Year 1- St. Bernadette- Miss Shaw
Welcome to Year 1 - St Bernadette
Class Teacher: Miss Shaw
Support Staff: Mrs Ward-Brickett
Welcome to our class page.
October Update 2020
In RE we have been learning about God's Creation and about all the beautiful gifts that he has given us. We have also listened to Pope Francis' special letter about Laudato Si' and thought about ways we can protect our Earth, God's Creation and each other.
In English, we have been reading 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt'. We have had great fun retelling the story both inside and outside of the classroom and in Forest School. Year 1 were super excited to go on a dinosaur hunt, where we found clues across the school and a letter from the dinosaurs. We have been writing our own versions of the story and recounts of our hunt to stop the dinosaurs eating all of our food!
We have been exploring number and place value. Year 1 have found lots of interesting ways to represent different numbers using classroom objects and resources and written methods e.g bead strings, unifix cubes, tally marks and number sentences. We have also been ordering numbers on a number line and spotting the missing numbers!
September Update 2020
In RE this week we have been learning about our class saint, who she is and why she is important. We have also discussed the meaning of Veritas and collaged our own logos. In the next couple of weeks we be continuing to learn about 'God's Great Plan'.
In English this week, we have been using the book 'The day the crayons quit' to inspire our writing. We have read the story, acted it out and written letters to the crayons. This week our chairs also went missing and some letters were left behind for us to read. We have been working hard responding to the letters to find out why the chairs have quit!
Year 1 have been working really hard to apply their problem solving skills. We have been completing maths challenge activities such as estimating how many objects are in the jar, comparing weights of classroom objects, naming and identifying shapes, solving number problems, practising our number formation and making different repeating patterns.
A Typical Day in Year 1
Reading books will be sent home on a Monday and collected back in on a Friday. Bug Books will be allocated for over the weekend. Please make sure that you read with your child every day. Regrettably, we are unable to change school reading books until the previous books have been written in the reading record, returned and the reading record is signed.
|Homework||Homework will be sent out via Google Classroom every Thursday and is due the following Thursday.|
|P.E & Forest School Days||
Our P.E. day is Thursday. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. Remember if your child has a club after school you will need to return their PE kit. All long hair needs to be tied back.
Our Forest School day is Tuesday. Children will have a session once a fortnight. Please make sure they have the appropriate named kit in school.
|Morning Routine||When children arrive in the morning they are expected to say goodbye to their parents on the playground. The children then come into class and change out of their coats and outdoor shoes, putting away their book bags, water bottles and lunch boxes. Once their belongings are away the children go to their places where they complete their early morning work. At 8:45 the classroom door is closed and registration is taken, finishing with morning prayer. Any child arriving after 8:45 must enter school through the Main Reception Area where a late slip must be completed.|
