Year 1 are learning about the artist Anne Kelly and how a range of materials can be used to create art.  We explored methods of manipulating fabric by poking, pulling, threading and weaving. Retha-Mari kindly helped us to weave and gave us her weaving frames.

Year 1 Science Week

March 16, 2024

Science week – Year 1 enjoyed The story of Mary Anning.

During science week Year 1 enjoyed a workshop on Mary Anning.  We have been learning about Mary Anning the pioneering paleontologist and fossil collector and this workshop helped consolidate our learning. 

Our visiting scientist, Dr Mandy Hartley, told us how and where fossils were formed.  She invited us to talk about the fossils we found and where we found them.  Lots of children found fossils on the beaches of North Norfolk.   Dr Hartley demonstrated how a fossil is formed by using clay to imprint into and plaster of Paris to create a cast.  Afterwards we went fossil hunting on a sample beach and we discovered a huge ichthyosaurus fossil.  We also learnt how Mary Anning’s finds influenced Charles Darwin’s ‘Theory of Evolution’.

Finally, we joined Dr Hartley and went on an immersive drama adventure to retell the story of Mary Anning.  Through acting, listening, dressing up and singing we revised what happened from the time Mary was struck by lightning, how she taught herself and how she found amazing fossils.  We loved learning more about Mary’s friend Miss Philpott!

It was an engaging workshop and was very much enjoyed by the children. 

Thank you Dr Hartley for bringing our learning to life.  Also, thank you to our Friends Committee for funding the workshop.

World Book Day in Year 1

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating World Book Day.  The children listened to poems, a reading of Monkey Puzzle in two languages and our two spine books.  

Each child spoke about their favourite character and the books they choose to read.  Some children shared their own books with the class.  The children also wrote about their character.  We finished our day with a trip to the hall for the book sale.

Year 1 – Gymnastics

This term we worked hard to explore gymnastic movements and balances.  We learnt, developed, and applied our shapes knowledge in our floor work lessons.  Today we used all our new skills on the low apparatus and the wall bar.  Everyone practised our gymnastics skills and some children challenged themselves and created a routine.

Year 1 – Children’s Mental Health Week

February 13, 2024

Our activities.

  1. The Whisper Game.

Are we good listeners?  We started the game by saying the sentence “I love chicken pie with mushroom sauce” and we finished with the phrase “chicken sauce”.  Afterwards we talked about the importance of listening and how to listen carefully.

  • Board games.

We played games and celebrated the success of our friends.

  • Worry dolls.

We listened to stories about worries.  Our favourite is The Huge Bag of Worries by Virginia Ironside and we read it regularly.  Mrs Bird helped us to make worry dolls.   It was difficult but we persevered.  Some children added hats and dresses to their worry dolls.
