Term 3

We have had a busy week back in Year 1. We have started to look at our new book in English called 'Cave Baby' and have been writing sentences with nouns (the thing) and adjectives (describing the thing) in them. We have started to look at maps for our Geography.

In Science we have been looking at the human body and all the different parts we have and the things inside us. We wrote down all our ideas. 

For History we worked on being photographers and taking our own pictures and looking at cameras and photos from a long time ago.

Term 2

We have been researching facts all about the South Pole. We recorded these facts ready to make our own fact files.

We have been very busy in year 1 working on instructions to make a jam sandwich. We took it in turns to record each other talking through the instructions on the ipads. Then we used these instructions to make the sandwiches and then we got to eat them.

Our day out at Court Farm


We had a great day out on the farm meeting all the different animals. Farmer Ed told us lots of things that farmers have to do to look after and care for the different animals. We watched the cows being milked and helped to fed some of the animals.

We have been very busy looking at mechanisms, sliders and levers in Design and Technology. We then went on to make our own sliders.

We have had an In Living Memory box from Weston Museum. It had lots of interesting objects. In it there were old coins, replica cars, vinyl records, VHS tapes, personal cassette player, DVD's, a TV annual, Camera's, telephone and old mobile phones. 

Term 1

Here are a few photos of our first day in Year 1.

We have been very busy in Year 1 over the past few weeks learning our way around the new classroom and the different areas for learning.

For our Science work we have been looking at the different materials that things are made from.

We have started learning Gymnastics in P.E. 

For some of our English work we have used the ipads to research facts about cats. We used questions we had already thought about and written in our books.

We have been busy working on the story 'The way back home'. First we worked on putting the story into a story map to help us remember what had happened then we acted out the story in small groups.

We have had a really busy week in Year 1 on Tuesday we had a bread making workshop with Aspens the company who makes our school dinners. In our English work we have been working on the Gruffalo story and wrote our own instructions on how to make Gruffalo fruit kebabs, on Wednesday we made these.
