Spring 2

What is Once Upon a Time?

This half term, we are going to travel back in time to find the answer to 'What is Once Upon a Time?'.

The children shared what they knew already about the question and came up with lots of questions to help them find out more (please find in the project folder).

The children have made a great start to their question by creating some amazing homework on their own once upon a time timeline of their journey from birth to present day!

Pop into class to see their work displayed over the next few weeks and watch how year 1's journey back in time develops. 

06.01.2020 - We've gone crazy over shapes this week!



The children put their knowledge and skills of 3D shapes to the test this week. They explored the properties of the shapes and investigated which shapes would be the better shapes to help a tower stand up. 

Autumn Term

Create Project


Over the Autumn term we will be focusing on our create "Do we see beauty in different ways?" We will be exploring beauty within nature and looking at how the trees, weather and behaviours of animals are effected during the seasons. As our project develops we will be answering lots of questions, generated by the children, and creating a variety of artwork to reflect our thoughts about the beauty of nature. Towards the end of our project, we will shift the learning focus to looking at beauty within one another and thinking about whether social perception influences our opinions. 

What a great start to the new school year! The children are settling in well and enjoying their new classrooms in Year 1.


Year 1 have been busy learning about the different human body parts and how they move. We had fun using each other as mannequins to help label the parts correctly.
