Claude Monet

In our topic lessons, we have been looking at the artist Claude Monet. We looked at his painting ‘Apple Trees in Blossom’ and painted our own trees in his style. We used cotton buds to create the same textured effect.

Which materials are waterproof ?

In science this week, the children carried out an experiment to see which materials are waterproof.  We discussed how to make sure that we conducted a fair test and they then poured water on a selection of materials that included a piece of plastic, fabric, foil and a mystery material.  Ask your child what they found out !

Fire Engine…. Beep, Beep!

We were so lucky this week, a real fire engine came to our school. The fire fighters showered us all the different equipment they use to fight fires! We got to look inside the engine and we saw a big cutter that firefighters have to use if someone is stuck inside a car!



Have you hurdle this?

We hope your children have been telling you about the exciting visit we had from international hurdler Gianni Frankis.  We had an energetic morning taking part in lots of various exercises and hearing about Gianni’s athletic career. It was lots of fun and very inspiring!

I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house down !....if I can

In science this week, the children have been listening to the story of the Three Little Pigs and discussing which material was best to build a house.  In groups, the children worked together to make houses using either art straws, clay, lolly sticks, plasticine, foil and cardboard.  What do you think was the strongest material ?...Come and find out at our class assembly on Thursday !


In English this week, the children have been learning about different traditional tales and fairy tales.  They have been exploring different versions of ‘Snow White’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’.  The children had to retell the and sequence events that happen in the stories.

Ball Skills in PE

In P.E. this week, the children have been learning about different ball skills such as batting the ball to one another using their hands, throwing the ball to one another and dribbling the ball with their feet.  They have practised these skills by playing various games which they have really enjoyed.


We have been working extra hard in our Math lessons. This week we have been counting using different objects. We used the beads and strings to represent a given number. We then had to find one more and one less of that number. We even started using different mathematical vocabulary like counting back, before and less than.

Sorting Materials

In Year 1, we have looked at lots of objects made out of different materials and began sorting them into different groups; glass, wood, plastic and metal.  The children were fantastic at sorting the objects by their materials but they were then set a challenge….

In which groups should you place:

  • A glass jar with a metal lid
  • A frying pan made of metal and plastic

What do you think ?


The children met Hocus and Lotus, the dinocrocs who will be introducing them to French with Madame Farrington, through stories, songs and a DVD. They learnt how to say hello and to count to 10 in French.
