Welcome to Year 1!
Thank you for visiting our Year 1 page. We will be sharing lots of the activities, visits and events that we have been involved in on this page. We hope you enjoy sharing our learning with us.
A Day in a Fairy Tale Castle with History Off the Page
On Monday 8th October, all of the Year One children were transported back in time to Sleeping Beauty's castle - arriving just in time to see her waking up from her long sleep.
The children experienced life in the castle by carrying out tasks and trying crafts that would have been popular at the time, including sewing leather purses, making gargoyles from clay, creating wax candles and planting beans. The storyteller created a delicious stone soup with the children and many of them helped to guard the castle and kept the inhabitants safe from giant spiders!
In the afternoon, the children took on different roles at a great banquet, becoming jesters, jousting knights, servants, dancers and singers in order to entertain some distinguished guests. Everyone enjoyed the entertainment and the delightful food on offer and we were then all captivated by the jousting tournament!
Huge thanks to the parents who helped at this event, and also thank you to everyone who sent their child in a fairy tale costume in order that they could fully join in with the spirit of the day.
Thank you also to FOT who part funded this experience - the photos below show clearly what a fantastic time everyone had, definitely a highlight to remember for Year One!
Year 1 Local Walk
On Thursday 27th September, the Year One children went for a walk around the local area to look at lots of different house types. We saw bungalows, semi-detached houses, detached houses, old houses, new houses, mansions, cottages, maisonettes and finally flats! It was a beautiful afternoon and the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They have remembered lots of the information that they found out as we have spoken about our sunny expedition in both English and Geography.
Many thanks to the parents who came with us and helped the children have a safe and memorable 'trip'.
Meet the Teacher
Many thanks to all the Parents and Carers who came to our Meet the Teacher session on Monday 17th September. For those of you that were unable to make it - please find the PowerPoint below.
Hand outs from the meeting were sent home in each child's Book Bag - including a handy leaflet containing information about all of the sounds that we will be covering in Letters and Sounds in Year One.
