Year 1 Blog

  • Trip to London Zoo

    To support our learning on animals and their habitats, Year 1 travelled to London Zoo with Year 2 to visit the animals. The children took part in a animal workshop where they explored different animal skins. We loved meeting our favourite animals in their homes.

  • Water play!

    Friday was the hottest day of the year! Year 1 were  excited to enjoy some waterplay in the afternoon. Some even got us teachers soaked!

  • Boats!

    Year 1 have been delighted to try new skills in our DT project… Making a boat for an explorer! We designed our own boats, designed our prints, used hot glue and used new materials to create a boat for our explorers.

  • Celebrating Platinum Jubilee at Greenfields!

    A wonderful week of celebrating the Queen’s platinum jubilee! Year 1 have enjoyed making sandwiches, crowns, flags and bunting. We decorated delicious biscuits and participated in a whole school party!

  • Easter at Greenfields!

    An amazing week of Easter celebrations! Year 1 have enjoyed searching for eggs in our Easter egg hunt. We’ve been excited about the Easter fair hosted by our lovely Year 6 and 5 children. To top off the week we participated in our Easter Bonnet Parade! Wishing everyone a happy Easter!

  • Red Nose Day Races!

    An amazing red nose day celebrated in school. Year 1 enjoyed making jokes the whole day, and having our own ‘Nose and Spoon’ Race! Thank you to everyone for their donations!

  • Singing Workshop

    Year 1 enjoyed taking part in a singing workshop! We got to work with partners and practise using our musical instruments.

  • World Book Day!

    A busy week for Year 1! We loved participating in World Book Day, and exploring a whole range of books and reading materials. We loved dressing in our PJs for the day!

    We played pass the book (pass the parcel) to look at the books around our classroom.

    We had stories in our reading garden with adults

    In the afternoon, I challenged children to become storytellers, creating their own books and stories boards!

    It was a fantastic day to explore books and think about why reading is important to us.

  • Pancake Day

    We celebrated Pancake day for the first time after 2 years! Year 1 enjoyed participating and cheering on for our school’s pancake race (Congratulations Vikings for winning!)  and in the afternoon we treated ourselves to some delicious pancakes.

  • Camouflaging

    In science, we have been exploring how animals use camouflaging to hide from predators and how predators use it in hunting. We decided to see if we could find areas outside where our toy animals could use camouflage.
