We have been learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables in class and we have particularly enjoyed using singing and dancing to help us remember them. Click on the link below and let the children show you the songs they have been learning.
The children have worked very hard this half term and they have been earning lots of dojo points along the way too!
We have particularly enjoyed learning all about animals from different climates. Our trip to Blackpool Zoo was very enjoyable and when we were in the zoo classroom, the children happily showed off everything they had learnt so far. Well done Year 1!

Year One were absolutely amazing in their family worship and the teachers are very proud of them. Below you will find some photographs from the day.
The 'Toy Museum' was a great success and the children made us very proud indeed! Thank you to everybody that managed to come along to see the children showcase their learning. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did!
We had a very busy first half term in Year One. Take a look at some of our learning.
Golden time proved a great success. The children thoroughly enjoyed watching a movie whilst wearing their pyjamas and cuddling their teddies! We are already looking forward to our next golden time session at the end of term.
We really enjoyed looking at the old steam engines and racing them with Rosie's grandad!
We had some of our grown-ups in school to talk about and show us some old toys.
The children have settled in to Year 1 very well. They spent the first week familiarizing themselves with the classroom and class routines and rules. They are now ready and prepared to be challenged with their learning! Click on the link below to see what we will be learning this half term.
Year 1 met their Year 5 buddies last week and they spent some time getting to know them in our classroom. The children really enjoyed showing their buddies around the different areas and the Year 5 children were eagerly reading, building, making, exploring and playing with the Year 1's.
Meeting our Year 5 buddies.
We are now in the final half term of Year One and it is going to be a very busy one! Check out the new learning we have planned by clicking on the link below.
Today, Year 1 have had a morning that was 'out of this world.'The Skybolt Rocket arrived in the school playground whilst we were in assembly and then the fun began. We started by looking at some space artefacts, space food, rocket fuel, meteorites, parts of a rocket and a real life Russian space suit! Then we made our own rockets and launched them in the playground. Some of our rockets blasted off higher than the trees and houses. Finally, we explored the Skybolt Rocket and found out lots of exciting facts. Take a look at our slideshow.
The children had a bit of a shock when they returned to school on Tuesday. We appeared to have had a crash landing from outer space! What a great start to our 'Out of this world' topic.

'Around The World With Year 1' was a great success and the children very confidently shared their learning with parents and grandparents. All of the children could talk about their animal designs and how they made them. They could also show where in the world their animals come from. I am sure you would agree, the African dancing was a super finale. Thank you to everybody that came today, we hope you enjoyed it.
Year 1 really enjoying taking part in 'Experience Easter'. We moved around the different stations in school and at church with our Year 5 buddies, listening to the Easter story.
We had lots of fun during science week. On Friday some scientists visited school to spend the morning with Key Stage 1, giving us the opportunity to take part in lots of exciting science activities. We also carried out some interesting experiments of our own in the classroom.
We had a very exciting start to the half term as we had some special visitors. Nine chicken eggs were delivered to school in an incubator and we watched them carefully until seven of them eventually hatched. Once they were dry and fluffy they were transferred from the incubator in to the brooder box. After the chicks got used to the brooder box the children were able to hold them. We thought it would be a good idea to name them after the seven dwarfs; Doc, Sleepy, Grumpy, Sneezy, Happy, Dopey and Bashful. We were all very sad to say goodbye to the chicks when it was time for them to return to the farm.
Happy New Year. I hope you have had a relaxing Christmas break and are ready for the term ahead. We have lots of exciting new learning planned, click on the link below to see what we will be learning.
On Wednesday 8th February Year 1 had a fitness and nutrition workshop in which we learnt about some of the foods that were good for us and those that were not so good. We found out that we should only have the equivalent of 5 lumps of sugar per day! We really enjoyed learning about different food types and lots of new words such as 'carbohydrates' and 'protein.'
Year 1 had an amazing day at Blackpool Zoo and we didn't want it to end. The sun was shining and the animals were up to lots of mischief! It was such a busy but fun day and many of us couldn't resist having a nap on the way back to school.
As part of our new topic we have been discussing the weather and the difference between hot and cold climates. The children really enjoyed moving around stations in the classroom, looking at photographs of different types of weather, reading poems and stories and trying on a variety of accessories for different weather conditions. They could all feedback what they had learnt, with confidence.
We have been looking at structures made from snow and ice such as igloos and ice castles and we have enjoyed designing our own ice buildings using a variety of materials.

Year 1's family worship was a joy to watch as I am sure everybody who saw it would agree. We are very proud of the children, they showed great confidence in their reading and performing, well done everybody! Take a look at the photographs below.
We had a great time at the multi-skills festival organised by Flixton Girls School on Wednesday.
Well what a busy first half term we have had in Year 1. The children have settled in to class routines well and have really enjoyed their learning so far. Take a look at some of the exciting things we have been up to.
The toy museum was a great success and the children really enjoyed showcasing their own work. They were also keen to tell parents all about the many different toys on display in the museum. We hope you had fun too!
In our P.E. lessons we have created movements as different toys. We have also choreographed our own routines with partners and small groups.
We enjoyed having some special visitors in class to share their knowledge of toys, old and new. We were able to hold some of these toys and we asked lots of questions about them.
We were visited by Mrs Summerfield who played her different woodwind instruments for us. We also enjoyed playing some instruments ourselves whilst retelling 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt.'
We have had a great start to this half term and we are settling in well to all the new routines. Below are some photographs of us learning in the areas of provision around the classroom.
