Spring Term 1 - 2021


Year 1 have worked incredibly hard this half term. They have been working on instructions in literacy and have even followed some instructions to make their own jam sandwich. Can you tell if we enjoyed them? We have also been working on measurement in maths and took ourselves outside to measure the height of things in our playground. We even measured each other!


Our topic this term has been ‘Bright Lights, Big City’ and we have learned all about London and the Great Fire of London. The children learned how to follow and give directions using maps of London.


We also enjoyed British science week and completed a task for the 3 little pigs, building and experimenting with different materials to find the best house for them

Autumn Term 2 - 2020


Y1 have enjoyed their first term of the year. They have been very busy! In literacy we have been studying the rhyming book ‘Oi Frog’ and creating our own work on it. 


We have had some special visitors for a DT lesson and created our own Ginger Bread houses with Hepp DT.


In science we have been learning about our bodies, including our senses. We smelled, touched, listened and saw lots of different things. We even tasted some lemon but I don’t think Y1 were big fans. We have also enjoyed the December weather with a very snowy playtime!
