One Adventure - Nightline

Year 1 had lots of fun joining in with the Nightline game.  All the children were blind folded and they had to navigate their way around the obstacle course using the rope and their communication skills.  They all did a fantastic job!

Sports Day

Year 1 had a fantastic morning joining in with Sports Day in their country teams.  They completed a skipping race, running race, egg and spoon race and javelin race.  Well done to everyone for trying their best and congratulations to Team Greece who won.

Magic Dragon Eggs!

On Wednesday, Year 1 discovered that some magic dragon eggs appeared in Mary's Garden! We thought carefully about what to do and created comfy nests for them.  We also designed our own dragons - look at our fantastic drawings!

Autumn Hunt

As part of our Science topic, we went on a welly walk around the school fields to see what we could find.  Year 1 spotted lots of different things like berries, bugs and coloured leaves.

Skipping Workshop

Year 1 had lots of fun playing skipping games and learning how to skip.  Keep up the skipping at home!

Penguin found in ice at school!

When Year 1 arrived at school one morning, they found a penguin who was stuck in a block of ice! We asked lots of questions about how the penguin had got there then we came up with a plan to rescue him...

Tiger Day!

Year 1 had a brilliant time on Tiger Day!  We dressed up as tigers, made tiger masks, ate tiger paws, played tiger games and made little tigers from plasticine.  Have a look at our fantastic photographs! 

Tiger visits Year 1!

We had a very exciting start to our week - a tiger came to visit our school! When we came into school on Monday morning, we found out that something had eaten Mrs Moore's and Mrs Barry's packed lunch! Mr Hesford showed us the CCTV footage of the cheeky tiger.  We were all very excited so we decided to go on a Tiger Hunt around school!

We will be doing lots of interesting work about tigers in our Literacy lessons.


This week in our topic work, we have been looking at old and new toys.  We also drew pictures of our favourite toys!

Welcome to Year 1

We have loved being back at school, seeing our friends again and our teachers.  We started the year reading the book 'While we can't hug' and completed lots of brilliant work on friendship.  We have also painted our self portraits and created our targets for this term.
