School Closure - Learning at home

Learning At Home

We hope you are all safe and well.

Unfortunately, due to COVID 19 we have been unable to deliver the transition parents' meetings and sessions within school that we would normally have. To help the children's transition from Reception to Year 1 in September, teaching staff have made a selection of information slides to explain routines and procedures in Year 1.



March 2020

Year 1 had a very exciting time in a Space Explorer Dome. The children learnt all about the planets and our solar system. They heard lots of ancient stories and were amazed to see the constellations. The children learnt that the sun is a star and found out why the sun moves across the sky. They watched in awe at the different phases of the moon. The Space Dome has certainly inspired some future astronomers in Year 1.

  

 

February 2020

Year 1 children took part in ‘Paddington’s Space Mission’ inspiration day. The children made NASA space badges and rockets ready to take off to the moon. We took off in our rockets and watched the first moon landing by Neil Armstrong. Once we were safely on the moon, we listened and followed instructions to create a moon dance. We also created our own aliens using handprints. After a busy day we listened to the story ‘Whatever Next’ and had our own space picnic on the moon before coming back to Earth. I think the children will all agree that it was an enjoyable day and were left feeling inspired for our learning this term.

 

 

October 2019

This term in Science Year 1 have been investigating their 5 senses. Here are some pictures of some the investigations we have carried out.

Here we are investigating and describing different smells.

We sorted different objects into different textures.

We had a taste testing session to investigate different types of tastes (sour, bitter, sweet, and salty).

As part of DT sessions Year 1 have been looking at how to make marmalade. We had a fantastic day making our own marmalade for Paddington Bear. We think Paddington really enjoyed eating it and so did we!

 

July 2019

On Monday 15th July 2019, Year 1 went on an open top bus ride to Bantock Park. The children enthusiastically explored various playground equipment and enjoyed going on a flower hunt. They had fantastic day and they were superstars on the open top bus. WELL DONE YEAR 1!

On Tuesday 12th March 2019, the children in Year One went on a trip to the Cannock Chase Toy Museum. They learnt about toys from the past and how they have changed. They had lots of fun creating peg dolls, exploring and playing with old fashioned toys. The children enjoyed watching the hilarious Punch and Judy puppet show and performed a toy dance.

Autumn 2018

On Monday 10th September 2018, Year 1 had a fantastic time on Pirate inspiration day. In the morning we learnt to use directional language to find the pirate treasure and worked together to solve a pirate puzzle! We painted our own class pirate ships and used our phonics to help us to read and spell words with coins. We unlocked the secret pirate code by read capital letters to help us find the golden coins hunt In the afternoon we did pirate PE where we had a we had great fun walking the plank and enjoyed listening to pirate stories with Mrs Flanagan.

Spring Term 

March 2018

Year One had a visit from Zoo2U who brought us some some furry, feathery, and scaly creatures as part of our science topic. They met some tortoises, guinea pigs, a hognose snake, boa constrictor, skunk, kestrel, a white faced owl, a greater tenrec and a very noisy parrot! As well as this we also had lots of fun making animal masks, animal habitats and going on a minibeast hunt. The children were able to learn all about the different habitats they live in, what they eat, and animal classifications. A great day was had by all! Have a look at some of our habitats we made. I’m sure you will agree they look amazing!
