Your child may where a plain white t-shirt, black shorts or black leggings/jogging bottoms. They should wear their school jumper/cardigan – no other sports top. They can wear trainers or plimsoles.

 

As part of our safer travel to school initiative next week from the Monday 27th September until the Friday 1st of October we are taking part in the national Bike to school week. The aim of this is to improve the air quality around the school and make it safer for children. You can cycle – (please wear a cycle helmet. Bikes can be safely stored at the top of the KS2 entrance by the cycle shed.), scoot or walk. We would like for you to avoid driving down Fellowes Road and to park away from the school and walk in with your children. Please see the flyer that was sent via email for more information.

Please ensure that your child is reading everyday (this can be a school book, home book, magazine, comic or from the online Oxford Owl website) and recording their reading in their diary daily. The more exposure to the written word the better their writing becomes. They can read any book, it doesn’t always have to be a school given book. We want your child/children to develop a love of books and enjoy reading for pleasure. Try to make time to share a book together as part of your evening routine. Snuggle up in bed or on the sofa, if you have a great place to read then why not send a photo via the class email to show your child reading in their favourite place!

Sports Day Wednesday 7th July. Children to come to school wearing a PE kit. 

 

Dear Parents and Carers, 

As you know, this week we are holding sports day events for all the pupils.  This year, these are happening within bubbles rather than it being a whole school event. 

I know that many of you are disappointed that you are not invited to attend.  I need to reiterate that we are following Government advice and the guidance from the Department of Education about maintaining social distancing and limiting people onto school premises to help keep people safe.  As you know, at the moment, there is a great deal of speculation in the press about what schools can and can’t do, but I must stress, at this stage no specific guidance about relaxing measures has been given to schools. 

I realise that it is frustrating to see thousands of spectators at football events and at Wimbledon tennis, and therefore find it difficult to know why the school can’t invite hundreds of parents onto the premises.  However, it would be irresponsible of the school and the Trust if we were to go against government guidance. 

Thank you for your cooperation and support with this matter. 

Yours faithfully,  

Ms Bretherick

Blooming Marvellous

This week we started our new topic 'Blooming Marvellous'. We thought about what we know about plants and what we would like to find out. We then went on a plant hunt around our outside area and spotted lots of wild plants. This helped us to identify and label a picture of a plant. We learnt that evergreen trees stay green throughout the year and their leaves are usually waxy, and deciduous trees have leaves that change colour and usually lose their leaves in winter. 

 

In maths we started learning about quarters. We practically cut objects into 4 equal parts and by the end of the week we understood how to split counters into 4 equal groups. 

 

In music this half term the focus is music from around the world. This week the children looked at traditional and popular music from Asia.

We talked about how instructions are used for recipes, games, how to make things, and in safety procedures. Then we followed instructions to make a seaside in a bottle and then wrote our own instructions. 

 

In maths we shared objects into 2 and 5 equal groups.  The children enjoyed exploring sharing through a fairytale party.

This week in topic we learnt about natural (would be here without people, example a tree) and man-made (built by people, example a house) features. We used this knowledge to sort features of Carshalton and discussed why they were natural or man-made. This then helped us to compare Brighton and Carshalton. The children did a brilliant job of completing this at home due to our remote learning this week. Please check out our gallery section.

 

In maths the children have been learning about repeated addition. We used our knowledge of grouping and counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s to write repeated addition number sentences e.g. 10+10+10+10.

I am delighted to inform you that over the Easter holidays we have installed 20 bicycle storage hoops up on the top of the grass area by the existing covered bicycle Storage just through the KS2 gate. This was possible due to receiving £500 pounds funding from TFL to promote cycling to school.

If your child wishes to cycle to school, then they may park their bicycle in this area only, no bicycles are to be taken down to classrooms. Please ensure your child wears a cycle helmet and has a lock to secure their bike whilst on school premises, as the school accepts no liability for loss or damage to personal property brought onto school property.

Thank you

This week in topic we have been looking at information texts. We gathered lots of facts about tigers and rhinos and then planned and wrote our own information text. The children did very well to write in a formal tone.

 

In maths the children have been measuring in standard units of measurement such as a ruler and in non-standard units of measurement such as hands. 

 

In music we explored the different elements that make up a song.

 

Next Week's Learning 08.03.21

We are excited to be back in school starting Monday 8th March. 

In topic we will be looking at the 7 continents again and building our knowledge to learn about the 5 oceans. We will learn about hot and cold parts of the world and explore where animals live. 

 

In maths we are moving on to weight. We will be exploring objects to see what is heavier and use the language, heavy, light, heavier and lighter.

This Carnival of the Animals

We had a great start to our new topic, The Carnival of the Animals. We completed our KWL and learnt about different species and classified animals by their diet. We know that a carnivore eats only meat, a herbivore eats only plants or vegetables, and an omnivore eats both meat and vegetables. 

 

In maths we learnt about finding the difference, first we practically found objects and then we moved on to solving problems. 

 

In music we watched a video, Zin! Zin! Zin! We counted how many different instruments there were and then drew our favourite. 

 

 

Next Week's Learning 01.03.21

In topic we are looking at information texts. We will be highlighting the features and then gathering evidence to create our own information text about an animal.

 

In maths we will be measuring the length and height of objects.

This Week’s Learning- wb 08.02.21

Topic: Castles and Dragons

We enjoyed our last week learning about castles and dragons. We looked at the story The Egg by M.P. Robertson. We made a prediction by looking at the cover and listened to the story to compare our thoughts. We then planned and wrote our own stories about dragons. The children did a fabulous job and are able to join their ideas and use a range of adjectives to make their stories interesting. In RE we learnt about Krishna. He is a very popular god in Hinduism, and we made him a crown. Check these out in the gallery section.

 

In maths, we looked at taking away 1 and taking away 10. 

 

In music, we learnt the Wiggle Jiggle song from Sing Up. 

 

Next Week's Learning 22.02.21

After half term we will start our new topic, The Carnival of the Animals

This is an exciting topic where we learn all about the different types of animals and look at new language, carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

This Week’s Learning- wb 01.02.21

Topic: Castles and Dragons

 

We had such a great week!

We received a message from Humpty Dumpty asking for us to find a suitable material for him to land on. The children made predictions and guessed what materials an egg could safely land on. Due to Covid-19 Miss Webster carried out the experiment at home. The children enjoyed watching to see if their predictions were correct. Check out the amazing write ups in the Gallery section. 

In our design and technology lessons we designed and made a castle. We completed process diaries to guide us step by step with our products. These look brilliant!

 

In maths, we looked at finding 10 less than any number and we know when taking away 10, the ones stay the same. 

 

In music, we explored how some materials make short sharp sounds and some materials make long high pich sounds.

 

 

Next Week's Learning 08.02.21

Next week is our last week of Castles and Dragons. We will be looking at the book The Egg by M. P. Robertson. The children will make a prediction based on the cover of the book and then plan and write their own versions of the story.

 

In maths, we will continue our number and place value unit.

This Week’s Learning- wb 25.01.21

Topic: Castles and Dragons

 

This week, in topic we located castles on a map of the United Kingdom. We used our knowledge we learnt in our previous topic of the countries and the capital cities and applied it to castle descriptions to place them correctly on a map. We then looked at the story, 'The Paper Bag Princess' by Robert Munsch. After listening to the story carefully, we retold the story by ordering pictures and thinking of adjectives to describe the characters. At the end of the week, we planned and wrote character descriptions for the dragon. The children did incredibly well.

 

In maths, we looked at adding 10 more to numbers. We started by just adding 10 to multiples of ten and progressed to solving problems. 

 

In music, we had a fun lesson with Miss Anderson and then wrote an evaluation of a piece of music.

 

Next Week's Learning 01.02.21

Next week, we will be exploring different materials. We received an important letter from Humpty Dumpty and will be helping him to find a suitable material to stop him breaking.  

 

In maths, we will be looking at 10 less than a number.

Welcome to Year 1 - 4.09.2020

Welcome to Year 1. I hope you have had a great summer and are looking forward to seeing all your friends and learning new topics. 

 

Please remember your drop off time is between 8.45 and 8.55 at the Key Stage 1, Rushy Meadow gate. Pick up is at 3.20pm from your child’s classroom. 

 

Your child may bring their packed lunch in hard, plastic, wipeable lunch box (clearly named), a named water bottle and a small school bag to carry their reading book and reading diary.  

 

Please make sure all your child’s uniform is named. 

 

P.E is on Monday and Wednesday for Robin Class and Wednesday and Thursday for Owls. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their school P.E kit. Please remove earrings in the morning and tie back long hair.

 

Due to the pandemic your child will be given one reading book per week. They will be given a new book on a Monday and return it to school on a Friday – this gives us the weekend as the 72 hours quarantine to ensure books stay clean. 

Please ensure your child reads daily and you record their reading in their reading diary. We will be hearing your child read on a weekly basis and will move them up the reading scheme as they learn new sounds. If you would like to find more books to share you can use the Oxford Owl reading scheme online. 

 

The Topic for this half term is Amazing Me! Please bring in a photo of your child as a baby for our display.  

 

We look forward to seeing you next week. Thank you for your continued support. 

The Year 1 Team.
