Cherry - Year 1

Welcome to Cherry Class

Year 1

Cherry Class is taught by

Mrs Buxton.

Mrs Elliott works with us and supports our learning Monday - Thursday.

We have lots of fun in Year 1, working with Maple Class and always trying our best.

 

A few reminders:

  • Our PE day is a ThursdayPlease ensure that all children have a suitable PE kit with them each week. We advise that children bring their PE kits into school at the beginning of a term and leave it on their pegs for the whole term.
  • Children need their book bags in school every day. We read with your child several times throughout the week and it is very important that this is recorded in your child's reading diary.
  • It is important that children are reading at home as well as in school. When you listen to your child read at home, please write in their diary so that we know their book needs changing. Remember to try and read at least 5times a week
  • Cherry's forest school day is an alternate Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure that children have suitable clothing and footwear to change into for this session as we will be going out in all weather.

National Space Centre - 4/3/19

The children and staff had a great time on our trip to the National Space Centre. We went up the Rocket Tower, experienced a launch pad and control room and learnt a lot from the different exhibitions, such as The Universe and Our Solar System. We also watched a planetarium show about Astronauts, how they train and the conditions they have to survive and work in during their time in space. What an amazing day! 

Spring 1 - Superhereos!

This half-term we will be looking at Superheroes. Year 1 will be looking at both fictional superheroes and real people that have helped changed the world. Within this topic we will also be looking at the art work that surrounds superheroes; Pop Art and visual effects.

We will be looking at a range of different celebrations from different religions or parts of history. Year 1 will be looking at Bonfire Night and why we celebrate it, Diwali and how that is celebrated around the world and will also be looking at the Christmas Story.

Instruction Writing - Sandwich Making

This week, Year 1 have been looking at Instructions.  We have looked at a variety of different instruction texts, identified their key features and collected a bank of 'bossy' imperative verbs ready to write our own set of instructions. On Thursday, we made jam sandwiches all by ourselves! We thought about the different steps needed to make our sandwich. We are now going to write our own set of instructions all about how to make a jam sandwich.

Punch and Judy - Puppet Making

We had a Design & Technology Day on Thursday 11th October. As part of our topic this term, we have been thinking about holidays in present day and holidays that Victorian people would have had in the past. We have thought about similarities and differences and have looked at the activities Victorian adults and children would have taken part in during their seaside holidays. We discussed the Punch and Judy show and looked at the basic story line. As part of our DT day, Year 1: designed, made, performed and evaluated using their own hand made puppets. We used wooden spoons for our puppets,  included a range of different materials and had a go at using lots of design and fixing skills to create our puppets. We had a lovely time and worked really hard. They look amazing!

​​​​​​Grandparent's Day

A huge thank you to all the grandparents that came along to our Grandparent's Day afternoon today. We had a great time out in Forest School and the children really enjoyed building dens, making swings and being outdoors with the grandparents that attended. We are glad the weather stayed dry for us!
