Welcome to our Year One class page.  In Year One our teachers are Miss Morris, Mrs Porter and Mrs Coelho.

Science in Year One

We have been scientists today and have been testing materials to see if they are waterproof or not. 


Our trip to Reading Museum

As part of our new topic of Toys and Games we took a trip to Reading Museum to learn all about the sorts of toys Victorian children played with. Have a look at some of our favourite photos from the trip. 


This week we have continued our work on comparing numbers.  We have started to use the symbols <,> and = to create strips using towers of cubes, numicon and number cards.

 Edita has compared the numbers 9 and 10.  

   Elena has compared the numbers 5 and 2. Fantastic work!


Forest School in Year One

 In Year One we like to spend as much time as possible in our outside classroom.  We do all sorts of fun things like looking for mini beasts, making sun catchers, playing instruments, pond dipping, digging and planting.  We also get to have fun picnics.  Have a look at some of the things that have been keeping us busy outside.



Optical Illusions

As part of our topic - Sensational Senses, we have been looking at pictures that make us say, "I cant believe my eyes!"  We had a go at making some of our own.  

 We have also been looking at how artists provoke emotions in their work.  We had a go at making some clay faces.  Can you tell what emotion they are feeling?
