Y1 – Spring 2

Welcome to the Year 1 page!

This week in school!

Our stars of the week are…

This week we enjoyed a super visit to Petersfield library.

In Explore and Learn we have been making amazing spring gardens, building models of a new London after the fire and exploring tens and ones to make two digit numbers.

On the last day of term the Easter bunny visited. We had great fun searching for the eggs that were left in our classroom.

This week in Science …


We had a very exciting Science day on Wednesday.  Nick Geary came in to show us some very interesting experiments. We found out that Rabbits class had more electricity than Squirrels class!

In Science this term we have been learning about the Seasons.  In Autumn we know that the leaves on trees change colour and fall off.  We did an experiment to find out which colours were hiding in different leaves, the results were really surprising!

Ask us what we found out.

We know that in Winter it can be very cold and sometimes it snows.  We wanted to know what this feels like so we made some of our own snow!

The theme for British Science Week this year was Time.  We talked about Time being all around us and how we can tell the time.  We then investigated how many star jumps we could do in one minute, the highest was 80!

This week in Design and Technology we made moving pictures, using sliders and levers, to show part of the story of The Great Fire of London.

This week we really enjoyed meeting Andy Seed. We joined in with his super poem about cats and loved hearing what he found out when he interviewed different interesting animals.


In Explore and Learn this week we have been investigating how ice melts, role playing The Great Fire of London using the playhouse as a bakery and using blocks to build models of London.

In maths we have been adding and subtracting in tens.

In computing we have been programming Beebots.

After hearing about the Great Fire of London we made Tudor houses with small parts in Explore and Learn.

This week in school!

Our stars of the week are…


In English we learned about nouns and adjectives and then used them to describe the Big Bad Wolf.


In maths we have been counting in multiples of ten.

Then we used repeated addition.


In PE we are improving our ball skills.  We have to control the ball carefully.


In D&T we learned how to make sliders and levers. Then we made moving pictures.


In Science we have been talking about the four seasons and the changes that we have seen.  We thought about similarities and differences between the seasons.


Our stars of the week are…

In English we read the story of The Three Little Pigs. We have described the wolf’s appearance and emotions using adjectives.

In maths we have been solving subtraction problems.


To begin our work in Design and Technology we have been searching for levers and sliders.

This week we have practised skills and extended our learning during Explore and Learn time. We had lots of fun too!
