Autumn Term 2020

In year 1 throughout Autumn 1 we did some fantastic learning all about animals. We were learning new facts and practicing writing about animals from dinosaurs to mice. We started to group the animals and use our observational skills. We also spent lots of time practicing our numbers, counting and measuring in different ways. As well as all of this, we have had lots of fun doing all things phonics! Learning has been fun and the whole class are settling into year 1 very nicely.

Year 1's Monster Mode Board 

Each week the children practise their learning at home.

This home learning is celebrated on our Monster Mode Board! 

Look at all of our fantastic home learning!


Autumn 2

Reading. In our class we got into a really great habit of reading independently, with an adult and with our friends. We enjoyed it and included it into our daily routine.


4D room. We had a great morning in the amazing 4D room to inspire us to use exciting words in our writing. It was great to discuss our ideas together before writing in our work.


Science. We had a fun half term of science learning about different materials. It finished with an exciting challenge to work together to make a ‘shelter’ to try and keep Gerry the Giraffe dry. 


Christmas excitement. We made the most of the Christmas build up and got so excited in year 1. One of our favourite activities was our huge phonics snowball fight. We had to throw the snowballs and then read as many words as we could with our friends. Lots of fun in our learning!
