Planting bulbs

The boys had fun planting daffodil and tulip bulbs on the Pre-Prep patio. It should make a lovely Spring display.


The boys have been working hard on the Lochinver handwriting script.

African art

The boys really enjoyed creating these stunning African animal sunset pictures, as an introduction to our topic on Africa.

Science – Ourselves

Today the boys started our new Science topic of Ourselves.

They enjoyed drawing around each other and labelling different body parts.

Welcome to Year 1!

A warm welcome to our new class. We are delighted to welcome you to 1TD and are looking forward to an exciting year ahead!


Welly Time 2


The second half of 1TD enjoyed Welly Time today.

Meeeting a tree, doing a bark rubbing and working out how to find the circumference of their tree.

Ashridge Estate

What a wonderful day we enjoyed at Ashridge Estate!

The boys started with a woodland walk and hunted for mini beasts.

We then looked for different flowers in the meadow.

After lunch we built dens and made a fabulous piece of natural artwork.

A fabulous day!

Welly Time!

In Welly Time today the boys were meeting a tree!

They worked in partners, one of them blindfolded to be guided to a tree. They used different senses such as touch and smell to try and identify the tree.


The boys found a way to measure the circumference of the tree using string, and made a bark rubbing and drew a picture of their tree.

Alfie’s challenge


Alfie’s challenge this week was to make a London landmark out of lego or blocks. Can you guess which landmark the boys have built?

Welly Time

Welly Time is starting for the boys in 1TD next week. Please ensure your son has his wellies in school for Wednesday.

Thank you
