Growing together - making a difference

Welcome to Year 1!

The rain might have stopped us from having Sports Day outside this year, but we had a great time doing all of our events indoors!


G R O W I N G !

For Red Nose Day we dressed up as heroes - superheroes or personal heroes!

Mr Godfrey thinks his awesome class are all heroes, so he dressed as one of them.

In English we have been learning how to write instructions. Every good board game needs instructions, so we designed our own Space-themed board games, wrote clear instructions on how to play the game and then played the games!

For World Book Day we dressed up as our favourite literary characters. Can you guess who we are?





This Spring term our topic is

Welcome to


This Autumn term our topic is

Wonderful Weather!

We talk about how we feel in class. We can have lots of different feelings. We drew hearts and painted them in different colours to represent these feelings.

We labelled these areas and mixed the colours.

We had such a good time on scooter day! Those of us who had never scootered before were so much more confident by the end of the session. That includes Mr Godfrey!




Please listen to these songs, which are about counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
