Year 1 Latest news



Today, we rolled our sleeves up, grabbed our tools and made our very own wormery. We also found some worms from the compost bins to live in it. Could one be Superworm? 

In Maths we have been learning to sort objects into groups and recognise numbers to 10.



We had a very exciting day introducing our new topic, which is called...


                               We've got the power!


As part of the day, we designed and made superhero masks, acted out some superhero stories and took part in Old Basford's very prestigious 'Superhero training boot camp'.


Well done future superheroes! 


Building the Dream


Today, Year 1 had a go at some building. We designed what we were going to build using chalk and then came inside to put our plans into action!

Someone Builds the Dream


To start off this year, we looked at the book 'Someone Builds the Dream'. The book contained all types of jobs in it so year 1 had a go at dressing up as some of them.

Welcome to Year 1!

We cannot wait to welcome you into Year 1 and get started with some exciting learning. We have so many wonderful topics planned this year, starting with 'We've got the power'. We hope you all have a lovely summer and we will see you soon!
