Welcome to Year 1

Year 1 Phonics

Learning Phonics is a huge part of learning in Foundation and Year 1. Please read daily to help your child learn and revise. The children will be learning new sounds through the year and the more they practise the more confident they will become.

Art in year 1

In Art we have been exploring how to mix colours to make different shades. We then created a piece of art using the different shades.

World Book Day 2022

We celebrated the joy of sharing books this year by dressing up as sharing the stories our characters were from. We then heard the story ‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’. After we used our DT skills to design and build a windmill. Take a look at our super creations we even made the sails move around.

Maths Day 2022

Our Maths day was based on the theme of ‘Maths is Everywhere’. We looked at how Maths is all around us! Year One then focused on arrays and counting in 2s. We looked at different arrays and how they help us to count a set of objects quicker. When counting in 2s we looked for the patterns is makes a number square and thought about what we noticed. After lots of counting in 2s we then looked at the arrays on LEGO (Maths is even on our toys!). Using the Lego we developed our Art skills and create some printed pictures using the LEGO and tried to make patterns or even letters.

Design Technology

In Year One we have been learning different methods of joining fabrics. We looked at the story of Little Red Riding Hood and made a puppet of the main character. We planned our ideas before we started creating with fabric.
