Welcome to Year 1 with Miss Power and Mrs Norris!
Here you will find information about Year 1 as well as updates from events that take place in this year group. We hope you enjoy looking at all of the exciting learning that takes place in Year 1!
Spring Term 2019
Our topic for the Spring Term is "What can we learn from people and toys in the past?" After reading "Lost in the Toy Museum" we will be transported back in time with a visit from Freshwater's magical toy museum! We will be setting up our very own toy museum in the classroom and will have the opportunity to discuss toys old and new! After this first hand experience we will travel through the decades and explore how toys have changed over time. The incredible adventures of "Traction Man" will inspire us to create our very own stories as well as providing links with our science, history and design and technology curriculum.
Look what we have been up to in the spring term!
We had an exciting visit from Zoe and her Magical Toy Museum! We explored toys from the past and looked at how they are different to the toys we play with today! We spoke about the materials used and functions of the toys. We really enjoyed observing toys closely and are excited to use this experience in our English, discovery and design technology lessons!

As a part of their homework the children asked their family if they had any old toys! We have had lots of fun talking about these toys and how they are different to the ones that we play with today.
Autumn Term 2018
Our topic for the Autumn Term is "Where in the World is Barnaby Bear?" We will be travelling the world with Emma Jane on her aeroplane and discovering the new countries that Sunny the meerkat visits. These carefully selected stories link perfectly with our first topic and have inspired a curriculum which values and incorporates all subject areas, encouraging engagement and inspiring young minds.
Look what we have been up to in the autumn term!
This term we visited All Things Wild! We were extremely excited to see animals from around the world. From zebras to camels, all of these animals were amazing creatures to observe! We can't wait to learn more about these animals in our science topic next half term!
CAFOD Family Fast Day Appeal - October 2018
Year 1 have been learning all about the harvest festival and the ways in which people celebrate. We have thought carefully about how lucky we are to have such a variety of food and decided to take part in CAFOD's Family Fast Day Appeal. We made a delicious harvest soup and invited our family into school to raise money for CAFOD. Well done Year 1, we are very proud of you.
