What have Year 1 been up to?

Year 1 have been enjoying the beautiful sunshine during their PE lessons. We have been making the most of the wonderful weather and have been keeping fit outside.

In geography, we looked at our world and how it is split into different continents and oceans. We also looked at the United Kingdom and how it is made up of four different countries. We even looked at the capital cities in each of the countries!

Year 1 loved celebrating World Book Day! It was so much fun to see all of our friends and teachers dressed as characters from books. We spent the day doing lots of fun activities; we even got a visit from Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story!

In RE, Year 1 have been learning all about Jesus’ miracles. We focused on how Jesus turned water into wine and we made our very own water jugs! We have loved learning all about Jesus and his miracles.

Look at our wonderful artwork! Year 1 have been creating landscapes using different media.

Year 1 have been looking at how to use a ruler to measure the length of different objects. We even measured our shoes! It was so much fun learning all about length.

In our RE lessons this week, we have been looking at what makes Jesus a good friend. We talked about what we like about our friends and how we are good friends to others. We thought about what we wanted in a friend; we had ideas such as kind, brave, helpful and generous.

We have been looking at great explorers throughout history and, to start our new topic, we became explorers! We explored our outdoor environment and found lots of treasure! It was so much fun being an explorer and we can’t wait to continue with our history work on explorers.

Keeping safe online

Due to the current situation, children will be spending more time online to learn, to play or to keep in touch with friends or family. We want to keep them as safe as possible.
