Spring Term 2022


Today in Geography we were pirates! We practiced our directional language by directing each other to buried treasure!

Chinese New Year 


What a wonderful Chinese New Year we had! 

We learnt lots of new crafts, and tried Chinese food using chopsticks!

We learnt how to write Chinese characters, and wrote 'Orange class'.

We watched a traditional Chinese dragon dance and learnt why the Chinese years are named after animals.

We also enjoyed some delicious tiger cupcakes which a parent kindly made for us.

What a great day!


In English this term we have been busy learning a lovely story called 'Grandad's Island' by Benji Davies. We have spent time making up actions to the story and creating our story map so that we know the story off by heart. Our next job is to plan and write our own class innovation based on the story. Ask your children to tell you the story using this map!



This term, our Science topic is 'Earth and Space'. We are learning all about the seasons, and the weather at the moment!

We have been for a 'signs of winter' hunt outside, noticing the bare trees, evergreen trees, and cloudy sky. 

We also made our own maps and presented our own weather reports, taking it in turns to present and to film!

Hello, and welcome to Year One 2021-2022!

This year the Orange class team are: Mrs Ozbeser with Mrs Smith and Mrs English.

This year the Osan class team are: Mrs Atkins with Miss Warner and Mrs Fisher.





Autumn Term 2021



Our theme this term is 'The Great Fire of London'. We have been busy learning all about how the fire started in 1666 in a bakery in Pudding Lane in London. We have had fun role playing as bakers, and creating fire and a river with art, whilst learning about how and why the fire spread, and how the people had to escape by boat on the River Thames.





In English we have been reading a book called 'The Tower Bridge Cat' by Tee Dobinson. We have used the text to talk about London and the landmarks that we can see there, and how London may have changed since The Great Fire of London. 

We have written beautifully about the book, using our phonics knowledge to spell, and practicing our capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.



In maths this term we have been practicing our number bonds to 10, using the 'part-part-whole' model to help us. We have also begun looking at money, and practicing our 10 times tables every day!




This term in Science our topic is 'Materials'. We have started off by building boats, and experimenting with different materials to see which is best. We found out that plastic was light and waterproof, so worked better than cardboard! We also tested to see whether a boat needed to be balanced. We thought about what the boats that people used during The Great Fire of London could have been made from.



In R.E this term, we are learning about 'The Creation' in Christianity. We have learnt about how God created the world in seven days, and what he created each day. We created this beautiful display to show what happened on each day!
