Year 1 1960’s topic

This half term we have learn about the 1960’s. We completed a class time-line and the children were able to ask some grandparents about what life was like in the 1960’s. The children enjoyed looking at and comparing old photographs! The children learnt about Neil Armstrong and the moon landings. They also enjoyed lots of craft activities, including creating Andy Warhol style art and making 1960’s clothes using’ Batik.’ The designs were really bright!

Farm to Fork!

Last week Year 1 visited Tesco to learn more about where their food comes from.  They tasted different breads, cheese and fruit and even got to go behind the scenes of the shop into the warehouse!

The children had a wonderful day and were presented with a special goody bag to share with their family. 

Donna and Lorraine, the Farm to Fork organisers, said what a lovely group of children our year 1s are and what a pleasure they were to have in the store.

We are looking forward to our next trip after Easter…

Family Maths Morning

Family Maths morning in Year 1.

We looked at the combinations of sports kit that we could make with three different style t-shirts and three different style shorts.

The children had lots of fun creating the different kits and then sorting them to show how many different combinations had been made.
