Always Children Autumn 2

Anna Head (a.head) on: Year 1 Blog

I had the pleasure of spending my lunchtime with 18 'always' children from Years 1,2 and 3 today. These children were picked by their class teacher as children who always do the right thing and always put in 100% effort. We enjoyed a lovely lunch with some treats and played some party games.

A big well done to Sam, Sam, Vincent, Daniel, Lucy, Cherish, Eve, Phoebe, Joshua, Millie-Rose, Sienna, Maddison, Oliver, Oliver, Ava, Connie, Harvey and Isaac.

Merry Christmas everyone!

We have started sending home a few spellings connected to the words and sounds we are learning in phonics.  These will be stuck in your child's reading record on a Monday evening. If you can support your child with learning to spell these words, that would be great. We will see how they do on Fridays. Thank you. 

Tricky words (these don’t have a spelling pattern)

Phonics words (split a-e and split e-e)









 To help us make sure everyone gets a copy of these each week, please can you ensure your child brings their reading book and record book to school every day.

New Year _ Spring Term

Anna Head (a.head) on: Year 1 Blog

We hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year and that you are all feeling raring to go this week!

Our topic this half term is Frozen, we will be learning about polar regions, polar explorers as well as the people whom live there.

In Literacy we will be focusing in instructional writing and creating fact files about Polar animals. In maths we will be working on our addition and subtraction facts, learning how to count on when adding. Our Science focus will be on different materials.

This week is Healthy Schools Week at Gildersome.  We will be learning about eating healthily and being physical active is good for us. Please have a look at the Change 4 life information attached.

A couple of notices:

1B and 1P will have PE on a  Monday and Tuesday for this half term, please ensure your child has their named kit in school on these days.

If you have an inhaler still at home from over the holidays please can you ensure these are returned if your child still requires an inhaler.

Please send your child to school with their Reading Record  EVERYDAY as they will read with an adult during the week on any given day.

Thank you

Mrs Paling, Mrs Broadwell, Mrs Moore and Mrs Head

Science Investigations

Anna Head (a.head) on: Year 1 Blog

In Science this half term we have been looking at how plants change over time and have set up some experiments to watch over the next few weeks. We planted some peas and a hyacinth bulb.  So far we have seen some changes - but no flowers!

In groups we set up our own broad bean experiment. One group had no soil, another soil,water and sunshine, the third, soil, sunshine but no water and the fourth soil, water but no light.

The children are recording what changes they notice. Please talk to your child about what we did and what they have spotted so far.
