Year 1

Tropical World - Jeffers

Barrie Class loved sports day! They participated in a number of events and the winners were Sinfield House! 

During our journey around the world, we learnt all about the first flight and the Wright brothers. In D.T we practised the different ways to attach the axle and the wheels and then we designed our own vehicle choosing how we would attach the axle and wheels. We then created our own vehicle. Didn't we do a fantastic job!

D.T Making a vehicle

As part of Well being Wednesday, we have made shakers to use on the stage during provision time. 

In Year 1, we are very excited for Easter. Today we went on an egg hunt, we had to read the clues and then find the eggs. In each egg was a letter and we had to work out what the word said. It spelt out the word Easter.

We are going to write a recount about our Easter egg hunt.

English - Easter egg hunt

In topic, we have recapped what we learnt at home and have named and labelled the different continents. We really enjoyed this activity.

Labelling the continents.

In Maths, we are learning to match the numeral to the number written as a word. We have played lots of fun games to help us to read and write the numbers as words. 

To help us really understand number, we are also practising making 2 digit numbers using resources such as Base 10, place value counters, part part whole models and bar models. We can now talk about how many tens and ones are in the number. 

Place value - Tens and ones.

This week we are linking our English to our topic through the book Handa's surprise. The children really enjoyed listening to the story and laughing when the cheeky animals took the fruit out of Handa's basket. We all got to taste most of the fruits that are in the story. We tried banana, orange, mango, papaya, avocado and pineapple. I am really proud of everyone for having a little taste of all the fruits.

Fruit tasting - Handa's surprise.

Welcome back Year 1! We are very excited to see you back in school. In the first 2 weeks, we are going to be doing lots of well-being activities.

We are going to continue with our journey to Africa.

Christmas Crafts Day


The children in Year 1 have really enjoyed our Christmas Crafts day. They had fun making their four seasons calendar which they painted using cotton buds and made their own salt dough Christmas tree ornaments. We look forward to painting our decorations when they emerge from the oven (hopefully in one piece!)

All the staff in Year 1 would like to welcome back all the children. It is fabulous to see you all. 


We have got an exciting Autumn term ahead of us - We're going on a journey to Storyland.

In Maths we are going to be focussing on counting forwards and backwards to 10, recognising and writing numbers to 10 and adding and subtracting single digit numbers upto 10.

In English, we are concentrating on refining our motor skills. We will then look at how to form letters correctly, so that by the end of the year we have amazing handwriting.

In Geography, we are going to be learning about compass directions and creating maps with a key. 

In Science, the children are going to be exploring different materials related to different traditional stories such as The Three Little Pigs.


Please note that we will open our classroom doors at 8:45am and 3:05pm. On a Friday classroom doors will be opened 1:50pm.
