This year in year 1 we have 3 classes bursting with enthusiasm, excitement and lots of challenges to help us in our learning. Our teachers are Miss Butler, Miss Cain, and Miss Smith, and our classes are 1B, 1C and 1S. We also have lots of help from our teaching assistants who are Mr McDonald, Mrs Begum, and Mrs Plant.
We have a super busy term filled with lots of exciting trips, activities and learning. In English we are focusing on Traditional Tales. We are reading lots of stories and showing off our impressive writing skills by creating story maps, speech bubbles, and even a wanted poster to help catch that pesky Goldilocks, who is hiding in the forest.
In Maths we are building on our knowledge of number, we are looking at counting forwards and backwards, writing our numbers correctly, and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s!
In Geography we are focusing on our local community. We will be looking at our local area and what makes Kensington so great!
In R.E we have been looking at rules. We have had lots of discussion on what makes a good rule, what rules we use in school, at home, and looked at how the law is made up of lots of rules to keep us safe. The children have enjoyed participating in creating their own class rules.
Our PE lessons are every Wednesday morning. We love our lessons with Mr Harris and Mr O'Shea!
We had a lovely day at Techniquest, exploring materials and taking part in exciting activities. Visit our gallery page to see our pictures.
Year One have been on a trip to Tesco this week.
We were finding numbers in the environment as well as doing some shopping for our traditional tale characters.
Whilst we were there, we used our shopping lists to find different fruits and vegetables as well exciting items for Goldilocks and the Gingerbread Man.
We then got to take a look at where the gingerbread men lived in Tesco and when we got back to class we even had time to decorate our very own gingerbread man to take home! Have a look at some of our very exciting photos from our day...
