Winter Day

We have been celebrating Winter Day in Year 1. The children have learned about the importance of the season and what changes can be observed. They were able to use their knowledge to create fantastic poems, senses cards and produced picturesque winter paintings.

In year 1, we have been doing lots of great practical Maths activities. We had lots of fun and have also developed our Maths’ skills.

Year 1 2020-2021


This half term, the Year 1 children have become budding scientists. With the theme of going on holiday, the children have been learning all about hot climates. The children investigated how to protect themselves from the weather, preserve water and the different animal habitats. The first experiment, which was conducted over the entire school day, involved identifying which material would insulate and preserve ice. Then children learnt how too much sunshine could be harmful and so they designed and made their very own sunglasses. We are all looking forward to finding out more about warm climates during the rest of the term.



The new academic year has started off extremely well, with the children settled and adjusting to the new Beechwood School routines without any hiccups. 

The children have thoroughly enjoyed their learning so far. In PSHE, the children have been learning about different emotions,  practising a sad face and drawing emotion faces.

For Maths this half term, the children have been learning all about place value and mastering number. We have been working out missing numbers using Numicon and solving word problems involving numbers. Thank you to all the parents/carers for feeding back to us how happy their children are.


Year 1 Trip to Harlington

This term the children enjoyed their first school trip. As part of the Geography curriculum the children have been learning about the difference between villages and towns. The children were extremely excited as they had the chance to travel by train.

On reaching their destination the children had a tour of Harlington Village.            

The children were surprised how different life was in the village. Most children commented on how quiet it was with so few cars and people being about. They also got to see some local landmarks such as the war memorial and learn about the history of the village.

Despite the cold weather the children had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The Year 1 team would also like to thank all the parents that volunteered to make this a successful trip.

This half term has been a very exciting time in Year 1. The children have participated in many different learning activities. Firstly, they thoroughly enjoyed the walk to the shops on Marsh Road, where they investigated how the local area has changed and the impact of human made features as had on the environment.

Furthermore, in Year 1 will be learning how to write a setting description. To immerse the children fully in their story “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”, the Year 1 team took the children on their own ‘Bear Hunt’. The children experienced the different settings that are told in the story such as; walking through long grass, water, mud, a forest (the Quad) and even a snowstorm, albeit fake. Eventually, the children found the bear in the deep dark cave.  All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were extremely engaged in their experience.

Welcome to Year1.

September finally arrived and the children have made an incredible start to the academic year. They have all, without exception, demonstrated amazing maturity by returning to school happy and ready to learn. Without a tear in sight, the year 1 team could not be prouder. Wasting no time the children got down to their learning and showed how they were able to use different math resources to support their understanding of Number.

In English the children are focusing on character descriptions through the story of the Gruffalo. To engage the children’s imagination they were tasked with creating their very own monster. As you can see from the picture below, they were thoroughly engrossed.
