During our Mission Day, Year 1 focused on the line 'we love Jesus and try to share this love with others'. Year 1 discussed the ways we can show and share love and also recognised that we can have a love of doing things. We decided to share our love of dance with our friends in Year 2. Year 2 were invited to watch our final performance of our 'Cats' routine. What a success is was! Year 1 were all star performers and all work and photographs were created by the children. A special thanks to Mrs O'Hare for all her hard work and support with the routine. Well done everyone!
This week the children took their RE learning outdoors. We have been learning about Mary travelling a long journey to visit her cousin Elizabeth to share the news she was expecting a baby. The children created role plays, in pairs, and documented Mary's journey and interactions with Elizabeth. Amazing efforts all round! Well done :)
This week Year 1 were busy perfecting their 'Cats' inspired dance routine with Mrs O'Hare. The children have been working very hard with this routine preparing it for their showcase in a few weeks time. Watch this space for their final performance in the coming weeks!
On Monday Year 1 shared their first class Liturgy of this academic year. The children showed their knowledge and understanding of the 'Creation Story' from Genesis through their work, song and prayer. Thank you to Father Peter for helping Year 1 and to all who attended to reflect and celebrate with the children. Please enjoy some photos of the children from their Liturgy. Well done Year 1 :)
This week, Year 1 were lucky enough to have a visit from Mr Smith, from Stockport Music Service. He spent time with us exploring different instruments and helping us to learn to use them correctly. Year 1 also learnt some songs with Mr Smith where they had to focus on rhythm patterns. Year 1 loved seeing Mr Smith and are excited to continue to learn more in Music!
This week in English the children were looking at repeated songs and poems. We discussed a wide range of poems and songs the children knew and created a class list. The children also got to perform some of them! Here is just one of their fantastic performances...
Year 1 have been busy this half term, in Science, learning all about different types of materials. They have spent time considering the materials things are made from and the different ways they can recycle to help look after the environment. Excellent work Year 1!
The children began to think about Harvest. They learnt about where out food comes from how we gather it from the ground and use it to cook and eat. The children also confidently their presented their work in our PSHE assembly.
This week, we took our learning outside! Using our new markings in the playground, we completed lots of maths challenges! We spent time learning about different directions, using a compass (linked to our History/ICT work) Well done boys and girls! :)
This week the children enjoyed a pirate themed week. All their lessons were based around our History topic of Pirates. The children had lots of fun, especially during 'Talk Like A Pirate Day!'
This week we have been very busy! We started to get used to lots of new ways of learning across many different subjects. We particularly enjoyed learning about creating labels. We used chalk to draw around each other and label parts of our bodies.
We have had a fantastic start to Year 1 this week. We got to explore our classroom and other areas as well as creating some super work to display in our room! This year we are going to try lots of new things and have lots of fun!
