Year 1

Welcome to Year 1! 

Welcome back to Term 2! I hope you all had a restful half term and are ready for a busy and fun few weeks. Please continue to encourage your child to come into school independently and follow the distancing measures in the mornings. As Athletes we will continue to have PE every Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning so please remember your kits! Mrs Roberts will teach Year 1 every  Thursday Morning whilst I have planning time. Many thanks for your continued support. I am looking forward to speaking with you all at our upcoming virtual parents evenings. Miss Bathgate

Term 2

Christmas Sponsored Walk

Year 1 enjoyed a Christmas sponsored walk. They managed to walk around the playground lots of times and didn’t give up! As a treat, they enjoyed some hot chocolate afterwards. Well done everyone for persevering!

Rugby and Circus Skills

Year 1 had lots of fun as Athletes. We followed instructions by a rugby coach and learnt circus balancing skills. The target was to improve our self esteem!

Exciting times ahead!

It is fantastic to be back! This term, we are learning all about Autumn. We enjoyed going on a scavenger hunt around our bubble zone to find signs of this new season. We have also enjoyed learning about Bonfire night and using oil pastels as Artists to make our own Firework pictures. We are looking forward to the next few weeks of learning.

Anti-bullying Week

Year 1 engaged in an afternoon of activities about anti bullying week. We drew pictures of what bullying could look like and how to solve problems. We then all made a brick to create our ‘Year 1 wall of kindness.’

Road Safety Week

To celebrate road safety week, we learnt all about how to make sure we cross the road safely.
Miss Bathgate taught us a catchy phrase ‘Stop, Look, Listen and Cross!’ We learnt a song about road safety and acted this out.

We then drew a poster of ourselves with a trusted grown up crossing the road safely and shared this with our learning partner.

Term 1

Year 1 have settled into their new classroom fantastically. Please take a look at all of the learning they have been doing!
