) says:

    All the children have had a busy week learning different things. Ashwin has enjoyed making the christingles and explained to us what they mean. He has also enjoyed the experiment about floating and sinking. He is looking forward to the Christmas concert now……

    Erin had an ‘amazing’ week last week and we couldn’t believe how many new things she had learned and still managed to fit in two school trips! Brilliant! (Well done to everyone involved).
