Some of Class 1’s Areas of Learning

Class 1’s Autumn Term Planning.


The Year 1s have been practising their handwriting whilst Reception children were outside practising their gross motor skills.

Greater Than and Less Than

With the help of Colin the Crocodile Year 1 have been learning about greater than and less than.

The Enormous Turnip

The Year 1's have been sequencing the story of The Enormous Turnip in their Literacy lesson today.


In our RE lesson this morning we learnt about Harvest which is a Christian celebration.  We learnt how the harvest is gathered in and that some people have lots to eat but there are some people in the world that do not have enough.


In our numeracy lesson we were joining parts to make a whole.


We enjoyed making funny pumpkins.  Mrs Markham and Mrs.McAreavey both carved pumpkins for the classroom.  We scooped out the seeds and looked and felt inside the pumpkin!

Remembrance Day

We have learnt about Remembrance Day and World War 1 and World War 2.  We made poppies, wreaths, painted poppies and wrote about why we remember those that gave their lives for us.  The whole school painted poppy stones which will be placed on the front of the school to remember the people who lived in the village and died during the wars.


Our senses lesson this afternoon was all about hearing.  We played a game where we had to match the instrument to the sound then we enjoyed investigating the musical instruments!
