Welcome to Year 1 Fir!
Keep updated with all the fabulous work that takes place in Year 1 Fir by browsing through our web page.
Children in Need
We had a fun filled day to raise money for children in need. We went to different classrooms to do the challenges they had set like; making an new outfit for Mr Fallon and Mrs Smales, playing charades and pratising our aiming skills (they must have been good because we came first!). Then we had a penalty shoot out in the afternoon. All this was done in great outfits for a great cause, we LOVED it!
Mosborough's Burning, Mosborough's Burning!
The children were surprised when they were 'practising' for a fire drill and came outside to see miniature Mosborough on fire! The children saw the link between the fire and our current topic which created great discussions. They were able to witness how quickly fire spread because of different factors and I am sure the children will not forget the experience!
We thought it would be a great idea to create a miniature Mosborough because we have been focusing on our local area. We all had the task of making a building on the high street. We learnt that paper mache makes structures stronger, we practised our cutting skills and used different materials to make our buildings.
We have been working extremely hard this week preparing for our farmer's market. We made Paddington marmalade biscuits, mini suitcases and lots of posters to advertise our product. We had great fun!
We have started the year off flying, trying to improve our ball skills.
Hopes and Dreams
At the start of the year the children decided what they would like to improve at. Take a look at Year 1 Fir's class of 2017!
Year 1 Meeting for Parents
Thank you to those parents who made it to our year 1 meeting. We hope that it gave you lots of information about the journey your child will take over the next year. Year 1 will be exciting, full of new learning and challenging!
Please find below all of the documents we shared at this meeting.
If you have any further questions, suggestions or worries please come and see a member of the year 1 team.
Our Classroom Rewards
We are continuing to use Class Dojo in Year 1 where the children will be rewarded individually or in their groups for: Creativity, Independence, Stickability, Respect and Curiosity.
The children also have the chance to gain prizes when pom poms are added to our jar. To receive a pom pom, the whole class have to work together and demonstrate our value of the term. This half term we are working on the value of 'togetherness' which the children have been demonstrating already.
Year 1 Expectations
The children have had a great start to Year 1 and have experienced lots of different routines and activities like music, handwriting and ball skills in PE. It has been a lovely first week because everyone has signed and followed the class charter that we have in place.
