Year 1 Blog

  • Christmas Party!

    We had an amazing time during our Christmas Party! We had Christmas treats, and played lots of games like musical chairs, musical bumps, the cheeky elf and detective. Father Christmas also came to visit us and gave us a present! We got brand new K’nex to add to our construction!

  • Year 1’s ‘Bundle of Joy’ nativity this year was amazing! They all worked so hard and are so proud of their  performance. Year 1 had to learn all the narration words and acting lines and made us all proud and smile! Well done!

  • Christmas Fair!

    In Year 1, we enjoyed taking part in the Christmas Fair and visiting the stalls our Year 6’s were hosting. We took part in many different activities, such as: bowling, hooking a bauble, adopting a teddy, bottle flip and many more. Thank you to our Year 6’s for a lovely trip to the fair, we brought back many prizes!

  • Multi Skills

    Year 1 had a fun afternoon developing their skills in jumping, throwing and catching, agility and running.  Great work Year 1!


  • Planting!

    In year 1, we have been planting our own bulbs ready for the Spring! We used  trowels to dig a whole deep enough to put our bulbs in. Now we wait for them to start growing!

  • Diwali

    In Year 1, we have been exploring the Hindu celebration of Diwali! We learned that it is called the festival of lights, and we listened to the story of Rama and Sita. We used coloured rice to create our own Rangoli Patterns!


  • Material Investigators!

    In science, we have been investigating different materials in our classroom and garden! We’ve been looking for objects made from metal, wood, plastic and fabric. We enjoyed going on a material hunt, and creating a tally of how many different materials we could find. We found mostly metal and wood!

    We are also starting to describe how different objects feel, using our sense of touch! We had to think of words to describe what we could feel, and our friends had to guess!

  • Year 1 Walk around South Oxhey

    Year 1 took a walk around South Oxhey last week.  We posted letters home to our families and described the physical and human features of our town.  We had lots of cheery hellos from the public who were delighted to see us out and about learning.

  • Hand print artwork.

    Wow!This week Year 1 were challenged to create hand print artwork… and they did not disappoint!

  • Year 1’s favourite books.

    Here are some of Year 1’s favourite books, starting with Miss Wilkins’, Mrs Jefferis’ and Mrs Irwin’s. Some of the children couldn’t pick one because they loved so many books!
