Second week’s a charm!

Another wonderful week in Year 1. We have been busy working on our phonics wall. So far ‘ay’ and ‘ee’ have gone down a storm. Our class story, ‘Handa’s Noisy Night’ had us all howling and gave us some wonderful writing opportunities too.

First Full Week of School

What an incredible first week!

We had a wonderful time creating African landscapes… can you spot Simba? We also learnt about the different parts of the body… are there any other parts you can think of?

London Trip

What a wonderful day we had on our trip to London! The boys enjoyed pointing out all the landmarks and had great fun on the bus tour and the boat trip


Sports Day

We had a fantastic morning of running, jumping, throwing and obstacles this morning. All the boys supported their team mates brilliantly and completed to their best. A massive well done to them all.

International Day

We had a fun filled, jam packed day of activities for International Day. We found out about Russian folk art and created our own Dymkovo toy designs, we decorated Chinese New Year plates and learnt some Spanish and Indian dances. In between we found time to learn a bit about Kenya and create our own class Kenyan flag!

We are looking forward to a well deserved rest this weekend!

Minibeast Hunt

This week we went on minibeast hunt. We used magnifying glasses to search for them in the tress and under leaves.

We found lots!



This week we have been counting to 100 and making numbers using tens and ones. We used the dienes together to make the numbers and write the tens and ones on our white boards.


Over the last three weeks we have seen our caterpillars eat and grow. They then went made chrysalis’s and have been wrapped up in them for 10 days. Today the first butterflies emerged. Their wings are going to dry out and we will release them next week. We will feed them fruit and sugar water to make them strong.

Coronation Lunch

Today we had a special coronation, street party picnic! We enjoyed wearing our crowns and waving our flags.


This week the children were lucky enough to get a visit from Zoolab. They got to meet and find out about some incredible creatures.
