Welcome to Class 1SP's Home Page
Our teachers are Miss St Pierre, Mrs Verity and Mrs Lalor. Have a look at some of the fun things that we have been getting up to in Year 1.
Outdoor Elements Trip
We went on a fantastic trip to Outdoor Elements. We went bug hunting, hunting insects in the river, den building, reading maps, identifying leaves and we even baked our very own garlic or cinnamon bread! Have a look at some of our photos! More to come.
Great Outdoors Orienteering
To launch our new topic "The Great Outdoors", Year 1 went orienteering in the junior playground. We followed a map to find different stations in order. We then had to answer lots of questions from learning we had already covered last term to help us remember what we had learnt. We worked with a partner to read our own questions and answer them. We loved orienteering and had lots of fun learning outdoors.
Easter Bonnet Parade & baskets
Lots of children came with an Easter Bonnet this week and we celebrated all their hardwork by having an Easter Bonnet parade in the playground with all of Key Stage 1 and Reception. Mrs Addy had the very difficult job of judging the winner. We think all our children did brilliantly. Have a look at some of the entries for the competition from Class 1SP. We finished our day by making an Easter basket for a different person in our class. We wrote a special note to them and hide it in an egg for them to read, before we filled our baskets with chocolate eggs and sweets! Have a lovely Easter holidays 1SP!
World Book Day
We had lots of fun during our week of World Book Day activities. We have brought a book for our Book Swap box, dressed potatoes, wrote a 6 word mini story, made and bought cakes to raise funds for our library and wrote a 100 word story as a class. We also came to school on Friday dressed up as our favourite book characters and we had a day of fun reading activities.
Our World Book Day Dress A Potato Competition Entries
Check out the entries from 1SP for our Dress our Potato Competition! These were simply Mashtastic!
Billie Bear's Wedding to the Earl of Warwick
In English, we have been doing recounts and we have had two fun events during this unit of work. First Billie had a birthday party in class and then she got married to the Earl of Warwick from 1D.
Billie and her bridesmaids came down the aisle to the beautiful "Wedding March" music. The vicar spoke to the congregation and they exchanged vows and rings. We threw confetti when they left the church.
Christmas Nativity Hey Ewe!
Our teachers are Miss St Pierre and Mrs Lalor. Have a look at some of the fun things that we have been getting up to in Year 1.
Well done everyone for working hard in a very short space of time to perform our Christmas Nativity.
The children can change their reading books every day and we ask them to put them in the box for changing. Please sign their reading record so that we know they have read. In class, we have a reading flower to encourage the children to keep reading. Every 3 books that the children read, they will move up a leaf until they reach the flower and they can win a prize.
Spelling tests are held every Monday morning. The children will also do a pre-test every Wednesday on their new spellings for the week. If the children get most of these correct, then they will be given list B to work on. The spellings will be a mixture of words using the graphemes we are working on in phonics or statutory words they need to learn in Year 1 (common exception words).
To help with spellings, I will also upload their spelling list onto Spelling Shed every Wednesday. The password for this is in the back of the children's homework books.
We encourage the children to bring a water bottle to school everyday to keep them hydrated. The children should be drinking water only and no cordials, juice or fizzy drinks should be brought to school.
We are having PE lessons with Mrs Holstead every Wednesday afternoon and with Miss St Pierre on a Friday. During this half term they will be mostly indoor PE lessons but the children will need an outdoor PE kit in school just in case.
