In Year One we've been enjoying learning to count in two's, five's and ten's. 

We are also learning this dance routine: in PE and hope to be worthy of a Golden Buzzer by the end of this half-term!

In English,  we have been writing our own journey stories   inspired by Handa's Surprise.



Hello Hawks and Harriers it has been so nice to have you all back in school! It has been so lovely to see all of you, we missed you.

We want to say a big thank you to everyone for your fantastic participation in the home learning on Seesaw. It was so nice for us to see your learning and be able to support you with it at home. Since returning to school we can see how hard worked and  we want to recognise your great attitude towards your learning. 


This week we have been settling back into school life. We want to celebrate how well year 1 children have adapted to being back in school. We have noticed how kind and helpful they have been to each other both during break times and learning time. We have asked the children what they have enjoyed about being back at school so far this is what they have told us "seeing my friends", "I like this math's, it is fun", "Australia looks amazing!".


Moving on to look at the weeks ahead. We are going to be looking at;

Diary writing in English. 

Continuing to learn new sounds and practice our common exception words in phonics. 

Numbers to 50 and addition and subtraction in math's.

The continents of the world in geography.  

Clay in art, we are making dragon eyes. 

Animals including humans in science. 

The Easter story in RE. 

Going for goals in PSHE. 

Moving and handling in PE. 


A more comprehensive version is attached below. We will also be sending out what we will be doing the following week on seesaw with the home learning task. We will be assigning home learning on Seesaw each Friday ready to be handed in on Wednesday the following week. 

Week ending 5th February 2021

In art we have been looking at architecture. Year 1’s have designed their own castles after being given only the door as a starting point.

This week we have been looking at non-chronological reports. Year 1’s have been gathering information on dragons.

In both Year 1 classes, we had a Planking competition last week.  These were our results:

Miss Jarvis 1min26sec


Mr Mawdsley, our Head of PE, can allegedly hold a plank for more than 10 minutes but as nobody has been able to verify these claims we decided not to include him in our leaderboard.

Week ending 22nd January 2021

Both Year 1 classes have been looking at architecture in Art.


Week ending 15th January 2021

Our new Science topic in Y1 is Plants.  We all went for a walk to look for different types of leaves, some of the photographs in this image were taken by children at home and some are from our walks at school.  We also talked about names of plants that we already know.  The children at school wrote the plants they already knew (in red and green) and now we have added the names of plants that the children at home thought of.  We will keep collaborating this term and try to learn about as many new native plants as we can!

5/1/21 in response to Boris Johnson's announcement last night we are closed to most children today. Please look on Seesaw to see work set for your children today. Don't forget that you have reading eggs logins and math's packs with games for you to play at home with you already. 

Please watch us performing the song Rudolph the red nose reindeer. We learnt new Christmas songs because we have been unable to do our usual nativity play. We hope you enjoy, happy holidays and we wish you all a happy new year

Please see below the parent overview for this half-term. It outlines the areas we will be covering in school and what you can do to support your child at home.
