Spring 1- Poles Apart

This half term our topic has been North Pole and South Pole. We have been learning about the weather, seasons and animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctica.


In English we have been learning to write non-chronological reports. We started off by reading a report on polar bears and then created our own based on our favourite polar animals like huskies and penguins. You can come and see our work on display around school!


Peter the Artist

Peter Swidrak came in to work with Year 1. We had a look at different paintings and then based our work on one of Peter's drawings called "Blue Moon Sunset". We cut out shapes and then put them together to create an Arctic picture.

Autumn 2- Superheroes


Father Christmas

Father Christmas came to visit our school and bought us a bag of presents. We had lots of fun singing him Christmas songs!

Our topic this half term has been 'People who help us'. Today we went to visit a fire station. We met lots of brave fire fighters .They showed us a fire engine and we had the chance to sit inside it.  They also showed us the tools that they use to help them do their jobs. We even had a go at using a hose pipe. Have a look at our photos from the trip.


12.10.17                                                                                                                                                Art Day

We had 'Art Day' in Year 1. We looked at the work of a famous painter called Iris Scott. She lives in America and she is famous for painting with her fingers. We decided to create some Autumn paintings using our fingers. It was so much fun! Have a look at us on Art day. Our work will be going up on display. Keep a look out for it.

To celebrate Roald Dahl Day we dressed up as our favourite Roald Dahl character. What characters can you spot in our photo? Who is your favourite Roald Dahl character?
