Year 1



November 2017

On the last day of the Autumn 1 term, Year 1 had a Science wow day. The children were learning how to use the correct materials to make a model car. First, the children designed their cars on paper, listing the parts needed and what material would be best suited. The children discussed the size, how many wheels, shape and how to fix an axel to the body. Using rulers, the children applied their maths knowledge of measurement and ensured that axels where long enough to allow the wheels to turn. Once built, the children took their cars into the hall and tested how far they would travel. With the help of the Year 5 and 6 Science Technicians their results were recorded. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and learnt many different skills.

Year 1 Nov(1)

September 2017

The 2017 academic year has got off to a great start. The children have made a speedy transition from reception to Year 1 and are settling in to their new curriculum extremely well. This terms topic is themed around journeys and is referred to as the ‘The Naughty Bus’. It is designed to teach the children about the history of transport and geographical terms.  Using Google maps the children have begun to understand the concept of a ‘bird’s eye view’ and how to create a simple map of their playground. Maths has involved the children using concrete objects to solve mathematical problems such as bead strings, multi-link and Numicom. They particularly enjoyed ordering numbers, making different number bonds and identifying odd and even numbers. 

Thank you to Hazel class who performed a fantastic assembly telling all of Year 1 and Year 2 about the maths and the maths resources they have been studying this week. The children were really excited to see such an amazing audience of parents. 

Thankyou to Elm class for their wonderful class assembly. It was great to see so many parents come in to support their child's first performance in Year 1. The children performed the story of The Gingerbread Man.
