Believing  Achieving  Learning for Life

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Welcome to the Year One page!  In our classroom we love learning with Mrs Leonard, Mrs Morris and Ms Davies.  We are lucky enough to have a large, spacious classroom and outdoor space to play and learn in.  Every week, we can choose to lead our own learning in the different areas of the classroom as well as doing our work in groups, 1:1 with an adult or together as a whole class.  


We love to learn!



This term we are learning about information reports and we have been writing reports all about pets.  We have learnt to write sentences about pets, remembering to use sounds to spell words, capital letters and full stops and we are even great at using question marks for questions and exclamation marks for our 'wow!' facts.  Do you have a pet?  What do you love about your pet?  If you could choose any pet, what would you choose?



We are signed up to Numbots, the brilliant app where children can practise their maths skills at school and at home.  You earn coins for trying hard and playing lots of games.  Then you use the coins to buy new parts for your robot.  We recommend that your child plays Numbots in short busts several times a week to improve their mental arithmetic.  

In maths this term we have been learning about addition and subtraction within 20.  We work with equipment such as tens frames, base 10 and counters to help us deeply understand concepts before moving on to pictures and number sentences and show our understanding of the learning.  


We are improving our knowledge of place value and being able to talk about the tens and ones in a given number and we are becoming more confident and using symbols 'greater than', 'less than' and 'equal to' to compare numbers.  


Every week we work on our arithmetic skills by competing against our own personal scores in 'Big Maths'.  We love waiting to hear which song Mrs Morris puts on and we race against the song to complete as many calculations as we can.  Big Maths is great!  When we improve our score, we get to have a special photo taken to show our parents.  


We love maths!
