Year 1 2019-2020

The children had a fabulous time inside the space dome, learning about travelling in space and the first moon landings. It was the perfect introduction to our 'Moon Zoom' topic.

The children enjoyed investigating the crashed alien spaceship that appeared on our school field.

The children were captivated by the performance from the Pearl of Africa choir.

Welcome back to our new half term.

Welcome back to school for the second half of our autumn term. I hope you all enjoyed your half term break. 

This half term our creative curriculum topic will be 'Moon Zoom'. During the work we do on this topic we will be looking at the properties of everyday materials in science, the lives of significant individuals and changes that have occurred within our lifetimes in history and using basic geographical vocabulary to identify features on Earth from satellite images. The children will gain an insight into what life would be like on the moon and living inside a space craft through the presentation being delivered inside the science dome to start off our topic. We will then continue to capture the children's imaginations and creativity by exploring a crashed alien space craft site and in our space craft role play area inside the classroom.

We will also be learning about the story of creation in our Religious Education lessons and making use of lots of creative writing opportunities linked to our Moon Zoom theme. In maths we will be covering the main topics of sequencing and sorting, fractions, capacity, money and time. We will continue to have PE lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. 

I am looking forward to another successful half term with the children where we can enjoy our learning through lots of hands on a creative activities. 

Kind regards, 

Mrs J. Chidgey

Welcome Back - September 2019

Welcome back after the summer and welcome to Year 1. I hope you and your children have had a lovely six week break.

The children have made a super start to Year 1 this week and are becoming familiar with the rules, routines and expectations of their new classroom. Our first topic for our creative learning for this year is 'The Enchanted Woodland'. I have attached a summary sheet for the topic to give you an overview of the curriculum content that will be covered by the topic and a copy of the 'Pick and Mix' optional homework ideas that you and your child could choose to complete over the half term. I have also attached a copy of the welcome letter which will give you some information about the timetable and expectations for the Year. 

I am looking forward to a great year with the children in /year 1 full of fun, smiles and learning. If you have any questions or queries throughout the year then please contact me and I will be happy to help.
