Welcome children, parents and carers to our Year One class page. Please take a look at our super learning!
The children have really enjoyed reading the story 'Eliot Midnight Superhero' by Anne Cottinger as part of our English learning.
The children had lots of fun learning about the famous artist Pablo Picasso. We looked at a range of paintings and drawings by Picasso and noticed that he liked to make his artwork look a little different! He particularly liked to paint portraits of people and used a front profile and side profile of the face in one painting! We then had a go at creating our own self portraits in the style of Picasso.
Superhero Comic Fun!
The children worked really hard last week to create their own Superhero comics! They learnt that comics tell stories through pictures, speech bubbles, thought bubbles and onomatopoeia!
The children then started to plan their ideas and got to work creating their own fantastic superhero comics!
Superhero Dress Up Day!
We had lots of fun dressing up as our favourite superheroes! We spent the morning sharing our fantastic home learning challenges, making wooden superhero puppets and taking part in an exciting superhero themed PE lesson with Iron Man!
Pumpkin Pie Makers!
The children have been learning about instructions as part of our English learning this week. They followed a set of instructions carefully on Monday and made two delicious pumpkin pies…well done Year One! Their next task this week is to write a set of instructions for the Year Two children to follow… will they be able to make a pumpkin pie as delicious as ours…?
(of course not!)
Man on the Moon!
Our next topic after the holidays will be 'Man on the Moon!' We will be learning lots of interesting facts about Space and taking part in lots of fun and exciting activities! More information coming soon...

In Science we are learning about everyday materials. Today the children worked in small groups to sort a range of everyday objects by the material they are made from.
Challenge: Can you gather a selection of everyday household items and ask your child to group them by their material e.g. are they made of glass, metal, plastic, wood, cardboard, rubber, fabric, wool or another material?
A BIG well done to both the children in Year One and Year Two for their fantastic performance of 'Lights Camel Action' A BIG thank you to parents too for all your help with the costumes!
