Hello Year 1


This week we have been performing our 3 Billy Goats Gruff musical composition.1L got a rocket point that got them to 100! Well done! We will put some clips up if we can!


Below are some of the autumn ice sculptures that we created on Friday and explored today! The children were in awe!

Our Autumn Walk


In maths we are comparing measures using taller/shorter, longer/shorter, heavier/lighter, more/less (capacity - how much something holds). Please find fun ways to be practising these words to embed them.


We are learning new phase 5 sounds, these are alternative spellings (graphemes) of sounds (phonemes) we already know:

ay, ea, ie, ou, oy, ir, ue, aw, wh, oe, au, ew

Please continue to practise:

ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo/oo, or, ar, er, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure


We are writing descriptive phrases about our autumn ice sculpture.

Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic development remains a key part of our everyday learning as well as specific learning.

We continue to focus on our Golden Rules and learning about each other, our similarities and differences. We are voting for our class councillors this week.


At Puss Bank, we believe learning to read is the gateway to all learning. 

All children will get new books this week, please read with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in their organiser (also coming home this week).

You will be told your child's reading day this week, however please ensure your child has their organiser and books everyday.

Play-based Learning

We will continue to practise our learning through carefully planned play based continuous provision.
