Summer Term message from Mrs Eaves: 

Welcome back to school following our lovely two week half term break! I hope you are all feeling refreshed and ready for our last half term together in year one. 

The Phonics Screener Check for Year One takes place week commencing 10th June.  Please continue to practice the Phonics screener words which have been sent home weekly over the last half tern in preparation for this.  If you have any questions regarding these, please do not hesitate and come and see me. 

This half term in Science we will be learning all about Animals,  your child will learn that animals, including humans, can be sorted into six groups: amphibians, birds, fish, invertebrates, mammals and reptiles. They will learn that different animal groups have similar and different body parts and the purposes of these body parts. They will sort animals into the six animal groups based on characteristics. Linked to our Science Topic we will be visiting Blackpool Zoo to observe and learn more interesting facts about the six animal groups. 

In maths we will be learning about money, position and direction and time.

I am looking forward to our Olympic week in school, which takes place week commencing 24th June. All children will have the opportunity to take part in new sports and will learn about the Olympic Games, being held this year in Paris.

Please have a look at the fridge words linked below. These words are based on the vocabulary we are exploring within our topic and science lessons. How many of these can you learn?

Please take a look at the documents below so you know exactly what we will be learning this term.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask - I am happy to help!

Mrs Eaves

Victorian Day in Year One

year1 teacher (K.Eaves) on: Year 1 Blog

What a fantastic day we had in school. The children came dressed up as Victorians and we had the wonderful Mr Worrell in class.  He brought in many artefacts from the Victorian period and the children got to handle and have a go at being a Victorian school child. Amazing!


Beautiful Butterflies

year1 teacher (K.Eaves) on: Year 1 Blog

We have watched our tiny caterpillars go through their amazining life cycle and we set the 5 Painted Ladies free on our Wonderful Wednesday to the delight and amazement of our children!


We are Going to the Zoo!

year1 teacher (K.Eaves) on: Year 1 Blog

What an incredible day we spent at Blackpool Zoo.  We saw so many animals, and the children had the most amazing day out.  There were a few sleepy children on the way home, and some very tired grown ups too!


Wonderful Wednesday

year1 teacher (K.Eaves) on: Year 1 Blog

What a Wonderful Wednesday we shared where together the children and their families created a collage of a mini beast.


OLYMPIC WEEK

year1 teacher (K.Eaves) on: Year 1 Blog

What an amazing week we have had in school this week.  The children in Year One learnt about the Mountain Bike Cyclist Tom Pidcock who is competing at this year's Olympic Games in Paris.  We also looked at the different sports to be included in this years Olympics and the many different flags of the competing countries. The children tried new sports, including handball, Archery and Golf.  They also spent the day with the GB Athlete Renold Banigo, training with him and learning about what it takes to be a GB athelete. Unfortunately Reynold should have been competing at this year's games but he is out with an injury, torn his hamstring.  He is hopeful to be back in training in the new year.
