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.

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

Road safety

Road safety training.
We had a great afternoon on Thursday learning about road safety in year 1.  We learnt the 4 important rules:
1-stop. 2- look. 3-listen. 4-think.
Then we put this into practise when we crossed roads around our school.  Back in the classroom we talked about safe places to cross and looked at different types of crossing. At the end of the day we all got a certificate to say we a experts at crossing the road!

Year 1 had a fantastic day at the Visitor Runway Park at Manchester Airport on Monday. We learnt all about the different jobs that people do at the airport and took the controls on the flight deck to take off and land an aeroplane on imaginary journeys.

We saw the fastest aeroplane in the world, Concorde, but just missed seeing the biggest aeroplane in the world as it landed 15 minutes early!

A new baby!

We have been learning about the chronology of the royal family and have been excited to hear the news about the new royal baby. We made our own maps to send to the Queen so she can find her way to meet her new great grandson.
