This Week in Year 1 (22/01/18)


When we came into school this morning we found some eggs in our classroom!  In Literacy this week we are learning about how the eggs become baby chicks.  We are going to do some writing about the different stages and at the end of the week we will show you some of it.


This week in Year 1 (15/01/18)


In Topic this week we were learning about how arable farming works in each season.  We had a lot of fun trying some different vegetables such as courgettes, parsnips and butternut squash.  Some of us found a new favourite vegetable!  Jasper really enjoyed the courgettes and Scarlett loved the butternut squash!

This Week in Year 1 (8.1.18)


We found a letter in the classroom today!  Somebody tidied our messy classrooms over the weekend.  Who could it be?  It's a mystery. 

This Week in Year 1 (4/01/18)


Welcome back from the Year 1 Team!  We hope you all had a restful break.


Something funny has happened to our classrooms today! 


Ben: "It is covered with hay and mud."


Jasper: "There are potatoes on the floor."


Alexis: "I feel really mad our classroom is a mess."


Sara: "The classroom looks different."


Ava: "I can see a scarecrow on the floor."


Aleck: "Why is the straw on the floor?  The light, yellow potatoes are on the floor."

This Week in Year 1 (27/11/17)


We have been using our senses to write some poems in Literacy.  We read some different poems together as a class and collected vocabulary to create our own poem about a cloud.  Here are some of our poems -



This Week in Year 1 (20/11/17)


In Literacy we have been planning our own versions of the Jack and the Beanstalk story.  We have had lots of fun thinking of our own characters to use!


Rehan decided to make his story backwards and have Jim the Giant living in a tiny cottage and climb the beanstalk to meet big, scary Jack living in a castle at the top.

We have been practicing finding more and less of different numbers in our Outdoor Learning. 

This week in Year 1 - 6/11/17


After writing reports about what happened to our classroom in Literacy last week, a culprit has been identified!  Jim the Giant!

In our lessons this week we have been working hard to describe him, using lots of lovely adjectives.   


In Science we have been learning about our senses and labelling different parts of our face.  We really enjoyed playing this game -

This Week in Year 1 - 30/11/17


We came back after half term to find that something had happened to our classrooms! 


The tables and chairs were tipped over and there were big, white footprints on the floor.  We found yellow and orange feathers on the floor and some golden glitter.    


We searched for clues to try and find out what had happened.  Some of us thought the Giant had come down from the beanstalk looking for his golden hen!  We are going to collect all the evidence together and write a report in our Literacy lesson.
