A walk in the park.

Thank you to all the adults who came to help us. The children had a great time at the park exploring and finding lots of signs that winter is coming. The noisy parakeets were a favourite of the children because they were green and loud!

Observing seasonal change is part of our science and the children enjoyed looking at the mushrooms, berries, leaves and conker shells that we found.

The art work they produced was amazing and is on display in our class.

Guy Fawkes and bonfire night

Year 1 had great fun making pastel pictures of fireworks and using bubble paint and powder paint to create some artwork.

They also learnt about the history of bonfire night and how to be safe.

English in Year 1

We have just finished our first topic using the book ‘The Incredible Book Eating Boy’ by Oliver Jeffers, the children made their own books and did not eat them like Henry did.

The class have now started to read ‘My Granny went to market’ it is a counting story where Granny visits many countries and buys something special in each place.

Year 1 visit Eltham Environmental Centre.

On Monday 14th May the children got the chance to go and learn about seasonal change. The children looked around the woodlands at the colours of Spring and collected samples of every colour to create a special collage. While we were there we had a chance to feed Darwin and Wallace the pigs, this was one of the highlights for the children. As a class we explored the woods and made nests for birds. Year 1 had a wonderful day. 

DT in Year 1


The children have been making safe vehicles for Humpty Dumpty to travel in. They used boxes and had to think about how to create a safe space for him, ways to stop him from moving around when we tested them with actual eggs.
Year 1 very much enjoyed making and sharing ideas with each other as they worked. They were able to help each other by holding objects in place or with cutting out holes so they could actually fit Humpty Dumpty into the boxes.

Ice sculptures

The children in year 1 as part of their art topic learned about ice sculptures. We wrote instructions in English for how to make a sculpture and talked about the material of ice in science. We think the sculptures look amazing, its a shame they had to melt!

Science in year 1

The children have started a new topic learning about materials. For our first lessons, we explored materials found around the school. The class talked about what they were, how they felt and how they could be used. The children had a great time exploring the materials using their senses.

 

 

Year 1 visit the church

The children went to the church to re-enact a baptism at the end of our sacraments topic, the whole class enjoyed using the actual baptismal font and those of them who had been to a baptism shared their experiences with the other children.
