Welcome to Year 1
'This half term Year 1 have been applying their mathematical knowledge whilst baking bread rolls and banana muffins.'
Hello and welcome to Year 1,
The children have settled well into their new class allowing teaching and learning to begin immediately.
Our action for Year 1 is to continue to make our hands strong and ready for writing to develop fine motor movement and dexterity, this helps our letter our formation and handwriting. With this in mind, it is important that our learning continues to be active and with hands on learning in the classroom and in our new Year 1 Learning Garden.
We continue to link sounds to letters in order to write independently, we remember to use our robot hands and phoneme fingers when segmenting and blending words. It is also very important to keep on using the Jolly Phonics actions to help us to absorb and apply the phonemes, digraphs ( 2 letters 1 sound) and trigraphs ( 3 letters 1 sound) when we are reading and writing.
In year 1 we have used the British Value of democracy to choose two members of the school council. The rule of law is promoted through our daily routines and activities such as tidy up time. We have a mutual respect for each other and celebrate our differences, we are always ready, respectful and safe !
Our Learning Powers help us to be resilient, reflective, resourceful and to take risks when we are learning!
