Week 5

Lots of fun and excitement in Year 1 this week! We started our week with lighting the first candle on our Advent wreath and opened the first door of our calendar. Behind each door is something we can do each day to make the day special for the people around us.

On Tuesday, we received a visitor called Eddie the Elf. Eddie is a kind Elf who has asked us to help him to spread cheer and love during Advent. Reception Class had a visit from the tree fairies who said our Elf took their lanterns. On Wednesday, Eddie was missing and a letter from the tree fairies said they had elf-napped him! We crept into Reception playground and found him taped to the tree. The children wrote amazing letters to the Reception children to ask for their help. Eddie has returned to continue spreading happiness in Year 1!

For National Tree Week, we labelled different parts of a tree and took some tree rubbing to help us to identify different parts of the tree. Then the children had a great time squeezing paint to make tree for each of the seasons.


In Maths we have been comparing two numbers by finding how many more and how many fewer.

We have been busy practising our dances for our Christmas Play and will be filming next.
