Delamere Forest

Year 1 enjoyed a fantastic school trip to Delamere Forest.  We visited Delamere Forest as part of our Art topic to learn about the artist Andy Goldsworthy.  The children created their own land art inspired by the artist.  We also learnt how to build a den using an 'A frame'.  The children had a brilliant day and loved going on the bus too! We hope that you enjoy looking at our photographs.

Design and Technology - Hats!

Year 1 looked at different types of hats, what they were used for and what materials they were made from.  We then designed our own hats with a chosen theme and made them ourselves, following our designs very carefully.

Traditional Tales Day!

Year 1 have enjoyed the start of our Traditional Tales unit, we have read lots of stories throughout the first week and dressed up as our favourite characters on Traditional Tales Day!  We have created our own gingerbread men, built wolf proof houses and measured items from the three bears' house.

Design and Technology - Christmas Cards

As part of our Design and Technology work, we have designed, created and evaluated our own Christmas cards.  We used levers and sliders to make parts of our Christmas cards move.

Tiger Day!

Year 1 had a roarsome time on Tiger Day!  We made tiger masks, tiger paws, watched The Tiger Who Came to Tea, played lots of tiger games and acted out the story using our talk for writing actions.

Tiger at Denton West End Primary School!

Year 1 were very excited when they discovered that a tiger had been into our school and eaten the teachers' packed lunches! They asked Mr Hesford for the CCTV footage and went on a tiger hunt to see if they could find any clues.  We are working very hard in our Literacy lessons and have been learning all about tigers and reading The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr.
