Look what is happening in Year 1!

Another busy week in Year 1!

Friday 2nd July | No comments yet


We have continued our work based on the story ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We began the week by tasting some mustard! Look at their faces…no wonder the seagulls didn’t like it in the sandwiches!

The children have now all finished re-telling the story and are very proud of their mini books.

Days of the week and surnames

We have been learning how to spell the days of the week. The children have been writing them in a sentence.

Can your child spell them all? There is a game on Spelling Shed to help them practise spelling the days of the week. 1GK are in 8th place on the school leader board. Can 1B catch them up?

Our word of the week is surname. Some of the children don’t know their surname and many of them can’t write them. Please can you help your child practise at home – remembering that all names start with a capital letter.


We are continuing to learn about Place Value. We are comparing numbers by looking at the tens and ones in each number. Which symbol do we use? <, > or =. Remember the crocodile always eats the biggest/greatest number.

We challenged ourselves to use digit cards like the ones below to answer different questions. We had to be careful we only used the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. We discovered sometimes there could be lots of correct answers!

Finally we ordered numbers within 100. We look at the tens number first. Can you explain what the correct answer is?


We have been learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy. He likes to use natural objects to create his pieces of art. Here we are having a go at making some natural art…

1B at Rodley Nature Reserve

We had a great time at the nature reserve. The highlight was all the tiny frogs hiding in the grass! We had to be very careful where we put our feet!

Picnic Lunch

Today the children had a picnic for lunch and enjoyed them outside on the grass!

Have a lovely weekend,

The Year 1 Team
