Look at us learning


Little Amal

We have enjoyed learning all about Little Amal this week. The children have asked lots of thoughtful questions about migration and refugees. We thought about ways that we could make Amal feel welcome. We have made latterns, flowers, learnt a song, made signs and our week culminated in a welcome party where we danced with Little Amal!

Batman's helpers!

Batman often rings us in year 1 to ask us to write down his secret code! We have to listen carefully to the words and write them down, thinking about the sounds that we hear. Batman has been challenging us to use finger spaces between the words.

Story maps

We enjoyed retelling our stories to each other using our story maps.

Maths resources

We enjoy using resources in our maths lessons. We have been using linking cubes, tens frames and number bond diagrams to help with our counting, ordering of numbers and adding.

Letters and sounds


Brilliant Beginnings!

As our 'Brilliant Beginning' to our history topic, the children this week enjoyed visiting a toy museum! They were able to look at and play with a variety of toys from the present day and the past. Some of the toys were eighty years old! The children then sorted the toys in to old and new.

Our first week in year 1!

We have had a fantastic first week in year 1 with all of the children settling in well.
