School is Cool!

We have been exploring 2d shapes and their properties. In Literacy we have been continuing our work on rhyming words and we have been using the words to write poems about school. We have been using the beebots to give directions. We used the mirrors to draw self-portraits. We are looking forward to making soup tomorrow to celebrate the Harvest.



Children are starting to learn about wild animals in French

Wild animals – vocabulary





Happy learning and singing,

Madame Annis

United We Stand!

We have been identifying and writing rhyming words in preparation for poetry next week. In Maths we have been recording and solving number bonds to ten and twenty. We worked with a friend to trace the United Kingdom and we then labelled the countries. In Phonics we have been revising the tricky words; please continue this at home.

Chers Parents!

I hope you have all had a good summer. Year 1 children have been revising numbers and colours and our vocabulary topic this week was farm animals. Here are some links to some videos to help your child practise these topics at home whilst having fun


Forever Friends!

In Literacy we have been labelling, writing captions and describing our friends. In Maths we have been using a range of resources to solve addition number sentences. We learnt the vital organ names and labelled a picture of the body. We painted a picture and described our favourite places to go in St Albans.

Home Sweet Home

In Literacy we have been drawing ourselves and our families. We then labelled the pictures and wrote sentences describing ourselves and our families. In Maths we have been looking at more and less. We talked about where we live and who we live with. We have been naming the bones in Science. In P.E. we have learning throwing and catching skills. We have also been working with a partner to balance and travel.

Me, Myself and I

The topic this term is Me, Myself and I. We have had such a busy week! In Literacy we have been looking at using capital letters and full stops in sentences. In Maths we have been ordering and writing numbers. We have been matching the quantity to the number. We used the mirrors to do self-portraits. We used our senses to touch, taste, smell, see and hear different things.



Not long left to go….

We are sad to be wrapping up the children’s first year at school, but extremely proud and happy to see how much they have grown and learned.

The children have been practising for sports day next week, we look forward to seeing you all on the field!

We are trying to keep the children on their toes with some mental maths! In Literacy we have explored story writing. We will send some ideas home at the end of the year to support their continued learning throughout the summer and ensure they are ready for year one.

As part of our topic we have been learning about creatures from dinosaurs and monster to dragons. The children are continuing to listen to different stories in Literacy and responding with some writing. This week we read Dragon Stew and the children thought of their own stew ingredients. As part of our Faith and Belief lessons we are now talking about important people. The children have had opportunities to write thank you letters to people that are important to them. In Maths we recapped the properties of 2D shapes and are learning about 3D shapes.

What ‘Wild Things’ they are!

This week the children have been exploring distance in Maths. The children measured out different distances in metres, as targets for when throwing beanbags. In Literacy we have been writing speech bubbles for the narrative; ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ This week we have also introduced formal handwriting sessions to get them ready for Year One. We have been writing our tricky words as extra spelling practice.
