Summer 2017

As part of our seaside topic we designed and made our own boats.  We thought carefully about the materials we wanted to use and how we would fix and join each part together.  We also thought about the detail we wanted to add onto our boats, such as flags and port holes.  We were then very lucky to have an afternoon with our parents and carers who lent a helpful hand during the making process!  We finally painted our boats and were all very proud of our final products.
We also had a super morning of fun when Sauncey Wood and The Lea year one classes joined us for a mini sports day! We worked together as a class to earn points for Manland and we really enjoyed participating alongside the other children.  We ended the morning by all sitting in a circle together on the field and enjoying some squash whilst being awarded our certificates!

Spring 2017

Year 1 had a fantastic time on our trip to Cuffley Camp! We began our adventures by exploring the woodland area for animal clues. We then worked in our groups to build safe homes for a small mouse. We had to think about the different natural materials we could use to help keep the mouse safe and dry! After that we had a much needed rest at lunch before the afternoon activities commenced! We went on a group scavenger hunt to find pieces of a jigsaw to help us learn about the life cycle of a plant. Simon, our leader, then taught us about the different parts of the plant and their jobs! Finally we collected some soil which we used to make beautiful paintings alongside watercolour paints. We learnt lots on our exciting trip and have come back to school and planted our own sunflower seeds to see if they grow into big plants too!

Autumn 2016

We have had an exciting start to the year and are all pleased to be in our wonderful new classroom! It was lovely to meet lots of you at our ‘meet the teacher’ morning – please do drop by and say hi if you couldn’t make it.
 
So far in Year 1 we have been busy learning about Roald Dahl and celebrating his 100th birthday! We are now moving on to our ‘All About Me’ topic and we are looking forward to learning lots of new and exciting things!
