Our Year 1 Classes are Puffins and Penguins.

These are our curriculum newsletters.


Finding Half

Penguins class drew on the tables today! Don’t worry though, it was just them showing us how brilliant they are at finding half. They even drew their own sharing pockets before equally halving different amounts. A great job!

Two Trips for Year 1!

Wow! What a week Year 1 has had. Not just one trip but two! They have had an amazing time exploring Alnwick Castle and were amazed at the grandeur inside and out. What was the best bit? Lots of children said it was rolling down the hill! Mrs Osborne had a try too (sorry no photographs). We have also taken part in a Hoopstarz session. Everyone tried their very best and were amazed at how their skills improved. Lots of future professional hula hoopers. Even Mr Gregory learned how to hula!


Year 1 Spuds Are Up!

The Great Potato Growing Competition 2022 has started in Year 1. Puffins and Penguins are competing to grow the most potatoes as part of their plant topic. Last year we grew more than 4000 potatoes. Do you think we can beat it this year? What do you grow at home?

Magnetic Fishing Games

As part of our science topic – materials, Year 1 have made their own magnetic fishing games. To begin we explored a range of materials to see if they were magnetic or not. We then chose from a selection of materials to design and make a magnetic game. Not only did we have fun making and playing each others’ games, we also demonstrated great problem solving skills too.
