Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

(2018-2019)

See below to find out what we have been learning over the year!

 

 

Autumn Term 2018

The fantastic learning of Year 1 is in date order, starting with the most recent. Please have a look at all of our learning this term. 

Arts Week 15:10:18 -19:10:18  Japan

 

We have a great Arts Week learning all about Japan. We started off by having a magic carpet ride from school to Japan! We have learnt lots of new skills, tried some sushi, listened to and danced to Japanese music. We have also had the opportunity to work with our Buddy Classes in Year 3 and Year 5.

 

The children have created a background using primary colours, then mixed them and added black and white for tone and tint for some of their artwork to be displayed on. Have a look at Year 1 in action in the photographs below.

 

Don't forget our whole school Art Exhibition is on Friday 2nd November and Monday 5th November.

Perseverance Value Day 12:10:18

 

The children enjoyed dressing in orange today for our value of Perseverance. We talked about how we felt when we found things difficult and how when we persevere we feel good. As we know "Hard is Good!" 

The children completed some tricky but fun activities, showing lots of perseverance and cooperation. We all enjoyed listening to songs like 'Don't give up' and Inksy Spinksy Spider'. What a fantastic day of learning.

RE Day 11th October 2018

Angelfish and Seahorses have spent the day learning about the Jewish Festival of Sukkot. They acted the story of Moses in the wilderness and had a great time making shelters (Sukkahs). Seahorses made their shelters on a large scale using the furniture in the classroom and Angelfish made theirs out of boxes and decorated with leaves and fruit. 

We have also talked about Harvest and things in our wonderful world we would like to give thanks for.

 

Here is a lovely prayer written by Arya.

Dear God,

Thank you for the doctors and nurses who make us better.

Thank you for the animals who give us food and drink.

Thank you for Harvest

Amen

 

Great co-operation and perseverance too when making our Sukkahs (shelters).

What a Wonderful World

 

Today we learnt about Harvest and  about how wonderful our world is, by watching Louis Armstrong singing the song and a video clip narrated by David Attenborough showing lots of amazing animals! We then went outside to look at nature and find things that made us say WOW!

Happiness Value Day

 

We had a great day learning all about our school value of happiness, the children all brought in something that made them happy. They talked confidently to the class about the reasons their object made them happy. All of the children showed great respect when listening to others which has made us all extremely proud. Later, we all tried on the Happiness Helmet and it really worked! Look at the photograph of Mr Brickell below!

Mr Brickell tried on our Happiness Helmet! We think it worked!

Summer Term 2017-2018

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Thank you so much for all of the lovely cards, gifts and the kind words. This school year has been brilliant and we have thoroughly enjoyed teaching your lovely children. We know they will continue to work just as hard in Year 2.

Thank you for all of your support this year; we really, really appreciate it!

The Year 1 Team

Today we ended our Topic of 'Go Wild' with a visit from Zoo Lab! The children were really excited to see a variety of animals and learn even more about the natural world. Dan, from Zoo Lab was really impressed with the children's knowledge and understanding, he said he had never known children of this age showing such a good understanding and was also impressed with the questions they asked. Well done Seahorses and Angelfish!

We saw a cockroach, a scorpion, a rat, a snail, a stick insect,  a millipede, a frog and a snake. Most of the children were confident to either touch or hold the different animals!

This topic has been such a success and the children and staff have thoroughly enjoyed it

Mr Brickell's Visit

 

Seahorses and Angelfish were really lucky to have another visitor to come and talk to them about looking after animals. Mr Brickell came in to explain all about his dogs, Betty and Dave. We were so excited to see he had bought Betty with him! All of the children asked amazing questions and they all got the chance to stroke Betty! What a great experience for us all!

A visit from Mrs Hicks

We were really lucky to have a visit from Mrs Hicks and listen to her telling us all about her pets. The children had composed questions as part of our English learning and confidently asked Mrs Hicks questions about her pets and how she looked after them.

Year 1 Forest School Day!

 

Seahorses and Angelfish had a great day investigating plants and animals, creating natural art and learning lots! We all had lots of fun and listened well to Adrian, who ran the day. He was really impressed with the attitude all of the children showed and we were very proud of them. This is what Adrian said about our fantastic Year one children:

"What a lovely day and great children, a pleasure to spend time outside with them; keen to learn, investigate, explore and have fun!"

 

Forest School Day

Go Wild!

 

This term, our topic is Go Wild!

We will be learning about plants and animals, looking at what they need to survive, how to care for them and finding out interesting facts.

We have been exploring the school grounds looking for deciduous and evergreen trees!

 

 

Cassie the dog!Go Wild!

 

We have been extremely lucky to have welcomed Mr Harding into school with Cassie the dog and a snake! Lots of the children were keen to touch the snake and enjoyed the experience! Questions from the children were very interesting and they were able to extend their knowledge. Well done Year 1!

Meeting Turtles!

 

We were very luck to have the chance to see some musk turtles. We even got the chance to hold them. The children asked some really good questions and found out lots about how musk turtles live, how to care for them and what they eat.

 

Planting fun!

 

We have been looking around our school grounds looking for plants!

Snow!!

Having fun in the snow!

Seahorses and Angelfish visited the Priest's House Museum in Wimborne. We learnt about life in the past; making peg dolls, learning games,tried to wash clothes without having any electricity and looking at lots of old toys. The children learnt lots and were incredibly well behaved as always. A real credit to our school.  Since returning to school they have been looking at artefacts from the past and have used them in our role play areas. 

Year One enjoyed dressing up in green clothes for 'Kindness Day' on Friday 9th February. They thought of lots of ways to show kindness to each other and the adults in school and at home. Some children made cards to give to their friends with a kind message inside, this really put a smile on their faces!

Recipe for Challah Bread

Challah Bread

  • 600ml (1 pint) warm water (45 C)
  • 1 tablespoon dried active baking yeast
  • 7 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1kg (2 1/4 lb) plain flour+10

 

· Email

Ingredients
Serves: 30

  • 600ml (1 pint) warm water (45 C)
  • 1 tablespoon dried active baking yeast
  • 7 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1kg (2 1/4 lb) plain flour
  •  

 

Method
Prep:3hr › Cook:40min › Ready in:3hr40min

  1. In a large bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water. Beat in honey, oil, 2 eggs and salt. Add the flour in small amounts, beating after each addition, graduating to kneading with hands as dough thickens. Knead until smooth and elastic and no longer sticky, adding flour as needed. Cover with a clean damp cloth and let rise for 1 1/2 hours or until dough has doubled in size.
  2. Punch down the risen dough and turn out onto floured board. Divide in half and knead each half for five minutes or so, adding flour as needed to keep from getting sticky. Divide each half into thirds and roll into long snake about 4cm (1 1/2 in) in diameter. Pinch the ends of the three snakes together firmly and plait from middle.
  3. Grease two baking trays and place a finished plait on each. Cover with towel and let rise about one hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5.
  5. Beat the remaining egg and brush a generous amount over each plait. Sprinkle with poppy seeds if desired.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes. Bread should have a nice hollow sound when tapped on the bottom. Cool on a rack for at least one hour before slicing.

 

 

Seahorses and Angelfish enjoyed making Challah Bread as part of our learning about Shabbat (The Jewish Sabbath). We read the recipe, measured the ingredients, mixed the ingredients. Then we left the dough covered with a damp cloth. After lunch the dough had risen; so we kneaded it, rolled and plaited it. We put it in the oven and it was ready to eat just as we were ready to go home! It was delicious!

Shabbat- Making Challah Bread

Have a look at the wonderful photographs below of Seahorses Arts Week, where we learnt about the inventor John Logie Baird. We created some stunning black and white art. Then used primary colours and mixed them to discover how to make other colours. 

Spring Term Curriculum Brochure

DT Day Monday 8th January 2018

 

After listening to and joining in with the story of the 3 Little Pigs, the children worked with partners to create a house of either straw, sticks or bricks. The were also able to choose to make stick puppets of the characters. Later, we looked around the school grounds for materials used in buildings. We found wood, brick, stone, glass and metal. Unfortunately, we couldn't find anything made from straw-I wonder why?

 

 

Can you tell what materials we found in the school grounds?

Welcome back to our new year in Seahorses and Angelfish.

The children have settled into their new classes and routines beautifully! We are very proud of them and their attitude to their learning.

Please can you ensure children have their PE kits in school every day as we sometimes have to change our PE slots due to the weather or for other reasons such as trips-Thank you

 

Please can you also make sure the children have a coat in school each day as we try to go out each day even when it's raining!

 

Thank you for your support and we look forward to an amazing year!
