Welcome to Year 1

Autumn 1 2019 

This half term we have been looking at 'Our Local Area' we have investigated the human and physical geographical features of the school. We have also enjoyed visits from previous head teachers of St. Pius X who told us all about how the school used to be before the children stared here!

In PE this half term we have once again enjoyed the expertise of Mr Thompson. We have been enjoying learning how to throw, bounce and stop objects effectively. 

We have had a fantastic start to the year and everyone has settled in to Key Stage 1 brilliantly!

Summer 2 2019

This term in Year One we have looked at the Seaside and enjoyed a trip to the beach. We even got an ice-cream. While we were at the beach we spent some time exploring and looking at all of the different things on a beach, we saw some Jellyfish too!

This term we have also been lucky enough to have some lovely weather. We have done lots of PE and continuous provision outside and have really enjoyed taking our reading books outside into the sun.

 Finally, we have been getting ready for Year 2! We have made stars and a solar system ready for our new classroom.

Summer 1 2019

This half term in Year One we have been lucky enough to be able to do PE outside in the sun! We’ve enjoyed playing dodge ball and learning to throw accurately with Mr Thompson.

We have also been learning all about space, we’ve spent some time looking at The Solar System, how rockets are launched into space and now we’re making our very own rockets in design and technology.

Spring 2 2019

This term in Year 1 we have learnt all about toys, old and new and how they are similar and different! We really enjoyed looking at the Pogo Stick and how people played with this.

We have spent lots of time outside learning about fractions and even got to use pancakes to help us find a half of a shape!

We have been very lucky this term and have been learning lots of multi skills in PE, we have done things such as hockey, football and even basketball.

Autumn 2 2019

In Year One this term we have spent some time looking at Teddy Bears. We have looked at the history of Teddy Bears and why we have them today! We even looked at where they were first invented on an interactive map. We carried this over to our design and technology lessons and have designed and made our very own teddy bears that we cut out, stuffed and decorated!

Some of us have also been completing our mile run in the junior playground with Mr Thompson in the mornings.

This term we had a lovely come and learn afternoon where we taught our visiting grownups all about pop art and created our own pop art teddy bear!

Autumn 1 2019

This term in Year One we have spent lots of time looking at castles! We learnt all about the different parts of a castle and spent some time looking at where they are located on an interactive map of England. We learnt that there is still a castle on Piel Island.

In English we have looked at pictures of knights and have used lots of adjectives to describe them and write lists about them.

This term we have also designed and made our very own castle flag, considering different colours, shapes and patterns we have seen on castles, we had lots of fun making these.

In music we have been spending time learning to find the beat of a song, when we mastered this we moved on to using musical instruments to play in time to the beat of a song!

In Year One we have also spent time getting for and taking party in completing a mile of exercise!
