Welcome to Year 1


Working in Year 1 this year: Miss Shields, Mrs Greenwood, Mrs Donlan and Miss Timewell. 




In english we are focusing on writing a sentence using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We will also be reading lots of different stories.


Christmas with the Aliens

Well done to all Keys stage 1 children who took part in out production of 'Christmas with the Aliens.' The children were fantastic in all performances, making themselves and all the staff very proud. They sang, danced and acted brilliantly. 



In science this half term we will be continuing to observe the changes in the seasons, specifically winter. 

Roald Dahl Day

We enjoyed learning about Roald Dahl. We liked looking at various stories over a number of days; we really loved his books. We also enjoyed dressing up as his characters such as Willy Wonka, George and Matilda.



Autumn 2

 This half term our topic is ‘Toys!’ We will be looking at old toys and identifying the differences between then and now. In Science and Geography we will be continuing to look at the weather and seasons. In DT this half term, we will be making our own toys out of different materials. 


Spring 1

This half term our geography topic is 'Polar bears and Penguins' Children will find out about very cold regions in the extreme north and south of the planet and develop their awareness of similarities and differences. We also look at the people who may live in these places and how they survive.

Welcome back 2018-2019

Our first topic this year is 'Wonderful Weather'  We will be exploring the changes in weather and seasons specifically autumn and how it affects us and the world around us. We are hoping to spend lots of time exploring the woodland area in and around school to investigate the many different plants and animals that we may see.

We will also be exploring art that uses natural resources found in the woodland and different artists.



Our PE days will continue to be on Thursdays. Please ensure your child has a named PE kit. This makes it much easier to locate items if they get misplaced.



This half term in art, we will be exploring lots of different artist and their art work through colour. We will be learning how to mix colours as well as learning our primary and secondary colours. We have already enjoyed looking at the work of Piet Mondrian and Mark Rothko.
