Welcome to Year 1's page!
Year 1 are exploring different areas of the Curriculum in a variety of ways. This page will keep you updated with our learning and invite you to explore our galleries to see what we have been up to.
Our topic this Summer term is 'Seasonal Changes' as we move from the cold Winter to the sun and showers of Spring, we will be observing how weather and sunlight hours are affected.
Follow us as we continue our learning journey,
The Queen's Knickers
In Year 1 our D.T. work in the Spring Term was designing and making our own knickers for the Queen. We selected some suitable material, cut out two pieces from templates, sewed them together using some wool as thread and decorated.
ICT Scratch Junior
Year 1 have been working with the Scratch Junior programme in the Summer Term. We have been working on our directional language of right, left, forwards, backwards, turning right and turning left to create algorithms to enable a sprite to move within the programme.
Fire Safety Talk
Year 1 had a Fire Safety Talk about the history of fire fighters, how to be safe around fire and precautions to take.
Our Trip to the Victorian Museum
Year 1 went to the Braintree District Museum in the Summer Term to see what life was like for children in the Victorian times. We were taught some English, Maths and Geography by a strict teacher who gave us slates to write on and wooden desks to sit at. We handled some artefacts over 100 years old and found out what they were used for, before exploring different galleries around the Museum. I was very exciting and very different to how we are taught today!
