Welcome to Year 1.

Blists Hill Victorian Town

Year 1 went back in time this half term to visit Blists Hill Victorian town, in the world heritage site of Ironbridge. The children all came dressed in their Victorian outfits and stepped through the doors to be transported back to the reign of Queen Victoria. The first thing they noticed was the smell of smoke from the chimneys. We visited the bank, grocers, chemist & dentist. The children saw how clothes and shoes were made and experienced the industrial revolution. We were fascinated by all the machines that were invented, we could even name a few. We then took part in a candle dipping workshop and we all made our very own candles. After lunch we ventured further down into the town and had a look at the Victorian school and doctors. We saw a poor person’s house and were shocked that 8 people would share 2 small straw beds. We also went into a large building, but before we did we tried to guess what was inside. None of us guessed it was a ship. We loved climbing on board to see where the captain and crew would have been. Mr Postans was very impressed with how amazing we all were during our trip back in time. We also received so many fantastic comments from the members of the public too.

Year 1 Autumn 1

What a busy half term we have had in Year 1. Here are just a few pictures of what we have been up to in class.

Reverend Winter Visit

Reverend Winter came to visit us to tell us all about his role as the Vicar of Ombersley church. He told us all about the different roles he does within the church and showed us how he baptises a baby. We learnt all about the bells in the church and what they are for. Reverend Winter also brought some of his outfits that he wears and let us try them on which was very exciting. In December Reverend Winter has invited us down to the church to explore all the different parts. We will also see if we can discover the story of Christmas. Thank you Revered Winter for coming to spend the afternoon with us.

Forest School

This half term in the forest we have been looking at trees. We each claimed our own tree and were set the task of looking after it over the weeks. We also spent a lot of time searching for bugs and insects and we all seemed a little fascinated by the slugs which we found in a variety of colours. We have also been observing the changes of the seasons from the lush summer trees we started with in September to the now colour changing trees we have now. We can’t wait to see what happens to our trees over the next term into winter.

Busy first week in year 1.

What a busy start to the year we have had. We have started our new topic ‘Vile Victorians’ and learnt all about Queen Victoria. We have had a visit from Peter Rabbit who is hiding out in our classroom. We have explored our new room and showed our Moms and Dads the room. We have been in the forest, learnt our harvest song and practiced throwing at catching in PE. Keep checking back over the year to see what else we get up to.
