Woodford Primary School

Year 1 - Hazel

Welcome to the Hazel class page. I'm Miss Aldridge and here we will be sharing pictures and information so that you can see what we've been learning in school and share our adventures!

The First 3 Weeks in Year One

 

We are delighted that the children have had such a great start to their learning in Year One. They have already settled well to the new routines and are becoming familiar with our team of teachers, teaching assistants and others who help us in school.

 

We are encouraging the children to become more independent and are teaching them how to be responsible for changing their own reading book. We like the children to read their book three times, at home with an adult after which they will be ready to choose a new book. They can do this at the beginning or end of the day. We're sure that the children will remind you that every read counts towards their rainbow reading certificate.  If your child has a letter or other form of correspondence to hand in at school, perhaps you would be kind enough to remind them to do this. Again this increases the children's sense of being grown up and responsible for their own things.

 

PE days for Year One are Monday and Wednesday for the Hazel Class. If your child attends an after school sports club such as multi-skills or Tai Kwondo, it may be easier to send them with an additional set of sports clothing. On some occasions children have gone home wearing their P.E. kit after a club and then become upset because they've forgotten to bring it back into school for a P.E. lesson.

 

 

Homework

Children should be reading 3 times a week and have weekly spelling which are handed out on Friday and tested on a Wednesday. Details of what needs are printed inside the cover of the book. We thank you for your support with this. We are also encouraging children to go on 'numbots' a few times a week to help support their number facts and recall.

Teddy Bears' Hospital

We loved having our visitors from the Peninsula Medical School. The student doctors taught us a lot about our bodies and keeping healthy.

 

Whole school writing competition celebrating Thanksgiving Day

28th November 2019

 

The children all tried really hard in composing their senses poems on Thursday of this week.  The children used their imagination to wonder what they might, see, hear, smell, taste and touch at a Thanksgiving meal. 

 

Our class winners are Thomas and Eva. 

 

Enjoy their poems below:

 

I wonder what I can smell?

Perhaps it is the smelly, pale gammon.

I wonder what I can touch?
Maybe it is the white, soft, smooth feathers.

I wonder what I can see?
It could be the crackly, noisy sea.

I wonder what I can hear?

Maybe it is the voices.

I wonder what I can taste?
Perhaps it is the loud, oinky pigs.

By Eva. 

 

I wonder what I can smell?

Perhaps it is the orange, smelly, pale carrots.

I wonder what I can touch?
Maybe it is the windy, wavy sea.

I wonder what I can see?
It could be the high, scared cliffs.

I wonder what I can hear?

Maybe it is the crashing, wavy, wavy waves.

I wonder what I can taste?
Perhaps it is the yummy, yummy turkey.

By Thomas

 

Lights, Camel, Action!

Didn't they do well?! We were delighted with the fantastic achievements of all of our children for this year's  Christmas performance. The dances were fun  the singing was beautiful and everyone remembered their lines - and there were a lot of them for some children! Well done everyone. smiley
