St. Peter - Y1
Welcome to the Summer Term!
It is the final term of Year 1 before you go into Year 2!
We will be updating our class page weekly to showcase all our learning that takes place.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Mister Coranti and Miss Duncan
Friday afternoon has been quite busy for Year 1. We began our afternoon singing and dancing 'Macarena' and they are getting pretty good at it. Also, right after the dancing, we calmed down and did Collective Worship Assembly. Apart from that, we finished our Friday by starting to sew our hand puppets. They are ready now and they will be decorated by next Friday. Have a nice weekend everyone!
It was Careers Week in OLOL and it turned out to be such a fun and productive week. We had Paramedics, Fire Fighters, Doctors, Doggy Day Care Staff, Dentists and all sort of professional workers. They talked about their jobs and hopefully they have inspired the children to select what they want to be when they grow up. We also had a shop in Year 1 where they had to buy lots of items from the shopkeepers using coins. It has been such a fun week. Here some pictures. Have a lovely half -term!
On Thursday, Year 1 had to build castles with Legos. There were different aspects to look out for and award points: teamwork, design, presentation of their final product and originality. We talked about the different features of the castles and what would make a great and impenetrable stronghold or fortress.
This week Year 1 have been learning about Palm Sunday and The Last Supper in Religious Education. We recreated the Palm Sunday step by step; how Jesus' two disciples got a donkey and how they entered Jerusalem cheered by the disciples/Israelites waving palm leaves. There are also some unhappy Pharisees in the crowd, let's see if you can spot them.
This week Year 1 has been measuring and comparing the mass of different objects in the classroom using cubes. We used a scale to find out the mass in cubes of those objects and make predictions. And talking about predictions, today we moved onto capacity, and most of the children assumed that the taller container would hold more water than the shorter but wider one. We had to demonstrate the result visually.
Year 1 has been focusing on measuring the length of some objects of the classroom. The children first measured the objects using cubes and paper clips, having them both levelled up with the object they were measuring. After that, they measured different objects using a ruler starting from 0 (giving the length or height in cm).
Well done Year 1 for making a great effort for Number Day. The children were challenged to order themselves using their own numbers. Great team work!
Well done Year 1 you learnt and performed an amazing liturgy about the Holy Spirit!
In Maths we are looking at number sequences. The children need to be able to order the numbers and fill in the missing gaps of a sequence. Well done Year 1 for working together to complete the numberline.
In computing the children have been beginning to look at basic codes. They have been using the basic codes to move different objects from one place to another.
Hello and welcome back to Year 1.
It has been a pleasure to watch the progress the children have been making during the last term. We are looking forward to another fun, exciting and productive term.

Miss Davies and Ms Duncan.
The past few weeks we have been reading the story Grandad's Island the class were acting out the key scenes in the story. Each group had to guess what part of the story each group was acting out. Great team work Year 1.
The Minnie Vinnie's came to visit our class to pray the rosary. They taught us what each section of the rosary means and how we can use it to help us pray.
During history we have been looking at Castles. The children had the chance to build their own Castles in a team. They had to try and include as many features of a castle as they could. Well done Year 1.
We are celebrating Black History Month by reading the inspiring story Imani's moon. It is a story about a girl who is extremely brave and inspires others to never give up. Here the children are freeze framing scenes from the story.
Recommended books to read with your child.
The children were making number lines using their shoes, cubes and dominoes. They were able to match the correct amount to the corresponding number.
The children were re-telling and acting out the story The Way Back Home. The children worked in pairs to show key parts of the story through speech and drama.
In Maths the children have been learning how to count 1 more and 1 less. They have been using counters and number lines to identify the number and count backwards or forwards.
During our first RE lesson we listened to the creation story and discussed what God did on each day. The children took it in turns to read a section of the story. Well done for such great listening skills Year 1!
