On this page you will find out about all of the interesting and inspiring things that have been happening in 1F. In our last half term we will be exploring a painting called 'Breakers yard' for take one picture, where we will respond and then hold an art gallery. After this we will go on safari and exploring the different animals and their habitats. To finish the year we will look at our local community and our local heroes. In class on a learning journey with your child you will find Miss Roberts, Mrs Pelc, Mrs Wilkinson and Miss Cheetham. We look forward to sharing our learning with you.

We have had a very busy day with a visit from the woodwind trio and Asda. We enjoyed listening to different styles of music as we travelled to the seaside. With Asda we designed. made and cooked our own pizzas, although our favourite part was eating them!

We all had a wonderful time at Ponderosa yesterday. We enjoyed stroking the llama's, watching the meerkats and we all wanted to help the poorly raindeers. It was very hot, so an ice lolly was well needed at the end of the day. Which would be your favourite animal?

In Year 1 we have had great fun in our math lessons learning left and right and quarter and half turns. We set up obstacle courses for each other and the Beebots. We have also written our own versions of 'Where the Wild Things are'. The fantastic homework helped with this and gave us all lots of ideas.

This we have been responding to the picture 'Breakers yard' by making our own cars and using oil pastels to create a backdrop. In maths we have exploring 2D and 3D shapes. We have really enjoyed learning the story 'Where the Wild Things are' and acting it out.

We have had a great day outside today. It began by creating math sentences using found objects to replace numbers, it was very hard trying to solve each others! We then went out in the afternoon to compare our trees and leaves to those found in a rainforest.

Look at our fantastic homework! This week we have all been busy at home designing and making maths games. Today we shared our games with each other and had great fun doing it.

We had a great time down in the garden looking at how much our plants had grown. We measured our beanstalks and the tallest one was 25cms! After we had measured them we planted them in the vegetable patch so that they could continue growing.

We have had a wonderful day today celebrating VE day. We had our first visit from our school mascot Laney the Lion. We investigated what happened 70 years ago, looking at photographs and recreating them today.

We have been checking on our beans this week and they have finally started to grow, so we are very excited to see what they grow in to. We have designed and made out own stick puppets which we used to help us change the story of 'Jim and the beanstalk'. One afternoon whilst we were out we received a huge letter from the Giant! He wanted us to use our new gardening skills to design him a garden.

We are all very eggsited for Easter and were amazed by the fantastic eggs you have designed and decorated, they are all very unique. The children have really enjoyed putting together their performances and thank you to everybody who came to see them. Keep looking out for the signs of Spring as the seasons change.
Friday 20th March 2015
This week we have enjoyed using weighing scales and investigating capacity (we got a little bit wet!). Today we turned our backs to the solar eclipse, then we got our plates and put them in the sunlight. It felt as cold as an ice cube and it got dim outside.
We had great fun at Sandal Castle! It was very windy climbing up to the top and looking out over Wakefield and the ruins of the castle. Mr Cassar told us all about the castle dungeons as we looked around, he even tried to lock us in!

Thank you for the fantastic work making posters for Internet safety day, these are very informative and creative.

Year 1 have changed Cinderella in to a modern fairy tale this week with some very interesting outcomes. The children decided Cinderella would go to the cinema or ice skating, take a limousine or maybe just phone a taxi and to end they would go out for dinner! This week we have also been designing and making our healthy snack boxes to use for healthy snacks we bring to school. We then made delicious fruit kebabs, yummy!
Friday 30th January 2015
We have begun our new topic on 'Castles' this week which has really ignited the children's imagination. They have been looking at the monarchy, the features of castles and building and labelling their own castles. Connected to this in English we have begun learning the story of Cinderella and describing the characters. We will be looking at and reading many other traditional tales with the children to support them in writing their own story at the end of the half term.
