Lots of fun learning in Year 1!
Friday 14th September | 3 comments
In maths we have been learning about place value. We have been practising writing our numbers as well as thinking about how we can represent numbers differently, including words, using equipment and by drawing pictures.
We have been talking about our families in our literacy lessons. The children all drew a picture of their family and labelled it. We have also begun our daily phonic lessons. This week we have revised ll, ff, ss, and zz.
Each week the children will have key skills lessons. This half term we are focusing on the correct formation of the letters and digits. This week we looked at the ‘Curly Caterpillar’ family and practised writing c, a and d cursively and forming 0,1 and 2 correctly.
In history we looked at their baby photographs and talked about how they had changed. They thought about what they needed when they were a baby and what they need now. Look out for our ‘Guess Who?’ displays. Can you work out who all the babies are?
In our computing lesson we have learnt how to log on to the laptops and next week we will be looking at an online reading programme called Bug Club. Login details will be sent out next week so that you can do it at home.
In PE the children had fun outside doing lots of SAQ (speed, agility, quickness) activities. Our second PE lesson every week will be focusing on gymnastics and the children will be learning different balances, jumps and rolls.
This week we started our exciting Friday afternoon lessons. The children will do different activities each week. This half term they will do RE, music, food skills and a tree walk.
We are visiting the school farm over the next weeks – please can your child bring in a pair of wellington boots to leave at school? They can use their new welly pegs to keep them together.
The children were very excited about their first homework task in their learning logs!! This work is due in on Wednesday 26th September. Thank you for all your support with reading, phonics, spellings and learning logs – it really does make a difference.
Don’t forget to bring your soft toy to school next week!
It is the last week of voting for the Leeds Children’s Mayor – Charlotte in Year 6 has been doing lots of campaigning. The children have all voted in school but may vote again online. Click on the link to watch Charlotte’s video and to find out how to vote online.
Have a lovely weekend.
