Emma Brameld - Wednesday, January 10, 2018

What a busy term we had in year 1 during the lead up to Christmas. First of all we would like to thank all families who attended the Christmas Nativity, the children love to see so many smiley faces and they really do value your continued support.

During the autumn term we have really enjoyed writing letters and post cards to our favourite authors, famous celebrities and to our family and friends.

We have spent a lot of time reading and learning about different books written by the famous author Julie Donaldson. One of our favourite stories that she has written is the Gruffalo. We read the story and added actions before writing our own Gruffalo stories. We used interesting adjectives to describe the Gruffalo and the different story characters.

We used a variety of different materials and media to create our very own Gruffalo masks and we even had a visit from the Gruffalo himself! He really wasn’t that scary!

 This term we will be blasting off into Space! We are very excited to learn all about the different planets in our Solar System and learn all about the lives of astronauts out in space. We will spend time researching facts about the planets and learn songs and rhymes to help us remember the order of the planets from the sun.

We have an exciting visit from Polestar Planetarium on Monday 29th January where the children will get to experience what it is like out in space. We are very excited!

In maths we will continue to practise reading and writing numbers up to 100. We will be learning how to partition numbers and understand the value that each digit holds. We will be adding and subtracting numbers up to 100 and learning all about 2D and 3D shapes.
