Previous Years Work
Discovery Time 2021
Here are some pictures of our amazing Year 1 children working
hard and completing some super independent work!
For part of our Science and Geography topic, we went on a walk to see what spring features we could spot. We loved it!
We tried our best in our phonics quiz and made ourselves, our teachers and adults at home very proud! Because we were so amazing, our adults at school treated us to a special breakfast to celebrate. It was tasty!
We had lots of fun celebrating the Queen's Jubilee!
As part of a whole school celebration of 'Earth Day', we learnt all about how we can look after our amazing planet. We made Earth headbands. How cool are they!?
Some special visitors came to teach us how to give CPR. We listened very carefully and practised with our teddies.
World Book Day 2022
The children enjoyed celebrating ‘World Book Day!’ They all came to school dressed as their favourite character from a book. We spent the day reading some of our favourite stories and completing lots of fun activities to celebrate World Book Day.
The children enjoyed taking part in an ‘Author Zoom’ activity. We listened to the story ‘The Museum of Marvellous Things’ which was read to us by the real author, Kristina Stephenson! We learnt just how important it is to always use our imagination as they are often filled with magic!
The children in Team 4 also had a ‘Buddy Zoom’ call with the children from Team 12. They read us Mrs Houldsworth’s favourite story, ‘The Gruffalo’. We really enjoyed it!
Show and Tell - Toys
The half term we have been learning all about old and new toys as part of our topic ‘Toys from the Past’. The children brought in some of their favourite toys from home for a show and tell activity. They enjoyed talking about their favourite toys and showing them to their friends. It was lots of fun.
As part of our new topic ‘Pretty Plants’, we have planted sunflower seeds! We are going to observe them growing and fill in our plant diary each week. We have also written a recount for our guided writing activity.
The children enjoyed celebrating ‘Maths Day’ at school. This year our focus was ‘Shape’. The children created some amazing artwork using different 2D shapes to create face artwork and then painted it using the water colours.
Dress to Express Day 2022
The children in Year 1 enjoyed celebrating ‘Dress To Express Yourself Day’ as part of Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week 2022. They all came to school wearing their favourite outfits or favourite colours to express themselves. They all looked amazing!
International Women's Day 2022
On 8th March 2022, we celebrated International Women’s Day across the school. In Year 1, we wrote about what we had enjoyed learning.
Science Experiment 2022
As part of our Science lesson, the children enjoyed carrying out an experiment! We performed a simple test to see which materials would best protect an egg. The materials we used were carboard, a fabric sock, bubble wrap and foil. Firstly, we made our predictions. Next, we carried out the experiment making sure it was a fair test. We wrapped each egg up carefully using the different materials and we dropped the eggs from the same height. Then, we checked the eggs to see which ones had cracked. We wrote our results down and then made a conclusion. We concluded that the cardboard was the most protective material for the egg!
Chinese New Year 2022
The children in Year 1 enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year this week! We talked about the Chinese culture and how Chinese people celebrate Chinese New Year. We also enjoyed watching videos and reading books. We even created our own Chinese lanterns! Have a look at some pictures below.
Jam Sandwiches 2022
As part of our Jigsaw PSHE lessons, we have been thinking about our dreams and goals and things that we want to achieve. We decided to set ourselves a goal – to be able to make a jam sandwich! We worked with our learning partners and created small steps, like stepping stones, to help us achieve our goal of making a jam sandwich. We enjoyed eating our jam sandwiches at the end - they were delicious! We then talked about how it felt to achieve our goal. We all felt really proud of ourselves.
Mr Potato Head 2022
As part of our topic this half term, ‘Toys from the Past,’ the children in Year 1 completed some work on the film ‘Toy Story’. The children enjoyed watching some of the film and talking about their favourite characters. For their creative challenge, the children created their very own Mr Potato Head using lots of different materials. Take a look at some of our super characters below…
The children in Year 1 enjoyed learning about and celebrating the Christian festival of Christmas! We enjoyed completing lots of fun, Christmas activities and we also had a visit from a very special guest… Father Christmas himself! On Thursday 16th December we had a Christmas party in our classrooms. It was so much fun! We all came to school wearing our fantastic party clothes and we played some party games like ‘Pass the Parcel’ and ‘Musical Statues’. We danced to some of our favourite songs and we also enjoyed some yummy party food. Take a look at some pictures below…
DT Spaceships 2021
The children enjoyed using different materials to create their own spaceships during our DT lessons. We tested the materials first to see which one would be the best for a spaceship. We then decorated our spaceships using lots of craft materials such as pom poms and foil. It was so much fun. Look at our amazing spaceships below.
Road Safety 2021
As part of Road Safety Week, we had some special visitors in school. They were traffic wardens they talked to us about what they do to keep us safe on the roads. They also let us try out their bikes.
