Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!

Hello and welcome to Year 1. My name is Mrs Dudding and I am the Year 1 class teacher. Miss Young also works in class and is our learning support assistant.
Our first topic this half term is All About Animals.  In class we have a Zoo Vet role play corner, topic tables and a craft table with activities and resources linked to our learning.
Every day, we have a phonics session in class to practise saying, reading and writing letter sounds and words.  On a Friday, children will come home with a few words to practise writing and an activity linked to the sounds that we will look at the following week.  They will also bring home a maths activity.  This homework is sent out on a Friday and collected in by the following Friday. 
Home reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and a Friday if they have been read.  Please listen to your child read at home as often as you can, and talk to them and ask questions about the story.  Please can children bring their home reading diary and books into school every day.
We have 2 PE sessions a week - on Monday with me and on Thursday with a sports coach in school.  Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit into school on the first day after each holiday and then leave your child's PE kit in school - we will send them home at the end of each half term. 
At Our Lady's, we are always pleased to meet our parents.  If you have any questions or would like to discuss something with me, I will be at the infant door at the start and end of the day where I can take a quick message.  If you need longer, I am available most days after school – please ask me or at the school office.

 

Mrs Dudding, Year 1 teacher.
 

This week in maths we have been sorting and sequencing shapes and objects. These photos show how we sorted shapes according to their properties, for example, how many corners and sides.

We will be making our own 3D pictures with levers, sliders and pop ups. This week we have been looking at a pop-up book and finding out how the different parts of the picture on each page move.

We have been exploring shape this week and made shape pictures.

In art we have had lots of fun experimenting and exploring using different media such as pencils, pens, pencil crayons, wax crayons, pastels and charcoal.

Year 1 class prayer service on the theme of family.

In class we have been learning about animals that like to live in hot and cold places.

We have been using number tracks and number lines in class.

We wrote a story based on our class story – Lost and Found. We read our story to the rest of the class.

We found a trail of fish from our cloakroom, down the corridor and into our class. In our classroom, we found a penguin!
