Merry Christmas Everyone!
This week we have been making lots of love Christmas crafts after all the hard work for the nativity. We also had our class Christmas party where we played games and ate some nice food.
I want to thank every parent for their support this term, through reading, homework and all our special days. I hope you and the children have a nice break and an enjoyable Christmas. Looking forward to 2019!
Yesterday was the Huish Christmas Dinner. With some wonderful food, crackers, laughter and some cheerful Christmas music, everyone had a great time.
Thank you to all that attended the Year 1 nativity this morning. The children have worked so hard and I hope you agree that all of it paid off and you enjoyed the performance. Here are a few photos from our dress rehearsal yesterday.
The Great Fire of Pudding Lane
As most of you know we have been studying the Great Fire of London this half term. We recently completed a mock up of Pudding Lane. The children worked in pairs to build a Tudor house, then with the help of class 4 we recreated Pudding Lane in the playground and ‘set it on fire’. With the damage done the children then rebuilt London under the king’s recommendations.
Weekly Spelling Homework
Welcome back everyone. I hope you had a nice break. This week we’ve decided to start giving your child weekly spellings. There will be 9 key words each week to memorise and this will be accompanied by little activity that will mirror what we do during the week,
If this could be returned every Friday so I can mark it and add the next week’s words, that would be great.
Our Trip to Gore Farm started with a quick talk with Angela, our guide for the day. As you can see we sat on seats made from hay bails. She then took us down to the woods where we went on an autumn scavenger hunt, collecting anything we could find. We would later use these to make a mobile, which is now hung up outside our classroom.
After the hunt we then went looking for pipe cleaners, which had been hidden in the woods. We found the black, brown and green ones the hardest to find. Can you think why?
Then after lunch we made our mobile and collected leaves to make a display. We had a great day and the children were a real credit to Huish.
Homework for the Seasons
Last week your child came home with their homework project book for the term. This is linked to the Year 1 Science curriculum ‘Seasonal Changes’. Please help your child with any observations they make about what happens through the seasons. This may include the weather, day length, how plants and animals respond to changes and even changes to personal clothing or diet. A letter is attached to the inside of the booklet. Have fun!
I will let you know on the blog when it is due back.
Blog is up and Running
Sorry for the delay on getting this blog up and running.
I have been amazed at how well each child has settled in to Year 1 and coping with the workload and lack of ‘choosing time’. I also want to thank you for all the reading you are doing with your children. Even in this short time I am seeing improvements.
