Year 1

A Snapshot of Activities in Year 1

Year 1 have had a very busy first half autumn term. We hope you enjoy looking at the photographs of some of the various activities that we have been doing.

We went to St.Chad’s Park on a ‘Hunt for Autumn’ and found lots of autumnal evidence. We found pine cones from evergreen trees and sycamore seeds from deciduous trees. Growing in the park were wild berries and mushrooms. We discussed the importance of not eating these as they can be toxic.

In Science we also conducted a shadow experiment and found out that when the sun is lower in the sky, our shadow is longer and when the sun is higher in the sky at mid-day, our shadow is shorter!

In English we had fun re-enacting the story of Tyrannosaurus Drip. We love our Guided Read sessions, especially when our parents come and join us.

In Maths we have been learning about 2 digit numbers and used cubes to partition into tens and ones.

In Geography we have been learning about Our Local Area and we performed a transport survey. We found out that the most popular mode of transport to school was walking and the least form of transport was by train.

In Design and Technology, we made a pictogram of our favourite vegetables and then used these to make coleslaw.

In Music we had great fun acting out the ‘Menu Song!’

We held a ballot and each child voted for their choice of Head Girl and Head Boy.
