Y1 – Autumn 1

We have enjoyed our Maths and English lessons this week, especially writing firework poems! Ask a member of Year 1 to tell you all about their exciting words to describe fireworks!

Habitat Day!

We had a great Habitat Day thinking about different animals and where they live.  We went out into the playground to make habitats for minibeasts and made amazing collages for an animal of our choice.

Ask a member of Year 1 about habitats for animals and see if they can tell you where animals come from and all about camouflage!

Today we had a visit from some very special tiny visitors! We saw a spider and some caterpillars! Mrs Attley told us all about them.

We would like to say a very big THANK YOU to Mrs Attley for coming to school to show us so many animals! We have really enjoyed seeing them and learning all about them!

We have been to visit Petersfield Library! We were very excited and enjoyed a Treasure Hunt activity to find the books in the Children’s Section.  We would like to thank the Library Staff for their help and for the super story read by Agi!

Ask a member of Year 1 to tell you how many books you can borrow from the library free of charge!


What a surprise we had today when Mrs Attley arrived at school with chicks! We loved hearing all about them and how we should look after them.


Today we had a visit from Mrs Attley who brought her guinea pigs to see us! Their names were Nala and Maisie.  We talked about how to look after them and what their favourite food and drinks were.


We are really enjoying our animal guest visits! Today we met Hurricane the Tortoise!

Today we had a very special visitor! We met Lily Poppy the rabbit and learned all about looking after a rabbit! We would like to say a very big thank you to Mrs Attley for bringing Lily Poppy to meet us!

We have have been reading a story called ‘Handa’s Surprise’ this week in English. We have been writing sentences about the story and making stick puppets.
