Our Rainbow of Hope

Hello everyone

 

I hope that you and your families are well and are enjoying the lovely spring sunshine! 

 

Myself and Miss Young are missing you all - how have have you been getting on with your learning from home? 

 

Soon I will be adding a timetable of suggested activities and online resources for you to do each day to keep you busy and your mind active!

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

See you soon,

 

Mrs Dudding

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.
 

Year 1 had lots of fun on Wednesday taking part in our exciting World Book Day activities. The children enjoyed working in groups with reception and Year 2 children, and moving around different classes to work with different teachers.

On Monday Year 1 had a fantastic time visiting Blackburn Museum. In the morning we looked at portraits and drew our own portrait of a friend. In the afternoon we played with lots of old toys and then made our very own ‘cup and ball’ toy to take home.

This week in year 1 we have been using different maps, globes and Google Earth to find where the United Kingdom is in the world. We also moved a Beebot programmable toy on a floor map of the United Kingdom to go in different directions – North, South, East, and West. We then said which country the Beebot was in.

This week in year 1 we read instructions to each other and made pirate hats.

In year 1 this week we have been doing lots of measuring using grams on balance scales.

Here is the cast of Year 1 in the Christmas Nativity. We are very proud of the children for their amazing performance and the confidence that they have shown.

In Year 1 this week we have been making snowflakes and paper chains to make our classroom look like a winter wonderland.

In Year 1 we have been talking about Advent and we made a class Advent calendar. We will open a door for each day of December and follow the activity to help us show love and caring.

In year 1 we have been halving. We found half of a number by sharing cubes onto each half of a shape and counting how many cubes were in each half.

In year 1 we have been singing the song ‘London’s Burning’ in music. This week we played percussion instruments in time to the beat of the song.

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!
