In DT this half term we have been designing and making model rockets and plasticine aliens.  We had lots of fun using googly eyes, pipe cleaners, glue and feathers.


This half term we have been learning all about the weather and seasons. We made seasons wheels, became weather reporters and went on a tree hunt to look at the changes to leaves on local trees. We spoke about the different trees that grow in our school environment and learnt what the words 'evergreen' and 'deciduous' mean. 

We have also been learning all about our bodies and our senses. Here we are labeling each our body parts and investigating if taller people have bigger hands. 


As part of our geography sessions we have spent lots of time exploring our school and local environment. We have drawn our own maps and followed maps around school to find treasure!


Here are some photographs of us using ten frames and number lines to represent a range of numbers within 20. We have also been ordering numbers and finding 1 more and 1 less.


In Year 1 we LOVE to read!

Here are some photographs of us enjoying a range of different stories and non fiction books. 

Today year 4 came to read with us. We enjoyed sharing some of our favourite stories with them...

As part of our phonics learning we play lots of fun and exciting games to help us with our reading and writing. 

Our Curiosity Cube

We love to discover new objects in our curiosity cube. Miss Donnelly puts something inside the cube each Monday and we have the week to try and predict what it might be. We love to discover what the objects are and how they link to our learning.
