Class 1L

Miss O’Connor is the class teacher. Mrs Simpson teaches the class on a Thursday morning. Mrs Garnett supports in Year 1 and will sometimes take out small groups to work.

The topic in year 1 this term is Ourselves.

In Literacy we have described our features and written about our likes and dislikes. We have written instructions and made binoculars. We also wrote instructions on making fruit smoothies which we enjoyed tasting.

For Raold Dahl day we watched the story of the Big Friendly Giant: we made dream jars and wrote about what adventures we would have if we were invisible for a day.

In mathematics we are learning to count, write and recognise numbers from 0 -100. We have been learning our number bonds to 10 and doubling numbers. We have also looked at 2D shapes looking for them in the school environment. We are now looking at British coins and counting them.

In science we have used our senses to look at, smell, feel and taste the fruit in our smoothies.

In RE we have talked about Harvest and looked at different fruit and vegetables. We helped to make a vegetable soup which we all enjoyed tasting.

In History we are studying the Great Fire of London and in Geography we are learning about the countries which make up the British Isles.

As well as PE we keep fit by running around the school playground each morning – at the moment we are running 3 laps but are steadily increasing the distance we run.

Below are some photographs from the activities we have been doing.

We all dressed up for World Book Day and enjoyed various activities during the day including the Reading Cafe. Below are photographs of our costumes – can you guess who we are ?

For Mothers day we made cards and baked heart shaped biscuits. Below are some of the photographs of us making our biscuits.

As part of Science week and our topic work on Africa we had a visit from Guy with his mini beasts. Most of us were brave and touched our creepy and exotic visitors. Below are photographs to show how brave we were.

We have looked at African jewellery – this is what we have made
