This week in Year 1 we have been busy learning more about Goldilocks. The children have enjoyed cutting and sticking to sequence the story. Lots of children have also been writing letters to Goldilocks, asking her different questions and trying to find out why she came into our school!


In Art we have been enjoying drawing round different 2D shapes and then using a variety of different media to add colour to their work. The children particularly enjoyed using oil pastels!


In PSHE this week we have been talking about the word ‘worried’ and what it means. The children shared what can make them feel worried and we have been working together to come up with strategies to help. Afterwards the children all shared who they feel they can trust both in school and out, so that they know who they can talk to if they are ever feeling worried. They have also drawn some pictures of the people they trust.

Year 1 have had a fantastic start to the school year, settling in well and showing their kind nature towards each other.

This week in Maths, they have enjoyed counting and sorting different monsters into groups, using chalk and paintbrushes to help them practise their numbers and working together as a team to sort different shapes and colours. We also had lots of fun dancing and counting to 100!

We were also lucky enough with the sunshine to take clipboards outside and explore to see what we could find. The children were set challenges to find things that were different colours before having a go at drawing them!
