Looking for inspiration for what to do on a wet weekend??

We've just updated the art and design page in our learning resources area, so take a look if you need a bit of inspiration for what to do on the next rainy day this half term!  

Aliens love underpants!

On Monday we started learning the story 'Aliens love underpants!' We loved it so much we decided we wanted to learn it off by heart. We added actions and created story-maps to help us. We have been working hard all week to remember the story and today we shared it with the rest of the school in assembly! Well done [...]

Learning our bonds to 10!

Today we have been looking at how many different ways we can share 10. We started with two hoops and 10 bean bags and explored the different ways we could show 10. We then worked in pairs with a tower of 10 cubes and everytime we took one away we would find the number bond. Year 1s have been using [...]

Jam sandwich making!

On Monday we had a letter from Winnie the Pooh arrive! He told us he was coming to visit and he would like some sandwiches. So, we have spent the week writing lists and instructions on how to make jam sandwiches. Today, we finally got to make them! We were very impressed with how well they remembered each step they [...]

Pictures from this week in Class One

In phonics this week we have been focusing on our formation and ensuring we are taking time with each letter that we write. After lots of practice, these are some lovely examples of our hard work! In music we have been looking at making different rhythms and counting the beats. After our music lesson today, three of our year 1s [...]

Phonics and Maths this week

This week we have been working hard on our phonics and maths. We have tried out a new game called 'Splat' which we love! We work in teams and Miss Smale reads a word from the board, the first person to splat it with the swatter wins a point for their team! This is helping us speed up our letter [...]

Class 1’s Planet Experiment

We have been learning about the different planets. Today, we created our favourite and watched them fizz! We used bicarbonate of soda, water, food colouring and vinegar. 'I liked the smell!' - Fin 'I liked it when it erupted!' - Minnie 'It's like a volcano!' We chose the colour red for Planet Mercury, 'because it's close to the sun', rolled [...]

What do astronauts need?

We have been getting stuck in to our new Space topic. Today, we watched the first moon landing. We thought it was amazing to see, 'but why is it so blurry?' some of us asked! We came up with a list of questions that if we could, we would ask an astronaut. - Have you seen any aliens? - How [...]

We’re going on a bear hunt….for REAL!

This week we have loved reading the story 'We're going on a bear hunt'. We now know the story *almost* off by heart! So, during our golden time this afternoon we put our wellies on and we went on a bear hunt! We went through the swishy, swashy grass...through the deep, cold river (kind of), through the oozy mud, braved [...]

Pride of School Day 3…

It was lovely to see so many of our parents, Governors and staff come in to decorate our school this weekend. What a brilliant day! Class 3 had a repaint over the summer and it looked so good with its 2-tone grey that our Governors decided to call a 'Pride of School' Painting Party for the entrance area of school.  [...]
