Year 1

Wow Event! (14 images)

We started our ‘Conquering Castles’ topic by a fun filled afternoon in the hall. We made crowns, split pin knights, decorated cupcakes to make them look like castles, made armour and designed clothes for a prince / princess. We can’t wait to learn more!

Year 1 have been learning about the Easter Story, we were lucky for Rev Tim to join us for the afternoon. We thought about Easter symbols and the Easter story by making palm crosses, salt dough crosses, chocolate playdough hot cross buns, prayer hands and paper plate silhouette Easter scenes. We look forward to seeing Rev Tim soon.

Farm Trip (8 images)

Year 1 had a fantastic day at Lower Stock Farm. Despite a little rain we went bug hunting, made dens and had a tour of the farm. The new puppy ‘Bear’ was very playful and friendly.

Year 1 update (19 images)

During maths, Year 1 have been very busy learning about ½’s and ¼’s practically. We shared sweets equally, found a half of all sorts of things including a bottle of water, made pizzas with the correct fraction of toppings on and even had a fractions picnic ….yummy! We all know from our activities that half a cake is a bigger option than a quarter!

Healthy from the inside (1 images)

As part of Children’s Mental Health Week, 1MR made a ‘friendship potion’. We carefully thought about what we wanted to put in it and then bottled it for our class! Some of our ingredients include kindness, love, helpful, sharing and patience. Friendship helps to keep us healthy on the inside and out.

Mini-celebration event. (16 images)

To end our history lessons about ‘Terrific Toys’ we invited our parents and carers into our Toy Museum. We showed them some old toys and games as well as some new toys. Some of us even showed them a ‘Punch and Judy’ show. We hope they enjoyed their visit to our museum.

Year 1 started their ‘Terrific Toys’ theme off by watching Toy Story. However the real Buzz lightyear appeared and gave us a fantastic afternoon. He played games with us, taught us a song and told us a story.

Art Sculpltures (7 images)

Class Y1HM enjoyed making art sculptures using natural materials – in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, a Scottish artist. They took inspiration from the Norman shields and swords they have been investigating as part of their Conquering Castles topic.
