Year One are Learning about...

Look at what we are learning about in Year One!


Year One have been learning how to control the robots. We have given the Bee-Bots commands such as forwards, backwards, turn left and turn right. 

Traditional Tales


This Half Term we have been reading different Traditional Tales. We have looked at Snow White and Cinderella, and completed different activities about the characters and settings in the tales. This week, we are looking at The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We worked in groups to think of a sentence to match each picture from the story, and then used our Think it, Say it, Write it and Check it approach to write the sentences. 

Firework Poems


In English we have been exploring the different features in poetry. We have looked at many different poems on the theme of fire. We enjoyed Enid Blyton's Firework Night and identified the rhyming words.

We have created our own poems using our senses. We have thought about what we see, hear, smell, taste and feel on Bonfire Night. Have a look at some of our brilliant writing! 

Open Afternoon


Throughout Black History Month we have been learning about Mae Jemison. We know she is significant because she was the first black female to go to space. We thought about what type of rocket Mae might have gone to space in, and made these with our parents and grandparents on Open Afternoon. 

Take a look at some of our previous Year One learning below. 

History Homework About Old Toys

Year One are reading No-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom! 


We have been reading the fiction story No-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom, by Sue Hendra. We have worked in groups to add a new page to the story. We thought about lots of new ideas for what Bernard's bottom was used for. Blake suggested a 'mouse in a house,' and Noah suggested a 'giraffe for a cap.' Have a look at our work below!
