This week in maths we are learning all about position and direction. We will be learning about clockwise and anti-clockwise, we will be learning about 1/2 1/4 and 3/4 turns and will have the chance to program robots! Today we started outside, using our direction steering wheels to help us! 

Follow this link below to watch our weather reports, we wrote these reports in our table groups in science.

This week we have started our new English topic and we are looking at the book The Gingerbread Man. We used all of our senses today to describe the gingerbread man. We enjoyed this lesson, especially when we got to eat the gingerbread man!

Fun in Phonics

In Year One we have been trying to find new ways to help us learn all of our phonic sounds. We do phonics every day in small groups and this week we have been using the aqua beads and letters to help us spell and apply our sounds! The children loved getting to play with the water beads and spelt a variety of common exception words.

This week we came to the end of our art topic. This half term we have learned how to weave, we learned about the warp and weft and practised with paper. Today we got to put it all into practise when we made a new dress for Cinderella to wear to the ball. The children picked their own materials and put their weaving skills in effect. The results are beautiful and each Cinderella is well and truly ready for the ball!

Barnaby Bear

The children have been working very hard in music to learn the songs ready for the big sing. Here is a short video of our day at The Anvil. Everyone enjoyed singing along with Barnaby and hearing his story about a pirate and his missing treasure.
We took our own bears, who also enjoyed the trip!

Crime Scene Do Not Cross

This half term we have started a new topic, Fantastic Fairytales. We have looked at traditional tales and alternative versions. 


When we arrived at school last week, the outdoor area had been changed into a crime scene. There was lots for us to look at and different clues for us to examine! The police came in to question us to help find the criminal! 

Sprout Boy by Year One

When these children tried sprouts they liked them and chose to write their poem as "everyone likes a sprout"

This week the children finished their Sprout Boy poems. Here some Year One children have shared their ideas to create their own Christmas video inspired by Sprout Boy. The children have worked very hard on these poems and they have been very successful.

Panto Day

A little vlog of our day at the panto, watching Snow White!

Sprout Boy meets a galaxy of stars

In English, in the lead up to Christmas, we have used the video “Sprout Boy” to inspire our writing. We have watched the video and have been considering the vocabulary choices and learning about rhyme.

We have also had the chance to taste sprouts, to decide whether our poem will be about loving sprouts or hating them! The children were brilliant and nearly all of them tried a sprout, many of them were surprised when they liked them! Many of them went back for SECONDS!

Fire Service

On Tuesday 11th December we were lucky enough to have the fire service come to visit us, we spent the morning in class with them playing games and learning about how to keep ourselves safe. After break we had the chance to visit the fire engine and have a go at putting out a fire! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and particularly enjoyed spraying Miss Bridgman!

Marwell Zoo

On the 15th of October we went on a class trip to Marwell Zoo as part of our Amazing Animals topic. While we were there we were looking at Fur, Feathers and Scales. We used what we had learned in science to classify these animals into mammals, birds and reptiles. The animals were clearly not perturbed by the rain and we saw lots of different animals whilst walking around the zoo.

When we got back to class, the children wrote postcards home about our day at the zoo and enjoyed looking through the photos we all took.

Snail and the Whale

Snail and the Whale 1
Snail and the Whale 2

On Monday the 8 October a beach washed up on the shores of Year One’s outdoor area! Miss Bridgman was the first to notice the strange scene and asked the children to take a closer look. Upon inspection James spotted that a glass bottle had washed up onto the beach, inside the bottle was a message from a tiny snail who had taken a trip on the tail of a whale.


The children were eager to begin learning all about the snails adventures. More information about the snail and the whale will be posted here so check back soon!

Year One 2018/2019

Year One 2018/2019 1

Year One builds upon the children’s experiences from Year R.  The classroom is still mobile but activities are often teacher-led and involve the children in working with an adult or independently.  Learning friends help children to recognise the kind of learner that they are.


In the mornings, the children have a literacy or maths lesson and then phonics before lunch. In the afternoon the focus changes to topic and science work. The children also have an indoor and outdoor P.E lesson, music, R.E and ICT skills lessons.  Our topic this half term is Amazing Animals, which is a science and geography topic.


In Year One we want the children to be happy and enjoy their learning.  We encourage the children to be polite, reflective, to behave well, and to support and respect each other. Children are also rewarded with team points and certificates. On Friday afternoons, they have Golden Time which is a time when they can play. As a class they are collecting marbles in a pot, once they have collected all of the marbles they will have a class reward, which the children will choose.


The children’s learning is reinforced through homework.  The children practise spellings, during the week, and complete a maths, literacy or topic based piece of weekend homework. In addition, they take home reading books which they choose themselves.


During this term children will visit Marwell Zoo.  Next half term they will take part in the Christmas play alongside Year 2.


This page will be updated with pictures of what we get up to in class; so please check back for more information!
