Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Forest School - We love learning outside!

Maths is Magic - Look at how super our number skills are!

Reindeer Art - We are all unique!

Predicting and Measuring - We tested to see if our ideas about the weakest bridges were correct.

Making toys - We enjoyed trying out different wheels and axels.

Waterproof or not? We had such fun trying to keep the toys protected from the rain.

Firework Pictures - Let's convey the magic and movement of this celebration!

Testing the strength of materials - Strong enough to stop the Big Bad Wolf?

Busy jobs - We all learn in different ways.

Autumn Term 2021

This term our topic is Toys (in my lifetime and changes beyond living memory).

We will be exploring our own toys, the materials they are made from and significant changes related to toys and materials in the past.

Why not ask your child to describe...

  • Which materials they know the names of and what where they can see these materials.
  • How peoples lives and needs change as they grow from babies to adults.
  • The different ways we could make puppets.
  • The stories they know that have toys as the main characters.
  • How they have been exploring the strength and other properties of materials.
  • The inventions they know that have changed our lives.
