We started the week with a wonderful liturgy in Year One, attended by so many family members and Father Jeremy. It was lovely to come together to worship and celebrate God’s creation. The children came together to make different parts of the world. Then they made a pledge about how they would continue to care for God’s creation for example watering the plants or picking up any rubbish from the floor. Thank you for everyone who was able to attend. Below are some pictures for you all to enjoy.

As you know we have had Ofsted in this week. As a team we are so proud of the children in Year One. Their behaviour, learning and attitudes are a credit to you all.

Well done Turtles and Puffer fish, have a well deserved break this weekend.

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the welcome meeting on Tuesday, it was lovely to meet you all. If you were unable to attend we have provided your child with a print out of the presentation. If you need another copy please just ask.

Our learning this week

We have really enjoyed our new topic of dinosaurs this week, it all started when we walked in to the classroom on Monday morning to find dinosaur footprints on the floor! We then went on a dinosaur hunt to go and find the dinosaur that had left the prints! We’ve even created our own species of dinosaur in English- cutting up our favorite parts of different dinosaurs and giving it it’s own name.

In maths this week we have been focusing on one more and one less than a number. We have managed to dodge the rain and get outside for maths learning in the secret garden.

Welcome to Year One

What a fantastic first week in Year One Turtles and Pufferfish! You have certainly grown up over the summer and have proved to us you are ready for learning.

This week we have been learning about our class animals to get settled in. As of next week we will move on to our full topic which is DINOSAURS! We have fantastic learning planned for the next coming weeks such as making our own dinosaur bones, making nests for dinosaur eggs and even going on a dinosaur hunt!

Homework diaries will be in the children’s book bags, please read the first ten pages of the diary and the last couple of pages, these have very important and key information on. Our homework focus for the next couple of weeks will be reading. We have been assessing children’s levels this week, which will continue in to next week to ensure all children have a reading book to take home. It is vital that the children read as often as possible in Year One.

Look out for photos next week of wonderful dinosaur learning.
