All the staff in Year 1 are extremely pleased with the way the children have entered the new school year. They are getting used to different ways of learning and are coping really well. So far, they have experienced group Guided Reading and whole class Maths No Problem lessons. We have started the term with the well-known story of The Gruffalo, and are currently helping him to look for a new place to live. We have all been given roles to help him, from estate agents to architects and builders. Now we have just got to get building!

We are currently preparing for our board […]

We have been tasked with finding out why the fireworks have been going off and what they mean. This week we have received a mysterious package – a torn up photo of a man from the past. We have been thinking about who this man might be and […]

We were very brave and had a feel of all the different animals! We enjoyed learning all about what they like to eat, where they like to sleep and where they originally came from. What an exciting time we have had in Year 1!
What a busy time we have been having with Stickman! The children were contacted by Mrs Stickman who had wondered about the beautiful lights she had seen in the sky. We found out all about Guy Fawkes and bonfire night and even produced our own Firework pictures using different techniques. Here are some of our brilliant works of art. After we had read the whole story, Mrs Stickman was very keen to find out where on earth Stickman had been for the year so we retold the story. We talked about how we knew that Stickman had […]
