Year 1 News – Spring 1 – Week 5

6.2.23 – 10.2.23

This week was Children’s Mental Health week, so our PSHCE topic linked to this. The theme for this year is ‘Let’s Connect’ and the children watched a short video to explore this. They then shared with each other different ways they connect with people all day, every day! Each child completed a puzzle piece and we then put them together as a class to show how we connect as group.

The children worked so hard this week to write their letters to our visitor next term. They used their planned story maps to support them and included lots of questions to help us find out more about some of the animals.

In dance, the children learnt a routine to a hip-hop instrumental beat. They thoroughly enjoyed exploring the different moves and sequencing them together. Even the teachers got involved!

In computing, we have continued to use word documents to write text. This week we learnt about the bold, italic and underline commands. We then explored this in discovery to create our own ‘missing’ posters for items that were lost.

We have loved meeting all the various pets from some of our Year 1 families this half term. The children really enjoyed meeting lots of fury friends and asking lots of questions to find out more.
