Fun facts

Year 1 have been finding out facts about reindeer this morning. Once  we had found out lots of information we shared our facts with the rest of the class for us to use in our Big Write tomorrow. Can you remember any reindeer facts?


An exciting morning…

This morning Year 1 and Year 6 were given a fantastic opportunity to run the daily mile with the Wigan Athletic youth team. We got to meet the youth team players and their coaches, then we showed them how we run the mile and which way to run around the track. We had lots of fun and it was great to warm up with the players!


Number bonds

This week Year 1 have been practising their number bonds to 10 and 20. We have used ten frames and numicon to find which numbers add together to make 10 and 20, Year 1 worked really hard and came up with lots of facts!


Elf on the shelf

Year 1 have a special visitor in our classroom, he is called Eddy the Elf and he has been sent by Santa. Eddy has been getting up to all sorts of mischief while we’ve not been looking. Do you have your own mischievous elf at home? Tell us what he gets up to so we can read all about it on our blog.



We have had a very exciting day in our own clothes! First we rehearsed the Christmas play, then it was time for our ‘flashmob’ dance. We even had a special guest, Humphrey the Bear, who joined in the dancing with us! It was so much fun!


Halving numbers

In maths Year 1 have been finding out about fractions. Today we have been finding half of numbers. We worked in pairs to share the cubes or sweets equally between two. Year 1 were excellent at sharing and finding half of numbers!
