The Queen's 90th Birthday.

Today (10.6.16) we have been celebrating the Queen's birthday.

We learnt about Britain and the royal family; in computing we learnt how to use copy and paste to find pictures of the Queen throughout history, we made cards for the Queen and we tried our hardest to learn the British national anthem. We've had a really fun day as you can see from the pictures.

WOW DAY TO ASH END FARM!!!

Year 1 went on a trip to the farm on Wednesday 11th May 2016

 

 

In literacy this term we have been learning about the story Farmer Duck.

We have used this topic and linked it to our trip to the farm.

 

Some children met Icky the barn owl and some of them were able to hold him. They also experienced feeding the farm animals.

 

This is what some of the children thought of the trip.

 

Abdul Ahad “I liked feeding the goats.”

 

Adam “My favourite part was holding Icky the owl.”

 

Summayah “I was very excited to stroke the baby chicks".

                  

Aisha "I really enjoyed this trip."

 

 

Phonics with Mrs Begum on 13th May 2016

 

 

Children from year 1 have been introduced to split diagraphs.

Mrs G begum showed some examples of words with split diagraphs and then the children worked in groups of three to come up with more real  and alien words with split diagraphs. They enjoyed using the chalks on coloured paper. They also came up with lots of words that they thought of independently.

FUN BOOK FRIDAY!!!

 

On our first ever 'Fun Book Friday' 2 children from 1SD chose their favourite book from home to bring in and share with their friends. Aysha wanted to share 'Splat the Cat'. We liked this book because the cat went to school for the first time and had a few funny catastrophies whilst he was there. Mahir wanted to share his favourite comic with everyone. We looked at every page and enjoyed all the cool pictures. Then we read one of the short stories from the comic and enjoyed making all the sounds to match the actions in the pictures!

It's half term already, the time has gone by so quickly and the children have made a great start settling into their new classes and new routines. 

A quick reminder that all year 1 children will bring home a half term homework pack on Friday 23rd October. The pack includes some fun activities that you can do with your child.  The homework activities given are to support your child when they return to school after half term.

 

If you are looking for activities to do during the holidays, you could try finding and naming 2d and 3d shapes around the house and describing the different places that you visit during the holidays.

 

We hope you all have a great half term and stay safe from the Year 1 team.

Year 1 Curriculum overview Autumn 2015

I want a pet - The children in year 1 are learning how to describe. To help us do this we have learnt a story called 'I want a pet.' The story is about a little girl who wants a pet. She describes all the pets she really wants and then gets an egg. We wonder what's inside the egg? This story map reminds us how to retell the story. Ask your child if they can retell the story at home.
