The Solar System

Alice Hall (a.hall) on: Year 1 Blog

We are creating our own Solar System out of paper mache. The children worked in pairs to create their planets shape and size before they began to cover it in paper mache. The children are looking forward to painting their planets. 

We have lift off!

We designed and created our own space rockets out of junk modelling. The children were able to design their rocket in any way they want but had one challenge, their rocket had to be able to stand. It was quite challenging to make the rockets stand on their own but the children continued to work out ways to achieve this challenge.

Marshmallow Bridges

Alice Hall (a.hall) on: Year 1 Blog

We made bridges using spaghetti and marshmallows. We tested the bridges strength by using coins to see which bridge could hold the most. We planned out our designs first then used the plans to help use construct our models. 


Bonfire Night

Alice Hall (a.hall) on: Year 1 Blog

To celebrate Bonfire Night we have been creating some EXPLOSIVE art. 

We first used different techniques to make marks on our paper using paint. Once this had dried we then used chalk to add further detail to make our fireworks more realistic. 


Alice Hall (a.hall) on: Year 1 Blog

This week in English, we have started to look at the story of Rapunzel. 

We have learnt the story of Rapunzel through re-telling the story verbally and in writing. 


Autumn 2

Alice Hall (a.hall) on: Year 1 Blog

This term, our topic will be Towers, Tunnels and Turrets. We will learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we’ll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We’ll learn the stories of Rapunzel, The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff and create models inspired by them. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We’ll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and improve our PE skills by playing attacking and defending games.

Your child will have a new homework grid in their homework book that relates to the new topic we will be doing over the next half term. Please only complete one homework task each week, so that the grid will last the whole half term.

Your child will also have a new My Maths task to complete every week which will be added to their login on a Friday. If you are having any problems with logging on please let me know.

Please remember that your child will be doing P.E. on a Monday and Wednesday and will need their PE kit in school. Please can they bring with them P.E trousers, shorts, white top, jumper and trainers. This will allow us to have P.E. indoors and outdoors.

As the cold weather begins to creep in we ask that your child comes to school every day with a coat so they can be ready for whatever the weather.


Thank you

Autumn Nature Walk

Alice Hall (a.hall) on: Year 1 Blog

Today we went on an Autumn walk to look at how our surroundings change as the season changes. We found lots of different coloured leaves, acorns and pine cones. We are going to use the pieces of nature that we found to create Autumn windows.
