Welcome to Year 1!
Welcome to the Year 1 page. Please take the time to have a look at what we have been doing so far in Year 1 and also what we will be doing as the year progresses.
Our Teaching Team consists of Miss Ridgeway, Miss Margarson, Miss Crompton, Mrs Carter, Mrs Edwards, Miss Skudder and Mrs Taylor.
We have been learning to code on the computer.
We had lots of fun learning how to direct the characters using North, East, South and West.
If you wanted to do this with us at home, the website is below.
We invited our parents in this half term to help us with our topic. We are learning about the Great Fire Of London so our parents helped us to make a collage. First we painted the beautiful night sky(before our parents came), then we ripped red, yellow and orange tissue paper to make a fire and then we very carefully made houses from black strips of paper.
This look fantastic!
As part of World Book Day, we had to learn a poem to perform. We worked in groups and on our own. We had to learn the poem and actions, we all worked very hard.
I'm sure you'll agree, we did a fantastic job!
What materials are waterproof?
In year 1, we are learning about all the different types of materials. We wanted to know which materials are waterproof so we decided to make a coat for our teddy bears. We made a coat from plastic, fabric, metal, paper and tissue paper. We couldn't wait to test to see which ones worked. We came to the conclusion that plastic would be a good material for a coat as the water didn't absorb into the material like the others!
