Welcome to Year 1
We have a very enjoyable term coming up filled with exciting activities. Some of these include gymnastics, learning about our bodies, Spanish and taking a journey back in time discovering what our parents' toys were like.
Today is the day we try something new, the world is ready for Year 1’s to blossom and bloom!
Let’s take a learning adventure with our body and mind, discover senses and tenses and even polar adventures.
Detective work will solve the differences between toys, old and new. Don’t forget about dressing up and acting in role too.
Throughout the seasons become confident with your numbers, be a mathematician or poet, they all walk among us!
So get ready, Line up, your year awaits! We’ll be right here, waiting at the gates.
A few things to remember:
There will be a spelling test every Friday.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and is to be returned on Wednesdays.
PE kits should be in every Thursday.

We are very lucky, a Yoga Teacher has been coming into school to teach the children Yoga. The children are enjoying it so much! This adds to the Yoga time that we do every afternoon after Lunch time.
Over the last few weeks we have been conducting a science experiment. We were investigating to see how much rain fell over a period of two weeks. We made our own rain gauge, placed them into a suitable area to collect the water and waited to see what happens. Over the two weeks the gauge's collected 11cm and 12cm of water! Amazing! We can't wait to start our next investigation.
In Science we have been looking at "Our Bodies". We have been exploring our senses, how our bodies work and how to keep ourselves fit and healthy. The children have been conducting smell and taste experiments, hearing, touch and looking challenges. For part of our healthy body lesson, the children made healthy versions of Pizza, using a wrap for a base, sauce and cheese. The children have enjoyed being scientists. Below are some photos of the experiments...
First Few Weeks...
The children have made a brilliant start to the first few weeks of the school year. The children have been experiencing new subjects such as Spanish, History and have been exploring mindfulness through Cosmic Kids Yoga.
In Spanish the children have been learning the song "Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"! They are very quick learners so why not ask them to sing it to you!
The children have been busy during English and Maths and have been introduced to some new maths equipment which they are very excited to use and experiment with.
We have had a brilliant first few weeks and we cannot wait to see how the children develop over the next few months!
