Pine and Spruce

Welcome to Year 1!

 

We have two year 1 classes at Brackenhill. In Pine class Mrs Garbutt is the teacher and the teaching assistant is Mrs Kauser. In Spruce class Miss Usman is the teacher and Mrs Coles is the teaching assistant. We also have extra adult help from Miss Larkin and Miss Iqbal.

We have great fun in Year 1. Throughout the day we do exciting and engaging lessons with our teachers. Year 1 is a fun place to be, please take a look at our planning and photos to see all the amazing things we learn.

 

Kind regards,

The children and all the Year 1 team!

Autumn 1 - Pie Corbett

Pine and Spruce class have been learning about instructions in English.  We have sequenced then and looked for important features.  We have also had great fun learning some instructions about How to Make a Jam Sandwich.  We used Pie Corbett actions to help us.

Autumn 1 - English - On the way home

This half term we have been learning the story ‘On the Way Home.’ We have really enjoyed using the actions to retell the story.

Autumn 1 - Computing

In Computing we have been looked at data handling. We collected a tally of our favourite characters from the story ‘On the Way Home.’ We had lots of fun asking each other and recording the data on a tally chart.

Autumn 2 - Monkey Puzzle

In Maths we have been learning about shapes, position and number.  We have partitioned numbers into tens and units and used base 10 to show this.

We have enjoyed learning our Spellings. We have a new display in class that helps us.

Spring 1

This half term we have been looking at Explanation Texts. We have written our own leaflet to explain “How to look after a goldfish.” We also looked at the story of “Dougal‘s Deep Sea Diary” and the poem ‘Commotion in the Ocean.”

 In Maths we have been learning about addition and subtraction. We have used objects, number lines, number frames and partitioning so that we know lots of different ways to get to the answer.

In Science we have been looking at animals. We can name the different groups animals belong to and can tell you what an herbivore, carnivore and omnivore eat.

Spruce Class went on a trip to Chester Zoo. We saw lots of animals, learnt lots of new facts and had lots of fun. The weather was good to us too! Pine Class can’t wait to go in Spring 2!

Spring 2

This half term our topic has been “We’ll Huff and We’ll Puff and We’ll Blow Your House Down!” We have read and learnt the story of ‘The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig.’ We acted out as the characters from the story and did some hot seating. We then wrote a character description for a good character and a bad character.

Enterprise Project

This half term it was also Year 1 Enterprise. We made and sold Easter Crispy buns. We demonstrated the British Value of Democracy by holding a vote to help decide on a price to sell the crispy buns. The children enjoyed filling in a ballot paper and putting the votes in a polling box-they were even more excited to count the votes! Across Year 1 the decision was unanimous and we sold the buns at 50p-democracy in action! The children were actively involved in making the crispy buns as you can see from the pictures, right down to collecting orders and money and delivering the delicious treats to our customers.  We made a grand total of £114.57!
