The Virtues and Values for this half term are Grateful and Generous.
We are growing to be Grateful for the world around us; and Generous in our kindness to others.
Our class saint is St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland.
This term will begin with the unit of Christmas, and develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of Christmas as a celebration of the birth of Jesus. The children will develop an understanding of the importance of the birth of Jesus through the events that happened before and after, and the impact it had on the people involved.
We will then move onto develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of what it means to belong to, and celebrate as a family. The ‘Families and Celebrations’ unit will focus on the Mass, the stories of the Presentation and Finding of Jesus in the Temple and the Wedding Feast at Cana as important celebrations in the life of the Church and Jesus.
Each week, a child who has been noticed for displaying beautiful behaviour and well-presented hard work throughout each school day will be rewarded with our class friend Doogie. In normal circumstances, this would mean that Doogie is sent to your home for a weekend adventure however, due to covid-19 safety precautions, I will not be sending Doogie to homes until it is a safer time to do so. Instead, your child will be rewarded with a Doogie certificate/star prize and celebration in class.
Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London! This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city.
We will tell well-known stories about London, make a stop-motion animation and share traditional British songs and nursery rhymes.
In science we will be learning about plants and understanding that plants are a living organism through photosynthesis. We will study the different parts of a plant and identify a wide variety of plants including flowers, trees and vegetables.
Hi Parents and Year 1,
Firstly I would like to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR, I hope that you had a lovely, restful Christmas break. As you are aware, Year 1 will be learning from home for the time being. Each day, I will be uploading your child's learning on Microsoft Teams. This will consist of a Phonics taught video, PowerPoint teaching slides and other teaching videos that I will upload in the relevant subject channel. Please contact me via our 'chat' section and send any pieces of your child's work there for me to provide feedback.
Please join me on Monday mornings at 9am for our live story session.
Thank you in advance for your patience and commitment to virtual learning.
Kind regards, Miss. Erroi
