Year 1

A+ R A-
WB 13.11.17
What a fun week we have had this week!
Year one were lucky enough to work with Whitehaven rotary club to plant new bulbs around our school. For every bulb that we planted, we are helping people in the other countries such as Pakistan and Africa provide vaccinations against polio. Here are some pictures of our morning-image7
In literacy, we have been reading Not now Bernard. We enjoyed it that much that we decided to plan our own stories based on it. Here we are thinkng of naughty things our monsters could get up to around school. I hope Mrs Jackson doesn't realise that there were 19 monsters in her office!

As part of our RE topic, we went to visit Father Paul at church. We all took part in a baptism and learnt why baptism is important.  Mrs Lewthwaite's baptism gown came in very handy for our baby!

WB 30.10.17
What a very busy first week back! In science, we went on an Autumn walk and looked for signs of Autumn. We then used what we had found to make Autumn pictures.  We looked at the different types of leaves and used an identification chart to sort the leaves.
Im maths we are continuing with adding. We have been really concentrating on using the bar model to find missing numbers.
We have started football training on a Tuesday with Stuart Green- Please make sure you all have your PE kits and trainers in school! 
Mrs Bell's group in phonics have been looking at CVCC and CCVC words- they are nearly ready to look at phase 5.
On Monday, we celebrated the 90th Anniversary of St Mary's Grotto. We went down to church to say the Hail Mary to our Lady, and for some reflection time.
We have also started to practise for our Christmas play. Details of what your child is, and costume arrangements will be handed out next week.
Thank you to all the parents who have attended parent's evening and pupil premuim meetings. If you did not manage to make it, please see either Mrs Bell or Mrs Lewthwaite to rearrange. 
A few reminders of things that were discussed at the these meetings; it is very important that reading is done every night at home. There are now new booklets in your childs reading records with words to practice. PE kits should be in school EVERY DAY. This includes; shorts, t shirt, socks - if girls have come to school in tights, and appropriate footwear- not school shoes.
Welcome back after the holidays! We hope you have all had a fabulous break and are ready to learn lots of exciting and new things.
