Year 1 Work

SPRING 1 - A Royal Ball!

The children in Year 1 were delighted to receive an invitation from Prince Charming. It was an invite to his royal ball, held in his grand palace in ‘Once Upon a Town’. The children put on their finest outfits for the occasion, transforming into their chosen traditional tale character. The special event began at 1:30pm with an opportunity to meet with other characters who had also been invited, and then the graceful ballroom dancing began!


In the middle of the dancing, the doors burst open with an announcement of the arrival of a beautiful girl dressed in a long shimmering dress. All of the guest watched excitedly as Prince Charming noticed the beautiful lady and asked her to dance with him. They danced gracefully together but as the clock struck midnight, the mysterious girl suddenly fled the ball and disappeared into the darkness, leaving behind a sparkly glass slipper.


As Prince Charming held up the glass slipper he proclaimed “I shall marry the girl whom this slipper fits!” As the Prince left the ball in a hurry, the guests were left wondering if he would ever see his future bride again!



AUTUMN 2 - Our Year 1 Children Sparkle & Shine!


Our sparkle and shine journey began with an exciting visit to The Astronomy Roadshow. We loved exploring all things related to space and we even got to see some amazing rocks from the moon! The really exciting bit came when we got to see the different star constellations. Looking at the night sky and seeing the stars and planets was amazing! We had so much new learning to talk about back in our classes.

Very quickly, time was ticking towards Christmas fun! With Nativity rehearsals and lots of art and craft activities going on we were all very busy… but we still managed to find time to welcome Father Christmas to our assembly and then enjoy a fabulous Year 1 party!



AUTUMN 1 - A Superhero Adventure!

The children in Year 1 were amazed to find that Mr Incredible needed their help this half-term. When Dash and Violet found themselves in a spot of bother, our Year 1 children were only too happy to rescue them using their superhero powers and utility belt gadgets!

After all of this excitement, we took a look at a famous heroine from history…Grace Darling! The children thought that she was so brave, going out in a little rowing boat into a huge storm to save survivors from a sinking ship. The children used drama to act this out and could really reflect on the different feelings she may have had while she was sat in the frightening storm!
