Year 1 weekly news

Home » News » Year 1 weekly news

Another busy week of home learning has quickly passed by. This week you have been mischief story writers, sensational adders and European explorers. Once again Y1, you have left me beaming with happiness as you complete all of your amazing work.

In phonics this week, you have been continuing to learn your set three sounds. You are becoming experts at knowing the sounds and then using the sounds to spell words. You then build upon this learning when you read your books. You are all becoming such fluent readers by using Fred in your head to read at a quicker pace. Keep sending me videos as I love to hear all of your beautiful reading!

We started the week in English by looking at the SPaG focus of adding 'ed' to verbs so that we can change the tense from present to past. We recapped what a verb was and then became time travellers as we changed the endings so that they all ended in 'ed'. For the rest of the week you planned and wrote your own mischief stories and wow Y1 you have taken me on an adventure. These stories are full of crafty and sneaky tricks that are played upon so many animals. You have thought very carefully about what sentence openers, adjectives and verbs to use to make your story sound more interesting. You thought carefully about all of the characters and settings you were going to use so that your story could make sense. I have been so proud of these stories so far and they have been a delight to read. On Monday we will finish them off by writing the final two paragraphs.

In maths, we have been building upon our knowledge of numbers to 20 by adding them together. We had some tricky concepts to learn this week but you did amazing and were very resilient. We learned an easy way to add numbers within 20 by making 10 first and we found that we can either do this on a number line or with ten frames. You then finished the week by putting all of your learning together to solve addition word problems.

In our afternoon learning, we have been geographers, musicians and even gymnasts. In PE, you were given the task to create letters with your own body. You spelled all sorts of things and it was great to see you using the outdoors to do this. In Geography, you have been recapping your learning of the seven continents and then focusing on the continent that we live in which is Europe. You learned about different countries in Europe and their landmarks. You even found out that the currency everywhere in Europe is euros except for the United Kingdom which is pounds. In music, you practiced learning about the song 'into the groove' and it was great to see you use your instruments from home in the song. We even completed our first zoom for the children that are not accessing provision in school and what fun we had. You all looked so grown up as we gathered together in our small groups to just talk and play games. I cannot wait for our next zoom!

This week, we also celebrated children's mental health week by focusing on looking after own minds. You took part in daily activities that focused on expressing yourself, why you are unique to others and your own feelings. You created some beautiful pieces of well-being art along the way. On Friday we finished out well-being week with a well-being day where you completed no school work. Instead, you were encouraged to take time away from the screen to spend time with your families. It looked like you all had so much fun whilst watching the crazy animals at Chester zoo, going on a walk, face painting, building towers with teddies and baking scrumptious cakes. I hope this all made you feel very refreshed
!
Well done on all of your amazing home learning you truly are superstar learners. Take some time this weekend to rest so that you are ready for another exciting week of home learning.

See you virtually on Monday,

Miss Haynes
