1W

 

Welcome to 1W!

Friday 25th May:

What an amazing end to Half Term! 

We have had such a busy week in 1W. On Tuesday, we visited the Wolseley Centre and learned all about watery wildlife and minibeasts. I've placed a few photographs on the tab to the left. Thank you to everyone who supported the educational visit and the children all had a brilliant time. On Wednesday, it was Outdoor Classroom Day. The children completed addition and subtraction on the playground, a phonics hunt and even created their own minibeasts. 

Sadly, we have come to the end of our Peter Pan work so, as part of their activity day, the children watched the film. We compared it to the story we had read and all decided we wanted to go to Neverland. If only that could be our next trip!

We will be continuing our 'Let's Explore!' topic after Half Term and I have lots of brilliant things planned for the children. I hope you all have a lovely Half Term and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday 4th June.

Friday 11th May:

As I'm sure the children have told you, we have been reading Peter Pan this week and he has even flew into our classroom. 1W have been memorised by Peter Pan and have loved learning about his adventures in Neverland. Peter Pan has also extended to our Geography work where we created our own maps of Neverland. In ICT, the children have been using beebots to create algorithms and different iPad apps have also been supporting this. In Maths, we have been continuing to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. We even used PE equipment to build arrays on the playground!

It isn't long until our Wolseley Centre visit and there are still a few outstanding forms. If you haven't handed your form in, please hand it in as soon as you can.

As always, if you need to speak to me, please catch me in the morning or my email is: c.williams@leasowes.staffs.sch.uk

Thank you for your continued support.

Friday 27th April

1W have been exploring 'Where the Wild Things Are' this week. We have started to write our own versions where we have changed one part of the story. In Science, we have sorted animals based on their habitat and size. In Maths, we have been revisiting position and direction. The children were much more confident describing quarter turns and recognising left and right which is brilliant to see :)

Thank you to everyone who sent in their junk for the modelling on Friday. The children loved it and we tweeted before and after photos @Leasowesprimary. The left over junk was donated to Nursery who are also junk modelling soon.

If you haven't sent in your reply slip for the Wolseley visit, please send them in asap. Copies of the letters are below.

I have also attached our Let's Explore topic flyer for you to see what the children will be learning about this term.

As always, if you need to speak to me, please catch me in the morning or my email is: c.williams@leasowes.staffs.sch.uk

Thank you for your continued support.

Friday 20th April 

What a superb first week back 1W have had. They have settled back into school life really quickly and are very eager to learn. We have started reading 'Where the Wild Things Are' and the children had some great ideas about what a 'wild thing' might be. We described the main character of Max and discussed where he might sail off to. Following this, the children have decided to build boats in D&T so we will be completing this on Friday 27th April. If you have any cereal boxes, yoghurt pots, milk carton tops spare, please send them in :)

We have also managed to secure a date for our trip on Tuesday 22nd May to the Wolseley Centre. Please send in the reply slips to school so we can confirm numbers. Copies of the letters are below.

As always, if you need to speak to me, please catch me in the morning or my email is: c.williams@leasowes.staffs.sch.uk

Thank you for your continued support.

Summer Term is here!

I can't believe we are starting the final term of Year One. The progress the children have made so far has blew me away and I can't wait to see what they achieve in our final term together. We are kicking off our final topic of 'Let's Explore!' Here the children will learn about animals from around the world, different climates and finally transform into pirates after Half Term!

I have lots of surprises planned along the way and I'm certain the children are going to enjoy their final term in Year One.

PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday this half term. I've attached our updated timetable below. 

I can't wait to start - see you on Monday!

Miss Williams :) 

 

Important information:

Spellings will be given out on Friday and tested on the following Friday. These will be tested in the children's phonics groups.

Please continue to hear your child read as often as you can and sign their diary. Most children now are very independent at changing their books which is brilliant to see. 

PE is on Wednesday and Thursday. Please can you ensure ALL clothing items are clearly named.
