 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


  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.

   Summer 1st Half Term

    We have started this half term by creating some fantastic art work. We have learnt how to weave using shades of blue

     to represent the sea. Then we added our finishing touches using felt to create sea creatures to glue onto the background.

    It took a great deal of patience but the results are fantastic!

  Blackpool Zoo Trip 2018

 We were very excited about our trip to Blackpool Zoo this term. We had a great day, we saw lots of the African and Asian   animals that we have been learning about. We also learnt about the Rainforest and which animals live there and we got to hold     a giant hissing cockroach. Finally we enjoyed looking at the life size dinosaur models.

  Summer 2018

   In plants week we really enjoyed making our garden based on the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We recycled wood,

   bubble wrap, wool, cardboard and even an old cap to make it. Some children made gardens at home congratulations to

   Jack Corey who was our class winner.

 STEM Week

  We have enjoyed lots of different activities this week involving science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We loved 

   the Lego workshop where we learnt how to make models and programme them to move, make sounds, make pictures and 

   change colour. We also enjoyed an afternoon of mathematical challenges which involved cracking codes, making 3D shapes

   and solving calculations.
