Primary Academy

Year 1 (The Penguins)

Fortnight Beginning 30.9.19 - 7.10.19

We have been busy bees in Year 1. We have been challenging ourselves by having a go at subtraction on the number line. Some of us have even had a go at working out the answers to some worded questions. We have done amazingly well!

We have been re writing our story ‘The Pirates of Scurvy Sands’ in English. This is the first time that the children have had to write at length and they have blown us away with how fantastic they are.

In other areas, we have completed our learning of the changes in farming; challenge us and ask us what we know.



Fortnight beginning 16.9.19 - 23.9.19

The last two weeks have been jam packed for us in Year 1. We have learnt what nouns, adjectives and verbs are and had a go writing our own noun phrases. This has been a challenge for us to put the words in the right position but we have got better every day.  

Maths has been fun using our place value knowledge to begin adding numbers together. Some of us have had a go at using a number line whilst others have used numicon. The children have really impressed all the adults with this.  

Jeffery our class fox has been keeping his eye out for children trying really hard and has now visited two children’s homes for the weekend. We really enjoy sharing his adventures in class and can’t wait to see who he chooses this week.  




Fortnight beginning 2.9.19 - 9.9.19


The children have got off to an absolutely amazing start since the beginning of the school year. They have had lots of new routines to absorb and a complete change in how they learn. They have taken it all in their stride and we are super impressed with them. 

The trickiest thing to get into the routine of doing has been our morning job that we have to complete before assembly time. They did do these in Reception, however we now do them in our books and the children have had the challenge of finding the correct page before starting. We are beginning to master it now.  

We have spent some time learning what each subject is actually all about before we go into the content as most children have never realised they have been learning about things such as Science and Geography. The children have had so many new things going on since joining Year 1, they have been fantastic and you should be really proud of them.  

We can’t wait to continue our learning adventure together!
