Summer 2018

Little Red Riding Hood

Over the last few weeks, Year 1 have been exploring the traditional tale of 'Little Red Riding Hood'.

On Monday 23rd April we became Little Red Riding Hood and visited the woodlands to see what we could find.

Here is what we got up to

  • We went on a plant hunt 
  • We made LRRH's house and Grandma's house
  • We did observational drawings of the plants
  • We made mud pies to take Grandma


Here are some photos of Year 1's visit to the the woodlands

Spring 2018

Harry Potter Day



We've had an excellent time celebrating Harry Potter Day!

In Year 1 we have:

  • We designed our castle for out wizards and witches to live in.
  • imagined what it would be like to be at Hogwarts.
  • Made our own magic potions
  • Watched Miss Whiteley make a gruesome potion

Thank-you to all the adults who made today possible with some amazing outfits and for your support towards the school library


Abbey House

This half term, we visited the beautiful Abbey House Musemn in Leeds. This was related to our History topic Houses and Homes. We started off learning about toys from the past then looked at different artefacts that you would find in a home from the Victorian times.

Have a look at the fun we had exploring the museum...


Autumn 2017

Languages day - September 2017


On Tuesday 26th September, Year 1 came into school in the colours of the French flag and learnt lots of different things about France and the French language.

The children learnt how to say animals and numbers in French. They also had opportunity to taste some French food including croissants and pain au chocolat. 

Here are some pictures of Year 1 in action throughout the day.

Poetry day- 05.10.17

On Thursday 5th October, Year 1 children celebrated 'Poetry day' by creating poem about Autumn leaves.

Year 1 have been learning about weather and season change so we decided to focus our poem around the season of Autumn.


Here is the children in action performing the poem


The children also investigated the different colours in Autumn leaves and then painted their own leaf by colouring mixing the primary colours.
