  • 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!

  • Super home learning

    Another very busy week for the Year 1’s!

    Our Maths focus this week was mostly 3D shapes, the children did shape hunts at home with some writing and then were challenged to build their own shapes and build things using the 3D shapes! We had a very impressive bridge built by Jayden.

    The English this week was super… very apt for work on Supertato! The children drew or created their own characters and labelled them. They also worked on some Science with healthy eating and wrote their own menus for a day.

  • Year 1 home learning.

    Another busy week of working on money and writing letters to Floyd. Thankfully the sun reappeared for us this week and the children definitely loved being able to get out and enjoy it!

  • ‘Stuck’ in home learning!

    Our English work was around ‘Stuck’ by Oliver Jeffers this week, the children listen all of the objects that Floyd threw into the tree, drew story maps, wrote about what they would do to get the kite down and in maths were working on number bonds and halving shapes. Super work as always, Year 1!

  • Very busy week!

    Year 1 had a very busy week at home! More money work, some work on feelings, and some Science with plant labeling. Fantastic work, lovely to see families getting involved with the learning too and helping with learning about money by ‘playing’ shops.

  • Another busy home learning week.

    What a busy week with more baking and life skills, lots of money work and some fantastic writing about a hand made obstacle course too. Awesome work, Year 1!

  • Half term fun.

    The children have coped so well with home learning, but it has been great to see they’ve been having fun in their half term too! Here’s some of the pictures, it was wonderful to see so many children getting involved with cooking, and some were doing learning through half term too with Science and experiments.
