Here’s what we’ve been up to….

We are now experts at partitioning!

We have been writing our own versions of a Traditional Tale with actions. We have created our own characters and story maps. We enjoyed telling our stories to a partner.

We had a great day on World Book Day. Look at our wonderful costumes!

We had a very exciting pancake day, the children chose their own toppings for their pancake and then tasted their creation! Some were yummier than others.  We then joined Ash class for a pancake race.


In computing this week, we recorded our cookery programmes, describing how to make a sandwich.

In science we thought of questions about animals  and different ways to sort animals-


We have had a busy first week. We have been partitioning numbers in maths and impressed both Mrs Bolton and Mrs Simpson. The week before half term, we did some great measuring using non standard measures and cm’s.

We had a great time in both of our PE slots this week.


We wrote about our half term and have enjoyed thinking about ‘An Island Home’ where Katie Morag lives. Some of us loved helping set up the post office role play area and others enjoyed using the mud kitchen things with the sand.

We have had another busy week writing diary entries. I was very proud of the children as they were brilliant! We made some ‘city’ pictures linked to our topic (The Great Fire of London) in the style of the artist Paul Klee.

On Tuesday (5th Feb) we had a really exciting afternoon. We imagined what it was like  to be an eyewitness to  ‘The Great Fire of London’ – we made a human chain from the ‘River Thames’ to the fire and passed buckets of water. We saw how quickly real fire can spread!

Here is a link to the Year 1 Common Exception Words that the children are expected (NC expectation) to read and spell by the end of Year 1. We teach these words in class and do not expect you to test your child at home, they are there if you want to!
