The Year 1 team.

Term 1

Year 1 are going to be busy this term learning about festivals and celebrations starting with Diwali. They have learnt about why we celebrate Diwali, the story of Rama and Sita and that Diwali is the festival of light. They have made their own Rangoli patterns, designed their own Mehndi patterns and made some Diva lamps. Have look at how enthusiastic and creative we have been in the photos below.


Term 1

We are very happy with the children for their hard work and happy attitudes towards our learning at
the start of Year 1. We are also especially proud of how the children have been so happy coming into
school each morning and how much more independent they have become, even in only a few
weeks. Well done to all of the children in Year 1!

We are busy learning phonics in the morning as well as maths. In the afternoon we are enjoying our
free flow topic time.

We have learnt about builders and buildings and we have been busy constructing lots of structures.
We have experimented with lots of different materials and tested their properties.
Here are some photographs of the fun we have been having:

We designed our own houses for three little pigs.

We built a wall - The Big Bad Wolf could not blow it down!

We made sure the wall was strong!

We were busy carrying out building work in the building yard!

We designed and constructed some strong structures!

We had a look at some Harvest and Autumn natural materials.

We loved our role play building area!


We sorted different materials.


We explored the texture of materials and described them!

We are looking forward to more exciting learning in term 2! If you would like more information on
what we will be learning in term 2, please look at our Curriculum Newsletter which will be on the
website soon.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
