    Visit to All Saints’ Church

    Wednesday 6th December 2017

    Today Year 1 visited All Saints’ church and next week they will be writing a recount of their visit in their English books.

    This week in RE we are learning about Advent. Father Jeremey showed the children the Advent candles and we looked at what each candle represents. He also told us that purple is the colour of Advent and we identified several things in the church which were this colour!

    Whilst we were there we also looked at the different objects around the church and what they are used for such as the font and the altar.

    The children asked Father Jeremey lots of thoughtful questions about the different things they could see.

    Here are some pictures of Year 1 on their visit.

  • Grace Darling Year 1

    Grace Darling

    This half term we have been learning about ‘Grace Darling’ in History. We learnt about the rescue Grace Darling was involved in and why it is important to remember her.

    We also looked at what life was like for Grace Darling and thought of some questions that we could ask her.

    Daniel asked ‘How many people did you save?’

    Alariah asked ‘How hard was it to row the boat?’

    Phoebe asked ‘What was it like living in a lighthouse?’

    We tried to imagine how Grace Darling and the sailors would have been feeling during the rescue.

    Faith said ‘Grace Darling would feel scared and she was brave.’

    Isabelle said ‘The sailors would be feeling worried.’

    We enjoyed learning about Grace Darling and acted out the rescue!

    French Afternoon

    This half term we celebrated ‘National European Day’ by having a French afternoon. We looked at images of famous buildings, cities and food traditionally eaten in France. It was an exciting afternoon where we coloured in our own French flag, learnt some colours in French and ate a Pain au chocolat. That was our favourite part of the afternoon! We even started answering the register with ‘bonjour’.

  • Year 1 Computing

    Published 20/12/16, by David Foster

    In ICT, we are learning about algorithms and how to give instructions clearly. We had a go at the ‘Robot Game’ to see how well our instruction-giving skills were. In this game, one partner becomes the robot and the other partner must give a clear set of instructions about how to follow the path.

    We found it very difficult at the start as most of the robots kept on coming off their path. After a while though, we learnt how to debug our instructions and help our partner stay on the line.

    Max said “It was tricky at first because my partner couldn’t see”.

    Mollie said “When I gave the instructions at first my partner nearly bumped into the pencil. After that, I changed my instructions to keep them on the trail”.

  • Year 1 Roald Dahl Day

    Published 22/09/16, by David Foster

    Today in Year One, we were celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. Lots of us didn’t know many stories written by Roald Dahl so we had lots of fun listening to snippets from a few of them. We voted and our favourite book was ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’.

    To celebrate his birthday we did some Roald Dahl themed writing. We imagined what we would put into our medicines for George’s Grandma. After designing our medicines we then thought about what would happen to his Grandma if she drank them – some of our ideas included squeaky clean teeth, growing extra-long arms or even growing toothpaste hair! Later on, we made our very own bookmarks and coloured in our favourite Roald Dahl characters.
