Happy Half Term!!!

Date: 22nd Oct 2020 @ 4:04pm

What a busy and tiring first half term back in school we have had!!!

The children have been amazing getting stuck back into their learning and enjoying being back into the structure of a new 'normal' in school and seeing their friends. It has been a joy to watch children learn new Year 1 skills. 

Have a lovely half term what ever you do but remember to keep safe!

Love Mrs Iqbal

Hello Everyone!

Today children have brought home a letter all about Active Learn. I have also attached the letter that has been sent home to this blog. 

This is an online rssource to support your child with their reading, phonics, spellings, punctuation and grammar skills. The logging in details are also attached to the letter.

Please can you make sure you read the information and if they are any issues with the logging in details or you have any further questions please ask me at the gate when you drop off or pick up your child or alternatively drop me an email on:

For being really polite and helpful in the class this week.

Great job!!!

This week we started our new story called 'Supertato.' We discovered a sack of vegetables stuck on our working wall with a parcel next to it. The vegetables were terrified and needed our help to identify and describe the Evil Pea! We became adjective detectives and designed the evil pea and thought of adjectives to describe the character.

Our Learning so far...

Date: 27th Sep 2020 @ 3:13pm

What a wonderful start to our learning in 1AI!!! 

Children have amazed me with their commitment and ability to work in our new 'normal' in Year 1. This week we have continued to read and use our focus text called 'My Mum is a Supermum.' We have used this to write labels to describe the mum in the story, another superhero and ended the week by drawing and labelling a picture of our own Mum or Nana.  Why not listen to the story using the link below:


In maths we have started to think about adding two numbers within 10 using the counting on method on a number line and combining two groups of objects. We have also started to practise our number skills in our daily Fluent in 5 sessions. We end each session with a BIngo game where we practise writing our numbers and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. 

In our Connected Curriculum or what we call 'CC' we have started to think about what is incredible about our bodies and what we already know. It was amazing to listen to all the facts that children already knew about the body. We talked about the differences and similarities between us all in 1AI and talked about what we were good at. 

In PE we started the 'Daily Mile' using our track outside and indoor PE consisted of Just Dance and a fitness version of the game Bingo! In Outdoor PE we have started to practise lots of multiskills using different games and equipment.  

Phew!!! It has been a busy few weeks!!! Keep checking our blog for more learning updates from 1AI. 

Friday 25th September Behaviour Star!!!

Date: 25th Sep 2020 @ 11:58am

It's the end of the week again and in 1AI we have another Behaviour Star!!

This week the award has been given to Tomasz. Well Done for following our class and school rules and being such a great example to other children in the class and around school.

Friday 18th September - Behaviour Star!!!

Date: 20th Sep 2020 @ 7:24pm

Every Friday in Year 1 a Behaviour Star is chosen. The star is someone who has shown fantastic behaviour all week and has followed the class rules and stayed on Green all week or even ended up on Outstanding!!!
