Please see below for Year 1 information.
Autumn Term 2018
Year One have settled into their new class very well and we are so impressed with how grown-up they are and how hard they work in their lessons. They started the first half term learning about lighthouses, they have read 'The Lighthouse keeper's Lunch' and did some great writing about Mr Grinling the lighthouse keeper. They have made some brilliant lighthouse models and used chalks to create lighthouse pictures. As part of their work about lighthouses they have also enjoyed finding out about Grace Darling who lived over two hundred years ago. In science Year one have been finding about the senses , they have made touch pictures, listened carefully to all the sounds all around our school and participated in a smelling test ! Every week Year One go outside for an Outdoor Learning lesson and for the first half term these lessons have had a maths focus. They have collected and measured different sized sticks, completed a maths trail and collected leaves to size order them and learn about ordinal numbers.
This half term we are looking forward to learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot and reading the Katie Morag stories and finding out about life on The Isle of Struay . Year One are also very excited about starting their swimming lessons at Wigston swimming Pool on November 5th.
Some children in Year One have already achieved their 50 reading sticker ! Well done !
