Year 1

Fire Station visit

Year 1 pupils had a very exciting morning when visiting the Fire Station. As you can see they experienced the cab of the fire engine, the firestation itself and of course spraying the water from the hose. That looks hard to me!


Carol concert

Year 1 pupils entertain us each Christmas with a rendition of well-known Christmas songs and carols….aah……. The audience, is of course expected to join in!


We look forward to our Christmas carol concert and all the fantastic arts and crafts that we will be taking part in to get ready for Christmas.

Autumn 2- Celebrations and Festivals. 


This term we are learning about a range of festivals and celebrations. Our first celebration was Diwali, we have already created beautiful diva lamps and Mehndi patterns, typically seen during Diwali.


Bonfire Night 

Our next celebration was bonfire night and we have created some fantastic pieces of artwork and writing to portray the excitement of the fireworks.


Autumn 1 

All About Me 

Our first topic in our new class was ‘All About Me’. We learned about our bodies and completed self-portraits using paint. We also looked at our five senses and enjoyed completing a range of tests to decide what we like and dislike using our sense of smell and taste. We loved the taste of the chocolate but we didn’t like the smell of the vinegar!


Little Red Hen

In Autumn 1 we also celebrated the harvest festival and during this time we studied the story ‘The Little Red Hen’. We really enjoyed retelling the story and pretending to be the little red hen by making our very own bread

We are now in year 1! 

Now that we are in year 1 we have been practicing our fancy, pre-cursive handwriting. We are all doing really well and we are very proud of our achievements. We learn our letters based on the letter families.
