Year 1 Corfe Castle Trip


As part of our ‘I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff’ topic, Year 1 went on a fairy tale trip to Corfe Castle. Whilst we were there, we listened to stories in the castle grounds, sketched pictures and had the most wonderful time trying out games and tiptoeing through fairy gardens in the model village. The sun shone all day and the children had a wonderful time. Thank you to all the children for dressing up in such exciting costumes and for being so beautifully behaved!

Our Trip to Upton Country Park


Year One have been to Upton Country Park this week to learn all about trees and other plants. We even learned what evergreen and deciduous mean!


Let's Go Fly a Kite!


Year 1 had a wonderful time designing, making and testing kites to celebrate the end of our Whatever the Weather topic. Some grown-ups came in to help us too!


Year 1 Super Snow Day


We had a super day celebrating the start of our new topic, Whatever the Weather. When we got back from Worship we saw a trail of snow leading outside and a letter from Jack Frost asking us to build a snowman! There was a snow machine outside and all the materials we needed to build our snowmen.



After we had made our snowmen we took part in the Great Ice Challenge. First, we had to see who could melt their ice cubes the quickest. Next, we had to see who could keep their ice cube solid the longest.


Merry Christmas from Year 1


We have been having a wonderful time celebrating Christmas in Year 1. Here are just a few of the things we have been up to…


Naughty elves called Flora, Buddy and Brian have been causing trouble! They have sprayed cream on our tables, drawn on our bananas, got stuck in the tree and made a mess in our classrooms.




We have written letters to Santa Claus and we even got replies!





The Year 6s have helped us to make amazing Christmas cards.




Santa Claus came to visit us and gave us each a present.




Our Super Science Day


Poor Calvin, Coco and Kenco have been getting very wet in all this rain! We decided it would be a good idea to make them each a rain cape, but first we had to find out which materials were waterproof!


We had lots of fun making and testing our rain capes!

Our Class Naming Day!


We had a special naming day to celebrate our new class names - Year 1 are now Australian animals!  1CK has become Koalas, 1AH has become Wallabies and 1LP has become Platypuses.

We learned fun facts about our animals then drew and labelled them, we did some artwork in the style of Aboriginal art and we had a go at some fun Rugby skills. Everyone had a great day!

Carnival of the Animals


To celebrate the end of our Rumble in the Jungle topic we had a  Carnival of the Animals and lots of grown ups came to watch.

We made masks, sang a song, recited a poem and performed a dance!

Look at our amazing costumes—can you tell which animals we are?
