Year 1 Class Blog 2023-24

Another lovely week in Year 1, we enjoyed having the instruments out in our music lesson. We’ve also loved using the Whiterose maths app to develop our maths skills.. In art we used pastels and crayons to add details to our watercolour backgrounds. On Thursday and Friday we were pleased to have Miss Christie with us as well! Have a lovely half term break!

We have been enjoying our Fire of London learning this week. We developed our water colour skills to create a fiery background and then painted on the outlines of buildings to create artwork for display. These will be up for you to see at parent’s evening. We are also looking forward to welcoming Miss Christie to Year 1 next week!

We have been using our ball skills in PE, in the role of attackers and defenders. In maths we have been solving additions by counting on on the number line.

This week we have enjoyed the story of Owl Babies and had a go at typing sentences on the desktop computers. The children have found out about the spacebar, enter and backspace keys!

Happy New Year! It has been lovely to see all the learning happening in Year 1. We have particularly enjoyed exploring with water colour paints. Please could you send pumps back into school if you haven’t already done so.

Another lovely week to finish our first term in Year 1. We have really enjoyed pur party and toy day! A big thank you for all the lovely cards and gifts, we wish you a wonderful Christmas and new year!

Feeling festive this week with our Nativity, Christingle service & Christmas lunch!

Another lovely week in Year 1. We walked  to church for our Advent service and we learning about shapes and making patterns.

We added the decorations children had made to the tree today!

We had a wonderful day at Lotherton Hall, meeting Florence Nightingale!

We enjoyed some watercolour painting this week, in response to our interfaith day.

We had a great time running our laps to raise money for Children in Need, thank you for all your donations!

We have been making moving pictures using sliders. We made them move up and down and side to side.

We painted poppies for Remembrance Day. You can see them in our classroom window.

We had a message from Beegu this week!

Thank you to everyone who has returned trip slips so promptly. Please let Miss Riches know if you can volunteer to help on the trip.

This week we have been using cubes to find one more and one less. We also enjoyed our first reading morning! On Friday we looked great as rockstars too!

Clay Minibeasts

Peter Dalrymple (PDalrymple) on: Year 1 Class Blog

Before half term Year 1 made some wonderful minbeasts out of clay as the culmination of our recent learning in art. We left them to dry over the holidays and today we painted them, choosing and mixing our colours carefully. Well done Year 1!


Science - All About Plants

Peter Dalrymple (PDalrymple) on: Year 1 Class Blog

This half term in science we have been learning all about plants, with a big focus on learning the basic parts of plants and their functions. Today we used magnifying glasses to more closely examine some of the plants in our school grounds and discussed which parts we could see. We then did a matching activity to practise identifying seeds and the plants they come from.


Henri Rousseau

Peter Dalrymple (PDalrymple) on: Year 1 Class Blog

In art today we have been learning about the art of Henri Rousseau. We found out a bit about the artist, and looked at his famous painting, Tiger in a Tropical Storm (Surprised!). We used oil pastels to extend the foliage that Rousseau painted, looking in detail at the colours and shapes.  


Drawing Minibeasts

Peter Dalrymple (PDalrymple) on: Year 1 Class Blog

Year 1 have been using their observation skills to look carefully at photographs of minibeasts. Then they used their tracing and sketching skills to make minibeast drawings. Well done Year 1!


A Coronation Celebration

Peter Dalrymple (PDalrymple) on: Year 1 Class Blog

Year 1 have had a brilliant time today celebrating the coronation of King Charles III! They have made crowns and Union Jack flags, drawn some super detailed pictures of St Edward's crown and even done some coronation-themed phonics. Have a great bank holiday Year 1!
