Term 6

We’ve been very busy in term 6. In maths we’ve been measuring mass and capacity and have enjoyed doing plenty of practical work. During our topic work we’ve been finding out about which toys played with when we were younger. We designed and made sock puppets, they looked really silly! 

Term 5

Cooking for our community

Recognising foreign and UK coins.

e’ve been very busy in term 6. In Science we have been mini beast hunting and shelter building in the forest area. In maths we’ve been working with numbers all the way up to 100. We’ve used base 10 to help us build and understand these numbers. We were lucky to have a new outdoor area built in half term so we’ve enjoyed playing with lots of new things lunchtimes. 


Term 4

Year 1 have been enjoying Science week. We have been learning all about materials and their properties. We sorted materials into different groups and then went on a material hunt around school. We explored how the properties of different substances changed when me mixed them. We really enjoyed making slime by mixing cornflour and water. It was very messy! 

Term 4 has started with great excitement in Year 1. We have been finding out about polar explorers in Science. We did an experiment to find out which glove would be the most suitable for an explorer in the artic to wear. During Book Week we all dressed up in out Pyjamas for a bedtime story. We even had hot chocolate and a biscuit, what a treat!  

Term 3

Year 1 have had an exciting term learning all about vehicles. We visited Haynes International Motor Museum and looked at lots of cars old and new. Back at school we investigated how wheels work and designed our own moving vehicles. 

Term 2

Term 2 has started with a bang in Year 1! As part of our topic on stories from India we have been learning how to do Bollywood dancing. Have a look at the video below to see our amazing moves. We also had fun cooking chapattis and dhal, making Indian flags and designing our own hats.  

Term 1

We have had a brilliant start to Year One. We have settled well into Panda Class, Starling Class and Sun Bear Class and have enjoyed creating artwork of our class animals. We have also been practising some of our maths skills. Last week we went into the forest to hunt for bugs and build shelters for some of our animal friends. We had lots of fun!
