Hello Year One!

 

I hope you are all well and are enjoying the posts on this page! Remember anything you do can be stuck into your home learning book to show me when you return! 
 

I hope you are spending lots of time outdoors in this lovely weather! 
 

I’ve just uploaded another scavenger hunt that you can do in your garden or on a walk! 
 

Stay safe and healthy see you soon!

Dough disco

Still image for this video
‘Dough Disco’ is a fun activity which combines the use of play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control. The movements develop children’s fine and gross motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem. The overall aim is to ultimately support children’s hand writing skills.

You will need:
1 cup of cold water
1 cup of salt
2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
3 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of corn flour
Food colouring

Instructions
Gather together all your ingredients.
Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and then slowly add water.
Mix until it forms a nice dough.
It should now be easy to pick up and mould – add more flour if it is too sticky and more water if it is too dry.
Knead it well with your hands to get all the food colouring to blend in.
Then the fun begins! You can store your play dough in an airtight container when you have finished playing.
You can add food colouring to your play dough and even a sprinkle of glitter to make it sparkly. Add a drop or two of essential oils to make it fragranced or grains of rice for texture. Have fun experimenting with different additions.

Some of you maybe at home now, self isolating. Remember, staying active has been scientifically proven to benefit your mood and overall well being, thanks to the ‘happy hormone’ endorphins you release when you get your heart-rate up. This 5 minute move will keep you active and release those “happy hormones”.

Check back soon for another video to keep you moving and active!

LFH

LFH 1

The children will be coming home with home learning books soon which have some activities and sheets in for them to have a go at. Before that time I have made a list of activities, websites and resources that may prove helpful, informative and fun for you and your child while they are learning from home.

 

  • https://www.ictgames.com/ this has lots of fun games for KS1 children that work help support phonics and maths.
  • Purple mash- your child has their own log in for this in the back of their reading log. I have selected some activities for your children that they should be able to do independently, they will need help logging on.
  • Mathletics - your child has their own log in for this in the back of their reading log. I have selected some activities for your children that they should be able to do independently, they will need help logging on.
  • https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ - this has interactive resources to support phonics teaching, you do not have to pay or subscribe, follow the links to free resources.
  • https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize this has lots of great information and games. We have been using it for Geography where the children have been learning about the UK and farming.
  • https://www.phonicsbloom.com/ this has some free resources which will support children learning their phonics sounds.
  •  

I will be posting information and tasks to this page so please keep checking back here regularly. Any work that the children completely can be stuck into their home learning books so they can show me when they return.

 

I hope you all stay healthy and happy. Remember that although some of us may be ill, isolated or feeling sad. We are still a big Clatford family! We'll all be back to school together before you know it!

Reading in Year One

Still image for this video
Reading is so important in Year One, we try to read a story every day. Today Ava wanted to read to the class. She picked the book The Ugly Five by Julia Donaldson. She read with such enthusiasm and expression and even turned the book to show the class the pictures like a real teacher! I think I'll be out of a job soon, well done Ava!

Algorithms with our Robot

Algorithms with our Robot   1
This week we had a special visitor come to see us in Year One to help us learn about algorithms. This jam sandwich making robot was very naughty and taught children the importance of clear and direct instructions. When the robot didn't do what we wanted we had to debug our algorithm and start again.

Welcome back to Year One, we hope you had a lovely and restful Christmas break! This half term we are lucky enough to have Mr Bailey-Hobbs join us for six weeks; he is doing his teacher training and is excited to learn about Key Stage One.

Our new topic is Fantastic Fairy Tales where we will be learning about traditional tales and their characters.

What love means to Year One

As part of our amazing animals topic the children made an animal of their choice. Some children recreated an existing animal like a cat, a tiger or giraffe. Some children creatively chose their favourite parts of different animals to create a super animal!

We are so impressed with all of the creations and have created a little zoo in the corner of the classroom. The children used their geography skills to decide which habitat their animal would live in!

This week, to celebrate International Peace day on the 21st September, we made our own symbols for peace! 

This linked nicely with our RE topic (Bread as a symbol) and the children brought so many great ideas to the class discussion.

We considered what peace was and how we could capture that in a symbol! The children were really proud of what they created and these symbols are now hung with pride in the quiet garden!

Year One builds upon the children’s experiences from Year R.  The classroom is still mobile but activities are often teacher-led and involve the children in working with an adult or independently.  Learning friends help children to recognise the kind of learner that they are.

 

In the mornings, the children have a literacy or maths lesson and then phonics before lunch. In the afternoon the focus changes to topic and science work. The children also have an indoor and outdoor P.E lesson, music, R.E and ICT skills lessons.  Our topic this half term is Amazing Animals, which is a science and geography topic. Children will also have daily handwriting lessons and will do “funky finger” exercises to help their fine motor skills!

 

In Year One we want the children to be happy and enjoy their learning.  We encourage the children to be polite, reflective, to behave well, and to support and respect each other. Children are also rewarded with team points and certificates. On Friday afternoons, they have Golden Time which is a time when they can play. As a class they are collecting marbles in a pot, once they have collected all of the marbles they will have a class reward, which the children will choose.

 

The children’s learning is reinforced through homework.  The children practise spellings, during the week, and complete a maths, literacy or topic based piece of weekend homework. In addition, they take home reading books which they choose themselves.

 

During this term children will visit Marwell Zoo.  Next half term they will take part in the Christmas play alongside Year 2.

This week we have started our new English topic and we are looking at the book The Gingerbread Man. We used all of our senses today to describe the gingerbread man. We enjoyed this lesson, especially when we got to eat the gingerbread man!

Fun in Phonics

In Year One we have been trying to find new ways to help us learn all of our phonic sounds. We do phonics every day in small groups and this week we have been using the aqua beads and letters to help us spell and apply our sounds! The children loved getting to play with the water beads and spelt a variety of common exception words.

Acive Maths

This week we came to the end of our art topic. This half term we have learned how to weave, we learned about the warp and weft and practised with paper. Today we got to put it all into practise when we made a new dress for Cinderella to wear to the ball. The children picked their own materials and put their weaving skills in effect. The results are beautiful and each Cinderella is well and truly ready for the ball!

Barnaby Bear

The children have been working very hard in music to learn the songs ready for the big sing. Here is a short video of our day at The Anvil. Everyone enjoyed singing along with Barnaby and hearing his story about a pirate and his missing treasure.
We took our own bears, who also enjoyed the trip!

Crime Scene Do Not Cross

Crime Scene Do Not Cross 1

This half term we have started a new topic, Fantastic Fairytales. We have looked at traditional tales and alternative versions. 

 

When we arrived at school last week, the outdoor area had been changed into a crime scene. There was lots for us to look at and different clues for us to examine! The police came in to question us to help find the criminal! 

Sprout Boy by Year One

Still image for this video
When these children tried sprouts they liked them and chose to write their poem as "everyone likes a sprout"

This week the children finished their Sprout Boy poems. Here some Year One children have shared their ideas to create their own Christmas video inspired by Sprout Boy. The children have worked very hard on these poems and they have been very successful.

Panto Day

A little vlog of our day at the panto, watching Snow White!

Sprout Boy meets a galaxy of stars

In English, in the lead up to Christmas, we have used the video “Sprout Boy” to inspire our writing. We have watched the video and have been considering the vocabulary choices and learning about rhyme.

We have also had the chance to taste sprouts, to decide whether our poem will be about loving sprouts or hating them! The children were brilliant and nearly all of them tried a sprout, many of them were surprised when they liked them! Many of them went back for SECONDS!

Fire Service

On Tuesday 11th December we were lucky enough to have the fire service come to visit us, we spent the morning in class with them playing games and learning about how to keep ourselves safe. After break we had the chance to visit the fire engine and have a go at putting out a fire! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and particularly enjoyed spraying Miss Bridgman!

Marwell Zoo

On the 15th of October we went on a class trip to Marwell Zoo as part of our Amazing Animals topic. While we were there we were looking at Fur, Feathers and Scales. We used what we had learned in science to classify these animals into mammals, birds and reptiles. The animals were clearly not perturbed by the rain and we saw lots of different animals whilst walking around the zoo.

When we got back to class, the children wrote postcards home about our day at the zoo and enjoyed looking through the photos we all took.

Snail and the Whale

Snail and the Whale 1
Snail and the Whale 2

On Monday the 8 October a beach washed up on the shores of Year One’s outdoor area! Miss Bridgman was the first to notice the strange scene and asked the children to take a closer look. Upon inspection James spotted that a glass bottle had washed up onto the beach, inside the bottle was a message from a tiny snail who had taken a trip on the tail of a whale.

 

The children were eager to begin learning all about the snails adventures. More information about the snail and the whale will be posted here so check back soon!
