Autumn 1

Superhero Me!


Welcome to our amazing topic!


During this term, we will be learning more about ourselves. We will learn about our families and homes, but will also look at how amazing, unique and individual we all are! Alongside this, we will learn about real life superheroes (for example, Doctors) and we will also look at some of our favourite comic superheroes too. 


Wednesday 20th October- Superhero Day! What an exciting day we had!

Tuesday 19th October- Well done Year 1 for a super Harvest service! We are so proud of our brave readers and our fantastic singers!

Monday 18th October- Adrian Bowden's Science show!

Wednesday 13th October- Today we learnt about a real life superhero, Florence Nightingale. The children loved learning about why Florence Nightingale is a superhero, and they had lots of fun completing Florence-themed choosing activities.

Monday 11th October- Science. Today we learnt about our ears and how we can hear sounds. We played a game in teams where we listened to a sound and had to decide in teams what it was.

Friday 8th October 2021- Today we went for a walk around our local area. We all did extremely well spotting different types of houses. Well done Year 1!

Friday 1st October- Today we were introduced to 'Supertato', our new class story in literacy. We took it turns to choose a question from the middle of the circle to answer. Why don't you keep an eye on our page to see our other Supertato-themed lessons?

Wednesday 29th September- We have been learning about Pablo Picasso in our Art lessons this half term. Why don't you take a look at our fabulous portraits?

Wednesday 22nd October- We were outside today in ICT learning about giving directions. We worked in partners to give each other directions by using left, right, forwards and backwards. Why don't you take a look back at our page in a few weeks to found out how we will use this knowledge in later ICT lessons?

Monday 20th September- In literacy today we did some hot seating. Miss Derbyshire pretended to be a character from "The Paper Dolls", and everyone else had to ask some questions to find out more about the character. Some of the children then had a go at pretending to be a different character. We all did a fantastic job at thinking of interesting questions to ask!

We have been having lots of fun during choosing time in Year 1. Why don't you take a look at what we have been up to in the busy areas?

Friday 10th September- In maths today we were showing quantities using different objects in the classroom. We started to understand that numbers up to 30 are made up of tens and units.

Why don't you take a look at what last years Year 1 got up to?

All Hallow's, Halloween dress up and Wear it pink day!

Have a safe and happy half term holiday Year 1! You have all worked so hard over the last few weeks and thoroughly deserve a break.
