Homework due Friday 2nd March

We will be learning about split digraphs in Phonics this week.  When there is a magic ‘e’ at the end of a word, the vowel makes a long sound instead of a short sound.  For example, ‘hat’ and ‘hate’.

Spellings this week are therefore:


gate, made, like, time, bone, home, cube, tune, complete, delete

Can you put them into sentences once you have learnt them?

Number work:



Practise counting backwards in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Enjoy the snow and make sure you wrap up warm!



Last term we were learning all about materials in Science and their properties.  Today we found lots of different objects and thought about what they were made of and why their properties made them a good choice!

A mysterious incident!

Something very strange has been happening in the Year 1 block! A little yellow alien has been spotted getting up to mischief around school and yesterday her spaceship crashed into the classroom! We had so much fun exploring the crash site and looking at all the evidence.

Badger class maths

Money, money, money! We have been learning about number bonds to 10 and money in Maths.  This week, we have been looking at all the different coins and thinking about their value.  We are even going to use the money to buy some things from the Badger shop on Friday!


Treat day on Friday 9th February

The whole of Year 1 have been working so hard that both classes have filled their marble jars and are having a treat day this Friday.

Well Done to all of Year 1 – keep up the hard work!

Making Beegu a den

We have been learning about materials in Science.  This week we discussed which materials would be best to make Beegu a den that would protect her from the weather.  It needs to be waterproof and strong.  Can you see which materials we chose? We are going to test them on Monday!
