Year 1

Year 1 2018-2019

The children have had their first couples of weeks in year 1 and they have settled in wonderfully. I am very proud of how they have coped with all of the changes from reception! Our first theme this school year is 'Coventry!'. Please see the autumn term curriculum map for more information on what the children will be learning about. 

Year 1 2017-2018

Spring Term in Year 1

Please see our Spring Term curriculum map below.

World Book Day

Everybody looked amazing on world book day! Thank you for putting in so much effort with your costumes. We had a wonderful day filled with activities about the Gruffalo. Take a look at our gallery to see some pictures from our day! 


This half term in science we have been learning all about our bodies. We have been thinking about our senses a lot and this week we were learning about taste. We tried different fruits and thought about how we could describe the taste of them. Take a look at our pictures!

WOW Event - Bread Making 

This week we became bakers! Tesco Bakery came into our school to teach us how to make bread. We found out what ingredients are used, we tasted different kinds of bread and even rolled out our own hot dog rolls! All of the children were superstars! Take a look at the pictures smiley

Art in Year 1

This half term we are learning all about self portraits in art. We bought objects into school that are very special to us and thought about how they represent who we are. Take a look at our photos!
