Today, we had a visitor in Year 1. Teddy came to us asking for our help. He knew we had been studying different materials and their properties. He said that he was about to go on a journey but he was afraid of getting wet (it was a very rainy day!). Could we help him by designing and making an umbrella to keep him dry? The children decided that the material we were going to use needed to keep water out. We found out that the material needed to be WATERPROOF. Here we are testing the different materials to see if they are waterproof or not, then making an umbrella for Teddy, using the waterproof materials.

Our KS1 Harvest Festival. Thank you for all the kind donations :)

Week beginning 30th September 2019


This week in Year 1, we have continued our work on 'Pirates Love Underpants' in English. We have been practising using sentence features by writing silly sentences using nouns or 'who' words. In Maths, we have been counting backwards from different numbers and finding missing numbers in sequences. 

In preparation for our local walk, we completed a walk of the school grounds and drew the different landmarks we could see. This will help us to complete a map of our school grounds. We have enjoyed practising the songs for our Harvest Festival in Music lessons.

Week beginning 9th September 2019

Week beginning 2nd September 2019


This week Year 1 have a had a great time becoming familiar with their new surroundings and routines. We attended our first ever House Meeting and gave some brilliant new ideas for our school. 

We have drawn and labelled our families, discussed what we did over the summer holidays and things that are special to us. We have practised counting forwards and backwards from different numbers and played games involving 1 more than and 1 less than. 

We have created our own paper plate portraits to add to our Goldsworthy class display (feel free to come and have a look when you come to pick your child up!).

Next week we will kick start our new topic all about pirates!
