Year One

Our key worker children enjoyed creating our ‘keep smiling’ sunshine. We hope it brings a smile to the parents who are doing such a wonderful job.

We had great fun during world book day. We watched video clips about different children’s authors. Everybody took part in a book swap and got a new book. We enjoyed reading our new books and creating are own bookmarks to use at home.

Year 1 went to the Beatles museum as part of our History topic. We had great fun trying on outfits from the 1960’s, looking around the exhibition and playing on the interactive piano.

In Art we have been studying African art. We created our own African masks by drawing and cutting out our designs. We painted our masks using African patterns. It was great fun.

We went on a winter walk around our school. We looked for signs that winter is here. We know that during winter there are no leaves on the trees and the flowers are asleep.

In Science we sorted toys into different material groups. We thought about what each material felt like and used words to describe it.

We had great fun at our Christmas party

with a special visit from Father Christmas.

We had a great day at Derby Park today! We had to dig a hole and then plant daffodil bulbs. We planted over 450 bulbs.

We can’t wait to visit Derby park again in spring to see them all grown.


We had great fun sharing our toys with each other.

We discussed why they are our favourite toys and described them.

We had great fun creating are own paper collage.

We used different types of paper and learned how to overlay them.

We enjoyed looking at and observing plants grow. We went to the eco-garden to look at common plants. We can name and describe parts of a plant.

We enjoyed creating our own finger puppets.

We used lots of different equipment to create them.

Year One completed lots of activities on our Mission Day. We thought about our home family, our school family and our church family.We enjoyed painting, writing and showing the rest of the school what we had learned.

Meet the new Year One.
