Year 1 2020 - 2021

Mr McPhail

Year 1 So Far...


My goodness, we've all come a long way in the past few weeks:

We've been spending lots of time perfecting our classroom routines and behaviour.

We’ve learnt about the seasons and the Earth’s tilted axis.

We’ve been diving deep into the subject of number, from the ground up, making sure that our mathematical concepts are really well understood so we can fly when it comes to addition and subtraction later in the term.

Mr McPhail has done lots of reading with us individually and in groups and we have worked extremely hard on improving our writing and reading skills. Our phonics lessons have been intense: Lots of handwriting and learning to use our ‘helping hands’ and ‘sound buttons’ when composing sentences. And we’ve been rehearsing poetry for the (virtual) Harvest Service.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, and government advice, we are only able to change our home reading books once a week - on Friday’s we get new books sent home and they need to be back in school by the following Friday so they can be ‘quarantined’ over the weekend.

Mr McPhail is busy setting up a new online learning platform called Google Classroom for which we will all have our own login, so watch this space!
