Welcome to the class page for Year 1

Our PE day is Friday, please send the children in to school in their PE kit and trainers.

Please send your child's reading record and book in with them each day as we would also like to read with them at school.

Reading books will be changed on Tuesday and Thursday.




Art - Landmark Sculptures: This week we have been building sculptures of famous landmarks from around the world.

Computing - This week we have started our computing topic for this term of Coding. We made our own codes on paper first and then on the computer.

Science Week


In Science week we have been learning about weather and seasonal changes. We measured the weather each day of the week gathering data about the weather, temperature, wind direction and rainfall. We then put our data into a graph.


We also carried out a forensic science investigation into who stole our Easter chocolates. We tested blood, carried out ink chromatography, fingerprint and footprint analysis, looked at GPS information and also analysed fur and hair under a microscope.


Lastly we used various materials to build the tallest tower we could.
