Hello and welcome to Year 1's class page
We love to challenge ourselves independently and we are always trying to stretch our fantastic, elastic brains! We are resilient learners which means that we never give up, even if we find something really tricky.
In Year 1 we have two classes 1NR and 1CB. Our teachers are called Miss Rick and Mrs Black, and we have three Learning Support Assistants called Miss Christie, Mrs Carden, Mrs Manning.
We have chosen some websites which we would like to go on at home. These will help us with our learning, some of them are games / activities and others are songs.

Topic Launch Day - Pirates
On Tuesday, we introduced our new Topic of Pirates. We had a great time making pirates from paper plates, creating colourful parrots that can sit on our arms, looking at new pirate books, writing captions and following instructions to find the treasure.
Yew class had a fantastic time at Forest School this morning. We used a compass to find North, East, South and West, we blind folded our partners and lead them to trees for them to feel and describe. We also used natural resources to make a map of our school and finally we played hide and seek. Thank you parent helpers and Mr Manning for such a fun morning.
Home Learning Projects!
All we can say is WOW! So much time, effort and creativity has gone into the 'Giant' themed projects! Thank you :)
We had great fun this afternoon getting crafty for Diwali on Wednesday 7th November 2018. All the adults even had a go at doing Mendhi.
Walk to the Post Office
We enjoyed our walk to the post office in the glorious sunshine. We looked for different human and physical features and posted our letter to the local councillor Dan Cohen. Our letter was about recycling in Alwoodley.
The Big Recycling Challenge
We had so much fun making our plastic bottle fish for The Big Recycling Challenge exhibition on Thursday 11th October.
In Maths so far this half term we have been ordering numbers, representing numbers in different ways, writing numerals and number words and finding the the missing numbers. We have also been trying hard to explain our answers to problems using reasoning challenges.
In Art this week we drew our self portraits and made our faces out of objects from around the classroom.
Our first week in Year 1
We have had a great start to the year and have enjoyed getting to know our classroom and all our new routines! We have been challenging ourselves independently in the different areas, which include Toca Builders, Mr Maker, Snuggles and Roleplay.
The first Science Lesson!
In our groups we drew round one of our friends so that we had the shape of the human body. After that we labelled the different body parts, we could name parts such as hips, ankle and elbow. As a challenge we thought about why we need our different body parts and what job they do. Independently, we made the human body with playdough and drew a picture of ourselves in the summer holidays.
