Welcome to Year 1 - St Bernadette

Welcome to our class page.
December Update 2020
In RE we have been learning about Mary, Our Mother. The children have been practicing the Hail Mary and thinking about why she is so important. In the lead up to Christmas, we have also been learning about advent and what we can do to prepare for Jesus' birthday and his second coming.
In English, we have been looking at the features of letters and what we must include when writing one. Following this, the children have each thought about a Christmas wish for others, what they have worked hard at this year and what they would like for Christmas. The children have put this into writing, creating their own letters to Father Christmas. We have also really enjoyed acting out The Nativity and writing a recount of The Christmas Story.
We have been exploring number and place value. Year 1 have found lots of interesting ways to represent different numbers using classroom objects, resources and written methods e.g bead strings, unifix cubes and tally marks. We have also been using the base ten and part-whole models to partition teen numbers and write addition number sentences.
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.|
