Year 1 2018-2019

Term 1

Come fly with me!

Welcome to year 1.


In term 1, we will be starting our exciting learning journey finding out about superheroes and villains!

We will also be looking at a real life superhero. The superhero we will be focusing on is Florence Nightingale.

We will be looking at healthy living and what makes a good balanced diet (which is extremely important for a superhero or villain). 


We will be focusing on a book called Supertato- Run, Veggies, Run! by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. 


The whole of year 1 will be having PE on Wednesday's and Friday's.


We've had an amazing first week back at school!

We have all settled in well and are looking forward to all of the new exciting things we are going to learn.


We had a Superhero Impact day where we moved to different classrooms to carry out different superhero activities.

We made magical potions that when used outside gave us special powers such as super speed and super strength. We had lots of fun making them. The magic trick was to put our finger into the potion in order for it to work.

We also made masks and capes to help us to look like real superheroes. We had to carefully think about what colours we wanted to use and what symbols we wanted for our logo, so that everyone could recognise who we were.

We learned how to navigate Beebots around a map to help save all the people in need. We had to try and find the quickest route to the danger!

We had a super time learning about Florence Nightingale in our workshop. We got to dress up as soldiers and nurses. We smelt lots of different herbs and soap and we also got to hold lots of different artefacts.

We learnt lots of different facts and one of our favourite ones were that she was known as the Lady of the Lamp.

Class 5 had a super time learning about Florence Nightingale and spending the day being super heroes!

Class 6 had a super time learning about Florence Nightingale and spending the day being super heroes!

During Maths we have been learning about money.

We have learnt about the different coins we have and we have used them to pay for totals. 

We have been looking at the work of Matisse and recreating our own art pieces using his collaging method.

This term in Class 7 we have been learning about money, using number lines and retelling the story of Supertato using Pie Corbett.

Class 5 built a stable structure for Supertato and Incy Independent! We used a variety of building materials and had to make sure it had high walls so they could hide from Evil Pea.

Class 6 have been learning about money. They played shops. They had to find the correct amount of money to pay for their items in the shop.

We have been learning how to manipulate clay. We have created a superhero friend for Supertato.

We have been learning how to tell the time. We have learnt how to read and make o'clock and half past times. 

Class 5 have been learning all about time. We read o'clock and half past times, and then moved onto sequencing our day. We found out that we wake up around 7 o'clock in the morning, go to school at almost 9 o'clock, and come home at around 3 o'clock. We also learnt that there are morning and evening o'clock times, which was a bit tricky!

In Class 7 we have been learning how to tell the time to o'clock and ordering our day.

Class 6 have done a variety of maths activities over the term including finding 1 more or less, partitioning numbers into tens and ones, money, time, addition and subtraction. They have worked very hard.
