After being busy getting through not one, not two but three Roald Dahl books last half term, next half term the author of the half term is....
I wonder which one of his books we will read first?
What can you find out about him during the holiday?
Anybody who brings me any information about him will receive a value certificate for showing an excellent attitude towards their learning!
You'll find out our next book after the half term holidays.
To 1T's winners of the Roald Dahl competition. All of the entries were stunning and it was a very difficult choice for the judges!!
Great work guys, we love the drawing of Lucy's magic finger and the Roly Poly Bird.
Enjoy your prizes!!!
Some of us have spent some time today practising our number formation using multilink cubes. We worked together really well!
Maybe there are some things around the house you could use to build some numbers?
Year 1 have now begun to talk about the importance of 'Harvest time' and have begun to learn the celebration song that we will perform during next Wednesday's Harvest Festival assembly. Please practise the song with your child. For the chorus, 1T are taking on part 1 and 1P will be part 2.
Please also do not forget any food donations that you may wish to contribute. Many thanks!
Look at how keen these children are to improve their reading. They chose to spend time in our class reading area sharing a story with a reading buddy. I felt so happy when I saw this guys!
This young lady was busy elsewhere in the classroom enjoying some of the special books that Mrs Turner's own children chose for 1T when we visited the library at the weekend.
It is really important that your child can form all of their lower case letters accurately, starting in the correct position (mostly from the top). We have used this video in class to help us. Please practise at home.
The children in Year 1 have had the most wonderful day today. Glyn, a real circus performer came to visit us and shared all of his exciting circus equipment with us. We watched him demonstrate how to use it and then he let us have a go and try out some new skills too! Look how much fun we had! Mrs Turner was so proud of us all for showing so much resilience and determination, even when some of the skills were so tricky.
When we weren't working with Glyn, we also painted our own clown masks that we had designed, decorated clown face biscuits, made our own juggling balls to practise with at home and built our own circus tents out of Lego.
There are over 100 photos for you to enjoy. What did your child become at the circus?
All of the children have had lots of fun this week using paper mache to cover a balloon. When the balloons are dry and hard we will cut them in half and use them to make our own clown masks. Finished pictures to follow.
This week we have been doing lots of learning about 'number bonds'- pairs of numbers that make 10. Please help your child practise at home.
Mrs Turner is so proud of these two members of 1T who both gave up their time during the summer holidays to participate in the Dagenham Library reading challenge. They both managed to read and discuss six whole books and have now received their very well deserved certificates and medals. Great job guys!!!
Today we explored 'Peppa's circus'. We will be completing some fabulous writing about Peppa and her circus over the next few weeks. Why don't you watch it together?
Huge well done to this young man who is 1T's first member to earn a silver card for showing exceptional resilience to overcome something he found quite tricky at the beginning of Year 1. What a star you are! You have made Mrs Turner so proud!
Silly Billy Hunter's circus came to visit Year 1 on Wednesday afternoon. Silly Billy Hunter and her friend made all of the children roar with laughter before we watched a clip of Billy Smart's old fashioned circus and then compared it to a more modern clip of Cirque de Soleil. Not forgetting enjoying our popcorn in our homemade holders too!!!
