'A Community of faith where we believe, achieve and grow together'

Year 1 - Yew

Welcome to Yew Class!



This week we have continued to find out about Antarctica and have started to create a non-chronological report about penguins. This week we have been learning about Emperor penguins. Ask your children if they can tell you some interesting facts about them. 

In Maths we have been adding with money and revising the value of each coin. 

We will post some pictures of our amazing writing next week! 



This week we have started our exciting new topic about penguins and Antarctica. We are excited to learn more about it! 

In Maths we have been thinking about one more and one less than a number, as well as beginning to think about time. 

In English we have been looking at the difference between fiction and non fiction writing as we will be completing some non-fiction reports about penguins in the coming weeks. 

In Geography we have been locating and naming the seven continents of the world. 




We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and new year. We have had a busy first few days adjusting to our new classroom layout. The children have been very excited about having their own place at the tables! In maths we have been practicing our number bonds to 10 (and 20 for some people!) and in English we have been writing a recount about our fantastic Christmas holiday. In Science we have been learning about the ways in which animals adapt to winter. The children know all about hibernation and migration! 


Please check the class information page for new updates. 




This week we have been busy with nativity rehearsals. In Maths we have continued with our work on fractions and in English we have been learning about Harvey Slumfenburger's Christmas present. We did some drama to practice the repeated language from the story and thought about what Harvey might want for Christmas. In dance the children had great fun with beanbags and a parachute this week. 


It has been a spotty day today for Children in Need! In Maths this week we have been finding half of shapes and amounts. In English we went on an Autumn walk and thought about all of the things you could see, hear, feel, smell and taste in Autumn. We used this to write a poem about Autumn and they were fantastic! We also loved our dance lesson this week and had a go at dancing with scarves. 


Another week gone already! The children have been busy writing weather poems in English this week. In Maths they have been learning about shape and doing lots of exciting practical activities. We have also enjoyed another exciting week with the dance coach. Take a look at the photos and videos to see us in action. 


We have had a fantastic first week back! In maths we have continued our work on subtraction. In literacy we have been starting our poetry unit by performing poems and rhymes. Take a look at our videos below, our teachers thought we were amazing! 

We also started dance on Thursday afternoon with Hayley the dance coach. We loved using the long ribbons! 



Wow what a busy last week of term we have had! We are so pleased with how hard the children have worked this half term and we have loved learning all about Neil Armstrong and Space. To end the topic we had an assembly this morning to share what we have learnt about Neil Armstrong and Space. 

In Maths the last 2 weeks we have been working on addition and subtraction using the 'part, part, whole method in very creative ways.
