This week we have had another busy week in Year 1.
In English, we listened to the sounds of the city and tried to spot what we could hear! We then looked at how Beegu was feeling as she walked through the city!
In Maths, we looked at measurement and looked at how to solve problems!
In Science- we have started to investigate which material is the best to use to design a coat for Beegu.
This weeks attendance was 94 8% this week But we did win the class points! So we can have an extra treat next week! Well done everyone!
Have a great weekend! Have fun whatever your doing!
What a great effort made by all..you looked like real Rock Stars!
We have had an super day filled with lots of fun times table lessons!
We spent time with different KS1 teachers and have been counting in multiples of 2,5 and 10 – in lots of different, fun ways!
This week, we have been learning about halves and quarters.
We now know that 2 halves make a whole and that 4 halves make a whole too!
In English, we have read more of our story and we have thought carefully about what Beegu might be saying to the rabbits, in her own language!
In DT we designed our own sandwiches for Beegu, we chose our favourite sandwich filling!
Another fantastic week!

Have a great weekend!
We started our term off with a really exciting event!
On Monday morning, Year 1 had a special message about some unusual activity that the school CCTV had picked up on. We watched the footage…and then went down to the Dragon’s Den to investigate..
When we went down to the Dragon’s Den we came across a crashed spaceship!
We used the clues that we found to try and piece together what had happened!
We found -
- a broken spaceship
- moon rock
- smashed rocket boosters
- broken launch buttons and lots more items!
we came inside and discussed our findings. We looked closely at the objects we had found and thought about who might have been in the spaceship! We also talked about how and why the spaceship might have crashed!
(Photos of the ‘WOW Day’ are at the bottom of this post!)
This is what we will be learning about……
Can you guess what it might be?
Let me know what you think!
During the last week of term, we looked at:-
Maths- 2D shape, we looked at the shape names and some of their properties.
English- we completed our book ‘The Bog Baby’ and sent him back home to live in Bluebell Wood!
Science/ Reflection Task- we designed our own animal. We thought about what features we might include from other animals that we have learnt about, then decided if our animal was a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore!
Computing- we used the note books to create our own book about the Bog Baby!
Forest Schools- we went down to the Dragon’s Den to collect some elder. We then used a dowel to remove the middle of the piece of elder. We did this because it will make a snug place for a bug to stay! We then tied our pieces of elder together with our group to make a bug hotel. We then added our bug hotels to the school railings. -Photos to follow soon!
Our attendance this week was 98.6%

This week we have been very busy!
Maths- we have been learning what the signs + – and = mean. Then we looked at using the signs in number sentences, e.g. 5 + 4= and 10 – 8 = then we looked at some tricky numbers looking at teen numbers e.g. 13 + 3 = and 19 – 6 = . Then some of us started to look at word problems.
English- we have looked more at our class text, ‘The Bog Baby’. Then we retold the story orally and created a story map! Then we looked at how the girls felt when they had to let the bog baby go. As part of our learning, we also looked at time adverbials. We learnt what a time adverbial is and what it does to our writing. We then added time adverbials to our story maps. We then went on to create sentences that used time adverbials!
Science- we created a fact file using scientific vocabulary about an animal of our choice!
Art- we looked at Austin’s Butterfly to remind us of the importance of creating another draft and created a final line drawing. We were amazed with our creations!
