Year 1 Blog

Welcome to the year one blog page, which will be updated regularly so that you can keep updated with what's been happening school side

Year 1 will be learning about British birds. Why don't you go out and see if you can see any birds? You can use this handy website to identify them, and then come and tell us all about what you have spotted!

Click the above link to see all of the sounds that your child has been taught at school. Please practise recognising them at home - you could watch the video once with sound, and then again on mute, adding the right sounds yourself! 

The children have recently received new logins for Mathletics! Click the following link to log in. Certificates for hard working mathletes will be given out in Friday assembly. 


Year 1 have been making planets out of paper mache. They worked in groups of 3, making their balloons the right scaled size for their assigned planets. Watch out for the finished articles! (We are painting them this afternoon!)


Year 1 have been learning to tell the time!
