Welcome to the YEAR 1 Noticeboard.

Updated 12.1.18 (SW)

Dear Parents,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We hope you had a lovely break over the holidays. The children have been writing their news this week and it sounds like everyone was very busy!

This week we have been working on different strategies to solve subtraction problems. We have used concrete objects, pictorial representations, number lines and counting backwards. The children have really come on as the week has progressed. Please practise this skill on the new Active Learn home allocated. We have been learning the names of lots of healthy food in Welsh and writing about our likes and dislikes. Miss Jones’ class had Forest Schools this afternoon and Miss Withey’s class were in the ICT suite learning to log on using a username and password to access HWB. Their login details will be coming home soon for them to practise writing and drawing on Jit.

The week ahead:

We have an exciting week coming up with lots of Science. We will be basing our experiment on Humpty Dumpty and looking at ways we can protect an egg when it falls off a (small) wall. We will be investigating materials and their properties.

In Maths we will be looking at strategies for addition including counting on, using a number line and adding 10 (or 20) with and without a number square.

Please keep practising number bonds to 10, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and number formation with your child.

Miss Jones’ class will be doing outdoor P.E skills this week and Miss Withey’s class will be in the hall continuing our work using apparatus in gymnastics.

Have a lovely weekend. See you all on Monday.
