Wild Tribe

At the end of a wonderful first week, Year 1 have explored the wood. We found some signs of Autumn as well as a minibeasts. We found a little frog who loved to sit on a long. We have chosen our seasonal tree and will observe the changes through out the year.


2021 – 2022


Victorian Seaside

We enjoyed a day of Victorian seaside activities, including a Punch and Judy show and eating ice cream.



We have been learning about capacity in maths.

Pond Dipping

We have been learning about different types of animals, their habitats and how to care for them. We learnt how to keep safe around the pond and how to carefully study the wildlife in the school pond. We found various animals including newts, leeches and froglets.

Summer Picnic Sandwiches

We have designed, made and tasted our own healthy sandwiches. We practiced spreading butter, slicing salad and grating carrot.



Sports Day 2021




Recycled plastic art project

On World Ocean Day, Year 1 learnt that the oceans are filling up with plastic. We collected single use plastic to create a piece of art inspired by Geogina Maxwell’s reclaimed plastic art. We created a plastic ocean with plastics we collected in school and at home.





Wembury Beach Trip

Year 1 took a trip to Wembury beach to be rock pool explorers. We found many different animals, including a pipe fish, hermit crabs, beadlet anemones and cushion starfish. We enjoyed jumping the waves and navigating the seaweed.



We have been exploring plants. We identified roots, stem, flowers and leaves of different plants within our school.




We have been ordering numbers.


We enjoyed decorating Easter biscuits with Mrs O’Shea-Warman.

The Great Fire of London

As part of our Great Fire of London topic, we build our own London from 1666. We build Thomas Farriner’s bakery, St Paul’s Cathedral and The Tower of London. We found out which buildings survived and why the houses burnt so quickly.

Christmas Lunch

Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas lunch this week. Thank you to the school kitchen team for a delicious lunch.




Whilst learning bout our bodies, we measured different parts. We put the whole class in size order and then measured our hands to see who had the largest and smallest hand.





We have been investigating 3D and 2D shapes in maths. We used the 3D shapes to print 2D shapes.




We explored our sense of taste by trying different tastes. We tried sweet, salty, sour and bitter to find out which we liked and which we didn’t like. We also found out that if we held our nose, so we couldn’t smell, the food tasted differently. Some of us tried food we’ve never tried before.



Remembrance Day 

Year 1 have been making some beautiful poppies which have been put together to create a field of poppies display.




Autumnal Art

As part of our science topic about the seasons, we used the leaves and acorns we found in school to create autumnal art.



This term we have be learning about toys from the past. We explored old toys and played games from the past. Some of the games we already knew, like Snake and Ladders and some games we had to learn how to play, such as Tiddlywinks.


Design and Technology 

The biggest Billy Goat Gruff asked us to design, build and test a bridge strong enough for all three Billy goats as their old one broke. We designed our own bridges, built them then tested how well they worked. Once we did that, we talked about how we might change our bridge if we built it again. We worked well in pairs to make sure our bridges worked.



Conker competition 




We have been learning how to move using the gym equipment.



We have been learning about the different seasons and the weather associated with it. We acted out the different weather types for each season and packed a suitable bag of clothing for a holiday in each season.




We have been practicing counting forwards and backwards by using number tracks and dice.



Independent Learning Challenges 

Year 1 have been completing independent challenges since returning back in school. This week we created special buildings linked to the learning in RE.
