Year 1

  

 Hello and Welcome to Year 1K.

 Mrs.Kelly is our class teacher and there are 28 children in our class. We are helped by Mrs.Halshaw, Mrs.Procter, Miss.Lord,

 and Miss.Townley. P.E. is on Mondays and Thursdays. Homework and spelling are given out Fridays to be returned on  Mondays. Home reading books are changed Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Library books are changed on Tuesdays.

 This half term we have been out in the Forest school area developing skills in working as a team and solving puzzles. Here

 are some photos of us at work outside.

  This half term our theme is Knights and Castles. We have been enjoying learning about castles in the past and the parts of the     castle and what these were used for. We have planned and designed and made our own model castles.

  This half term has been very busy in Year 1. We have been finding out about Autumn time. We have been on an Autumn walk

   and collected lots of different leaves, which we used to print Autumn trees and make faces. We also enjoyed singing at the 

   Harvest Festival and some of us made fantastic pumpkins for the pumpkin carving competition. Well done to Jakob who won 

   our class prize.

  We also enjoyed the Halloween disco and our costumes were fantastic!

  It has been another busy half term in Year 1. In our theme we have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We have 

  learnt all about Pharaohs, pyramids and the importance of the river Nile. Here are some pictures of us with the death masks

  we made.

  

  We also enjoyed all the exciting Christmas events including Christingle, Christmas concert and Christmas Jumper Day.

    Spring Term

    It has been another busy half term in Year 1. We have really enjoyed our theme about pirates. We have learnt about famous

    pirates and their ships in the past. In design technology we designed and made our own pirate finger puppets, which turned out

    great.

  In Literacy to help us learn how to write instructions we made vegetable salad, which we also enjoyed tasting.

 In Computing the children learnt about input and output and programming by using bee-bots and treasure maps.

 They created a program to move a toy to a particular location and learnt how to debug a program.

   Spring 2nd half term

    This half term started with a great deal of snow but we had fun out in the forest school area. We looked for animal tracks in 

     the snow, made out own tracks with arrows for us to follow. We also tried to make giant snowballs but the snow was not

     very sticky.

  We had a great day on World Book Day. We all looked fantastic in our costumes and enjoyed a day doing lots of activities

   about the Gruffalo by one of our favourite authors Julia Donaldson. Congratulations to our class winner Cole who made a

   great Big Friendly Giant.
