Year 1 Hub

Here you can find out more about what we’ve been up to in our Year 1 classes and see what is planned over coming weeks. Don’t forget to take a look at our news stories in main news section too!

Our latest topic is ‘Toy Story’  – Monday 4th November to Friday 6th December 2019

This topic will give the children opportunities to explore toys from the past and how toys have changed over the years as well as make our own toys and games.  We will be using our historical enquiry skills to inform our leaning.

We will explore toys old and new and discuss the similarities and differences.  We will use this information to support our literacy learning.

We will also be writing our own version of a toy adventure story.

Some highlights of the the topic will include

  • Exploring old toys
  • Writing about toys
  • Developing our creative thinking skills by considering toy adventures
  • Making traditional board games

We are holding a Year 1 Parent Workshop on Tuesday 3rd December at  2.30pm – Come and join your child to make a board game such as Snakes and Ladders, Ludo or even create your own!

We will provide card, paper, glue and scissors, please bring anything else that your child would like to use to create their game. 

Please see the attached link for this half term’s Home Learning Challenge.  This will also be sent out via Parentmail and a paper copy sent home with each child.
