What a great term in Year 1!

We have had a great first term together. They have settled in well to life in Year 1 and have enjoyed all our creative learning this term. The children have loved exploring paint and learning about the primary and secondary colours. They have learnt how to create hues of colours and painted some beautiful turnips linked to our story, ‘The Enormous Turnip’. The children also loved retelling their own versions of the story using their own vegetable and characters. Maybe your child will be able to retell their story to you if you ask them. We also had fun this week printing using different vegetables. We recreated a farmer using the prints.

In maths this term, we have been exploring our knowledge of numbers to 10. The children have been finding one more and one less than numbers and they have been learning to make numbers in different ways. We have also been learning to recall all our pairs of numbers to make 10. There is a great game online if your child wants to continue to practice their bonds to ten.


Our next project is ‘Polar Explorers’. To start our project, we would like to invite your child to dress up for the day as an explorer. This will be on Thursday 4th November. Further details will be emailed out to you. Any questions please email the team on year1@stmarksce.org.uk 

Have a super half term. Thanks for all your help with your child’s learning this term.
