Autumn 2017
















The children discovered something magical in Year 1 classroom this week! Who do you think might live here?


Wilma came to visit us this term and we learnt all about wild hedgehogs. We discussed why they had spikes on their backs and what they eat. We loved looking after Wilma and even invited her to our Woodland Party at the end of term!




For our new topic, 'Enchanted Woodland' Year 1 went to the classroom in the woods. Look at all the exciting things we saw and did!

Autumn 2016

During year 1’s topic of The Carnival of Animals; we have been discussing mammals. The children have created mammal masks and collages to describe the features of lions and elephants. 



Year One walked across the road to the church to visit Reverend Nick. We learnt all about Baptism and asked Reverend Nick some very important questions. This helped support our learning in our RE Topic, 'Belonging'.



Spring 2017

In RE we looked at the story of Palm Sunday. Here you can see the children waving their palm leaves as Jesus rode in on a donkey!  Some children then went on to retell the story in their own words.








Year one made a super effort for Red Nose Day! They donated £1 and enjoyed a cake and juice at break time.  Well done everybody!







We have been learning how to tell the time in maths. The children were unsure how long a minute was, so we have been doing lots of activities which needed completing in one minute so the children became more aware of the duration. Here the children are counting how many star jumps they can do in one minute!


We drew a huge clock face on the playground and used ourselves as the minute and hour hand! We had lots of fun working as a class to show o'clock and half past times. 


In Science we have been learning all about plants and finding our what plants need to grow. We planted our own seeds ensuring we put them in soil, in a warm, light place. We have been watering the plants and measuring them every week are are very surprised at how quick our sunflowers have grown!



We enjoyed walking around the school grounds searching for signs of Spring using our tick lists.


We have been studying the artist L.S.Lowry this half term. The children had a chance to paint their own Lowry inspired pictures and they look fabulous!
