Autumn 1

Superhero Me!


Welcome to our amazing topic!


During this term, we will be learning more about ourselves. We will learn about our families and homes, but will also look at how amazing, unique and individual we all are! Alongside this, we will learn about real life superheroes (for example, Doctors) and we will also look at some of our favourite comic superheroes too. 


All Hallow's, Halloween dress up and Wear it pink day!

Have a safe and happy half term holiday Year 1! You have all worked so hard over the last few weeks and thoroughly deserve a break.

English 21.10.20- Today, we wrote questions that we wanted to ask the main characters from our story 'Supertato'.

Maths 20.10.20- Today, we learnt about standard units for weight (grams g and kilograms kg). Then we had a go at making some biscuits. We had to weigh out the ingredients very carefully and follow instructions. Our biscuits were delicious, especially with the decorations on!

Science/Literacy 19.10.20- This afternoon, we had a go at some comprehension work. We read the text together and then split into two groups to complete challenges. Some of us did a skim and scan challenge and the others did a label and drawing challenge. We loved being comprehension ninjas!

19.10.20- This week, we have been reading, 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra.

Parents, look at our beautiful displays! We have been working really hard over the last half term, to make our classroom look beautiful.

Topic 13.10.20- Today, we went on a walk around the local area. We looked for different types of houses and discussed their features. It was lots of fun :)

English 09.10.20- Today, we looked at real life superheroes. We spent time discussing what these people do to make them heroes. After that, we wrote sentences to show our reasons why.

DT 06.10.20- The making and decorating stage of our project. Watch until the end of the slideshow, to see our AMAZING finished photo frames.

29.10.20- In our first DT lesson, we spent time researching, planning and designing our photo frames, which will hold a special picture. We discussed the reasons why people have photo frames too.

28.10.20 Maths- Today Mrs Green set some of us a challenge to match the numerals to the pictures. We were counting in 5's.

28.10.20- In our English lesson, we wrote a letter to the girl to apologise for cutting up her paper dolls.

PE- Travelling in different ways using different parts of our bodies. We had to make sure that a certain body part of our body was touching the floor. Can you guess which ones they were?

Maths- Today, we used the base 10 equipment to recognise and make numbers to 20. Some of us, even had a go at making some larger numbers too.

English- Hot Seating! Today, we completed an activity where we pretended to be a character from our story. The rest of the class had to think of suitable questions to ask.

We have been reading 'The Paper Dolls' by Julia Donaldson.

Art- Look at our beautiful art work. We created self-portraits. Can you work out (from the drawings) which Year One children are on our display?

English- Mrs Green forgot how to write sentences properly today. Luckily, we were here to help her out!

This week, we took our paper dolls on an adventure around school. They did lots of fun activities! Following on from this, we looked at verbs (doing words) and we gave lots of examples in class. During the next English lesson, we wrote a list of verbs. Some of us even had a go at writing super sentences, which included verbs too. 

Mrs Green is EXTREMELY proud of her super Year One children this week. heart


Not one, but two grown ups have mentioned to her how lovely, sensible and well behaved the whole class are. What a wonderful compliment to have of the children and we are only in our second week back to school. Mums and dads, you should be very proud too. smiley



PE- Our first lesson, in Fletcher Hall. We had lots of fun with Miss Simpson.

Phonics- Today, we did our lesson outside. We used chalks to write the graphemes on the floor.
