Instruction Writing

In February 2019, the Year 1 children had to follow instructions to make their own green lizard.  They then went on to write their own set of instructions.  They then set their lizards free onto their poor teacher!


In January 2019, during their Maths lessons, the children were using non-standard units of measure to compare length within the classroom. The children enjoyed using a range of cubes, pencils, paper-clips and banners to measure the objects they had chosen.

In December 2018, the Year 1 children provided the choir for the KS1 Christmas play.

In December 2018, during their Art lessons, the children were learning about using the medium of paper. After reading the book ‘Owl Babies’, the children enjoyed tearing different coloured paper to create their own owl.
