Year 1

Year 1 – Being a Good Neighbour!

On Wednesday Year 1 presented their final assembly to Year 2, Reception and all their family members. The theme of this assembly was about being a good neighbour and that means not just to the people who live next door to us but to the whole world! We used the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke’s Gospel to explain that Jesus wants us all to love each other as we love ourselves.

You all had brilliant speaking voices, fantastic acting and the singing was amazing. I’m very proud of you all!

Year 1 – Sharing!

This week in Maths, Year 1 have been recapping on what they know about division. We began the week by revisiting the strategies we have already been taught which help us to divide. These included sharing and grouping. Today the children used concrete resources to help them visualise the sharing process which then allowed them to answer some very difficult division calculations!

Great work Year 1!

Year 1 – Toys

This week in History Year 1 have been looking at how toys from the past and present operate. They got the opportunity to play with a variety of toys and explored how they worked and what they were made from. Some toys needed batteries, others needed to be pushed along and some even controlled themselves!

Year 1- Being Sorry…

Today Year 1 planned and delivered their Collective Worship on ‘Being Sorry’. This was linked to our new topic in RE about Reconciliation. The children used the story of Zacchaeus from their lessons to share within their Collective Worship. Some of our leaders wrote their own prayers and asked the class to think about a time where they made a wrong choice and asked God for his forgiveness.


Year 1 – Needle and Thread!

Today was the day that Year 1 got to complete their hand puppet. They used their sewing skills to join their two pieces of felt together. The children used an over stitch which was very difficult but they managed with a little help and lots of perseverance!

Well done Year 1 and your puppets look fabulous!
