Year 1

Welcome to Term 2

Reading in the mornings– In Key Stage 1 this happens on a Tuesday and Thursday. From 8.45-8.55 parents and carers are encouraged to come into class and read with their Year 1 child. If children are not able to read to a parent or carer they must sit on the carpet and complete the morning activity.

On Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s please say goodbye to your child at the door as their morning activity will begin straight away.

Reading Books– If your child needs to change their reading book please do this on a Tuesday and Thursday. If you’re not able to do this then please make Mrs Thomas or Mrs Roberts aware and they will make sure this happens.

PE– This will happen on a Tuesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon.

This term our Enquiry is ‘ Pride in Place – What do we like about Sea Mills?’

Before starting this enquiry, we created questions that  children in Year 1 would like to know more about.

  • What did Sea Mills used to look like?
  • What did our School used to look like?
  • What places are around Sea Mills?

Enquiry – ‘Party Planners– Can party food be healthy?’

This term our Enquiry is ‘ Party Planners– Can party food be healthy?’ Before starting this enquiry we created questions that  children in Year 1 would like to know more about.

  • Are cakes and sweets healthy?
  • Why is fruit healthy?
  • What party games could you play that would make you run around?

During Enquiry this term, we will be exploring what a healthy and well balanced diet is made up of.  We will be using this information to design a healthy meal. We will also be learning about the parts of the body, as well as hygiene.

All this learning will be aimed towards the end of term where Year 1 & 2 will have a healthy food party.  Where families are welcome to join us.

Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
