Welcome to Year 1, Dolphins class. The children seem very happy to be back at school,seeing their old friends and meeting their new teachers. I am pleased to say we have had an amazing start to the term.
The World Around MeThis half term our topic is The World Around Me. We have lots of exciting things planned including exploring our new learning environment both inside and out and making some maps. We will be looking at the ever changing weather and the change in the seasons. Within maths we are looking at numbers to 10 and how to apply them as well as talking about position (including right, left, clockwise and anti-clockwise as well as 1st 2nd 3rd etc). In English we are recapping Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonics before moving on to Phase 4 before the Winter break. We are looking at writing simple sentences in a range of topics including recipes, instructions, fact files and stories. We will be using our phonic knowledge and remembering our capital letters and full stops when writing as well as our finger spaces.

Work by Year 1
Here is some of the lovely work Year 1 have been doing so far. We have been looking at Autumn and what you can see. WE have been on Autumn hunts, made hedgehogs, squirrels and foxes out of clay, made some leaf people and written about the signs of Autumn. We read the story 'We're going on a leaf hunt' and retold it adding our own actions. WE also made new pages for the story and then went on our very own leaf hunt around our learning garden. Including going over the mountain, through the forest, around the waterfall and across the lake, in our very own homemade boat! After our leaf hunt we investigated which type of tree the leaves had fallen off and if all trees lost their leaves. We had so much fun learning about Autumn, we even managed to do some counting with our Autumn finds too!
