Autumn 1: September - October

Music and Maths! - 13.9.21-17.9.21

Throughout the week year 1 worked very well on the challenges, particularly enjoying maths, where we looked at finding one more and one less of a given number. 


On Friday, year 1 enjoyed listening to a variety of music. We know that music is important for our mental wellbeing and so we discussed how the song made us feel. Once we had chosen our favourite song, we each drew a picture that expressed how it made us feel. 

A fantastic first week! - 6.9.21-10.9.21

1ZF and 1LM have had a great first week in year 1. We have had lots of fun exploring our new classroom and enjoyed being back with our friends. We are very excited for the year ahead and have already started completing some of our challenges. 

Miss Forster and Mr McLaughlin are already very impressed with the work both classes have completed! Well done year 1.
