Sandwiches for Beegu!

We have had an extremely exciting day today!

First of all, we made a shopping list of the things that we needed for our picnic.

We then went to Aldi and chose everything that we needed and then we even had the chance to scan our own items through the tills! HOW EXCITING!!

We came back to school and made our amazing sandwiches – made with our own choice of filling and salad.

This afternoon, we had a picnic with our teddies, however, the noise was a little bit too much for Beegu so she didn’t want to come. Beegu left us a note asking if we would save her some of our sandwiches – so we did!!

Busy week!

This week has been super busy in Year 1W!

We have been working extremely hard learning all about volume and capacity.

We have been solving problems and using vocabulary such as:

Full, empty, half full, nearly empty, more and less.

In English, we have been considering Beegu’s feelings and looking at the clues that tell us how she feels.

On Wednesday, we had an amazing afternoon.

We went to Robin Park for a multi skills event.

Well done to all of the children, you all were so well behaved and I am very proud of you.

Well done to our certificate winners – EV & JG.

Our attendance this week was 99.2%.

Have a lovely weekend. Miss Wallace xIMG_0976

This week, we have also been finding halves and quarters of amounts. We know that 2 halves make a whole and that 4 halves make a whole too!

We have been very busy in English, we have read a little bit more of our story and we have thought carefully about what Beegu might be saying to the rabbits, in her own language!

In DT we designed our own sandwiches for Beegu, we chose our favourite sandwich filling!

A brilliant week, with lots of amazing work from all of the children.

Well done to our certificate winners AK and JW!

Our attendance this week is 97.6%

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Wallace

What on EARTH has happened?

On Monday, year 1 had a message to say that some unusual activity was caught on our CCTV! We watched the footage and we went to investigate for ourselves. Down at the Dragon’s Den, we found what we believe to be a Spaceship crash landing!

The children did an excellent job at working out what all of the broken pieces were. Including:

  • Broken Sattelite
  • Broken landing legs
  • Launch Buttons
  • Moon Rocks
  • Rocket Boosters
  • Steering Sticks   and much more…

We came inside and discussed our findings. We have made predictions about who the Space ship could belong to and what caused it to crash.

In Maths, we have been counting in Multiples of 2, 5 and 10 and solving some really tricky problems.

Today, we did some sandwich tasting in DT. We talked about or favourite sandwiches and the ones that we do and do not like.


Well done to our certificate winners NB and LF.

Our attendance this week was 96%, lets see if we can get it back up next week!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Miss Wallace


Could you please check that all of your children’s items of shoes and clothing have their names on and that they have their own belongings? Sometimes, things get a little bit mixed up on PE days and in after school clubs.

Thank you.

Happy Half Term!

We have had such a brilliant week in year 1, we have been working extremely hard!

In Maths, we have been learning all about shapes and the shapes that we can see all around us.

We have been learning about suffixes and how adding -ing and -ed to the end of the word changes the meaning!

On Wednesday we went to the outdoor garden to make our Bug Hotels – however, the rain came down really heavy and we had to come back inside… BUT, on Thursday, we used the materials that we had collected to continue making our Bug Hotels. They looked absolutely fantastic!

Our attendance this week was 96.4%

I hope you all have a brilliant half term, I will see you all in a week – ready to learn lots more exciting things in year 1!

Miss Wallace

Fantastic Friday!

Wow, what an amazing week in year 1!

We have been retelling the story of the Bog Baby using time adverbials, conjunctions and amazing sentences!  We have all remembered to use capital letters and full stops in our sentences.

In Maths this week, we have been learning all about number bonds to 20 and subtraction facts within 20! It has been very tricky – but we were amazing as always!

In Science, we learnt all about the parts of a human body and our senses – we learnt ‘The Senses Song’ and had lots of fun exploring outside – we identified things that we could hear, taste, touch, see and smell! Maybe we could identify some of these things at home this weekend and write a list!

Well done to our certificate winners – our Star of the week LF and our Handwriter of the week JH!

We had a special award to give out in assembly today.. This week, the children took part in a year group competition to see who could throw and catch a ball the most amount of times – our winners were VB and JW who scored a massive 266 points. Well done!

Our attendance this week was 99.2%

We have one more week to go until half term – can we make it to 100% again?

Have a lovely weekend.

Miss Wallace

Maths Magicians!

This week we have all been working extremely hard in Maths. We have learnt all about addition and subtraction – how to add 2 numbers together and how to subtract one number from another.

We have been writing our own number sentences and have been solving word problems with addition and subtraction! WE ARE AMAZING!!

In English this week we have been retelling the story of the Bog Baby and sequencing the main events!

Today in science we created our own animal fact files using scientific vocabulary such as:

carnivore, herbivore, omnivore, bird, reptile, fish, mammal, amphibian!

Our attendance this week was 99.2% well done!!!

Well done to our certificate winners CT and RK

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Miss Wallace

Attendance super stars!

So this week we have been continuing to learn about the Bog Baby. We have been discussing the thoughts and feelings of all the characters from the story. We shared some fantastic vocabulary!

In Maths we have been learning all about length, height and weight!

We could order ourselves from the shortest to the tallest and talk about how we know.

We have also been placing animals into food groups - carnivore, herbivore and omnivore. We completed a venn diagram and shared all that we know with our partners.

This week our attendance was 100% AGAIN!! This is absolutely fantastic! Let’s see if we can keep this up for the rest of the half term – maybe we will get a treat!

Well done to our certificate winners AF and RP!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

All about the Bog Baby!

Last week we continued to learn all about the Bog Baby and the things that he likes to do!

We wrote our own fact files about the Bog Baby and included lots of facts from the story.




Can you guess what we were learning all about in Maths last week? Ask us if we can remember!

In Art we continued to look at the work of Pablo Picasso and we chose one of his line drawings to draw. We explored the different types of sketching pencils and chose our favourite one to sketch with. I think we have some little artists in the making!!

Our attendance last week was 98.4% – not quite the 100% that we had hoped for the third week in a row.. can we make it to 100% this week?

Well done to our Star of the week MR and our hand writer of the week AW!

Miss Wallace

Such a busy week!

We finally made it to Friday.. what an extremely hard working week we have had in year 1!

We have been writing some amazing sentences about the Bog Baby.. we have tried hard to remember to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

In Science we have been learning all about different animal groups including birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and mammals! Maybe you could ask us if we remember what they are!

We have continued counting up to 100 in Maths and have been solving tricky problems with numbers up to 100! We have all been amazing!

This week our attendance was 100% AGAIN! Absolutely amazing, can we keep this up for a third week?

Well done to our certificate winners FA and AD!
