Put on your best outfit Year 1 because you are invited to have tea with the Queen.  Use your best manners and comb your hair, as one will not be amused if you don't!  We are finding out about England's capital city, London.  We are looking at the history, transport and famous landmarks.  We will be taking a step back in time to find out how the Great Fire of London started.

On a cold afternoon in January, the Queen came to visit Moose & Orca class!! It was a very special afternoon....

The Queen made Mrs Euesden a Dame...

We made flags and decorations. We even prepared a special dance for the queen

Welcome to Year 1!

In year one this Autumn half term the topic has been ‘Ourselves.’

We have been learning about our environment and local area.  In geography we have drawn maps and visited Hatfield Forest to develop our mapping skills.   We also went on an autumn walk and learnt about hedgehogs.  Can your child remember how many spines a hedgehog has?

In maths we have covered addition, subtraction and shape.  We learnt the names and properties of 3d shapes and found real objects in our environment.  The children have practised counting daily and have worked hard on their number formation.

In English and topic, we have studied Harvest and really enjoyed the story of The Little Red Hen.  We also learnt about poetry and stories with familiar patterns.

Each week the two classes have been really enthusiastic in participating in tennis coaching.  They have also developed their balls skills in P.E.  

As well as painting self-portraits, everybody took part in art day and the pupils were thoroughly engrossed when studying the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
