Year 1 DT

The children have loved their current DT topic where they have learnt about mechanisms. They learnt about a lever and slider & have made some super moving rocket pictures. They will continue this learning in the next few weeks. 

DT in Year 1

The Year 1 children took part in a speaking and listening activity where they had to find our their friend's favourite fruits. They then made a healthy fruit kebab for their friend & enjoyed them together. Super listening skills as well as cutting skills where shown. Well done Year 1!

The Year 1 children have had a great first half term. Don't forget it is Superhero Day on Friday where the children can come dressed as real life or fictional Superheroes. Parents, keep an eye out on the Seesaw app for some photos of the day.

First Fortnight!


Turtles class have all settled in well and enjoying their time in Year 1. This week we have started our Superheroes topic and have been reading and enjoying Supertato. We have also been learning about the human body and talking about what makes us healthy. Mrs Lawson has been very impressed with all of Turtles Class and how hard they have been working!



Pelican class have had a great start to the school year.  Mrs Short has been incredibly proud of how well all of the children have settled into life in Year 1 and how hard everyone has been working already.  Keep up the good work Pelicans!


Miss McBride has been extremely impressed with how well Penguins have settled in during their first two weeks in Year 1. All of the children have already gained confidence and are eager to come to school each day, which has been lovely to see. The children have enjoyed completing a range of activities and exploring the different learning areas in the classroom. Keep up the hard work Penguins - it is going to be a fantastic year!


Ms Dickson has been delighted with how well the children have settled into their new routines.

Year 1 Summer News (2023)

Activity Week! 

Year 1 had a fantastic activity week and enjoyed participating in a range of activities.

Seals - what a super couple of weeks we've had!



Year 1 have had another great half term. The children have very much enjoyed our Geography when learining all about maps and creating their very own maps of our playground and our walk to the woods. They have also been busy in Art and making a wired bird sculpture inspired by artist Celia Smith. So many beautiful birds using paper curling and cutting techniques. Super work Year 1!

Year 1 Woodland Walk 


 The children went on a local walk to woods to see if they could find a Gruffalo ... unfortunately, we couldn't see a Gruffalo anywhere ! 

It was a lovely opportunity for us to decorate some woodland crowns with natural resources and we wore the crowns on the walk back to school.
