Autumn 2

Week beginning December 17th

Another busy week for Year One! Our party on Tuesday was great fun and the children looked great in their party clothes. We have still been working hard but everything has had a Christmas theme this week.

I hope you all have a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year and we will see you all back at school on Monday January 7th.

Week beginning December 10th

What a busy week! Thank you all for coming to see our nativity. The children really enjoyed performing for you and I'm sure you'll agree that they were fantastic. Our Christmas craft afternoon was a huge success too and it was lovely to see so many of you. I had glitter in my eyebrows and the classroom is sparkling! frown

This week we are reading Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. We read the story and then thought of adjectives to describe the witch. We also sang the song for the story from YouTube.

This week we have continued our work on place value with greater than, less than and equal to. The children are now really confident comparing numbers and using the correct inequality symbol to record which is greater than etc.

On Friday Christmas arrived and the children had great fun dressing the Christmas tree.

This week we performed an oral retell of Winnie the Witch for Mr Garrod. We read the story and then made up our own actions for key words such as Winnie (triangle hat with hands) and Wilbur (make cats ears with hands).

We then wrote a character description of Winnie, drew a story map and then managed to write a retell the story in our own words.
In Maths we have been learning to read and write numbers as words. 

In RE we have completed a two week topic on Hanukkah and in History we have been learning about the significance of poppies and Remembrance Day.
