Year 1 in action…

Year 1P

We created a block graph for Year 1C’s favourite crisps. Our block graph has a title, two axes, labels, and a scale. We took it in turns to add our crisp flavour to the graph.

Year 1C enjoy reading for pleasure! πŸ“šπŸ“š

In science we have been discussing the similarities and differences in the appearance of flowering plants. Take a look at the different ways we sorted them. πŸ”ŽπŸŒ»πŸŒ·1C


Art in 1C, inspired by Pablo Picasso 🀩

1C spent the afternoon looking at a variety of garden plants that Mrs Lomas kindly brought in for us. We observed the different parts of the plants closely using magnifying glasses and drew one of the plants. We definitely have some budding artists in Y1!

Y1 enjoyed selecting their 5 books at the book fair this morning, organised by the Wood Street Mission. We hope you enjoy reading your new books! πŸ“–πŸ›

Y1C had a fantastic day at Clitheroe Castle! 🏀 The sun shone for us too- bonus! 🌞

Happy Easter 🐣

Well done to all those children that achieved 100% attendance this half term! πŸ«πŸ†

Take a look at 1P’s playground structures!

Y1 are scientists! We carried out an investigation to see which material is best to keep our hands dry. Can you tell your grown-ups which materials absorb water and which materials are waterproof? πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§

Take a look at 1C's super structures! 🀩

This week in science we have been exploring 'waterproof' and 'absorbent' materials. Great work Y1!

Can you tell your grown-ups which materials were waterproof and which were absorbent?

Check out our throwing and catching skills in Games this week...

We have been recognising coins and their values in maths.

In science we have enjoyed exploring materials and their properties. We worked together to name the materials from the given clues. Great work Y1! πŸ‘

Happy Mother’s Day to all our lovely Mums πŸ’• We hope you love your personalised cards that we made for you! Relax, take time for yourself and enjoy your special day πŸ’•

This half term, reading tokens have been given to children who are good reading role models. These children might ask good questions, get stuck into reading for pleasure, or be a good reading ambassador in their class. The tokens were placed into a raffle and drawn in assembly. Well done to our winners! We hope you enjoy them at home.

Well done to those children that received their golden pencil today!

During PSHE, we discussed why taking care of our dental health is important and how we take care of our teeth. In pairs, we sequenced instructions of how to brush our teeth properly and with care.

πŸ“šWorld Book Day. Y1 enjoyed being illustrators, designing book covers for our whole school stories!✏️🌟

Y1C enjoyed their Materials Hunt this afternoon. They used some super scientific words to describe the different materials they spotted. Great work! πŸ‘

In maths Y1 have been learning about subtraction. First we used straws and drew pictures of straws to help us solve our calculations. Then we moved onto the 'First, Then, Now' problems below. Some of us even had a go at drawing our own subtraction problems. Great work Year 1!

Well done to our most recent Traffic Light Treat winners for reading 5+ times at home each week! πŸ“–πŸ› 🀩 πŸ‘

Well done 1C for reclaiming the attendance trophy, with an amazing 98% attendance last week! Hope you enjoyed your chocolate πŸ˜‹

Y1 enjoyed a well-deserved fun day to celebrate our school's OUTSTANDING Ofsted grading! πŸ₯³πŸ€©

We have been using scientific words to describe different objects. We learnt new words, such as 'opaque', 'transparent' and 'rigid'. Can you tell your grown-ups what these words mean?

We have been identifying and describing the physical properties of a selection of materials. Let’s play a game...

We recognised that the same type object can be made using different materials...

In art, we have been studying Wassily Kandinsky. We have studied his art work, had a go at creating different tones by adding black or white to a colour, recognised the three primary colours, mixed two of them together to create a secondary colour and looked at Kandinsky’s style when painting! Today we started to create our final piece in the style of Wassily Kandinsky.
