Welcome to Year 1
Year 1 is a very busy class; we are always exploring different ideas, creating, building and performing!
We play together, share together and learn together. We are gaining confidence to try new things and develop our many talents. We visit the Ravenshead Library, practice multi skills in the hall and regularly improve our keyboard skills on the laptops. We produce creative homework with help from our parents and carers, practice our handwriting and learn to tell the time. We suggest topics to investigate and our contributions are always valued by the Year One team. We feel safe and enjoy reaching the challenges that are set for us. We love to learn in the school`s outdoor environment including playing in the treehouse and observing the seasons change in the garden and pond.

Mad Hatter’s tea party.
We had an exciting few days decorating cakes and making fairy teacups, making magical worlds and using our money knowedge to buy cakes for the Mad Hatter's tea party. Thank you to the parents for providing cakes and shoe boxes, the children had a lovely time.
Year 1 had lots of fun making firework patterns from leaves today. We also searched for number rockets which had landed all over the school grounds. We added and subtracted the numbers together.
We explored the school grounds and found lots of seasonal changes. We identified different leaves and worked in teams to build the biggest leaf pile.
We collected lots of apples from the school garden and baked delicious apple crumbles.
Today we have been learning all about the festival of light called Divali.
