Jays - Year 1

Welcome to Jays!

I would like to welcome you all to our class page. Each half term I will upload the overview of learning for that half term and also a copy of the latest newsletter. I will aim to update this page every 2 weeks so you can see the learning we have been under taking. 

My door is always open if you have any questions or problems please do not hesitate to see me. However, this is often easier at the end of the day. If it is important, please catch me in the morning. 

Mrs Roberts and Mrs Mcveigh.




3D shapes.


In maths we have been looking at 3D shapes. Firstly, we explored different shapes in the environment and what they are used for. We discussed the different names of 3D shapes and their properties and decided to model our own. Here we are hard at work.

What a fantastic morning we had. We have been looking at the story 'Little red hen' so decided in line with Harvest, to make our own bread. 

The children were amazing!! They added the ingredients carefully and took great care when kneading the dough. It was very messy but lots of fun. 

5 weeks in year 1. Where did the time go? We have been learning new sounds and applying this into our reading and writing. We have created story maps to help retell stories, created masks for characters and completed book reviews. In maths, we have explored numbers around the school and developed a good understanding of place value (tens and ones). We have looked at our body and our senses and even explored nature using our 5 senses. 

We have also completed 2 visits to Addlestone library and a visit to St Pauls. The children were amazing and are developing their green cross code. 

Thank you for your continued support.
