The foot bone is connected to the…

Our topic in the first term was ‘ The Haunted Who’. We spent the first term looking at our body. We have looked at all the different parts of our body and we labelled them.

How are you feeling?

In PSHE we have been talking about feelings and emotions. We have discussed how we can tell how people are maybe feeling from the expressions on their faces and things we might need to do if people are feeling like this.

Can you guess how these children were feeling?

Senses hunt

Linking to our Science lessons on senses, we decided to write our own senses poems in Literacy. The children walked around the school looking out for different things that they could see, hear, touch, smell and taste.

The squeaking door. The green carpet. The crunchy apples. The smooth tables.


We visited Eureka to celebrate the end of our topic. The children explored the different areas and had lots of fun doing so!

The sound of music

As part of our ‘All about me’ topic, we spent the afternoon trying to make different sounds with our body.We had tapping, clapping, whistling, clicking, stomping and humming. The children made some fantastic pieces of music which they then shared with the rest of the class.

How many ways?

We had an investigation week in maths where we worked with our friends to see how many ways we could make the same number. We had lots of fun using all the different resources we had and exploring all the different ways.

Rainbow challenges – part 1

In Year 1, as well as starting do a little more work in our books we still have the rainbow challenges set up around the classroom for children to access throughout the day. Here are just a few of the things we had set up last half term.

DIY X-ray

We created these brilliant x- ray style pictures as part of our topic.

We have been looking at the different bones in our body and the names for these bones so we thought this art work would fit in brilliantly.

What a fantastic job the children did!


Year 1 had a very scary visitor this week! A t-rex somehow managed to break into the classroom and cause havoc! He left his footprints which we followed. We found lots of different things that the dinosaur had left such as a big tooth, some sparkly scales, claw marks, his tail… and even some smelly orange poo! The children had loads of fun and exploring which resulted in some fantastic writing from them all!


Earlier in the week, our scary visitor left us an egg. However, when we found it, it had already hatched and there was a baby dinosaur on the loose!

Today we created WANTED posters for the dinosaur. We then decided to make clay models of our dinosaurs.
