History topic


In history we are learning about toys from the past. If you can, please bring in an old or new toy you can share with the class this Wednesday 22nd November.


If there are any parents or grandparents who would be able to come in this term to talk about their 'old' toys then the children would love this and it would help them to compare the similarities and differences.


Thank you smiley



Our sound for this week is 'oo'

On Monday 20th November KS1 will be having a Maths Workshop Afternoon at 2:45.

Please come along and see what we've been learning and to find useful methods to help you to support your child's maths learning.


We have been practising our number bonds to 10: these are two numbers that add up to make 10.

We are now beginning to write number sentences  to show our working eg: 1+9=10, 2+8=10


Here are some examples of methods we use to find our fact families in Year One.


We have been learning the part-part whole model to show our working



We like to use numicon to find the missing numbers for our number sentences.

Number bonds are pairs of friends - number bonds to 10 song

Learn your number bonds to ten in an easy and fun way. Get the kids to just sing along to the numbers first then learn the rest of the words. This went down a storm and the children keep on asking for it!
