Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Have a look at all the amazing things we have been doing!

Wonderful Windmills

In design technology we have been investigating different ways to make materials move and have created our own moving windmills.

Rhyme Time!

As readers and authors we have been studying the brilliant Oi series by Kes Gray and writing our own rhymes.

Scientific Investigators

We have been investigating the properties of materials. We have been practising using the correct vocabulary when discussing what we found out.

Baking cakes for Grandma

This half term we are learning the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We started off by baking some cakes to take to Grandma’s house. I wonder who we will meet along the way?

Nativity Performance

We worked together with Year 2 to put on a Nativity performance for our families and the local community. We enjoyed getting dressed up and sharing the story of the birth of Jesus.

St Ann with Emmanuel Church visit

We visited the local church to work with Reverend Maureen and members of the local community to learn the Christmas story.

A day at the air museum

Year 1 visited the air museum in Newark to support our learning about Amelia Earhart and aviation. We had an amazing time looking at different types of planes and how they have changed over time. We even got to sit inside some of the planes!

Prepare for take off!

In history, we are learning about Amelia Earhart. We made our own biplanes in design technology.

Run, run as fast as you can…

We have been learning the story of the Gingerbread Man. We enjoyed making our own delicious gingerbread and have written our own versions of the story.

Stonebridge City Farm

We visited Stonebridge City Farm as part of our science and geography learning. We had an amazing time visiting animals and investigating different plants. The staff were so impressed with our exemplary behaviour that they emailed school to say what a pleasure it had been having us visit.


We have been working hard in PE to develop our movement and coordination.

The Orchard

We enjoyed our visit to the Orchard to take part in some outdoor learning.

Christmas experience

We went to our local church for a Christmas experience. We enjoyed meeting members of our local community and finding out all about the Christmas story and why it is an important event for Christians.

Newark Air Museum

In history we have been learning about the history of aviation. We had an amazing visit to Newark Air Museum and learned lots of interesting facts.

Agility Festival

We took part in the infant agility festival. We had a great time!
