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.

KS1 pupils sing at Abbey House Care Home

The Key Stage 1 children walked down to Abbey House Care Home in the cold and snow to sing to the old ladies and gentlemen. The older generation were inside in the warm, but they really enjoyed the children’s beautiful singing and smiling faces. When it began to snow it made it even more perfect!

Christmas songs for Year 1 and 2

Parents and family were entertained by our Year  1 and 2 children who sang a series of Christmas songs and carols beautifully. The children really enjoyed singing with accompanying actions and the faces of the parents showed how much they enjoyed the performance (many joining in too!).

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!
