St Peter Year 1

Hello Year 1. We hope you had a lovely Christmas and a very happy new year. Myself and Ms John are looking forward to teaching you on Microsoft Teams over the next couple of weeks. We cannot wait to see the work you do for us. We hope to be welcoming you back into the classroom very soon.  

Welcome to Year 1!


My name is Miss Beaney and I will be teaching you this year with Ms John. I am looking forward to teaching you all and getting to know you. I know we will have lots of fun learning and you will all be brilliant.

Maths Homework- Doubling 29/09/2020

Spelling Homework 5th October

In English, Year 1 did some hot seating. They were acting as Max, the character from the book ‘Where The Wild Things Are’. Children asked Max some really impressive questions and those who acted as Max did some great acting.

The class created Christmas cards of the Nativity that will be entered into a competition!

In Art this week, children created a piece of work called Green Fingers. They mixed blue and yellow to make different shades of green. They found that if they mixed more yellow paint the shade of green would be lighter, but if they mixed more blue paint it would be a darker shade of green. The children had fun creating this art work.

In this week's Art lesson, we used Lego and paint to do some Lego block printing. The class had a really fun time doing this and it was great to see their final masterpieces!!

Music - Exploring Pulse and Rhythm

In our Music lessons with Mrs Kent, we have been learning about pulse and rhythm.  We have been using dance moves, clapping and robot arms to follow the pulse in a piece of music.  As you can see, we need to concentrate!

Today in our Science lesson children enjoyed sorting animals into three groups based on what they eat: carnivores, omnivores and herbivores.

For IPC, Year 1 wrote on petals what makes them happy. We then turned these into a flower which is displayed in the classroom.

In IPC, we looked at how to keep safe, especially looking at road safety. Children role-played how to safely cross a road and walk on pavements.

In Maths this week, we have been using a 0-100 number grid to help us find what 10 less and 10 more is of a given number.

This week, each child created an acrostic poem about someone they loved (for example, their mum, dad, sister). They all produced excellent poems and worked really hard on them. Their entries will be sent off to a poetry competition and each child will receive a bookmark.

In Art this week, children were recreating Jasper John's 0-9 painting, using primary colours. The children also created secondary colours. They all did a fantastic job at painting.
