WELCOME TO OUR AMAZING
KEY STAGE ONE
This year our wonderful KS1 is made up of three classes: Wren, Puffins and Woodpeckers.
Woodpecker is a Year 2 class, Wren is a Year 1/2 class and Puffin is a Year 1 class.
We are learning to tell the time in Key Stage 1.
Last week we made clocks and learned to read:
O'clock, half past, 1/4 past and 1/4 to times.
The more practice children have in telling the time, the better.
You could help a lot at home by looking at the clock at key times of the day:
Wake-up time, breakfast time, bed-time, tea time, times of favourite TV programmes etc. This will orient the children to the sequence of their day and also to the passing of time until when you say "5 more minutes" the children might begin to recognise how long or little time that is!!!
Here is a teaching clock to help:

HOLLY HILL JUBILEE
We are so excited about our Jubilee 1990s and 2000s topic. We have been producing our very own 1990s non-fiction booklets.
This week we will focus on 1990s films and The Lion King is our chosen film. Our English lessons are all based on this film this week and we are super excited to tell you all about it!!
In science this week we have been learning about natural and man made materials. We have looked at how some man made materials are made and where natural materials come from.
We have looked at major events, toys, television and fashion.
Our science topic this half term is materials.
