Welcome to Year 1. Our classes are:

Spring term 

Spring term has seen the Year 1 children really settle into their new classes and make fantastic progress with their learning. The children have been using the school's Dell on a weekly basis to develop their learning on the natural world through first hand experiences.  They have loved climbing, identifying trees, building, working as a team and observing the plants grow and change as the seasons progress.  They even had the chance to play in the snow and build a snowman!  Their weekly Dell visits will continue into the Summer term.

In Literacy, the children read and explored the text 'The Lonely Beast'.  Using the Pie Corbett Talk for Writing strategy, the children created their own story map to retell the story.  They developed this further usin g their Mantle of the Expert understanding to create their own versions of the story.  The children used role play to act as a team of mountain rescuers and have used their drama to write in different contexts including questions, letters and posters.

In Science, the children have been developing their learning on the seasons of the year.  They are able to name and identify the features of each season and make links between months and seasons.  They also learnt how to grow a seed into a plant, the importance of water, soil and sun and the jobs of each part of a plant.  The children planted their own sunflower seeds and are watching them grow and change.
