Welcome back Year 1!
Sunday 24th February | 3 comments
We have another busy and exciting half term planned in Year 1. We will be learning lots about our amazing bodies and exploring our five senses. Look at our new areas:
We will also be having some special visitors! What do you think this is and what might live in it?
This week we are having a ‘Busy Body Day’. We will begin by labelling the human body and finding out and writing lots of interesting body facts. We will also have fun competing in the ‘Amazing Body Olympics’.
In our literacy lessons we will be writing poetry about our senses and will also become chicken experts and write our own non-fiction book. We will also continue with our daily phonic lessons, guided reading and learn how to join up our handwriting.
We will be doing lots of practical investigations based on the body, senses and chickens in our science lessons! We will be visiting the farm lots so please make sure that your child has a pair of named wellington boots in school. We are looking forward to our Eureka workshop on Thursday 7th March.
In maths we will be doing lots of work about place value and also having fun with lots of practical measuring.
In our PE lessons we are beginning our games unit of work. During our Friday afternoon rotation the children will be doing RE, food skills, music and art.
We hope your child’s amazing art is on display in your homes. Thank you for all your kind donations – we raised over £150.
Please don’t forget to send money or contribute via ParentPay for the upcoming school events. Eureka is a fun half day workshop and on World Book Day the ‘Rainbow Factory’ will be performing a show.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.
