Notices

 

P.E during the wb: 17th July  

There will be no P.E days for all children in Year 1 during the last week of school.

 

Book Bags and Year 1 Books

Book bags will go home for the last time this academic year on Friday 14th July. Please could they come back in on Monday 17th July with any borrowed books that are at home. 

We will also put in any English or Maths books that have been completed this year for you to keep. 

 

Morning drop-off expectations

Please ensure that you say goodbye to your child before they come in to the classroom in the morning. We are trying to foster the children's growing independence so they are expected to enter the classroom by themselves, hang up their coat and place their snack and drink in the appropriate places before beginning their soft-start activity.

 

Year 1 Parent Reading Volunteers

We would really appreciate it if any parents are able to volunteer to read with Year 1 children on Monday, Wednesday or Friday afternoons. Please see your child's class teacher or Miss Whaley if you are interested.

 

Home Learning Showcase (13.7.17)

Year 1 classes will be showing of their creative home learning to all parents on Thursday 13th July. We will be starting at 3.15pm.

Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.

Current Learning

We have had a very special week in Year 1! The highlight of it was our tip to the Ealing Gurdwara. We learnt about their holy book, their gurus and more interesting things. We also had the chance to have Indian lunch! The children were very excited especially because they already knew a lot of information about the Sikh religion. This is because one of the parents was invited to come in and talk to us about this religion. The children sat so calmly and were extremely interested in this.

 

In English this week, we have been editing our first draft and we are now just finishing off our final draft, which is an instructional text about ‘How to grow vegetables and make soup’. Our next focus is about writing an information leaflet. Our leaflet is going to be about the Beatles, which is our History Topic. Children have already listened to a few of their songs and now they will start doing some research about them.

 

In Maths we have been improving our measuring skills. We spent our first lesson measuring the length of lines with different orientations. Then, we learnt about capacity and volume. The children loved measuring the volume of the water using different measuring cups. Finally we moved on to weight and used the scales do weigh different objects in class.

 

We have also had very exciting lesson in science. We had the chance to go out in the playground and sketch a tree and a flower after he had observed it carefully. After that we learnt about the different parts of a tree and a flower and labelled them in our books.
