Week 3

It has been a very wet week at school this week but we haven't let that stop all our hard work!


This week in English we have been learning all about adjectives and we used lots of different adjectives to describe the Aliens in our class text 'Aliens love underpants'.


In Math's we have been concentrating on careful counting and making sure we count one object at a time and then matching numbers to the correct number of objects.


The children have learnt all about the United Kingdom in Geography, natural observational drawing in Art and Yoga in PE.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend and we shall see you next week!

Week 2


It has been another busy week in Year 1.


We continued our writing topic about 'Aliens love underpants' and this week we have learnt all about space linking to the topic and created wanted posters to catch the aliens so they stop stealing underpants!


In maths this week we have been concentrating on numbers to 10, we ordered them, wrote them and looked at how many different ways we could make numbers to 10.


In topic we really enjoyed learning about a famous artist called Rhiannon Roberts and we created some colorful dogs in the style of Rhiannon's work. We also had great fun on the computers learning how to use the space bar, backspace and how to draw on paint.


Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!


Hello Year 1,


I am Miss Avison and I am covering Ms Thompson-Thorpe for the first few weeks at school. I am really looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you all back. Miss Benson and I have been busy planning lots of fun and exciting activities for your first week back.


Some of you may feel a little nervous to come back to school and because I am new so am I, however together we will all settle in fast and have a great start to the term.


See you in the morning!


Miss Avison and Mrs Hughes


Week 1

We have had a very busy first week back, all the children have settled in well and I have been really impressed with how excited they are to learn!


In phonics this week we have been recapping our sounds, in writing we read the story 'Aliens love underpants' and we made our own underpants and ordered the story using time conjunctions.


In maths we did some super counting and looked at 2D and 3D shapes sorting them into the correct hooler hoop. We then ended our week with golden time creating some lovely art work using clay.


Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Monday!


Miss Avison

Corrinthian told me all the 2D shapes, he created a rocket ship!

Tucker sorted the 2D shapes and 3D shapes!

Lilly Mae had a lovely time using the clay!
