January Scrapbooking Laser Cut Title

Can you believe that it is January already!? Time flies when you are having so much fun. We have so much to learn this next half term and I can't wait to share it all with the children. 



We have had lots of fun experiences so please take some time to look through our wonderful learning :) 

Times Tables Rockstars 


This term we are going to re-launch Times Tables Rockstars for our year 1 learners. We feel they are ready to take on the challenge!


How does it work? 

  • Children will be given a username and password that's  unique to them. 
  • Once on the site ( ) choose the login section and find our school. 
  • Type in username and password 
  • Choose an area to play in and enjoy your Rockstars experience 


If you set a new speed and move up a level, let me know so I can do you a certificate to be given out in praise assembly. 



We will cover lots of topics in maths this term, addition, subtraction, measurement, numbers to 100, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, multiplication and division. Woooooo I'm just tired even thinking about it all. 




We have also been finding ways to make 10 and 20. We know that these pairs of numbers are called number bonds. 

Our number bonds are-

0 + 10

1 + 9 

2 + 8 

3 + 7 

4 + 6 

5 + 5 

10 + 10 

11 + 9 

12 + 8 

13 + 7 

14 + 6 

15 + 5 

16 + 4 

17 + 3

18 + 2

19 + 1 

20 + 0

Maths Fun

New year- New topic! 

Our geography topic is... Around the world in 80 days. 


We will be learning all about different continents and countries of the world. In lesson one we talked about places we have all been on holiday and how that place was different to England. We learnt all about France and one of the funniest facts we learnt was that the French like eating snails and frogs legs! We best keep the french away from our ponds! 

I can't wait to learn about more places. 

Keep checking back to learn more funny facts about the countries in the world. 

This term our geography topic is "Where Do I Live?". We discussed where we thought we lived and we collected all our answers. 

We were excited to learn that the country we lived in was the U.K. 

In this topic we will be continuing to work on learning more about London, which is our capital city, and local cities around us. 

So far we have used maps and google maps to help us understand where we live. 

Where do I live ?

We loved exploring on the map
We created a flip book
It explains exactly where we live
Our planet, continent, country and house
We leant about the countries in the uk
And their capital cities


In phonics children are split into groups and work with that adult to learn new sounds and do lots of fun activities based around a certain book. Your child will get sent home with a new book to read. Please return on the date requested and we can change this for the next book. Thank you for reading with your child at home! It makes such a difference.

Over Christmas we did lots of exciting things, from reindeer runs, nativities, parties and plenty more crafty activities. Take a look at our pictures to see us in action. 

Feeling Dotty- international dot day 


After hearing "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds in assembly we were given a whole school task to create a sea of dots for a display and dot day. Our colour was orange and we couldn't wait to start making our dots. We used a wide variety of materials to create our bright orange dots. Have a look below to see our creations! 

The Day The Crayons Quit


For the past 2 weeks we have been reading and doing work based around the book. The book is a story about a box of crayons that are refusing to do any work. The crayons write to their owner-Duncan, asking for a rest or an explanation why they aren't being used often! 


We have been... 

-Creating pictures with our favourite colours

-Making lists about what each colour has been drawing 

-Created reasons for them quitting their jobs 

- Making our own crayons out of paper and creating a speech bubble for them to say 

-Writing a letter from Duncan as a reply
