Year 1

Welcome to Year One Page

After visiting the Crown Jewels we learned more about the crown that was made for Prince Charles in 1969 and the symbols included. We thought about symbols that would represent us and designed our own crowns before making them. 

Some photos from our brilliant trip to the Tower of London today plus some examples of our quick sketches of the landmarks we could see.

After looking at examples of Kente cloth from Ghana we were inspired to make these paper weavings. 

We learned about hot and cold colours and then applied our learning to make these Hot Dogs and Cool Cats. 

Some pictures from our Pentecost party. We celebrated the birthday of the church as well as all the birthdays we had missed in Lockdown. 

We have enjoyed watching our tadpoles change into froglets but today we said goodbye because it was time for them to return to the pond.

In Computing today we used the four way symmetry tool and a tiling tool to make William Morris inspired wallpaper designs. 

So impressed with these William Morris inspired prints. The children followed the instructions really well and did a fantastic job!

We have been learning about The Owl and the Pussycat in our English lessons. We have made illustrations for our own version of the poem. 

The Flower Fairies have been helping us to identify the plants growing in our school garden as part of our Science work. Look at our amazing observational drawings. Can you name the flowers?

We made this display about this term’s value of “Openness”.

Fantastic entrants in our Easter Bonnet and Decorated Egg competition. Congratulations to everyone especially our Year 1 winners Ellen, Edith and Ernest!
What a fabulous collection of wax-resist watercolour handwriting pattern Easter eggs!
And look who’s hatched out...!
Here are our beautiful fingerprint Spring flower Mothers Day cards, before the ladybirds landed!
We each coloured a piece of this puzzle and when we put it together it had a special message for us...
Our Sleeping Beauty story map. Can you use it to tell the story?

More artwork inspired by Yinka Shonibare.

Which is his and which is Year 1’s?!

This artwork was inspired by a video on the Tate Kids website where the artist Harold Offeh showed us how to make prints of body parts using something greasy like Vaseline or hand cream and a powder like flour. These creative children tried spices and glitter too!

As part of our Topic work about Famous People we learned about the artist Yinka Shonibare. We learned that he sometimes uses objects to tell stories and start conversations. We were inspired to make Self Portraits using objects.

How well do you know your friends? Can you tell whose is whose?

These pictures are also inspired by the work of Yinka Shonibare. We have made abstract collages of our families by choosing patterns and shapes that we felt best represented them. 
Fantastic fantasy landscapes for our Wild Things to live in. Some of these were made at school and some by children following at home through our live online lessons.
