Look what is happening in Year 1!

Lighthouses, place value and animal fun!

We are really enjoying reading ‘The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch’ by Ronda and David Armitage.

We also had lots of fun using props to act out the story. The children have started to re-tell the story in their own mini books.

In phonics we have revised ie/i-e/igh/oo/ew/ue/oa/oe/o-e/ow/er/ir/ur. Please keep practising reading and writing words with all theses phonemes in at home. Can your child spot any in their books?


We have been looking at the place value of numbers up to 100. We started by practising counting forwards and backwards within 100, this included counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We looked to find patterns in number sequences. Can you recognise any patterns in the numbers below?

We have also partitioned numbers into tens and ones.

Finally we looked at comparing numbers using the words ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’. We remembered the importance at looking at the tens in each number to help us to compare 2 numbers.


This week we have been learning about the continents and oceans of the world. We discussed where children had been on holidays and what the weather was like. We then looked at the 7 continents of the world. How many continents can your child remember?

We enjoyed singing these fun songs…

Sam’s Safari

We all thoroughly enjoyed our animal workshop. We met some amazing animals and learnt lots of interesting facts. There was Mo the frog, Tony the salamander, Bertie and Spike the lizards, Titch the tortoise, Flash the snake, Smartie the chicken, Jemima the duck, Holiday the armadillo and Pinto the chinchilla! What an exciting morning!

PTA Mountain Challenge

Thank you for all your support with this PTA event. There has been lots of walking and lots of money raised – well done.

These three Year 1 boys decided they wanted to climb a real mountain! Here they are on their adventure to the top of Ingleborough. They walked 11 miles each – well done boys!

Have a super weekend,

The Year 1 Team
