Year One trip to The Museum of Liverpool

We had a fantastic time on our trip to the museum. We learnt how we can identify if a toy is old or new, then we even got to play with them! We really enjoyed Little Liverpool and learning about our city. For more photos, please visit the SeeSaw App!

Teddy the puppy came to visit year one. We learnt about Teddy's day, how to care for Teddy, what he likes and doesn't like and we described him. We will be creating a non-fiction pop-up book all about Teddy!

Curriculum Information Map

Below is the curriculum information map for our summer term...

Kandinsky Khaos

This term we have been studying the artist Wassily Kandinsky! We have been researching him and finding out lots of interesting facts. We have then been practicing our skills and experimenting with shapes and colours. The photographs below are of our final piece we created. We used a long sheet of fabric creating Kandinsky styles all over. We then painted it with fabric paint being sure to stay with the style of Kandinsky. We will hang our Kandinsky fabric on the KS1 corridor, so be sure to take a look when you're visiting our school. 

Year One Visit to their Local Green Space

We visited our local green space by using our geography skills by following a map. We observed the weather and added this to our weather journals. We then became scientists and used our senses to describe the environment. Then we went on a mini-beast hunt and recorded our findings. Finally we had a play in the park!

Year One trip to Garston Library

Year One took a trip to their local library. We were on the hunt for non-fiction books and found lots! We then browsed the library and chose a book we like to check out. We each have a library card now and can check books in and out of the library as we wish. 

World Book Day 2019

Year Ones 18th Century Feast

Year One had a fantastic day celebrating the end of their history topic about food and fashion from the 18th century! We enjoyed a banquet filled with food the rich people would have eaten in the 18th century whilst dressed either poor or rich clothes. We also learnt some dancing from the 18th century. Thank you to all parents for bringing such wonderful food in for us to share! Enjoy our photos...

Year One Trip to Gorse Hill Nature Reserve 

Our summer trip to Gorse Hill Nature Reserve was fantastic! We explored different habitats and went pond dipping. We found water hog louse, water boatman, an emperor dragonfly, three baby newts and a mayfly nymph. We also looked at the characteristics of different trees and plants. We recycled our rubbish and identified the different creatures we found. We will definitely be visiting again!
