Environmental Activities

Year 1 had a lovely time exploring Coldfall Woods. They took some tree rubbings, looked for insects and then played in the woods together.

Special Meals

We started our RE topic by talking about special meals we have shared with others. The children showed their creative side by making their special meals and writing about them.

Egg Box Dragon

We have started to read 'The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon'. One of the highlights this week was when we made our own egg box dragons and shared them with each other online . Tonight we are going to put our dragons to sleep under the moon and watch what happens!

Decorating Christmas biscuits

Year 1 had so much fun today decorating Christmas biscuits that chef had made. The children waited patiently for the icing bag and shared the chocolate drops and sprinkles. They had even more fun eating them at the end!

Y1 Display

Year 1 have created this lovely display based on the book Look Up by Nathan Bryon. The children created their own meteor pictures on the computer and wrote facts about them. They then did some research into
Mae Jemison, the first African American woman in space. Take a look at their amazing work. 


Year One have been thinking about the meaning of Advent. The children decorated their own Christmas bauble and wrote about Advent. They discussed how we can help others by donating items to the Reverse Advent Calendar. One child said "It's about giving and not taking".

We also made our own class Advent wreath. 

National Cookie Day

To celebrate National Cookie day this week Year 1 ate cookies while watching a story called 'Mmm, cookies'. Thank you to chef and her team for baking them for us all to enjoy.

Lola visit

Year 1 were very lucky to have a special visit from Mrs Ronan and our school dog Lola. The children asked Mrs Ronan lots questions about how she cares for Lola and found out the food Lola likes to eat and the things she likes to do. Thank you Mrs Ronan and Lola.

Catherine West Zoom call

Year 1 were very lucky when Catherine West our local MP joined us on zoom. She answered questions about how she became an MP & what her job entails. She also showed us a very special tile from the Houses of Parliament. Thank you so much Catherine for a very informative session.
