Science – Fruit and Vegetables

This week Year 1 have started their new science topic learning about plants. Today they were looking closely and examining some fruit and vegetables that grow on plants and trees. Magnifying glasses were used to help to really see up close the inside of the fruit and veg.

We have some great artists in Year 1. Some of the detailed paintings of the fruit were amazing.


Grteast guided reading in Y1 today. Even thought here is lots of exciting things going on at this time of year, we are making sure we still do our learning and reading is an important skill for us!

The Tiger Who Came To Tea

We have been looking at the story The tiger Who Came To To Tea our English lessons. We have been looking at the story on a story mountain and using this to help us perform the story in small groups!


In maths we have been adding numbers by putting a number in our heads and counting on. It was hard work to begin with, but we got there in the end!

WW2 Field Hospital

We had such great learning experiences today. We made a map to get to Bethesda then explored the church before moving the chairs around to make beds for hospital patients. Back in class we made a 3D model of the building and coloured a map and key to show what each room could be.

Florence Nightingale

We have been learning about Florence Nightingale this week and how she improved the hospitals when she was sent to help in the Crimean War. Some of us wrote about it, some of us looked at a photograph and talked about it adding labels, some of us made a hospital in the provision.


Year 1 have been working hard in maths this week using the symbols + and = to write and solve number sentences.

We’ve also been making our own number lines and thinking where the numbers we chose would go.


Year 1 are currently reading Funnybones by Janet & Allan Ahlberg. Today the children took up the challenge to make a skeleton in one of the areas in the classroom. The results were amazing and more importantly they practised lots of different skills.


In RE we have been learning about how Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah. We all tried potato cakes and played dreidel.

Design Technology

This week in school we did design technology linked to our history learning about the Wright brothers first aircraft flight in 1903. We all made our own moving picture using a slider mechanism. If was a bit tricky in places but everyone got a final picture they were proud of!

They were all so fabulous we couldn’t decide whose should go on the website! Ask us about them
