Welcome to 1D
Mrs Dunn visited our partner school in Waterloo, Sierra Leone over the half term break. She worked with teachers at children at Fano International School and focused on teaching phonics. Before she left, 1D and 1H wrote letters to the children in the Year 1 class at Fano and the children in Sierra Leone were delighted to receive them and write back! It was an amazing experience and we hope to welcome teachers and children from Fano school to All Saints for a visit next year!
1D has been working hard to display their All Saints characteristics in PE lessons! We show resilience through learning new things and not being afraid to try again. We show independence by flowing instructions and listening to the coach. We show communication by taking turns and playing with our friends as a team. We show creativity by finding new ways to throw, catch and move. We show curiosity by learning new skills and asking questions. We love PE!
Year 1 is very lucky that we are currently learning all about our friends is faraway places. One of our link schools is in Zhuhai, China so we are investigating and experiencing Chinese music, food, language and culture. On top of it all we are comparing the weather and climate between Zhuhai and Liverpool and learning what life is like living in a hot country.
We are having great fun tasting new foods, trying on traditional costumes and making lanterns. At home we are working on our Spring homework projects so it is exciting to see and hear all of the wonderful knowledge that our curious Year 1 pupils are learning at home as they work with their families. Keep up the fantastic learning, Year 1!
In Year 1 we are investigating addition. We are learning that a whole can be made up of smaller parts. Today we used numicon to help us find the different sizes of parts that we can use to create a whole number. It was fun to try out new combinations to see if they fit and write number sentences about our discoveries.
On Thursday we went on a walk around our local area. We looked at the different types of houses and saw that in Anfield we have detached houses, semi-detached houses, caravans, blocks of flats and bungalows. We also started to learn how to tell if a building is old or new.
We had a lovely time walking together and noticing the changes in the seasons and we took our class picture in Stanley park.

Welcome to 1D
Thank you so much to all of the children and parents for your hard work on the homework projects! The quality of the projects was outstanding and it was wonderful to see so much Maths and writing being done at home. All projects are on display in the Year One area for all to see. Children participated in a gallery walk today to look at all of the projects and they received certificates for participating. Well done 1D!
