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 Margarson, Miss Ridgeway, Miss Crompton, Mrs Carter, Mrs Edwards and Mrs Taylor and Miss Skudder.
We will be updating this page regularly, so keep your eyes peeled for all the exciting learning we will be sharing with you.
Year 1 have been learning all about church. We have looked at the special features within a church, what they mean and even acted out our own christening! We played the parts of Mum and Dad, godparents and the guests!
Year 1 dressed up as our favourite character and posed in our very own catwalk show. We took a photo of each other using iPods and sent them to print. We looked at our photos and wrote a list of top tips to improve them.
We re-enacted our catwalk show and remembered our top tips to improve our photographs.
Next we are going to learn how to edit our photographs.
Year 1 and 2 held a Christingle making workshop with parents. Christingles are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle.Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand the importance of Jesus and its relevance at Christmas time.
Afterwards we held a traditional Christingle parade on the school playground with children, parents and grandparents whilst singing Christmas carols.
