Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.


We have had a great start to the year in our class. Everyone enjoyed our trip to Legoland and the whole class was wonderful in the KS1 Nativity play. All the children looked lovely in their costumes and sang beautifully.

We are learning all about Africa this term. We read 'Handa's Surprise' and had a fruit-tasting day where we tried all the eight different fruits in the book. In Art we have made beautiful African scenes showing giraffes silhouetted against an African sunset. We have also been learning African songs with Mr Lee in our music lessons on Friday.

Look at some of the wonderful homework the children have been doing this term.

In class, we have been reading the story Oliver's Vegetables about a boy who tries lots of different vegetables when he goes to stay with his grandad. We have been trying all the vegetables, too. We have tried carrots, spinach, rhubarb, cabbage, beetroot, peas and potatoes.

Recently, we had a visit from the TenTen theatre company who put on a play for us called Freedom Fighters. Everyone really enjoyed it because it was very funny but we also learned that rules can be good for us.
