  • Geography week in Year 1

    Published 18/07/21, by Andy Mari

    This week year 1 enjoyed 'camping' on the school field! We were SO excited to read our books inside the tents.. some of us even pretended to have a little sleep!

    We then roasted marshmallows on the fire! We learned how to keep safe whilst camping and now lots of us would like to go with our families. For the rest of Geography week we have been learning about different types of weather.

    Published 21/06/21, by Andy Mari

    Continuing with our animal topic, this week in Art we created our own creatures. We thought about how the animal would move, what it would eat, where it would live and many other features. We then drew a design of this before using junk modelling to make our creature come to life!

  • Pirate treasure hunt

    Published 18/05/21, by Andy Mari

    Year one are learning about prepositional language, writing instructions and using adverbs of time.

    We were left a letter from a pirate saying that there had been some treasure left somewhere in the outdoor area.

    We followed the photo clues hopping over the icy squares, leaping over the crocodile pit, climbing up the rusty rigging and bumping across the rickety pathways that led us to the gleaming booty!

    When we got back to class, we wrote instructions for another pirate to find the treasure!

  • Year 1 Sea Shanty

    Published 01/05/21, by Andy Mari

    This week the year 1 children have been creating actions and dances to pirate poetry and sea shantys.

    The children listened to 'The good ship sails on the ally ally oh' and created an action for each verse. They then wrote about why they chose that action and what it means.

    We also looked at the poem 'Yo Ho Ho' and identified rhyming words and then thought of our own to add and extra section.

  • Pirate day in Year 1

    Published 14/04/21, by Andy Mari
    Ahoy there!
    Year 1 had a fantastic introduction to our new Pirate topic this week.
    We enjoyed a whole day of DT where the children designed, created, tested and evaluated Pirate ships with a moving windmill sail.
    The finished products looked fabulous, and we sent them sailing across the seven seas (paddling pool)
    What a brilliant way to start our summer term! We are looking forward to all our pirate based learning that will follow.

  • Y1 showing resilience in PSHE

    Published 27/01/21, by Andy Mari

    As part of our PHSE topic, we have been learning about resilience and perseverance.

    This week we focused on learning new things and how sometimes we have to stretch our thinking. This usually means trying over again and again, stretching a bit more and a bit more each time. We then made our very own ‘stretchy’ flowers. We discussed how important it is to keep trying even if we found the task difficult.
