Year 1 Learning Autumn Term 1


Year 1 have settled in well and were certainly confident when speaking to our Digital Leaders. Here's what they had to say.


In maths, they have been securing their number facts and counting forwards and backwards. In writing, they have been working super hard on their phonics and practising every single day!


They have been certainly pushed in their learning and had lots of favourites to share. Science was a particular favourite where they have been learning about humans. Other top moments included P.E. where they have been using their bodies to create shapes. Of course, the age old favourite subject of lunchtime came up as well.


Some brand new things they have learnt include new tricky sounds in phonics and measuring accurately - they even measured the door!


In their Mental Health project, Year 1 have been exploring their feelings and creating art to go with it.


The Year 1 pupils were very eager to share their work about the upcoming sensory gardens they are designing and making. They shared that they may be making: poppies, tree-houses, benches, chairs, bird feeders, instruments, campfires, and swings and slides. Wow, how ambitious! We can't wait to see it Year 1.


Well done on all your hard learning Year 1, and well done to the Digital Leader team on their first upload to the school website.
