Welcome to the Summer section of Class 1C's webpage!
This term we will continue to have lots of fun and exciting lessons at St Matthew's, so please keep checking our webpage for pictures and information of what we have been doing! 
Here is some important information that you still need to know: 
Our class teacher is Miss Connor. 
Our classroom teaching assistant is Mrs Higham.
PE days continue to be Tuesday and Friday so please make sure PE kits remain in school all week. 

Homework will be given out on a Monday and should be returned to school every Friday.
Children should continue to read at home every night as part of their homework and have their reading records signed by an adult. Children also still need to be practising their phonics every night.
Reading at home every night for a small amount of time will make a huge difference in your child's progression across all subjects. 
Keep up the hard work Year 1!

End of Year day out to Farmer Teds.
We celebrated the end of year one with a fantastic trip to Farmer Teds. 
We had so much fun learning about all the animals and had time to play too. We loved the tractor ride and the weather was beautiful so we even had a lolly ice to cool us down. 
Duffy came and joined in the fun too. We wish we could do it all again!
In D&T we have been looking at healthy eating. We looked at different fruits and talked about their texture and taste.
We practiced different cutting skills and tasted the different fruits.

Dance Competition
We took part in the KS1 dance competition with Reception and Year 2.
We performed a dance to a song from The Lion King.
Although we didn't win we tried are best and performed a great routine.
Victorian Morning
When we came into school today our class was different and the tables were in rows. Mrs Dillon was dressed differently and told us we were in Victorian school today. We had to stand up and wait until our name was called before we could sit down.
We didn't write on paper we had to copy words and numbers onto a slate to write. We had recreational time were we played Victorian games like hopscotch and hide and seek.
We then had drill time were we went outside and did our daily exercises.
At the end of the morning we stood up to sing the national anthem.
We had a visit from a lady called Priti Mistry who came to talk to us all about Hinduism. She told us the story of Ganesh and how he got his elephant head.
Miss Story dressed up in traditional clothes called a sari.
We got to try on the different clothes and we looked at different patterns which we could draw.
Mrs Mistry then sowed us henna and we all got different designs on our hands.
Royal Wedding
We have had lots of fun getting ready for the Royal Wedding. We made flags and crowns and even design wedding dresses and cake.
We had a special party lunch. It was a really fun day!
Year 1 cooking morning.
This morning we have welcomed our parents and carers to help join in with our cooking orning. 
During the morning we made lovely pizzas with some delicious toppings and we had so much fun. 
Thank you to everyone who came and joined in with our great morning.
In Dance we have been learning dances from other countries. We love to learn all the new dances with Danielle.
In Art we have been looking at the artist Joan Miro. We have looked at his surrealist art and drawn our own.
We looked at the different sculptures that he made and on the ipads we designed out own models.
In Science we're learning all about the seasons of the year and weather. Today we all wrote and recorded our own weather forecasts for the UK. 
PSHE - Baby Clinic
We had some visitors in PSHE from some babies. We learnt all about the different needles they need to keep healthy and how they get measured and weighed.
We got to have a hold and a cuddle with the babies.
Attendance is very important and in Class 1C we know how important it is to be in school every day. We even won 2nd place for the highest attendance in KS1 and won £25 to spend on a class party at the end of term. Keep it up class 1C and we could win even more.
These are the common exception words for Year 1. The children need to be able to read and spell these words by the end of Year 1.
