Dear Parents/Carers I hope that this message finds you in good health and consciousness. As part of our ongoing commitment to offering a balanced curriculum during these testing times, Mr Ananda and I have created some PRE homework and resources to support children with their PRE learning whilst at home Year 1 PRE Homework 31.03.20

Children can complete the activity/reflection in their homework books or create their own reflection book. This work will not be marked by the class teacher, but children can bring their work in when we return to school and discuss their reflections with Mr Ananda during their next PRE lesson. At this point, we have no clear directive from the Government as to when this will be. Wishing you and your families well. Regards Mr Koorichh and Mr Ananda

Year 1 Teaching for Mastery Presentation for Parents Jan 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

As often as we can, we put on workshops for parents and carers to learn about schools’ approach to teaching. 

We had another successful well attended maths mastery workshop for parents of year 1 on Thursday 23rd January 2020.

The main objective of this workshop was to give parents opportunity to explore resources and getting involved with some of the activities.

We constantly aim to improve our work with parents, so feedback is always very important. 

Below is an example of the feedback from Maths Mastery-focused workshop held in January 2020:

‘Good to know concepts used in class so we can reinforce at home.’

‘Learning different ways to present maths to my child. Visuals vs just numbers.’

‘Making maths accessible using everyday activities and building the confidence of parents.’

‘I have a better understanding of teaching for mastery now.’

See the attached power point for your guidance.

National Fitness Day – 25th September 2019

Year 1 had lots of fun taking part in National Fitness Day. They used BBC Supermovers to start their learning in a fun way and help learn facts! They even used their class time to practise skills from their yoga lessons. Have a look at how they did!

E-Safety!

Year 1 have been learning all about E-Safety. They have had some very meaningful discussions. The children have shared some of their thoughts on their classroom door to help promote awareness about keeping safe when online! *Click below to have a peak…*

Mothering Sunday March 2018

1TT were planting flowers as part of their Science lesson and the flowering plants were gifts of gratitude for their mothers for Mothering Sunday. We talked about being grateful for everything that our mothers do for us during the week and in our assembly. Then the children wrote an extended piece of writing about their experiences.

“I enjoyed planting because it was fun!” (Rishabh)
“My mum will like the flowering plant because she loves gardening.” (Eeshani)
“I liked planting because I got to use the soft, moist soil and decorate my pot for my mum.” (Devisha)

Number Bonds to 10 and 20  –  March 2018

Pupils in 1TT have been using concrete resources to help them understand their Maths work better. They used the ten frame and different counters to help support them find number bonds to 10 and some pupils were even able to work out number bonds to 20.

“The ten frame helps me learn better.” (Shreeya)
“Using the counters helped me find some number bonds to 20 and I was happy I could work with my partner.” (Niam)
“Finding number bonds is easy when using the ten frame and counters.” (Divyata)

Making Fruit Salad in 1TT   –   March 2018

The parents sent in various types of fruits for the pupils to make fruit salads to support our instruction writing in English. All pupils were able to choose the fruits they wanted to use, cut fruits to different sizes using chopping boards and plastic knives, and then present their fruit salads in their own presentations.

“It was so fun to make the fruit salad in school today – I will share my fruit salad with my family.” (Sheyna)
“I will remember to offer my fruit salad to God before I eat it, like I do at home.” (Swarajsinh)
“It was nice to chop the fruit myself and now I can make my own fruit salad anytime.” (Hritvi)
“I found it easier to write the instructions after I made the fruit salad first.” (Niyati)
