Year 1 Weekly Updates on Learning 2023 - 2024

Friday 22nd September

This week we have focused on 'Wind' by Shirley Hughes. We have been performing the poem with actions and exploring the wind in the playground. We then thought of different describing words to help us write our our wind poems. 


In Phonics we have been revising or, ar and oo sounds. we have been applying this is our writing too. 


In Maths we have been using dienes apparatus ( tens and ones) to make different numbers to 100. We have focused on how the number is written eg 24 is 2 tens and 4 ones and then collected the corresponding dienes apparatus to show this. 


In RE we have been looking at more psalms that show God's love for everyone. We have made a class dance and used instruments to add to the movements. 


In Science we have been learning about our senses and this week's focus was hearing and touch. We have recognised different sounds in our environment and described different textures using the correct describing words. 


Have a lovely weekend. 

Friday 15th September

This week we have been exploring some of Shirley Hughes poems from her 'Out and About' poem book. We have looked at 'Mudlarks', 'Sand' and 'Water'. We read each poem and noticed how they were the same pattern. We explored sand, mud and water on own green area and thought of lots of words to describe each one. We then wrote sentences about which one we liked the best. 


In Maths we have been continuing to count forward and backwards to 100. we have also started to group objects in groups of 10 and then say how many groups of 10 we have and how many are left over. 


In Science we have been learning about our body parts and naming and recognising different parts of our bodies. 


In RE we have been learning about different psalms from the bible and that they are special songs and prayers to show us how to live in God's family. 


Have a lovely weekend. 

Friday 8th September

For our 'Power of reading' text Out and About by Shirley Hughes, we have been thinking about times that we have been out and about. We drew pictures of places that we have visited. 


In Phonics we have revised 'ch' and all of the sounds of the alphabet. 


In Maths we have been counting forwards and backwards to 100. We have been practising counting objects carefully and writing the number to match the amount. 


In RE we have started our new topic 'Families'. We have talked about the people in our families and thought about ways that they show love and care for each other. We wrote a prayer of thanks for our families. 


Can you look at home for your child's word wallets and put them in their book bag please in order to continue practising new words. 


Have a lovely weekend.
