Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Take a look at our Year 1 topics in the 'Curriculum' section of our website.



Learning at Forest School this Week!

We have been learning how to measure weight using scales.  We have used new vocabulary such as heavier, lighter, balance, weight, scale, grams and kilo grams.  In our numeracy lesson, we practised reading measurements of weight and used scales to measure correctly.  We followed a recipe to make banana loaves.  They were absolutely delicious! 

In our science lessons we have been learning all about invertebrates and the habitats they prefer to live in.  We worked together to design and construct safe habitats for invertebrates.  Great team work, Year 1.

We celebrated the Queen's 90th birthday! We learned lots about Queen Elizabeth and her reign over our country. We also made flags and had a party to celebrate!

Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!

We recorded a special birthday message for the Queen.


We went on an Arctic Adventure today and had great fun! Come and join us.







'The toe bone's connected to the - foot bone! The foot bone's connected to the - leg bone!'


We have been reading and enjoying Funnybones! We love the characters and the fun they have in the story.  The skeletons even crept into our classrooms last week and left some bones for us to find!  We were able to measure them with rulers and tape measures.  In science we have been labelling parts of the body and thinking about the special jobs each part of the body has.
