Hello and welcome to Year 1.
We are so proud of how all the children have settled into Year 1 so quickly after the summer holidays.
During this first half term we are focusing on getting the children used to the transition from Reception to Year 1 and becoming familiar different routines and their new surroundings.
Over the last two weeks the children have started their first Year 1 Talk for Writing text – Goldilocks and the three bears. The children had a shock on Tuesday when they walked in to find several areas of Year 1 cordoned off as crime scenes – someone had been in our classrooms overnight….but who??? By investigating the crime scenes and finding clues, the children decided that it had to be Goldilocks who been in our classrooms. She had eaten some porridge, tried Daddy Bear’s big and very hard bed, and even sat on Baby Bear’s chair and broken it!!
The children have learnt to retell the story using a story map, creating their own actions to help them remember key vocabulary.
The children have started learning new songs to help them in their maths lessons including “The big number song” which the children love because they start with 1 and end up at 1 trillion!!!
