Hello and welcome to our Year 1 page, we have had a brilliant start to the new school year and it has been lovely to be back with all our friends. We have been learning new maths and literacy skills and looking at different topics such as Penguins and the Great Fire of London. You can use this page to see our wonderful learning, we hope to show you lots of pictures of the fun things we get up to.


We have been practising how to write our numbers correctly, we used the multi link cubes to help us. We have also been recognising and counting the numbers within 1-20. We investigated "What does each digit mean in the number 12?"

Place Value And Counting Within 20

Phonics & Writing

In Phonics we are continuing to learn new sounds to help us with our reading and writing. The picture below is of some of the sounds we know!! We have been learning to write sentences that begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop. Our writing has finger spaces between each word and is on the line.

Fire Service Visit 

On Wednesday 20th October the Fire Service very kindly came to visit us at school. They brought their Fire Truck, parking it in the playground and set the sirens off!! They were loud but it was very exciting. We spent some time in the school hall learning what the Fire Officers do when attending fires, we were able to try on the protective outfits, they were heavy!! They also taught us about STOP!! DROP!! & ROLL!! which is something very important to remember if ever our clothes catch on fire.

Classroom Displays

 We love to display our fantasatic learning on the classroom walls, it reminds us of what we are currently learning and makes the classroom a bright and happy place, below are some pictures from this term.
