Welcome to the Year One page. Our team is Miss Samra, Miss Armstrong, Miss Evans, Mrs Ore. If your child is in Year One, please familiarise yourself with this page so you can stay up to date with all the amazing learning taking place in Class 3 and Class 4.

 

Water Bottles -  Children are required to bring a water bottle each day.  Your child will have access to their bottle during the session in order to keep hydrated.  

 

Please ensure your child's clothing is clearly labelled to avoid loss or confusion. 

 

PE

Class 4 - Thursday AM  

 

Your child will need to have a PE kit in school on those days. As the weather is still cold, your child will need to have a warmer, outdoor kit. This includes trainers suitable for outdoor PE. Earrings must be removed.

Children's Mental Health Week 2021

 

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and the theme this year is ‘Express Yourself. Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good. For Children's Mental Health Week 2021 we will be encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.

7.12.2020

This week in English we wrote a set of instructions on how to make Gruffalo Crumble.

We remembered to use our time words and bossy verbs, to make our instructions very descriptive. 

 

​​​​​​

2.12.2020

This week in Science we went outside and collected leaves. We found leaves that had fallen from deciduous trees. We then used these leaves to draw around and measure! We used our rulers and carefully measured them in centimetres. 

Week 4 23.11.20

Paper Plate Gruffalo

This week we had lots of fun creating a paper plate Gruffalo! To make our paper plate Gruffalo we followed a set of instructions, it was super fun and a great way of to start our new topic; writing instructions. 

Week 3 16.11.20

 

 Over the weekend, the school had some unexpected visitors!

 

We found evidence and sent it to the laboratory to be tested but they have sent us some pictures of the evidence they found.

 

 

Based on the evidence we decided that it must be the Gruffalo!

 

     

 

 

 

 

Week 2  9.11.20

Maths: representing numbers using objects

 

 

This week we have learnt how to represent numbers using objects. Our children worked super hard and although a difficult concept we cracked it! Check out a great example below.

 

          

 

 

 

Week 1 2.11.20

 
   
 
   

​​​​​​

Week 1 - One School One Book

This week we started in our new classes in Year 1. Our learning this week has been based around the story "The Tin Forest". Each year group was asked to complete a range of activities based on the story and then to create a class display. The children loved doing this and enjoyed reading the story. Have a look below at what we created!

 

 

Week 2 14.9.2020

This week we started our lessons! In Maths we practised our number formation and in DIRT we practised writing our letters. We got to write in our new books and this was very exciting. We have used this opportunity this week to practise writing the long and short date. We are getting super speedy with this now!
 

Week 3 21.9.2020

 

This week we have been doing some work on our number bonds to 5. We met Fred 5 the ladybird who helped us to understand how to make different combinations to 5. We used our Maths books to journal, and had a go at making bonds to 5 by using ladybird spots. 

                                                           Week 4      28.9.20

Week 5 - 5.10.2020 

 

This week we started to learn about Black History Month. We learnt about the story of Rosa Parks and her fight for equality. We discussed as a class what we would have done in her position, and how difficult it must have been to be as brave as she was. We then journalled some facts we had learnt about Rosa. 

Important Message

Please return all school reading books to the labelled boxes by the office before the Summer holiday. Thank you.

Lincoln's VE Day Message

Still image for this video

Thursday 7th May 2020

Dame Vera Lynn - We'll meet again

This song is one of the most famous of the Second World War era, and resonated with soldiers going off to fight as well as their families and sweethearts.
When the Queen ended her televised address on April 5 by reassuring isolated viewers that “we will meet again”, it was a powerful reminder of the song, made famous by Vera Lynn, that became a symbol of hope through another national crisis.

Learn the lyrics below and have a sing a long! You could even ask an adult to film it.
