Autumn 1, Week 2

Stars of the Week: Scarlet and Thomas

This week Class 1 have been using their class charter to remind them of how we should act so that everyone has the right to be heard, to learn, to be safe and to have a nice environment. Scarlet and Thomas have been extremely kind and helpful this week and always work hard to ensure that Class 1 is a happy place to be!

Welcome to Year 1!

Stars of the Week: Scarlet and Alphie

What a great start to the year, Class 1! The children have settled into the new rules and routines very quickly and are enjoying the responsibilities of working independently at their tables. We have been writing prayers and producing art work for World Faiths Week, which we are celebrating this week at Cathedral School. Look out for pictures of their hard work on next week’s blog!

Sports Week!

 


Stars of the week: Mariama and Marwah


 

This week Class 1 have been busy getting ready for their first sports day! Children have enjoyed the ‘World Cup’ theme this week and have produced some excellent work, especially in maths where they have produced tally charts and bar graphs on different World Cup data. Children also wrote some fantastic letters to FIFA this week, asking for the World Cup to be held in London in 2022! Take a look at some of our photos from sports week.

Computing

This half term in computing children have started programming. Class 1 have been completing Code 1, called ‘We are angry birds’ and have been programming with visual code blocks.  Take a look at some of the things we have been doing in our computing lessons.

Summer 2 Week 4- Measurement


Stars of the Week: Astrid and Luca


This week Class 1 did some weighing during maths and explored the weight of a kilogram. Children used different classroom objects and put them onto their scales, then recorded how heavy or light they were. We found out that 3 school cartons of milk weigh around a kilogram!

 

Summer 2 Week 2- Noah’s Ark


Stars of the Week: Daniel and Maidie


Class 1 are learning about Noah’s Ark this half term in RE. This week, children thought about how hard it must have been for Noah and his family to build such a huge Ark, as instructed by God. We discussed how Noah was obedient to God and did as he was asked, then children used Lego to make their own Ark’s. We also linked this lesson to Science, thinking about which materials would work best if we built our own Ark!

 

Collective worship song

Please see below for Class 1’s song for their collective worship. Please encourage your child to sing along and practice with the lyrics.

Class 1’s Collective Worship is Wednesday 20th June.

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats and beans and barley grow?

First the farmer sows his seed,
Then he stands and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view the land.

Waiting for a partner,
Waiting for a partner,
Open the ring and let me in,
While we all daily dance and sing.

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats and beans and barley grow?

Next the farmer waters the seed,
Then he stands and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view the land.

Waiting for a partner,
Waiting for a partner,
Open the ring and let me in,
While we all daily dance and sing.

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats and beans and barley grow?

Next the farmer hoes the weeds,
Then he stands and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view the land.

Waiting for a partner,
Waiting for a partner,
Open the ring and let me in,
While we all daily dance and sing.

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow,
Can you or I or anyone know
How oats and beans and barley grow?

Last the farmer harvests his seed,
Then he stands and takes his ease,
He stamps his foot and claps his hands,
And turns around to view the land.

Waiting for a partner,
Waiting for a partner,
Open the ring and let me in,
While we all daily dance and sing.

Summer 1 Week 7- Poetry Week!


Stars of the Week: Sebastian and Olivia


Class 1 have enjoyed exploring some lovely poems this week. Children have done a lot of work on reading poems, finding rhyming words and writing their own poems. Class 1 looked at poems in the poetry book ‘Heard it in the Playground’ and we read some of these as a class. Children also explored rhyme in other well known children’s books such as The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.
