An overview of the year...

Welcome back to school, from Miss Gregory, Mrs Howard and Mrs Rees (PPA teacher). We are a class of 24 hardworking children, who love to learn. Here you will find lots of pictures and videos celebrating all of our hard work. The page will also have important  notices  and  any upcoming events.  P.E will be on Wednesday and Friday so please make sure that your child has their P.E kit in school at all times. Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned to school completed by Wednesday.  Please continue to read with your child at least twice a week.  

Art - Colour Creations

Year 1 have been learning about primary and secondary colours this half term. We have been experimenting with colour mixing and discovered that the primary colours can be mixed to make secondary colours. Year 1 have also been learning about famous artists that paint in only primary colours, such as Piet Mondrain with his compositions in red, yellow and blue. We were inspired by this work and have since created our own art work using only primary colours. Enjoy looking at the pictures below of year 1 artists in action:


We have been learning all about the story ‘Supertato’ .  We have been predicting our own endings and using the small world characters to make up our own stories. Once we read the story, we loved it so much that we wanted to make our own Supertato’s.  We will be starting to do some amazing writing about our own Supertatos. Click on the powerpoint below to see some of our amazing work .



We have been learning lots of different stories from the Bible about how God created such a beautiful word for us to live in.  We have been retelling these stories using art, drama and small world resources. We made some posters in the making area to show how people can care for God’s world.


We have been learning all about the place value of numbers. We have been ordering numbers and counting forwards and backwards, filling in the missing numbers. We have been working on one more and one less. We have been using lots of different resources such as; number lines, Numicon, 100 squares, counters and part, part whole model. This is helping us to become independent learners and soon we will be able to chose the resource that we think helps us learn best.  Last week we started using the Part, Part Whole model to help us with number stories. We will be looking at addition and subtraction in the next half term. 



We have been working on basic ball skills this half term including, bouncing and catching. We have really enjoyed our PE lessons and are much more confident bouncing and catching a ball with control. We have also learnt all about the effects of exercise and how it makes your heart beat faster.  We know that exercising is important to keep you fit and healthy.

The Local Area

We are developing our map skills by looking at maps of the local area. We started looking at our own classroom and we worked together to develop a messy map using keys to represent the different things in our classroom. We then went on a walk around the local area, spotting the key things in the local area.  We then made our own large maps of the local area. We worked together to present our map to the rest of the class.

DT - Papier Mache

Year 1 have studied the papier mache work of artist Martina Reis this half term. They worked collaboratively to interpret the theme ‘If pictures could speak’ and decided to create four pieces to each represent one of the seasons. Year 1 used newspaper and coloured tissue paper to create a facial representation of each season, they finished each piece off by adding leaf details in appropriate seasonal colours. If these pictures could speak what do you think they would say?
