Year 1 2020 - 2021

Year One

Number of pupils: 30

Teacher: Mrs A. Brunyee

Teaching Assistants: Mrs S. Chiu & Miss F. Lavelle

Hello Year One, 

Our new class topic is: African Adventure!

Take a look at these pictures, do you know where this is? 

This is Kenya. Kenya is a country in East Africa. It includes the savannah, lake lands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley and mountain highlands. It's also home to wildlife like lions, elephants and rhinos. Would you like to live there? Perhaps we need to find out a little bit more first! 

The first text we are going to read together is called Lila and the Secret of Rain by David Conway & Jude Daly. For months the sun has burned down on Lila's Kenyan village. It is too hot to gather firewood, too hot to weed the garden, even too hot to milk the cow. Without rain the well will run dry and the crops will fail. Lila is so worried that when her grandfather whispers to her the secret of rain, she decides to go and talk to the sky herself.

Our second text is called Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne. Handa decides to take seven pieces of delicious fruit to her friend, Akeyo, who lives in the neighbouring village. But as Handa wonders, I wonder what fruit Akeyo will like best?, a series of sneaky animals steal something from Handa's basket, which she's carrying on her head!

Christian Value: Creation

 

 

Class Prayers

Lunchtime: For all we eat and all we wear,
For daily bread and nightly care,
We thank you Heavenly Father. Amen

Hometime: God in Heaven, hear my prayer;
Keep me in thy loving care,
Be my guide in all I do,
Bless all those who love me too. Amen 

 

UNICEF Rights and Responsibility: Article 15

(Freedom of association) Every child has the right to meet with other children and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other children from enjoying their rights.

 

 

 

School Council

Our council representatives were chosen by the class in a democratic vote. Each child performed a speech to persuade the class to vote for them. Well done to everyone who put their names forward. Our winners were:

 

 

Golden Apples

We have promised to try our best to gain our 5 leaves for: Service, Community, Justice, Friendship and Creation.

Children's University

At the end of Year 1, all credits that we have earned move forward to Year 2. We gain credits through attending after school clubs, participating in sports teams for the school, jobs we do in school and also by having our passports stamped at learning destinations for example: museums and clubs outside of school.

 

Physical Education

Children will require their PE kit in school at all times.
They will need a red t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. Children will not be able to participate in P.E if they do not have their P.E kit in school.
