Year 1 afternoon tea

Year one celebrated the royal wedding in style on Monday 21st May. We wrote instructions for preparing a scone, learnt how to cut a scone into halves and quarters and then spread jam all over our scones. We had a great day learning about the wedding and even had our own mini wedding. smiley

Our Celebration of Learning in Year 1 - It's Phonic Time! Our mini teachers helped parents understand our phonic learning and then together created their own Alien and Alien words.


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.

Exit Point

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!

Poetry performance

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!

In Literacy, when we write a story, we learn the story through pictures and then act it out.
