What an exciting week we have had from new arrivals at the start of the week to a letter off the Queen of England at the end of the week. Even the Queen makes mistakes, she addressed it to Year 2 instead of Year 1. Maybe she knows that you are Year 2 ready.

This week we went to the Post Office to post postcards to Queen Elizabeth to tell her all about Guernsey and Mark 'The Beast' Labbett to find out if he is the REAL Lonely Beast. We had the opportunity to be involved preparing the mail to be posted to England. We aren't sure who had more fun...us or the adults!

All the children are looking so much taller and older since they have returned after the Easter Break. This term our topic is Journeys. Today a lot of postcards arrived at school. We have been reading them and have identified that there is a Lonely Beast in every country, and this was confirmed when we began to look at the text, 'The Lonely Beast'. We enjoyed looking at google maps, atlases and using a globe to identify where these different countries are. We even had a go at making a map of Guernsey with plasticine.

We had an interesting visit from the Guernsey Sailing Trust. The children were surprised to find a sailing boat in the hall!!

Numeracy (Spring 2)

This half term we have been working hard doing addition and subtraction.  We have been identifying missing numbers and number problems.

Numeracy

 

In Numeracy this week we have been creating bar models when adding and subtracting.  Next week we will be measuring out ingredients, and learning about 2D and 3D shapes.

Last week we came into school to discover a crime scene in one of the Year 1 classrooms. We put together a list of evidence from the clues we had and shared them with the police this week. We are now on the look out for a girl called Goldilocks. If you see her please let Year 1 know!

Two little elves have arrived in Year 1 at the start of December. They have been very mischievous!

We enjoyed our last art club session for this term. Today we did some Christmas crafts.

This week we went to the library for a Christmas story and craft session. Some of us couldn't stop giggling at the stories!

Numeracy

 

Last week in Year 1 we were learning to tell the time (o'clock) and sequencing the days of the week.  This week we are doing addition and subtraction, and encouraging and supporting the children to use number lines to count on and count back.  We are reinforcing our mathematical vocabulary related to addition and subtraction e.g. total, altogether, add, subtract, take away.

 

Next week (20.11.17) we will be doubling and halving.  We will be using the numicon to support us doing practical activities.

 

Week commencing 27.11.17 we will be learning to count in two's and five's.

We have had a fabulous first day back at school after half term. We went to Le Guet and built small shelters for our animal friends, created our own fairy garden, did rubbings and chose the perfect stick to bring back to school!

Well done Year 1, you have all had a great first half term back at school.  We hope you all have a lovely half term.  

We haven't sent home any spellings over half term so that all the children have a well earned rest.

 

Don't forget our school trip on the first day back!

Don't forget on the first day back we are on a trip!

We have been learning the names of 2D shapes and their different properties. To begin, we went on a shape walk.

It's Not a Bucket

Last week we explored the book 'It's Not a Box'. This week we have planned and written an alternative story called 'It's Not a Bucket. Mrs Wilbraham and Mrs Mellor were very proud of us, as they can see we have made so much progress with our writing.

Today we each chose our favourite part from our storyboard and put it together to make a group story. Sit back and relax and listen to our 'Not a Bucket' stories.

PROBLEM SOLVING IN MATHS

The Children played a traffic light game in maths. They had to follow rules to get 3 counters of the same colour in a row. It was not as easy as they thought at first!

As part of out theme about buckets NM1 designed and made buckets to investigate the best material to make a bucket for Billy. We made predictions and tested the buckets we had made. The children decided that plastic was the best material as it was strong and waterproof.
