Years 1 & 2 

Come and see what Year One have been doing recently!

Year One enjoyed watching and taking part in the 'Bling your bike or scooter' parade. Here are some of our children showing off their bikes and scooters.

This week has been quite cold at school. Although we haven't had any snow we have enjoyed exploring and playing with the ice which we found near the mud pit!

Some of the children have been enjoying den building. They have used collaboration skills to decide where to put the materials and have worked together to solve problems about their dens!

On Tuesday the children from Year One and Two went on a school trip to Woods Mill. This was the Year One's first school trip and they all had a successful and enjoyable day!

This week in Where my Wellies Take Me the children learned about the fairies and elves which used to live on our field. We found out that they need water, food, fresh air and a cosy shelter to be happy. We decided to try and coax these fairies and elves back to our school so we worked together to create some new homes. The children worked hard to listen to the ideas of other children in their group and everybody was able to share these ideas. The next morning we realised our fairies and elves probably got wet in the rain! We created an investigation to find out which material from our classroom was the most waterproof and we tested these on our fairy and elf homes. During our investigation the children realised that some of their homes were coated in a mysterious glittery dust. Proof that fairies really do exist!


Last term the children from Year One and Two came together for an Art experience day where we focused on the work of Goldsworthy and Klimt. The children below are creating their own Goldsworthy inspired art!

Year One have enjoyed their outdoor learning this term which takes place on a Tuesday afternoon. The children have been increasing their independence by changing in to their clothes and outdoor shoes quickly and making a decision about which clothes to wear. We always enjoy looking at the weather and trying to predict what will happen! We have been improving our skills of collaboration through circle games and we have been doing lots of learning about taking care of our environment. Here are some photographs of our sessions.

Year One have had a very successful first week back at school. We particularly enjoyed our outdoor learning in science where we used the book 'Leaf Man' to closely observe and discuss leaves. We learned about how the leaves begin to change in Autumn and we're looking forward to making more observations as the weeks go by! We also started to practise mindfulness outdoors and we enjoyed lying down to look at the leaves above us. Miss Oates, Miss Bowles and Mrs Blatcher are all very proud of everyone this week, what a positive start to a new school year! 

These are the topics that we are learning about in Years 1 & 2

In Year One we would like you to really focus on reading with and to your child every day.

If your child would like to stretch their brain further then they can try the spellings and maths homework below. If you complete these please bring them to school so that we can celebrate your child's home learning!
