Look to see what we have been doing in Year 1…

Year 1 have become designers…

This week, after our bus trip, we have been making models of the different bridges that we saw. We used art straws and joining materials to make them sturdy and strong. Here are some of our models.

Our brilliant bus trip!

Year 1 children have all been given a ‘house team’ where they can earn ‘house points’ for rewards and special treats. The houses are named after landmarks around the local area. We spent the morning, in different group, on the mini bus visiting them so we knew what they looked like up close. Here are some of the photos…

Materials Hunt

Some of the Year 1 children have been investigating different materials and finding out about some of their properties. They went on a hunt for metal, plastic and wood around the school grounds. The children discussed why these materials are good materials for different jobs, such as being waterproof and hard. They used iPads to record what they find by taking photos of their findings. Here are some of the photos from their hunt.

Year 1 have been very busy!

Year 1 have been very busy since returning to school. We have been making calm bottles, painting, sorting objects into different groups, thinking about how to stay safe on the internet, counting, writing and reading! Here are some wonderful photos of our learning so far…

Autumn Adventures

Year 1 have been out and about looking for signs of Autumn in the school yard and the local area.
