Welcome to Year 1
This is the page for Class 3 and 4. You will be able to find out about our exciting learning experiences in school each week and see photos of us having fun. We'll also post some links to learning resources we've used in school so you can continue learning at home! Make sure you also visit the Airhead section where you will find different online resources to help with your learning.
Emmet the Guide Dog
Week beginning 8.10.2018
The children had a lovely treat this week when Emmet the Guide Dog came to visit class 3 and 4. They asked some very perceptive questions of his owner, about the life of a person who is partially sighted. This experience should prove very useful when the children learn about their Super Senses after half term. Other activities this week have included developing fine motor skills, finishing clay animals, writing sentences with verbs and learning how to make 10 and 20. See this link for a fun YouTube song about number bonds to 10. This week please help become confident in recalling number partners that make 10 or 20.
Week beginning 1.10.18
This week we have had great fun making animal models from clay, looking carefully at the structure of the animals we were making. I'm sure you'll agree from the photos that the children have done at a great job. Making these models has reinforced learning in other areas of the curriculum. We have also used adjectives to describe animals and practised writing letters c, a and d, amongst other things!
Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Week beginning 17.09.18
Year 1 visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park this week and enjoyed finding out about the animals on site. We saw wallabies, brown bears, squirrel monkeys, polar bears and meerkats. The education staff on site helped us to think about grouping animals in different ways - reptiles, mammals, birds and insects.
