Year 1




Year 1 loved the trip to Chirk Castle. They got dressed up, explored the castle and made biscuits. Year 1 were so well behaved and really sensible. They had lots of fun. Have a look.

Year 1 loved the dinosaur workshop. They got to make their own fossils, touch a real T- Rex skull and hold fossils of teeth and claws and lots more.....take a look.


In Maths we have been learning all about money. At the end of the week we got to use all we learnt to visit the shop and buy some items. We had lots of fun. 



In English we have been writing about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Year 1 were fantastic during our hot seating activity, taking on the role of the characters

It's hatched! Inside the egg we found a baby dinosaur. Do you know what dinosaur it is?


Year 1 have been learning about mini beasts. We went on a minibeast hunt and created a bug hotel. Look what we got up you. 


What mini beasts can you find in your garden?

We are very excited in Year 1 because we have now got a class pet. It's starting to hatch. What could it be? 


Year 1 have been learning all about greater and less than in Maths. We met Charlie the crocodile who helped us. Take a look at the numbers we like to eat. 

Look what Year 1 found at school! We went on a dinosaur adventure and found hidden footprints and a huge dinosaur that had laid some eggs. We loved it and brought them all back to class. Look how excited we are. 


Christmas Story

Year 1 had a fantastic time at St Mary's Church learning all about the Christmas story. We met some wise men and some cheeky camels. Take a look




Look what Year 1 made! We all enjoyed using our instructions to make Gruffalo Crumble and we ate it all up. Yummy. Well done Year 1!

Welcome to Year 1!

Year 1 have settled in really well in our new class and routines. Miss Dowling and I are very pleased with the way the children have worked hard and produced some super work. Keep it up!


Year 1 are enjoying the 'Gruffalo' theme and loved creating their own terrible creatures, hot seating characters from the story and creating a Gruffalo in Art and Design. We are excited to use our instructions to make Gruffalo crumble (coming soon).
Take a look.

Black History Week

Year 1 have enjoyed learning about the culture of Africa and took part in some African dancing workshops. We all loved exploring African music and loved singing, playing instruments and performing our song 'Kye Kye Koolay'.
