Welcome to Year 1!
Year 1 is made up of two classes. Class 3 is taught by Miss Broughton and Class 4 is taught by Miss King and Mrs Rowe.
All Year 1 children will have the opportunity to reach their full potential and be the best they can be. Year 1 children will show the Milford Values: Motivation, Independence, Learning, Forward Thinking, Outstanding, Respect and Determination.
PE is on Wednesday. Please make sure your child’s PE kit includes:
- Plain white PE top
- Plain blue/black jogging bottoms
- Plain blue/black shorts
- Spare socks
- Trainers/plimsolls (these need to be different from what they wear in the day)
- Plain blue/black sweatshirt/hoodie
- Tape/plasters for earrings
Please name everything. It is very hard for us to return/find lost PE kit that is not named.
In English this half term we have been reading and writing about ‘Billy’s Bucket’. We have had great fun acting out the story and looking into our own buckets to see what sea creatures we can ‘see.’
We are trying very hard to improve our sentences by adding exclamation marks when something exciting is happening!
Our main focus in handwriting has been the one armed robot letter family – r, m, n, h, b, k, p.
In Maths this half term we have been learning about multiplication. We have been setting out counters into arrays to help us find the correct answers.
We are continuing to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.
We have learnt all about different types of animals and how to classify them into different groups. We have learnt about the characteristics of mammals, amphibians, birds, reptiles and fish. We have also looked at the differences between vertebrates and invertebrates.
Our topic this term has been ‘Under the Sea.’ We went on a fantastic trip to the sealife centre where we found out lots of facts about sea creatures. We particularly loved watching the penguins and seeing ‘Bev’ the octopus.
We have had fantastic fun this term using collage to make beautiful fish to decorate our classroom. We have worked on different ways of using colour and also on our cutting skills.
We had a visit from the talented author ‘Helen’ who read us her new book which was all about a little rain cloud. We then had to use our bodies to pretend to be different kinds of weather.
Helen asked us to help her draw some illustrations for her book. We had to draw our designs on a long piece of paper which was laid out on the floor.
