Spring 2 – Week 1

Stars of the Week: Mia and Gabriel

This week, Class 1 looked at the weather again in science. As we are going to be looking at how the weather changes in the Summer, it is important that we can look at temperature. We looked at thermometers and how they show how hot or cold something is. Everyone had a chance to hold one and see the red line go up.

We then looked at the temperature outside so that we could start our weather tracking sheets. The class will be filling these tracking sheets everyday at home for a week.

Note to Parents: please bring the sheets back to school by Monday 4th March.

Spring 1 – Week 5

Stars of the Wek: Eloise and Elishua

This week, we have had a focus on internet safety to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2024. The theme this year was change with a focus on things that can change over the long term – such as phones becoming mobile – to things that change over the short term – such as settings in a game. We looked at a story where someone had a video playing that they didn’t want to see and we discussed that it would be a good idea to stop watching if it made them feel uncomfortable.

Spring 1 – Week 4

Stars of the Week: Romeo and Freiya

This week, Class 1 have looked at funny stories. We read a story about feeding animals food that they shouldn’t eat, such as giving a zebra some meat to eat. We are currently planning our own next part of the story and we will write it into our own story next week.

In Science, we considered what different objects are made out of and why we decided to make them out if those things. For example, we use glass for windows because it is transparent.

Spring 1 – Week 3

Stars of the Week: Jenaya and Ryan

This week, Class 1 have made their own ‘Tree of Life’ based on Gustav Klimt’s work. They spent some time last week shaping their tree and they painted it gold. When they came back to the art this week, they added their own cuttings and patterns to their artwork. Lots of children chose to make the eyes that Klimt enjoyed putting onto his artwork.

Spring 1 – Week 2

Stars of the Week: Leo H and Lourdes

Class 1 have had a very busy week this week. We started off the week by looking at instructions in computing. We gave instructions to each other and then we decided what instructions had been given to a Beebot based on its movements.


We also went on a trip to the Cathedral to learn more about the Creation Story from the Bible. We were first told the story of how God created the World with each day shown differently. Afterwards, we played a game to match up items with each day. Finally, we were shown around the Cathedral and looked at different things that reminded us of part of the creation story.

Your child will have a spelling test every Monday. Please make sure spelling books are brought in each Monday in preparation for this. Children will get a new set of spellings each week, these will be stuck into their spelling books. You may use the page the spellings are on for practice, but please do not use further pages.

I will upload the spelling words each week, in case children lose their spellings.

Spring 1 – Week 1

Stars of the Week: Harry and Jeremiah

Class 1 have had a fantastic first week back after the Christmas break. We started a new topic in English and have been telling traditional tales. Class 1 looked at the story This is the House That Jack Built. They were read this poem and then told it in a story fashion. Everyone in Class 1 then had to learn how to make it into a story and orally told the story to other children in the class. Some children even said theirs to the whole class!


Autumn 2 – Week 7

Stars of the Week: Maleeha and Ariana

Year 1 have had a very busy week full of festive fun and finishing topics! In R.E, we looked back on all of the Nativity characters and decided, based on their attributes, which one we think we are most similar to. We looked at all of their positive characteristics and thought about how we could use this to consider how we live our own lives.

In Geography, we thought about what we would wear at different times of the year based on the seasons. The summer is hotter so we would probably wear shorts and t-shirts. In the winter, we would have our thick coats on to keep us warm!

Autumn 2 – Week 6

Stars of the Week: Arabella and Nika

This week, Class 1 finally made their lunchboxes. The room was very messy as everyone cut and stuck their pieces of recycling. Everyone thought of creative ways to join their lids to their boxes to make sure that their lunches would be safe.
