Y1 Robin

We Are Fixperts!

During National Science Week, we decided to solve real life problems for real people by using empathy as the motivating factor.

We planned, designed and made prototypes...

We carried out trial and error, tested our designs and improved them...

We worked in teams to make a product and evaluated the whole process - just take a look at the amazing enquiry-based learning that took place!

Show and Tell for this half term

Letters went out on Friday for show and tell for this half term. One of the Year 1 reading targets is to be able to recite and perform a poem. We have given the children 4 poems to choose from and ask them to perform or recite this poem in the Show and Tell slot. The dates for Y1 Robin are a Thursday; we intend to start on a Thursday and finish on a Friday. If you do not have a copy of the show and tell letter please come and let me know. I will post the dates below for each table group starting from Thursday 21st March.

Year 1 Spellings

 

We have had a few questions relating to the spellings we have sent out since January and wanted to clarify what the colours mean and the different spellings.

We started the year off with the “common exception words” (words which cannot be decoded) and have now moved to the RWInc spellings. These spellings link to the book your child has been reading throughout the week and are, in general, related to the focus sound of that book and are phonetically decodable. Each teacher sends a set for their group, so it is important to come back to the teacher if you do not have spellings, or think you have the wrong ones. Due to the number of groups we are now running, there are 2 different sets of “yellow” and “blue” spellings and 1 set of orange spellings coming home. We hope this is clear and are sorry for any confusion caused. Please come and ask the class teacher if you need any further information.

Thanks

Year 1 Christmas Production

The Year 1 Christmas play, A King is Born has been an absolute hit around school. The children have worked very hard on learning their lines, their instrument or their dance and have performed it brilliantly to pupils in school and the Year 1 parents. Thank you once again to all parents and carers for their support from home, with lines and providing some superb costumes. We have posted some photographs of our budding actors and band members to share with you all.

 

Year One Trip to the Museum of Science and Industry

 

On Wednesday 31st October, Year One had a fantastic time at MOSI, supporting our learning in History and Science.  We enjoyed two sessions in the Power Hall; the first one taking part in an interactive display watching a hundred year old engine at work and the second workshop called 'Loco-motion'. The children watched the 'explainers' travel back in time and figure out how to work the steam engine 'Pender'!

 

The children also watched an exciting demonstration on electricity, looked at the old transport to support our History topic and had fun exploring the experiment section.

 

Take a look at all the learning that took place...

Picture 1

Trip to MOSI

We hope you all have a super half term break. Just a reminder that we will be going to MOSI on Wednesday 31st October when we return after the break.

We have sent out slips to parent helpers, thank you for all of the offers of help, we really do appreciate it. Please check your child's bag if you have not received the slip.

Please remember to send the children into school in their uniform, with their lunch and drink in a plastic bag with their name on it. 

Have a super half term off and we look forward to seeing everyone back in school on Tuesday 30th October.

 

Welcome to Year 1!

The Year 1 team would like to welcome our new children and families and congratulate the children on making such a smooth transition from Reception into Year 1; we will be continuing this transition over the coming weeks. The children have settled into their classes and new routines really well and we are so pleased to see their enthusiasm for learning and their kind and helpful attitudes. 

On this class page, you will be able to find out about what we have been and what we will be learning about in Year 1 Robin.

Save the date

Please keep Wednesday 26th September free as we will be hosting a welcome meeting for Year 1 from 4:30pm - 5:30pm. More details will follow.

 

Thank you for your continued support from home. We are really looking forward to the year ahead and all the super learning which will be taking place.

Our Class Charter

At the start of a new school year, it is a good idea to think about all the behaviour we should see in our classroom to become superstar learners. We talked about one of the four British values: the rule of law; which helps to keep us safe and happy and linked this with our school rules when we created our class charter which we all signed.

Art and Colour Mixing

We have started our first Art topic, which focuses on colour mixing. The children made their own colour wheel, with the primary colours in the middle and the secondary colours we can create when mixing two primary colours together. We also watched a fun video which helped us to know what these colours are. 

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
