Dear children and parents... WELCOME TO YEAR 1!!
You've now had a chance to meet your new teachers and we can't wait to start our journey together.
In the meantime, have a restful 6 weeks off.

This half term we have learnt about recounts and wrote one about our walk around the school. We then learnt the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and then changed the characters and settings to create our own traditional tale. Ask your child if they can tell you their story.
In our first half term we have elarnt about numbers to ten. We ordered numbers, compared numbers and learnt how to write them in numerals and words. We then learnt about number bonds up to 10. Finally we used our number bonds to make addition equations and number stories.
This half term we have learnt about five local heroes. We learnt about the Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington, footballer Michael Doyle, Olympic runner Darren Campbell, artist L.S Lowry and suffragette Emiline Pankhurst. We used documents and Artifacts to find out more about our Heroes. As part of the topic we had a great day at the National Football Museum and then we even made our own Museum in school which year 2 came to visit.
Children have been learning how to find the pulse in songs. They have used their bodies and instruments to play along to different songs. They have also started to read simple notation and play a simple pattern with different instruments. One of the songs children have enjoyed is Shotgun- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_B3qkp4nO4 ask your child if they can tap the pulse while listening to the song.
This term children have been looking at portraits. They have looked at different artists and drawn their own self portraits, abstract portraits and moving portraits. They have made some beautiful art work to be proud of.
