Traction Man

In literacy, we have been reading ‘Traction Man’ by Mini Grey. When on one of his adventures, Traction Man dives deep into the kitchen sink and discovers a dangerous underwater world! We recreated this in our sink and put out hands in to see what we could find!

Numbers to 10

In maths this week we have been learning about numbers to 10. We have counted objects and represented them using counters on a ten frame. We have also learnt how to draw part-whole models which are a way of representing how numbers can be broken into 2 parts. Eg. if 8 is the whole, the parts could be 3 and 5. The children have been fantastic at using their star words to explain their understanding!

WOW day!

Today we had our first WOW day of the year and it was a fantastic way to start off our new topic. We designed and created popcorn holders ready for our treat of watching a superhero movie with a tasty snack! For our maths, we were outside using our counting skills and number formation as we had to find and count up the number of superheroes on the posters hidden around the playground. We also had a special superhero PE lesson where we practised moving as different superheroes and used our balance, coordination and agility skills to train as superheroes. We enjoyed dressing up as superheroes too!


Welcome to 1GW and the start of a new school year! I hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday, I have enjoyed talking to the children about what they have been up to today. We had a fantastic start today and the children were all very excited to find out about their new classroom and new playground!

All notices about our class are displayed on the window next to the classroom door and I will be leading a curriculum meeting next Tuesday 10th September at 3:10pm to give you more information about year 1 and will hopefully answer any questions you might have. In the meantime come and speak to me at the beginning or end of the day if you have any immediate queries!
