Remembrance Day 2020

We learnt about why we have Remembrance Day. We remembered those who have died before by making poppy wreaths and giant poppies. We think that we are getting good with the scissors now!

African Drumming

We had fun learning to sing an African song and to play the djembe drums.

 

Courtesy Cup Winner - 6.11.20

What a GORGEOUS GIRL! We are so happy this week to award the Cup to this lovely girl, who is a real example of perfect manners and courtesy. She never forgets to say "please" and "thank-you" - and we really do mean NEVER - and she is always kind and friendly to the other children. She says "excuse me" when she wants to speak in school, waits her turn in class with the others and her behaviour is truly excellent! If anyone wants to know the behaviour we look for in our Melling children, then look no further than Indie - WELL DONE Indie, enjoy your very special day!

6th November - Week 10 Update

Education City homework has resumed this week and will continue now until Christmas. It will be run as before - set every Friday for the following Friday - and I hope you are enjoying completing it children! Reading will continue daily until Christmas - the children are really improving with this extra reading - but after Christmas we will move to three times a week for everyone. I will let you know around Christmas time which days your child will be reading. Purple Mash, the online learning platform, has also opened its annual Christmas Card Competition - if you think your child might be interested, please log onto their site for details.

Have a lovely weekend

Halloween Fun in Y1

We had a really great day - all dressed up and lots of party games, party food and treats! We LOVED the pass the parcel but our favourite was the silly tricks in our trick or treat game!

Week 8 - 22nd October Update

We made it to the half term finally! It was quite strange at first but we all soon settled down into the new normal of Melling School. The children have earned a rest now, after all the hard work  been doing in Y1, so there is no homework for the holiday week, just reading books to be done during the holiday and returned as normal on the first day back. Have a lovely break children (and parents!), enjoy Halloween and see you all again soon.

Best wishes

Miss Roberts

Cullen Cup Winner - 16.10.20

I had no hesitation in awarding this week's cup, as this girl is such a worthy winner! Her handwriting was good at the start of the year but, since then, she has taken all the advice she has been given and now it is EXCELLENT! Her work is just lovely and she shows real determination to succeed and a genuine pride in it. Her books are already filling up and they are beautifully presented and illustrated. She listens when she is given instructions and is a good partner to work with in class! Finally, real positivity and a great attitude to school make this Y1 girl outstanding in her class - well done, you should be very proud! x

9th October - Week 6 Update

Hope you are well and enjoying homeworking those of you who have been completing work at home recently. I have really enjoyed looking at your completed homework online and at the work you have been sending in - well done Molly, Indie, Jack, Will and Emilie! Just a reminder that children should be sent in with snacks every day (enough for your own child - you know them best) for the morning and afternoon breaks. Also, please ensure your child's drink bottle and uniform are clearly labelled. Education City has been set as usual for this week and Google classroom activities for those children at home - anyone who is super keen can also complete Google Classroom activities, even if they are still working in school. PARENTS, PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE SIGNED UP TO GOOGLE CLASSROOM ONLINE - if you have lost your child's log in details, please see me and I'll give it to you again. MANY THANKS parents for your excellent support with home reading - this really is an exceptional class for home reading and we are breaking records this year! PARENTS, IF YOU ARE NOT LISTENING TO YOUR CHILD READ, OR IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNING THE READING RECORD, PLEASE TRY TO DO THIS EVERY NIGHT.

Many thanks

Have a great, safe weekend

Miss Roberts

LOST PROPERTY

We still have two school t-shirts and four school jumpers (from the last four weeks) in our lost property box in Y1. Please check this box if your child is missing an item of uniform.

Apter Cup Winner 2.10.20

What a great winner we have chosen for the James Apter Cup. We award this cup to those children who show determination to succeed in everything they do. This means that this great Y1 boy never gives up when the work is hard or takes a long time, ALWAYS tries his very best, follows instructions in lessons carefully and ALWAYS tries hard to make his work better and better each day! WOW! What a great Melling spirit this boy has! He is improving his work already in Y1 because he works so very hard and we are just so proud of him for this - he is also a lovely, friendly, polite boy too - PHEW, so many great qualities! WELL DONE TED - YOU REALLY ARE A MELLING STAR X

30th September - Week 5 Update

Nothing has changed this week with the normal homework and reading - Education City homework has been set as normal this week and reading routines are the same with children reading every day in school and every day at home.

Just to let you know that additional work has been set online for children who are self-isolating - on Education City and on Google Classroom - you have the log-ins for Google Classroom already but I will re-send them anyway. PLEASE CONTINUE TO COMPLETE NORMAL EDUCATION CITY HOMEWORK, ONLY COMPLETE THE ADDITIONAL ONILINE WORK IF YOU ARE FORCED TO STAY OFF SCHOOL.

Many thanks

Miss Roberts

What a Great Builder!

WOW! That's such a great model!

Stretch it, Squash it!

Developing our skills with the play-do!

FUN with PHONICS!

We've been trying really hard with our letter sounds in Y1. We've been revising all the sounds we think we know and learning some new ones too - SUCH HARD WORK! Miss Roberts also says we are working together amazingly as partners and in teams!

24th September - Week 4 Update

Thanks again parents for supporting your children with the home reading and weekly homework - most children are reading every night so THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! A new unit of homework has been set on Education City today and this will run as usual for a week - children who have been completing this homework have been telling me how much they are enjoying the activities! Just a reminder that you DO NOT need to send pumps in for P.E. days - please just send children to school wearing trainers those days.

many thanks

This week's Courtesy Cup goes to Olivia. What a worthy winner! Olivia has lovely manners and always remembers to say PLEASE and THANK-YOU to her friends and to the teachers. She is courteous to her friends, playing nicely, taking turns and helping others whenever she can. Olivia is helpful in class to the teachers and always does her bit to help at tidy-time.

Y1 Pro Skills Sport After School Club

Fun playing in Y1!

We've been getting to grips with the toys and choosing activities in the Y1 garden and classroom.

We have had fun helping children get better in the Medical Centre, we've been making models and we've played in the sand and water...SUCH FUN!

Counting Sets up to 20

We have been practising our counting skills and making sure that we can recognise all the numbers. We were great!

Y1 Worry Dolls

Click on any image to enlarge it:
We talked about what a worry is and if we had any. Some of us had a worry or two and some of us didn't have any worries at all! We made Worry Dolls so that we could talk about and solve all our worries.

11th September - WEEK 2 Update

PARENTS - PLEASE SEND IN A BAG SO LAST YEAR'S BOOKS CAN BE SENT HOME.

Just to let you know the first homework has been set this week on Education City and Education City log-in cards have been attached to the front of yellow reading record diaries. It will last for a week and new homework will be set again next Friday. Please send in a message A.S.A.P. if you cannot access this.

4th September Week 1 Update

Hopefully we are back to more of a normal routine now - the children have been very good, settling down to their new classroom and to all our new ways of working!

Reading Routines:

Reading will begin Monday 7th in class every day and books will be sent home every day to be read at home - either a new book or the same one to be repeated, in order to build fluency.  Once this book has been read at home, please sign the reading record and return it with the reading book the next day so that a new book can be sent home. 

Lunches/Snacks:

School dinner is currently a packed lunch only and we can provide one for every child. Because of the needs for additional hygiene, morning snack is limited to 10.30, just before playtime and lunch is served at 12.00. We hope that we will be receiving a fruit delivery daily, but this hasn't started yet, so please ensure your child has a morning snack. During the afternoon, children can snack at any time (they will be asked to wash hands before this) so please send in plenty of snacks for the whole day for your child. It is also important to send in an individual drink bottle daily, as milk is currently not being provided for the children.

P.E.:

As stated before, P.E. will be on Monday and Thursday and it will start next week. Please send children into school already dressed in outdoor P.E. kits on both these days.

Homework:

Homework will be set online on Education City every Friday and this will begin next Friday,  11th September. Log-ins will be attached to the front of yellow reading record diaries. Any phonics sets, Magic Moments books etc. that were sent home in YR will no longer be sent home and these are now yours to keep. We will also be sending home your child's books from YR next week and these are also yours to keep.

General reminders:

Children are encouraged to have their own hand sanitiser and tissues to keep in their individual drawers in class but do not require pencil cases as they have individual pencil pots.

 

Hopefully this is all clear, but any questions please feel free to ask me.

Have a lovely weekend

Miss Roberts

Welcome Back Year One!

It's good to be back and it's great to think that we can all get back to learning in school with our friends again!

 

School starts at 9.00 am and children should be dropped off at the school gate.

School finishes at 3.20 pm and children should be collected from the playground (the class T.A. will bring the children onto the playground).

 

P.E. days will be Monday and Thursday - please send children into school dressed in outdoor P.E. kits (joggers, t-shirt, trainers/pumps) on these days, beginning Monday 7th September.

 

We all look forward to seeing you again and to a fun, exciting term ahead!

 

Miss Roberts and the Y1 Team x
