Welcome to 1W - Miss Woods and Mrs Lekal
We are delighted to welcome you to our class page and tell you a little about what we have been learning in 1W!
The children have settled in nicely to year 1 life.
In Maths we are building our basic skills, looking at numbers and practising our counting. We have looked for patterns on the 100 number square and the children are becoming really good at counting both forwards and backwards to help us add and take away.
We've had a fantastic half term full of fun and celebrations. In R.E the children have learnt about the festivals of Diwali and Hanukkah by making cards and decorations. The children especially enjoyed making their own diva lamps to celebrate Diwali.
In History we learnt why bonfire night is celebrated and we received a visit from Guy Fawkes!
And of course, the children have loved our Christmas celebrations in school. There was some amazing dancing at our Christmas party, an exciting Santa dash, and even a visit from Father Christmas!
The children have been working very hard this half term. In English we have been learning dictionary skills and looking at alphabetical order as well as learning how to write instructions. We enjoyed dancing along to this alphabet song!
In Maths we have continued to work on using a range of methods to add and subtract. We are absolute super stars at recalling our addition and subtraction facts to 10 and 20.
We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break and we wish you a very happy new year.
We will be updating this page soon to keep you informed of all the exciting learning we do in year 1!
Our week in year 1:
We try to read with all the children on either Monday or Tuesday. The bookbags are kept in school overnight on Monday evenings.
We have P.E with our school sports coaches on Mondays. children require a full P.E. kit which is sent home at the end of each half term.
On Tuesday we will send home a new reading book for you to read and enjoy with your child at home.
We have library on a Wednesday where the children can choose their own book and take it home for a week. Please ensure your child's book is returned on the following Wednesday so they are able to choose a new book.
On Thursday we have a praise assembly to celebrate the children's achievements.
On Friday Learning together sheets are sent home with lots of information on what we have been up to in class during our week. There are also some fun activities for you to try at home with your child if you wish.
