What an amazing day out. The students and staff had an amazing day visiting all the animals and feeding them. We all had turns petting and feeding different animals. We also found out a lot about different farm animals eg what they are called and what their babies are called, how big they grow and we even found out how milk is taken from the cows. We all had a blast of a time! 

Imagine That Trip 

we went on a trip to Imagine That where we played and learnt all about science. We used all our senses and learnt all about light and dark. We had great fun making snow, and creating our own magnets.

We started our learning in Forest school this week. We loved being outside and learning in a different way. We can't wait for more learning in the Forest school. 

This week used used tools, we were fantastic at sawing.

MMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm toasted marshmallows.

This week we turned our wooden disks into necklaces. We were brilliant using the tools. 

We whittled and tree painted in Forest school this week. 


Easter Cards 

Our class had so much fun creating our own Easter cards. We used different materials and wrote our own little message inside. Look at how well they turned out!

Fairy Tales 

After learning about the death and resurrection of Jesus. We have also been discussing how this story links to new beginnings.

 We all decided to work together and make our own Easter Gardens. We used cardboard for our hill and covered it with soil. We all got a turn to put some soil on and some of us sprinkles some grass seeds. We then used sticks to make a cross and placed it on top of our hill and added some rocks for decoration. We will water our garden and watch as the grass grows and gives us hope for our new beginning.

Fairy bags

What a great day! 

We designed, stitched and decorated our very own fairy bags. We chose our own shape, colours and decoration for our magical bags then we stitched our material together to make our own bags. We worked really hard and had so much fun and it really payed off. Just look at how cool our bags are!

History Day 

British Values Day



We read the "Barnabus Project" and created great work around this book! We dressed up as an animal and had great fun through out the day.


Spring Term 1

We have been taking part in so many activities so far. We have looked at different fruit, discussed what is healthy and what is not. We also talked about where it comes from and where it grows (underground or on a tree). We used our creative art skills to sketch our fruit. 

We have also been looking at our world map. We know the 7 continents and the 5 oceans. We can also point out where England, Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland is on a map. We can also match them to their flags. We have also talked about their capital cities and used the Ipads to show our understanding through another matching game.

We have discussed the word Algorithm and we understand that it means instructions. We have been making our own algorithms for the bee-bots. We made the bee-bots move by pushing the buttons on his back and trying to get him to a place on the map. We also tried making shapes with the bee-bots.

In maths we are on our second book, we are learning how to count on from a random number up to 50. We are also learning how to add and takeaway big numbers like 13 by taking away the 1s first then the 10. Others have been focusing on our numbers too 10. 

In English we are writing more and more adjectives and are using our sounds. We are writing neatly and are even trying to add question marks and exclamation marks. 

Through PE, we have a day with commando Joe and a day for dancing. We are dancing to the season. 


Values Day 

on values day we wore our own pink clothes because the value we focused on was LOVE. We talked about how we show love through kindness. We each wrote out how we are kind and typed it on the computer. We made the writing beautiful and the size of writing to what we wanted. We printed our work of and stuck it on a leaf. The leaf is now on a real tree in our classroom on display. 



We loved our first session with Commando Joe, we can't wait for next week 

We have been having so much fun in year 1 this term!
