Year 1

26.02.20 - KS1 had a brilliant time exploring Warwick Castle in the sunshine today. We saw knights on horses, birds of prey, armour and arrows being made and lots of periodic clothing. We had a great time investigating the features of Warwick castle and matching them to the ones we have learnt about in history. We even had time to tackle the Horrible Histories Maze at the end of the day, which was a great adventure. The children behaved impeccably and it was a pleasure to see them so enthusiastic and inquisitive. What an exciting day!

25.02.20 - Today is Pancake Day and Year 1 had great fun following a recipe that told them how much flour, milk and eggs to mix together to make the perfect pancakes! They concentrated hard on the mixing part to ensure their batter was the perfect consistency. But if you ask them, I'm sure they will tell you that EATING the pancakes was the best part of the morning.

We also had a discussion about why we make pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and have decided as a class that we will each be choosing a value that we would like to try harder to show at school and at home, from now until the end of Lent. It was a super discussion to finish off a very exciting morning!

Have a look at what we will be learning about this term...

9.12.19 - This week in Maths, we have been learning about position and direction. We explored the different language we can use to describe position, direction and movement by verbally guiding our partners around an obstacle course. We had great fun telling them when to turn left and right, go in-between, around or near and up or down, forwards or backwards. Some of us even began to ask their partners to make whole, half and three quarter turns in both directions. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, which inspired some excellent learning from the class.

3.12.19 - Today in Year 1 we made our own afternoon snack... vegetable soup! We peeled and chopped parsnips, carrots, swede and onions (making sure to have a cheeky taste of each vegetable), before boiling them altogether and adding chopped tomatoes, beans and vegetable stock to make a deliciously healthy snack for the whole class. It received rave reviews and the children were extremely proud of what they had achieved.

19.11.19 - Our attempt at making bowls from the Autumn leaves that cover our playground, did not go as planned. Although we used copious amounts of glue and only picked the best leaves from the bunches that we collected, the leaves didn't want to stick onto the balloon. However, we had great fun trying, and our lack of success lead to a big conversation about why it is ok for some things not to work out how we intended, and how we can plan to do better next time.

15.11.19 - The Rickshaw Challenge flew by in a few seconds but we were all there to wave them on their way down to London. Year 1 and the rest of Haynes behaved impeccably whilst waiting at the roadside and I couldn't be prouder of them.

The toy, book and cake sale was a huge success and our overall total raised for Children in Need was an amazing £450! Wow! 

A big, big thank you to all of the parents who walked with us down to the edge of Haynes or helped set up the stalls in the hall, it was a brilliant morning. Also, a big thank you to all of the children who picked a toy or a book to donate, there were some very generous children in Year 1.

4.11.19 - In Science, Year 1 have been identifying and labelling parts of the human body. This week we have explored which part of the body is associated with each sense and have had great fun exploring how we use our five senses. 

The children had one of their senses taken away (sight) and were tasked with guessing what different objects were, using their other senses. They enjoyed exploring pasta and peas by taste, shaving foam and pumpkins by touch, water and shells by sound, vanilla and vinegar by smell and objects around the classroom by sight.

Autumn 2 - Welcome back Year 1! I hope you have all had a fantastic half term and a well deserved rest. We have a lot of things to look forward to in the week ahead with Diwali celebrations on Tuesday, Halloween on Thursday, the PTA Halloween Disco on Friday and I'm sure you will be watching some fireworks over the weekend, I know it will be!

Please make sure you stay safe and wrap up warm if you are venturing outside after school this week, it is getting very cold at night. 

15.10.11 - KS1 had great fun dressing up for Space Day this week. The effort that went into the children's costumes was 'out of this world'. The whole school were amazed by the amazing aliens, the awesome astronauts, the robust rockets and the perfect planets.

In the afternoon, the children were able to take their parents to view the excellent work that was created during space week. There were kitchen roll rockets, modroc planets, space mechanisms, Neil Armstrong fact files, fizzing planet experiment write-ups, rock-cakes and planet headbands to look at. All of the parents and staff were extremely impressed with the quality of the work produced. Well done to everyone who helped make Space Day such a success.

8.10.19 - Today, the children were learning about odd and even numbers in Maths. We were very excited to have some parents join us for the Watch Me Learn session and the children were eager to show off their Math knowledge. The class were extremely proud of the odd and even ice cream cones that they created and we have put them up on display around the classroom.

1.10.11 - Today, KS1 completed their modroc planets. These have taken a few lessons to construct as we first had to layer modroc onto a balloon and leave it to dry for a week, before we could start to paint them. The children had a lot of fun dunking the modroc strips in water and then rubbing them onto the balloons, but they had to be very, very gentle or the balloon would go POP!

Once they were dry, the children used a photo of their planet to choose the correct colour to paint the modroc. They learnt to mix white with a colour to lighten it, or to mix two colours together to make a different colour entirely. We all had lots of messy fun and can't wait to show the parents our perfect planets on Space Day (15.10.11).

24.09.19 - This week is Walk or Bike to School Week. On Tuesday it was Year 1's turn to ride their bikes or scooters around the playground but, unfortunately the rain forced us into the hall. However, we still had lots of fun showing off our cycling/scootering skills to our classmates and even had time to learn about the importance of wearing a helmet when riding a bike or a scooter.

18.09.19 - In Maths today, we ventured outside the classroom and into the sunshine. We used chalk to draw a long line on the playground and then wrote the numbers 0-20 to make our very own number line. The children had a lot of fun deciding where the numbers need to go and some even managed to add on to their number line and count up to 50! When the rain came later that afternoon, we were very sad to see our number lines wash away, but we know that we still have the number line knowledge in our heads.

Our first week in Year 1:

A warm welcome back to our new Year 1 children. It has been a very busy first week.

We had great fun exploring the woods for mini beasts, starting to learn about the world and the seven continents that it is made up of, and sitting around a camp fire, singing songs and eating s'mores. What a great start to Year 1!

We are looking forward to seeing you all back on Monday.

MyMaths

 

Year 1's MyMaths homework will be set each Friday to be completed by the following Friday.

 

This gives you a week to access the task, practise as necessary and as frequently as you would like, and then complete the questions for the homework section. We will be able to see when you have completed the task and how well you have got on which will help us to know if you might need a little bit more help. You can complete the questions more than once if you would like to try to improve your score. If you have any questions - please ask.
