Year 1 – Rabbit

Welcome to Year 1, this year finds us starting the National Curriculum.

Suddenly we are very busy with Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, D&T, Music, RE and PE.

We follow the letters and sounds approach for phonics and use Oxford Reading Tree Scheme for Reading.

Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like more information about the curriculum.

  • Measuring!

    We’ve had another busy week in Rabbit class. In maths, we have been looking at different measures. We have been using rulers and weighing scales to help us.

    In English we have continued with our story, ‘Where’s my teddy?’ and we have acted out the story with our puppets.

  • Wild Flowers

    This week in science we have been continuing with our topic on plants. We learnt about different wild flowers and went on a hunt around the school to see how many we could find. 

    We have also been learning about coins in maths. We have enjoyed identifying the different coins and using them to make different amounts of money.

  • First week back

    We’ve had a super first week back and have been very busy. We are looking at plants in science and this week we have planted our own beans. We’ve made sure they are being watered and have some sunlight to help them grow.

    We have also been looking at some special books in RE. We have looked at the Bible, the Qur’an and the Torah and we shared why these books are special to some of us.

  • A busy week!

    We have had a lovely week and worked very hard. In maths we have been looking at part whole models and finding which is the whole, which is the part and which part is missing. We have been writing number sentences using our part whole model.
    We have enjoyed reading Farmer Duck in English and had fun sharing books together and practising our reading.
  • Four Seasons

    This week we have finished our science topic on ‘seasonal changes’. We played a science game where we tried to match the pictures to the season. 
    We have also been busy practising our Christmas play for you all to see! 

  • Young designers

    Rabbits have been designing  their own playground equipment. This week we explored different ways of joining parts to make them move.  Now we just need to make them a bit stronger!

  • Exploring the outside

    This week we had a special multi-skills PE lesson and we worked really hard to improve our agility. 
    In science we went outside to explore the playground area for signs of Autumn.
  • Food for the Gruffalo!

    This week in English we went outside to make some food for the Gruffalo. We used our sounds to label our dishes.
    In Science we became weather forecasters. We thought about what the weather may be like at this time of year.
  • Sporty Children in Need day

    Rabbits have had such an active day today! We have spent the day learning new physical skills and games, including hockey and speed stacking, whilst raising money for children in need.  We’ve also been learning about good sportsmanship and the importance of being a humble winner or a gracious loser!

  • Working hard

    In maths this week we have been learning to find the parts and whole of a cherry model using addition and subtraction.
    In handwriting we have been working hard on our letter formation. We practised the letter s, e, q and f from our curly caterpillar family.
