The Great Fire of London

Year 1 have been learning about the Great Fire of London that took place in 1666.

They created vibrant pictures using a sponging technique and with silhouettes of buildings you can see the dramatic burning scene that would have been visible at the time.

The Three Little Pigs

We looked at this traditional tale in literacy.

This is our display of collaged characters, "Wanted" posters and character speech bubbles. You will also notice our storyboard, made up of symbols which we use as prompts

to help us re-tell the story.

You will see we have also been thinking about connectives.

Visit to Umberslade Farm

We went on a visit to this big working farm and enjoyed a day getting to learn about a variety of farm animals and how the farmer cares for them.

There were several hands on opportunities like handling a guinea pig, a rabbit and also meeting a very friendly white rat.


We have been learning about plants as part of our topic work and created this beautiful display of collaged sunflowers for which we made labels.





During our  literacy lessons  we have written poetry using similes.

2d Shape Pictures

In our maths lessons we have been looking at a range of 2d shapes.

We created this wonderful display of pictures made from cut-out 2d shapes.

The children had some wonderful ideas and came up with a range of interesting subjects in their pictures. Some examples are: a snowman, a Party Bus, flowers

as well as cars and houses.
