Weekly Review:

Week ending 24th September

Another lovely week of laughter and learning in Year 1. This week the children have enjoyed the full range of the curriculum and had lessons in Computing, RE, PE, Music, Dance, Science, Geography, Art and PSHE. This has been complemented by focus group work tasks in English and Maths. We have also been to our first Showing Assembly and celebrated our ‘Always Children’ for the first time this year.   

English -  This week we continued looking at the book ‘Look Up!’. We learnt all about meteor showers. We talked about what we already knew about them and asked questions to pinpoint what we wanted to learn about them. We collectively researched and found out the answers as a whole class. The children then wrote facts about meteor showers.

Maths – Our Maths Meetings continued this week with us looking at the different ways that we can make a number by adding two numbers together.  The meetings still contained a wide range of other mathematical skills, including number recognition, one more and one less, number bonds, subitising, shapes and pattern.

PHSE – This week our focus was on families and each child drew and wrote about their own family.

Vocabulary –This week our vocabulary words were, gulp, devour, tired, drowsy and exhausted. Topic specific vocabulary included near, far, location, map, meteor shower and flyer.

PE & Dance -  1D has Dance on Tuesday and PE on Friday so will need their PE kits on these days, while 1C has PE on Wednesday so will need their kits then.  Children can come to school wearing their kits on PE days and will get changed as part of the PE lesson.

For this half-term 1C will be having Music on Tuesday while 1D have Dance and this will swap next half-term.

Unfortunately Year 1 does not have any spare clothes to lend to children to wear if they have an accident. If you have any spare at home, please do send them our way. Thank you!

The Big Ravenstone Welcome - Please join the staff and families of Ravenstone as we kick off the new school year on Monday 27th September from 3.20pm. Year 6 are running the cake stall and supporting the pancake stall to fundraise for their leavers year. 

Have a lovely weekend.
