Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. We are very excited to begin Key Stage One and are looking forward to further developing our learning through a range of exciting opportunities throughout the year. Mrs Storer is our teacher, and we are also lucky enough to have Mrs Walker working with us in our class!

Term 1 & 2 – Where in the World are we?  Knowledge Organiser

Term 2 –What a busy term! We have continued to demonstrate a fantastic attitude towards our learning and shown perseverance if we find anything tricky.

As part of our Geography topic, we have been exploring the village of Hutton and enjoyed going out for a walk to spot things of importance in the village.  We braved some very cold and windy weather and have drawn sketches of some of the places we visited. We have also been learning about the countries that make up the United Kingdom and where they are on the map.

Early in term 2 we enjoyed a trip to the cinema to watch How to Train your Dragon. This was a fabulous morning and we have written some super recounts to tell you all about our trip. We hope you enjoy reading them.

In the lead up to Christmas we have of course been learning songs for our Nativity with Year 2 and learning about why Christmas is so special to Christians. We are looking forward to performing to the Friendship Circle of Hutton as well as our families.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and look forward to sharing our learning with you in Term 3.

Term 1 – Wow! We have been so busy in the first few weeks of Year 1. Mrs Storer and Mrs Walker are very impressed with our attitude towards our work and the perseverance we are showing.

We have begun this term down in the forest where nobody goes…..with The Gruffalo! We have enjoyed listening to the story and creating our very own monsters who we imagine we might meet in the forest. Our paintings show just how scary some of them are!

We have been working very hard at thinking of adjectives to describe the characters in The Gruffalo and drew story maps to help us remember the correct order when we re – tell the story. We think we did a fantastic job and hope you agree.

In our maths work we have been busy sorting and counting. We are learning to count forwards as well as backwards and are just beginning to explore place value and understand why we write our numbers as we do.

We have also had a visit from Mrs Rees from Churchill Secondary School. She came to visit and teach us a dance based on The Seasons. We began to learn the spring section of our dance and are working very hard to master this, ready for her next visit when we will learn the summer part of the dance. Everybody really enjoyed this session and Mrs Rees was very impressed with our behaviour and dance skills.
