Moon Buggies

The children fully immersed themselves in our Space topic by bringing in their own resources to make a moon buggy.  We had a wonderful creative morning using our design and technology skills and were very proud of our achievements.


Space Workshop

We have been learning all about space and the Apollo missions this half term. One of our highlights was the Space Workshop, where we acted out the moon landings and  learnt lots of fun space facts.


In Geography we have been learning about maps and have been for a walk to the postbox to post our maps to the Jolly Postman.  

In Art we looked at pictures made by Andy Goldsworthy using natural objects. Then we used natural objects we could find in the school grounds to make some pictures of our own.

As part of our work on Autumn, we talked about where food comes from and made apple cakes using apples from the courtyard.

We planted bulbs in the school grounds and look forward to seeing the flowers in the Spring.

The children have been busy practising their programming skills in Year 1. They thoroughly enjoyed using the beebots and practised following simple algorithms and creating their own. The children learnt about the term ‘debugging’ and how to re-program their beebot when it went wrong. 


Year 1 enjoyed becoming mini scientists when they went on a walk of our beautiful grounds to search for evidence of Autumn. They found pine cones, blackberries, little acorns growing in the trees and lots of crunchy leaves!
