Welcome to Year 1!
We are very excited to welcome you back to school after a long time at home.
There have been some changes since we were last in school to our Year One unit. Miss Clemence is working from home to support the children's learning and Mrs Park is teaching 1C.
In Year 1 we are very lucky to be supported by two fantastic teaching assistants in Mrs Young and Mrs Knight.
We look forward to building on last year's work in Foundation Stage as your children move into the new curriculum of Key Stage 1.
We have been working hard to develop our learning environment and will continue this with your children's development and well-being at the heart of what we plan.
We are always available to speak to about any concerns or questions and we can only thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these strange times.
We can't wait to see you all soon.
Mr Dixon, Miss Clemence and Mrs Park.
This week in maths we have been working on counting in twos. We have used our interests to help us learn the objectives in maths. As a result, we have been playing cricket! We had three teams of three and each team had a scorer, batter and bowler. All the children in each time had a turn to do each thing. When the batter hit the ball they got 2 runs, when the bowler hit the stumps, two points were taken away! At the end of each batsmans turn, we counted the scores up. We found out how much quicker it is to count in twos rather than ones when using this scoring system. Why not try creating your own game at home where you count in twos, fives or tens.
In PE this term have been working on our balancing skills. Today we played a game called mirror mirror. The children worked in pairs to copy a position on the balance beam. We learnt that to be successful whilst balancing you need to focus on something still in front of you, have a wide base and stay still and steady. Here are a few photos from today!
