Year 1

 Welcome to Classes 3 and 4


Trip to Blaise Castle Museum

As part of our ‘old toys’ history topic we went to Blaise Castle to explore the old toys in the museum.

We also took part in a workshop where we sorted old toys from new toys, dressed up as old fashioned children and played with all kinds of old toys.

We saw a dolls house, a wooden rocking horse, a wooden aeroplane, a puppet show, a train set and we made our own spinners!

Juliette enjoyed the different activities in the workshop.

Claudie liked dressing up as an old fashioned child.

Lola liked the big dolls house.

Danny liked dressing up in the old role play clothes.

Ellie liked looking at all the old models.

Term 5 – Judaism

We have been learning about Shabbat and exploring the Jewish faith. We tasted grape juice and Challah (special bread that has been blessed).

We explored different artefacts like the Torah (the Jewish holy book) and the candles that symbolise the beginning of Shabbat.

Term 4

Class 3 have been working with Mrs Steel (Class 8 teacher) to learn how to perform Choral Speaking.  Some of the class would have known the words already because they were reciting "The Lion Inside" which was performed by the Stages group in February.  Miss Green was very pleased with their performance and the parents who were able to come and watch were very impressed.  Class 4 will be rehearsing/performing with Mrs Steel after the Easter holidays.

Term 3

Phonics week!

This week we had some visitors from UWE. We showed them all of our different phonics activities and games. These included spellamadoodles, spotting sounds in texts, painting and phonics pebbles.

Lola and Ellie

Lola and Ellie had been growing their hair since the summer and had the big chop on the 22nd December 2016.

They decided to donate their hair so that it can be used to make wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment. 

Lola and Ellie raised £1340 and were contacted by justgiving as they were in the top 5% of fundraisers in 2016.

Well done girls! 

Term 2

Puzzle workshop

We enjoyed using reasoning and teamwork to solve the puzzles in the puzzle workshop.

As you can see we are concentrating very hard on trying to balance the penguins so they won’t fall off!

If writing was a piece of cake…

 In class 3 we created a ‘recipe for extraordinary writing!’

Every time we are writing we can check to see that we have used all of the ingredients.

Classroom Library

 This is our classroom  free reader library; when we are ‘free readers’ we can choose a book to take out and bring back when we are finished!


In year 1 we have been writing words for our ‘sound of the week,’ we are learning to read and write all these different words!

BOT - Be On Time!

Class 3 were thrilled to find out we had been on time every day this week and that BOT the badger would once again be coming to stay!

Dancing, games and a visit from Father Christmas. It must be the Christmas Party!


Class 4 writing display


We had a pre-Christmas visit from the professional actor Peter Clifford. He talked to us about poetry and the rhythm of words. We then performed a poem with him. It was fantastic!


“I liked the sounds of the poem Skunka Tanka.” Ava.

“I loved the repeating parts of the poem.” Victoria

“It was fun when we said teeny weeny spider.” Jasper

“I liked it when we said BIG BLUE WHALE!” Zac

“We were doing some rhyming words and it was exciting!” Amelia.

Term 1

Year 1 have been so busy embracing our school seed theme.  

  • We have read The Acorn by Edward Gibbs and have drawn our own interpretations of an acorn growing.
  • We have been Autumn wanderers and found beautiful autumn leaves to add to a collage.
  • We have created sparkly colour explosions to accompany firework acrostic poems.
  • We love our owlets in nests which we created with clay and feathers, while reading The Owl who was afraid of the Dark.
