Badger Class


Autumn Term 2018


It has been a very busy term in Year 1 so far. We are extremely proud of how well the children have settled. We would like to thank all of the parents who attended our open morning. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Over the next few weeks we will be making our own gingerbread men. In order to do this, we will be writing our own instructions in Literacy. In Science we are going to be thinking about how we can keep our gingerbread man waterproof, to enable him to cross the river.

In Maths we are thinking about addition, subtraction and multiplication. We are also learning about halving. We will be thinking about halving our ingredients when making our gingerbread men.

In Topic we have been busy learning about our school and the environment that surrounds it. We have enjoyed looking at the view from our window and we have used collage and paint to represent it. We have spoken about how the view from our window may change throughout the year.

In Phonics we are very busy learning the Phase 5 tricky words and sounds. You could help us with this at home by going on the ‘Phonics Play’ website.

We are also very much enjoying applying all of this learning in choosing learning time, as well as our PE sessions with Mrs Serridge.

It is expected that we are reading at home at least three times a week. We all cannot wait to receive our reading certificates.
