Year 1

Monday 4th April: Class Trip to Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve

Our Outdoor Learning: We have been spending lots of time outside in Year 1 for our science, geography, art and even our writing topics! Here are a few of our highlights.

Tuesday 1st March: Signs of Spring! A very special visitor came to Year 1 today! Mrs. Weed, who is a vet, brought in Jeff the Hedgehog to meet us all and to help us to learn about hedgehogs. Jeff is blind, so he lives at the hedgehog rescue centre as he can't look after himself properly in the wild. He soon made himself at home in our classroom, and the children asked lots of interesting questions about him. We are going to build a hedgehog house in the wild area of the field!

Here we are following a recipe to make hedgehog bread on No Pens Day Wednesday. Tomorrow we are going to write our own set of instructions!

FRIDAY 8TH OCTOBER: #Take10ToRead Challenge: We watched a live assembly with children's author Tom Percival. He taught us how to draw lots of different facial expressions just by changing the eyebrows!

Following the assembly, we took 10 minutes to enjoy the lovely range of books in our classroom. Some of us enjoyed the cosy new canopy in our book nook.

Welcome to Year 1! 

Our topic for Autumn Term is Superheroes, and our classroom is full of busy, super-learners. 

We hope you enjoy these photos from our first month in Year 1! 

OUR FIRST MONTH IN YEAR 1: THERE'S AN EVIL PEA ON THE LOOSE! Where better to start our investigations than with our class text "Supertato" by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet? Here we are making traps to capture the Evil Pea. Afterwards, we wrote sentences about our plans. The Evil Pea doesn't stand a chance!

OUR FIRST MONTH IN YEAR 1: This term's science topic is "Animals Including Humans". Here we are drawing round each other and labelling the parts of the body. We are looking forward to doing some investigations into our senses next week!

OUR FIRST MONTH IN YEAR 1: "We Are Treasure Hunters". This is our computing unit for this half term, where we will be creating, recording and debugging programming the Beebots and one another to follow a set of instructions to get from here to the treasure!

OUR FIRST MONTH IN YEAR 1: Our first unit in RE is Creation. Today we learned and acted out the story of St. Francis of Assisi and the birds. We then made bird feeders to take home as a reminder of the story and its message that we are all connected as One with God. Miss Tibbits made a lovely video of us acting out the story, however she now needs to find a way of uploading it successfully. Watch this space!

OUR FIRST MONTH IN YEAR 1: Getting busy with maths!
