Year 1 have set off to a great start this term with the mysterious crash landing of a spaceship to investigate. They had a great time exploring the scene and searching for clues.
They will be continuing to learn about the alien creature 'Beegu' and thinking about what makes them unique and special.
Year one have set off to a great start this term exploring 'Landscapes and Cityscapes'. It was fantastic to see so many of them dressed up as builders. They had a great time trying different building challenges throughout our entry day.
Coming up this we will be exploring the story of 'Roberto The Insect Architect', 'The Great Fire of London' and different building materials.
I know we are going to have an amazing term learning more about landscapes and cityscapes around the world.
The children loved creating their own houses for the Big Bad Wolf to try and blow down!
As part of multicultural book week the food theme continued!
We had great fun retelling the story of 'Handa's Surprise' and describing the delicious fruits in Handa's basket.
Thank you to all those who came and shared books with the Year 1 children, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
The children have begun term 3 and our 'Blast Off!' topic by thinking about adventures and exploration. They had great fun on the entry day creating imaginary lands and pretending they were on an expedition.
Throughout this term they will be learning about real life explorers including Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus and how they have influenced the world.
In Term 1 the children have been enjoying following 'Maths No Problem' to develop their knowledge of numbers. They will be learning about number bonds before moving on to develop skills in addition.
during multiplication lessons will be learning to count and multiply in 2's and look forward to your support in helping the children to practise.
In Year One we encourage the children to read everyday and the home school reading books MUST come into school everyday even if they have not finished the book.
The children have the opportunity to change their reading book everyday and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school. We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read a book. If you would like to keep the book a little longer or revisit it at a later time, please let us know.
ERIC Time (Everyone Reads In Class) will take place every Friday afternoon. To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading during this time.
ERIC TIME has been a great success across the school and we look forward to continuing to inspire a love of reading this year.
Year 1 will be taking part in a dance and a games lesson each week. We would like children to keep their full kit in school at all times. This should include shorts, t-shirts and plimsolls and jogging bottoms.
Please can all items of uniform be clearly named, this includes PE kit. Children find it very hard to identify their own tie or jumper!
Soon the children will be able to borrow a book from our school library each week. Please could you ensure the book is well looked after and returned every week.
Peach Class - Wednesday

If you have any queries or would like further information, please do not hesitate to ask the Year 1 team.
The children will be receiving a reading comprehension and a phonics activity sheet each week. They will receive these on Friday and they need to be returned by the following Wednesday. On Mondays the children will receive times tables to practise which they will be tested on each Friday. In year 1 we focus on multiples of 2, 10 and 5 and the children can progress through a bronze, silver and gold challenge for each.
This children will also receive 6 spelling words based on the phonics and tricky words they have been practising that week. They will have a spelling quiz the following Friday.
To encourage your child's progress with phonics and times tables please find some useful links with suitable games and activities.
Thank you for your support.
