Term 4 - 27th February 2020
This week, Year 1 have launched into our Traditional Tales topic. We have had great fun this week learning Little Red Riding Hood off by heart so that it can be retold at home to our friends and family. We are continuing our Victorian's topic this term and beginning to look at Weston in Victorian times.

Term 3 - 16th January 2020
Year 1 have had a good start to the new term. We became historians this week as we launched into our new topic 'The Victorians'. We handled and sketched some artefacts from Victorian times and tried to guess what they were used for. We will be learning all about Queen Victoria, life in the Victorian era and how the Victorians shaped our lives today. We are looking forward to travelling back in time and experiencing a Victorian school day next week.
STARS OF THE WEEK: Lacey G, Millie, Phoebe

Term 2 - 28th November 2019
This week Year 1 have become authors. We have been sharing Steve Anthony’s book ‘The Queen’s Hat’ during our English sessions. The children are planning and writing their own version of ‘The Queen’s Hat’ but they have changed the setting to Weston-super-Mare. We have enjoyed designing a hat for the Queen’s visit to our town and selecting the different places in Weston where the Queen will go to look for her hat. Where will she find it? We cannot wait to share them with you!
STARS OF THE WEEK: Darcie, Cameron F, Charlie, Faith, Lilly A
Term 2 - 14th November 2019
Since returning from half term and to coincide with Maths week, we have launched Sumdog! The children have enjoyed logging on independently and exploring the different mathematical challenges and games that Sumdog has to offer. Over the upcoming weeks, we will be introducing the children to team challenges, edit their avatars and learn how to spend their well-earned coins on items to decorate their Sumdog house. Each child should have come home with a Sumdog log in for them to use to access Sumdog at home, if they wish.
STARS OF THE WEEK: Henry, Isla, Maddison M, Esme T
Term 1 - 22nd October 2019
We have had a very exciting couple of weeks in Year 1. The children of Year 1 are all expert geographers now and are able to spot human and physical features. We had a lovely (but soggy) time at Worlebury Woods and enjoyed putting our newly learnt skills into practise. All children enjoyed searching the woods to find physical and human features and there was even time to splash in some puddles and read a story! Unfortunately, the rain came down in the afternoon meaning we couldn't venture onto the beach, so we had a bus tour of Sand Bay instead! We have enjoyed learning all about Weston-super-Mare this term and we are looking forward to next term's topic 'What is beyond Weston?' where we will be learning about our country, the city of Bristol and the capital city of England, London.
STARS OF THE WEEK: Dexter, Bailey, Tyler, Macey, Layla, Louie, Henry, Alfie, Barnaby, Caden, Wesley, Farrah, Isabelle, Patrick, Coral, William, Grace, Blake, Hadley, Ronnie and Maddie C.
Term 1 - 10th October 2019
Year 1 have had a busy couple of weeks, full of exciting learning. Since our walk in Worle High Street, we have been learning all about aerial view maps and have been practising our mapping skills. We have all created our own aerial view maps and explored the use of keys to help represent places or key items on a map. In the past week, we have been learning about human and physical geographical features that surround us. We are all looking forward to our trip to Worlebury Woods and Sand Bay on Monday to see how many of these features we can spot- fingers crossed the rain will stay away!
Term 1 - 26th September 2019
What an exciting week we have had in Year 1! In English, we have been reading the story ‘Where Bear,’ by Sophy Henn. We had a wonderful surprise when we got to school on Monday. Sophy Henn had sent the children a personalised video message and told us all about where she got the inspiration for the book and how she wrote and illustrated it. We have also been learning all about the different types of homes and shops in our local environment. The children became detectives on Wednesday and went on their first outing of the year to Worle High Street. We were using our check list to see how many of the different homes and shops we could spot near to school. The children were so well behaved and managed to spot all types of homes and lots of different shops. Great job Year 1!
Term 1 - 12th September 2019
Welcome back to our wonderful Year 1 children and families! We have had a great couple of weeks getting to know the children and they have settled into Year 1 brilliantly. We have launched our 'Where in the world are we?' topic this week. The children have enjoyed talking about themselves and their families and are looking forward to learning more about where we live.
