Honeycrisp - Year 1

Welcome to Honeycrisp's class page

Please visit our page regularly to keep up to date with all of the exciting learning we have been doing. 

This year Honeycrisp will be taught by myself - Mrs Marsh and Mrs Dickinson, who is our student teacher. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Evans as our TA, along with Mrs Booker, Mrs Cameron and Miss Springett as our 1:1 learning supports. 

 

Useful Information

- We will be having P.E on Mondays and Fridays. Children need to wear suitable P.E clothing and footwear, for outdoor sessions, to school on Mondays and Fridays. 

- A named water bottle, filled with water, to be in school everyday. We have access to drinking water in the classroom and will re-fill bottles when required.

- No toys from home to be brought into school.

 

Reading

Reading is very important and as a school we promote a high standard at all times. Please help your child reach their potential by hearing them read every day. You may find the following sequence helpful:

- Discuss the front cover, the title and what the book might be about.

- Look at the pictures and encourage your child to read the words. They may not know them all but always praise them for having a go.

- At the end of the reading time, ask your child to tell you what has happened in the book so far.

- Ask them some questions about their reading or get them to make up a question to ask you.

- Then make a note/sign in their reading records.

- Children will change their own reading books once they have read them with an adult, so don't be surprised if they bring the same book home more than once. 

 

I have included the link below which gives a selection of age appropriate books that your child may enjoy reading.

Term 6 - Queen Elizabeth II

Term 5 - The Seaside

We had a brilliant time at Seasalter Beach. Despite the wind, the children enjoyed looking for shells, creating sandcastles, searching rock pools and enjoying time with their friends.

To celebrate National Numeracy Day, we took part in lots of fun activities. We were part of a Guinness World Record being set! We had a shop, made cakes, played snakes and ladders, went on a number hunt and took part in a 30 second challenge. It was a very busy, enjoyable day!

Times Tables Rock Stars live event. We learnt a song and a dance and took part in setting a new Guinness World Record with children from all over the United Kingdom.

We had little shop so that we could buy ingredients to make our cakes. Each child had 17p to spend and choose what they wanted to buy.  

We then took our ingredients to make our cakes.

We went on a number hunt around the school. We found numbers everywhere!

We enjoyed learning to play snakes and ladders. 

We took part in a 30 second time challenge. We made a prediction of how many things we could do in 30 seconds and then tested it out. We had to hop, jump, star jump and say the alphabet as many times as we could in 30 seconds.

In DT, we made windmills. We made a design using warm and cool colours, then we transferred our designs onto our windmills.

Term 3 & 4 Plants, Animals and Me

As part of our DT learning, we have made hand puppets. We designed, made and evaluated our puppets. 

Look at our wonderful Easter hats!

Mrs Evans brought some frog spawn in for us to have in our class garden. We put them in a tub and will check on them regularly to see how it changes and grows.

We have been reading Handa's Surprise. This week we felt, smelt and tasted: banana, orange, mango, pineapple, passion fruit and tangerine. We then came up with a list of adjectives to describe the different fruits. 

Our Sports star this week did a brilliant job in Tri Golf.

We had a brilliant time in the forest completing an Easter treasure hunt. In our teams, we had to collect a picture of something in the forest, find it and then write down the letter that was written on an Easter egg. It was lots of fun! At the end of our session, we all had an Easter egg.
