Year 1 Blog

  • 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.

     

  • Number day!

    Year 1 have been enjoying Number day at school! We were lucky to have many 2p’s brought in by families! We were able to almost line up 3 lines of 2ps!

    Our biggest number worn by children was 112 dots!

  • Terrible Tusks

    Year 1 have been learning about instructions and using bossy verbs! We made terrible tusks by following the instructions in our Gruffalo Crumble recipe book!

  • Christmas in Year 1!

    We have been very busy celebrating Christmas in year 1! We practiced and performed our own Christmas production called Ralph the Reindeer. We had a Christmas fair and got to meet father Christmas! Our last week was filled with Christmas parties and making decorations. We wish you all a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  • Our local Area!

    We went for a walk around our local area for Geography and we  wrote letters to post to our families!
