Yr 1 2018-19


We had lot of fun in Easter week, the Friends organised a lovely egg hunt for us which was lots of fun. We learnt all about the Easter story and made stained glass windows. We performed in church after we had walked down in our Easter bonnets which looked fantastic. Well done Year 1 and have a lovely Easter break.

Church Art

We went to church this week to practice our Easter service. After the rehearsal we stayed at church to have a go at sketching the church tower. Our skills have improved over the year and we produced some lovely pieces of work.

Wild Things Day

This term our topic has been adventure and we have been looking at the book “Where The Wild Things Are”. We decided to have a Wild Things Day in the forest and Mrs Moore kindly planned it all for us. We started the day retelling the story and then got into groups to build the story. It was so much fun. We then went around exploring each other’s zones before we had lots and lots of fun in the mud (Happened to be the wettest day of the month) We made mud pies and even made a mud slide, We got very very muddy but had an awesome time.

Book Week

This year’s book week was all based on Poetry. Mrs Jordan found us a lovely poem all about tails. We got to know the poem very well and added actions and instruments to make it even more exciting. We were so happy we could perform this to our parents. During book week our familes came in to share a story with us and we got to wear our PJs for the day.

New Outdoor Garden

We love our fantastic new year 1 only garden. We have been doing lots of exploring and learning outside and we love it.

Forest fun

We spend lots of time outside and in the forest. On our first week back we went out to look for signs of spring and had a bug hunt. We discovered lots more bugs come out in spring compared to winter.

Yr1 Gym

We have had a fantastic half term doing Gymnastics with Mrs Moore. We learnt different rolls, movements and balances.

Gymnastics Festival

Twelve Year 1 children had a fantastic afternoon of Gymnastics at Sytchampton Primary school, with other Year 1 children from the Droitwich pyramid.

The children performed balances on the mats and on the apparatus and found different ways to travel to a table top and leave with a jump and a roll.

Well done to all the Year 1 children who took part.

I want to be…

We all dressed up as what we want to be when we grow up. There are a few footballers, DJ’s, Rockstars and teachers. Can you work out what everyone is dressed as?

Forest School

We love spending time in the forest and get up to lots of muddy fun. This term we have been looking at trees and have made our own tree faces we hope you like them.


This term we have been cooking with Mrs Hills. We have been making Adventure Rocks and have really enjoyed measuring and mixing the ingredients together to make the rocks. We watch them bake till golden brown. We are also very good at tidying and washing up, but don’t tell our Moms and Dads that.
