Hello and a warm welcome to Year 1. 

The children have made a great start to the year and have been working really hard.

We look forward to sharing our learning with you.

1L enjoyed using their observational skills on a tree identification hunt around the school grounds. We looked closely at leaves and were encouraged to identify and describe what we saw and found.

This week in 1W we have been learning to tell the time. So far we have learned about the analogue clock face and the language related to time and have learned to tell the time to the hour and write it too. The children each made their own clock and have enjoyed using them to test each other. There’s no putting them to bed early now mums and dads!

In science today 1W went for a walk to find as many different plants as they could. They took photos of them and named some of them too. Back in class they then drew their favourite plants from the walk.

Year 1 were asked to design and then make a room for a story character over the Easter break. These are the amazing results for 1W. Thank you for all your super work and a big thank you to the parents for their help with this project.
