Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Mrs Powell and Mrs Darbyshire

 

On this page you will find information and news about the exciting things that happen in Year 1.

 

Our PE days are  Monday and Friday. Please remember your PE kits and remember to come to school without earrings on these days.

 

Book changing days are on our Parent Notice Board.

 

Homework for this half term is to create a Memory Box Scrapbook. We will be sharing these every Friday in class.

 

Keep checking our webpage for updates of our learning.

Our current topic is Memory Box. So we will be thinking about special events that we can remember and finding out about things that happened in the past before we were born. To start our topic off, we will be having a Teddy Bear's Parade! Will anyone have a bear older than Mrs Powell's? Over the next few weeks, as part of our R.E., English and history lessons, we will be looking back at photos of when we were babies and special family occasions. Traditional tales and fables will be a focus for our reading and writing, and we will be learning how to retell stories with actions. We might even invent one of our own!

Our topic to start the year off was Paws, Claws and Whiskers! So we were looking at animals around the world and locally. We had an exciting start to the school year with this topic as lots of visitors cam into Year 1. As part of this topic, we also visited Austerfield Study Centre. We looked at animals around the world and classified them into groups. We had fun building habitats for the local Austerfield animals. To finish our topic, and celebrate our learning, we held a Pet Party. We had lots of fun with our families and pets sharing cake, biscuits and juice, and we also enjoyed performing the songs we had learned about the seven continents and five oceans. Check out the photos below!

Emma, from the Dog's Trust, came to teach us how to care for dogs. We learned what dogs need to be healthy and happy. She also taught us how to stay safe if an unknown dog approaches us!

Lisa, from the Rotherham Dog Rescue centre, brought Peanut in to visit us. Peanut is a five-year-old rescue dog. She can do lots of tricks - she can jump, sit, roll over and she's a very good dancer!

Mrs Osborne brought her dog, Alfie, in to visit. Mrs Osbourne showed us how she takes care of Alfie in order to keep him healthy and happy. He had lots of fun in Year 1, and then he enjoyed a little rest in Mr Bratt's office.

We saw lots of different animals from around the world when we visited Austerfield Study Centre. We classified them too! Do you know which ones are reptiles, mammals, amphibians, birds or fish? And what about invertebrates?
