Year 1 have started their brand new topic – Land Ahoy! We have been fantastic researchers and discovered many new facts about pirates whilst reading non-fiction reports.

We have loved using our knowledge when getting into character in our role-plays! We have a very exciting few weeks ahead! 

Year 1 loved Science Week! We linked our learning of fairy tales and carried out many experiments to see how we could make Baba Yaga disappear! Some of the experiments we carried out tested the enquiry questions:

-          What variables will affect the distance travelled of a rocket?

-          Can you inflate a balloon without using your hands or blowing air into it?

The children also planted their own bean to create a beanstalk for Jack! We have loved to see and hear the children are continuing their learning at home. We have received images of how tall the beanstalks have grown since being in the children's homes!

Well done Year 1 – you are fantastic scientists!

The children have been learning about the Northamptonshire Shoe Industry.

They explored some of the historical shoes from the local museums and have learned about the process of making them.

This week they became Cobblers themselves! During DT, they designed, created and evaluated their very own shoe and they look fabulous!

All of the children shown excellent perseverance when sewing the material together – well done!

The children are learning about traditional tales. This week they have been focusing on their key characteristics.

They used this knowledge to create their own traditional tale which included a  'good character', a 'bad character' and a problem!

The children mapped out their own story and then told it to each other using storytelling language.
We are very excited to see them come to life in the next few days.
We are confident they are going to be fantastic authors!

This week the children have been using their knowledge of arrays and how they can be used to solve division number sentences.

The children challenged themselves by looking for patterns and identifying which amounts can be shared equally between 2 and 3 groups.

What a fantastic bunch of mathematicians!
