Year 1

Welcome to our Year 1 Class Pages

In Art we used small world cars, trains and tractors to create patterns with their tyres.

Year 1 had a very exciting zoom call with Santa and then a magical visit from his elves!

Christmas play

In drama we have been thinking about our emotions and how we can show them through our facial expressions and our body language.

We had a really exciting morning last week when we recorded our songs for the Christmas play. We felt like real popstars!

We made beaded African necklaces

African drumming

Handa's Surprise - after working really hard for the last two weeks the Year One children had a wonderful day drawing and tasting fruit from the story!

We made our very own African necklaces

Children in Need 2020

We made our very own Flanders Field for Remembrance Day

We love working on number formation!

This week in literacy we have been writing riddles about African animals. Can you read the riddles and guess the animal?

Look at these beautiful African sunset and animal silhouette pictures the children have done today using pastels!

This half term in Year 1 we will be looking at the continent Africa.


We will be exploring some African artwork using pastels, cutting skills, pen work and painting. We will also be looking at the animals that live in Africa to help us with our writing. We will be comparing a small town in Kenya to Worksop and thinking about what is similar and different about these two places.


Keep your eyes peeled for the amazing work we do! 

In RE we have been looking at churches. We looked at stained glass windows and had a go at making our own!

Dance Tuesdays!

This week we have been sketching the Priory church in Worksop. We used sketching pencils and looked carefully at all of the details we needed to sketch.


We love using a variety on maths equipment in our lessons to help us learn :)

Thank you to this little girl and her family for growing their own fruit and vegetables and bringing them into school for the children to taste!

On Tuesdays we have dance with Courtney! We put some funky music on and learn some new dance routines! Look at our cool dance moves :)

We made some crazy self-portraits using magazines! We had so much fun making these, we could not stop laughing!

Self-portraits :)

In Year One we love maths! We have been working on counting, reading, writing and ordering numbers to 20.

We have been exploring the human life cycle. We looked at baby and toddler photographs of ourselves and wrote about things we did during that time.

We read the book 'Here We Are' and created handprint Earths for people who mean the world to us!

In Year One this term we are learning all about ourselves :)
