Welcome to Year 1
Here is our class Advent calendar. Each day, to begin our school day, we open a new envelope. Inside is a prayer which was written by a member of our class. We reflect quietly, with the Advent candles lit.
We have been learning about Florence Nightingale. We have learnt all about what she did, and why she was so important. We have made our own lamp because she was the Lady of the Lamp. We have worked in teams to sequence the events in her life, into chronological order, which was very tricky!
During our baptism topic, we went to visit Fr Darren at St Peter's Church. He modelled the Sacrament of Baptism and we experienced the journey the family and baby takes on their special day. We had a great time!
Year 1 have read the story of The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. We have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the vocabulary in the text to find the nouns, adjectives and verbs. We have created the characters and added adjectives around the edge to describe them. We loved this adventure story!
Please feel free to enjoy the games on Phonics Play. They have some great activities for the children which will develop their phonics confidence and knowledge.
