Year 1

Phonics

Year 1 are working really hard on our phonics at school and it would be great if you could also play some phonics games at home. Here are some links that will support your child with their Phonics learning.

Pop up toys in DT

Year 1 children have been designing and making pop-up toys to share with their friends. They looked carefully at different types of toys and then had a go at making some themselves.

Diwali

Year 1 pupils celebrated Diwali by making divas. They modelled the divas using clay and then painted creative and colourful designs.

Art

Year 1 children  have been learning about portraits. We’ve had a go at recreating the Mona Lisa and then had a go at drawing a portrait of our friend.

Science

Year 1 children have been learning about their senses and the children completed a taste test. I think we can tell what they thought of the tastes by the looks on their faces!

Visit to Tamworth Castle

Year 1 pupils learned all about castles and those who lived in them during a visit to Tamworth Castle.

Battle of Bosworth

The children learned all about the 2 armies of the Yorkists and Lancastrians and really enjoyed enacting the historical drama.

Gorse Hill Farm visit

The Year 1 pupils wrapped up warm and set off on foot to the Gorse Hill Farm, all very excited to see and interact with the animals. For many children, due to covid, this was the first time they had seen animals so close up. Their faces were a delight and many overcame their fears, stoking and feeding the animals throughout the day. The day ended with a soggy march back through the puddles. What a great day!
