Marvels - Y1


Little Marvels Love to Learn!

Class teacher - Miss Tate

Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs White also help us with our learning

My name is Miss Tate and I am your child’s teacher this year. Also working in Y1 this year are Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs White- we are looking forward to getting to know you and your children and we are confident that we will make a great start to the year.


Homework for this year will be as follows and your help with making sure the children do their homework and return it on time will be very much appreciated:

Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.

Each half-term we are given homework that matches the learning we do in school for each topic.

Reading books will be changed when needed. Please try to read with your child every day.


PE lessons will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Your child should have their PE kit in school by now.  It is essential that your child has the full PE kit on their peg everyday (in case there is a timetable change!) No earrings should be worn on these days.

Autumn Term1 2017

Little Marvels have had a busy start to the year! We have done lots of Art work linked to our Science topic of Animals and our Geography topic called ‘Hot and Cold Places’.  The children have been sketching penguins as well as painting them and making penguins from clay.




In English we have written our own story based on ‘Lost and Found’ which is about a penguin from the South Pole.


In the above display you can see what the children

told the scribe to write.  They used their phonics knowldege to spell words.  

In Maths lessons, we have been doing lots of counting practise as well as manipulating numbers and we have just moved onto Addition and Subtraction.

In PE, the children have been improving their throwing and catching skills and applying these skills in their Games lessons.

Autumn Term 2 2017

Year 1 have had another very busy half-term. As well as preparing for the Christmas Nativity performance we have been doing lots of learning.

In English, we have been reading stories about dragons and princesses. We worked towards writing our very own short stories. To help us do this we have used drama techniques such as hot-seating and acting out stories.

In Maths lessons, we have done a lot of work on shape. The children have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. They have sorted shapes, made pictures with them, made shapes from different materials and solved shape problems.

We have really enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London in History lessons. The children know all about how the fire started and why it spread so quickly. Some of us wrote diary entries as if we were there at the time and we have done lots of Art work about the Great Fire too.

In Science lessons, the children have been learning about Seasonal Change. We made our own weather charts and have also done lots of outdoor learning including investigating wind and rainfall.

In PE lessons we have continued to practise out throwing and catching skills and have played lots of games to help us do this.

Spring Term 1 2018

We have had a wonderful half term with some brilliant learning taking place. One of the highlights was our trip to Towneley Hall to learn about toys from the past.


Our English lessons have been really interesting as we have been reading Classic Stories such as Peter Rabbit and Jack and the Beanstalk. The children have been trying really hard with their writing by using a variety of new techniques such as suffixes and joining words.

In Maths, we have been working really hard to embed number facts by doing lots of counting and we have enjoyed using practical equipment to help us do this.

We have enjoyed doing lots of practical investigations in our Science lessons linked to the weather such as testing rain fall and ice. We even had a go at being weather reporters in class!
