In Literacy we have been writing about the Little Red Hen.

Here is an example of some fantastic handwriting in Year 1! As a class we discussed what we liked about this piece of work, in particular we noticed there were capital letters, full stops, one verb and some adjectives. The children have been working in partners to talk through their sentences and gather ideas.

Next week we will be learning about farms and making our own farm animals out of playdough. This is to inspire us for when we write our innovated stories the following week!

Special Visit to Ezra Class

On Friday we were visited by the Leyton Orient Trust who ran an accessible sports lesson.

We were so lucky to develop our coordination, football and general P.E. skills with these amazing coaches. We also practiced new ones from them, such as passing and receiving a ball, dribbling and ball control.

Remembrance Day

Today we were celebrating Remembrance Day at school. On Friday we will have a minute silence to remember all those who fought and lost their lives in the war. We learnt about poppies and their significance and decorated our own.

We enjoyed talking about what we know about the First World War. Please share your knowledge with us at home and we can tell the class what we have learnt.

The Little Red Hen Year 1

In Literacy we have started our new story. We were lucky enough to be visited by the Little Red Hen who had run away from her farm. We practiced forming questions to ask the Little Red Hen. Then we spoke about all of the emotions she might have felt when her friends didn’t help. We thought of these words all by ourselves!

Challenge : Use one of our emotion words at home with your parents…!

Playground monitors in Year 1

Yesterday we elected three playground monitors in Year 1. They will have an important role during break and lunchtimes, making sure that children are being kind, safe and inclusive.

After break times, they will meet to discuss and report positive behaviour in the playground to staff and reward those children who were showing positive behaviour.

The children reported some really interesting feedback today, thank you very much!

Children’s Book Project Year 1

Today we have been so excited to choose any two books donated by the Children’s Book Project to take home. Reading is so important and even more important is loving it as well! We love having the opportunity to choose books ourselves, because when we like a book we get lost in our imaginations…

Please ask us lots of questions about the books that we bring home and help us to feel excited about reading!

Black History Month in Year 1

At school we have been learning about inspirational people to celebrate Black History Month. On Friday, we learnt about Martin Luther King Junior’s iconic ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.

We spoke about our dreams and aspirations and what they mean to us. We learnt about the meaning of the word ‘equality’.

What a fun day!

Learning about our Emotions!

In PSHE, we have been learning about our emotions, we talked about the different types of emotions and in what situations we feel them. Then we learnt about the ‘Zones of Regulation’ – green, yellow, blue and red. We are always striving to be in the green zone but we understand that often we are not. We are learning strategies to deal with negative emotions when we experience them.

We would love to discuss what the different zones mean with our parents at home!

The Month of Mary

In Year 1 we have been celebrating the month of Mary! We enjoyed going to St Mary’s Garden to say our Hail Marys with the Rosary beads.

We spoke about how our faith is a precious gift and what it means to each of us. It was very special to pray together in front of a statue of Mary.
