Year 1 Kingfisher Class

Week Commencing 8th October 2018


Kingfisher Class have had a brilliant week this week and have really shown how independent they are becoming. In mathematics they have been exploring measuring, using classroom objects to see how long things are. For example, how many paperclips long is a book? The children have also been practising using a ruler and getting used to standard units of measurement. 

As autumn has definitely arrived, the children were excited to find different leaves to create pictures from. Their artwork is wonderful. We have continued to learn how to spell days of the week and have learnt more about seasons. The children have been discussing what happens to trees at different times of the year. 

In PE we have continued to practice our ball skills and have been making up movements and dances to represent animals.


If you are completing the FoW Christmas card fund raiser please return to school by 16th October.   You spelling pattern this week 'or' words and your maths homework is focused on counting in 1's.


I hope you all have a safe and fantastic weekend
