Alima does not have any internet connection, but that has not stopped her! She asked our wonderful pastoral team for help and they provided her with a workbook. It is amazing to see her doing her work – well done Alima! Keep working hard because we want your brains to continue to grow strong!

In English we have been using our imagination to change the story ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’. We have made our own and I challenge you to use the story map to retell the story (with actions) to a parent, sister or friend. Comment with your favourite action or drawing.
This week we have be learning to measure things in standard measurements (cm) and using our knowledge of the keywords taller, tallest, shorter, shortest, longer and longest. We are beginning to understand vertical and horizontal too! Please enjoy our video of us exploring length and height…
In English we are learning about patterned stories and we have been developing our speaking skills by becoming storytellers and re-telling the story. Then, we have considered how patterned stories help us as readers. Mild challenge – what story are we reading? Hot challenge – what is the repeated pattern? Super spicy challenge – how […]
1 Red are learning about repeated patterned stories and have been introduced to the fictional texts through ‘Monkey and Me’ by Emily Gravett. Challenges: Mild: type up the repeated pattern in the story. Hot: with an adult think about the affect a repeated pattern has on the reader.
You all looked amazing in your costumes… Our day has been filled with excitement, imagination and innovation! The children worked very hard to adapt our story and make their own. Please watch our video. Can you guess what our story for the day was? Finally, as a treat at the end of the video, I […]
During Science week, we have been learning about David Attenborough, and acting like him by exploring the fascinating animals in each continent of the world. We have explored cold climates, hot climates, dry climates and wet climates. A scorching climate we explored the African Savanna and created a habitat for the animals to live in.
We have learnt so much during music week! We have used so many key words including: tempo, beats, pitch and lyrics. We created album covers for our cover of the song Ghost Town by The Specials (see our separate music video blog). challenge: write one of our key words and write what it means.
The children created a music video for out Ghost Town song by The Specials.
Thank you to all of the ECO Warriors who helped make our biodome a tidier and usable area (a special thank you to Mrs Beniston too)! We were so excited to make sure that all the weeds were cleared and that the soil trays are ready for the school to use. It made the children […]
In Year 1 we have been learning and adapting our class poem! We have used our rhyming skills to add a line to great a bigger verse and we got to recite the poem too! We hope you enjoy our learning…
In our Science topic of animal antics, we have explored the terminology vertebrate and invertebrate. Then, we used our previous knowledge of animals and how they move to decide whether they have back bone or not. Challenges – what is an invertebrate? Can you name 5 vertebrates?
Please watch our video showcasing our maths learning of tens and ones! Listen carefully because there is a challenge at the end… Do you want to help at home? Please support your child to count in 10s to 100 and this will support their learning at school.
Ianis and his Dad made this at home. Can you tell me what animal type it is and what features the animal has?
We wanted to share with you a blog of our PE lessons because we thoroughly enjoy PE!
Please look at what we discussed in our first ECO Warrior meeting! We are all enthused to be ECO Warriors and are excited to be helping towards looking after our school.
We all made progress in our spellings – this week we got our best scores!

In Science this week, we have a recognised a variety of animals and their body parts. Then, we made models and recognised whether they are amphibians or reptiles. Please enjoy our video…
This week we are learning to identify fiction and non-fiction. We are looking for the features of non-fiction in a variety of books and talking about them too! We learnt loads in our first lesson on it…
We celebrated a Kenyan style Christmas based on our story book. We developed our listening skills and imagination whilst playing our made up game of musical balance. Plus, we decorated our classrooom with paper chains and we all became elves for the day!
During Celebrations Around the World week, 1 Red virtually travelled to Kenya; discussed Kenyan life and made Kenyan necklaces. We have developed our knowledge of the world, our recognition of shapes, our speaking and listening skills and our respect of other cultures.
What a superstar! Our young reader has shown great enthusiasm and understanding of the text she has been reading. She followed instructions to make her own musical instrument. We were so excited that we had to play it together!
In 1 Red we developed our fine motor skills by making a cube from spaghetti and play doh. This helped us to recognise how many faces a cube has, understand the term ‘faces’ and recognise corners. After, we talked about ither 3D shapes and how many faces they have.
As ECO coordinator, Mrs Carter is creating a group of tenacious, respectful and caring children to help us actively play a part in looking after our environment and thinking about looking after our world. We would like a grandparent/mum/dad or carer to be involved in with supporting our ECO Warriors every half term to develop […]
We have been learning about the seasons in year 1 this half term. Please enjoy our blog.
This week the children are learning about instructions. We have identified imperative verbs (bossy verbs) in a text and read a text to complet a task. Through this we have developed our reading skills of blending words using phonics and our understanding of what we are reading. Look at how much fun we had…
We would like the children to get creative at home! We are creating a phonics display and would love some of the children’s aliens on the wall. As we know so many parents are very creative in 1 Red, we would like you to help your child make an alien to go on display. Here […]
