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.

Goodbye Miss Maloney

Miss Maloney is sadly leaving DWE to start a new adventure living and teaching in Dubai.  Please see her video below for more information.

Year 1 really enjoyed creating and learning poems with Conrad Burdekin.

In ICT we have been coding using the Bee-Bots.

Year 1 enjoyed their walk around the local area.

This was part of our topic work - Houses and homes.

Thank you to all the parents and carers that came to help. 

Year 1 have set their own targets for the Autumn Term.
