Welcome back! We hope you had a good Easter holiday!
This half term we are learning about Spring and farms, particularly where our food comes from!
This week we will be following written instructions to plant a seed and over the coming weeks we will be watching the seed grow!
Challenge: When eating your tea can you explain where the food has come from?
This week have been retelling the story of Billy’s Bucket. We worked in groups to rehearse and we pretended we were on CBeebies Bedtime Stories! We focused on using clear voices, expression, actions, props and working well as a team. We are hoping to share our story videos with the children in Reception and Nursery. Take a look at one of our videos below, we hope you enjoy listening to our story. Please leave a comment to tell us what the children in this group did well!

Last week went to ‘The Deep’ in Hull; it was a fantastic day and we learnt so much!
We had a workshop where we learnt about the Artic and Antarctic and which animals live there! We also learnt about endangered animals and how different sea animals live in different temperature oceans.
We then explored The Deep, we saw lots of animals including a swordfish, sharks, jellyfish, clown fish and the very cheeky penguins. We were also very fortunate to watch the divers feeding the fish, they even waved at us through the glass!
Have a look at our photos and comment below.

On Monday we are visiting The Deep in Hull. We will leave school at 9am prompt, so make sure you arrive to school on time, for 8:45am. You must wear your school uniform. Please provide a packed lunch with a drink. We will be returning to school at the later time of 4:30pm. Please ensure there is somebody at school to pick your child up for that time. If you have not yet paid the £10, it needs to be handed in by Monday morning. After the trip we will upload lots of photos of our exciting day!
The Year 1 Team.
Today we learnt all about the different jobs within our school and our local area. We wrote questions (using question marks!) for key members of staff, and even got the chance to interview them in the afternoon. We used role play to experience different job roles and take on responsibilities. We discussed how employers hire new members of staff and then used ‘because’ to give reasons for why we would be a good person to employ for different job roles. We have had a great day learning about the different jobs that will be available to us in the future – we hope you enjoy our photos!
Please leave a comment to explain what you would like to be when you grow up, use ‘because’ to give reasons.

This half term we are learning about ‘Under the Sea’. We will be writing our own fact sheets on our chosen sea creature after researching using the Ipads and reading fact sheets. We will also be creating our own sea aquarium, devising our own sea dance in P.E and going to The Deep in Hull!
Do you know any animals that live in the sea? If you do, comment below!
Also, can you remember the beginning of the sea dance to this song? Get practising at home!

On Wednesday we had a WOW day to introduce our topic of Space.
We had so much fun as we made our very own rockets with Mrs Thomas and we learnt why a rocket needs a parachute! We then tested our rockets in the school hall and we practised how far we could throw them and tested whether our parachutes worked!
We also made our own aliens out of modelling clay. Some aliens had 4 heads, 3 eyes and one round body. Other aliens were very tall and had no arms and 6 eyes! They were all different and equally brilliant.
We were also very fortunate as we had a visitor from an astronaut, Mr Bee. He told us all about his adventures in Space and how he had landed his rocket in Bowling Park!! He explained how we put on his suit, how he needed to be in quarantine before a mission and explained all about Space and how it feels with there being no gravity!
Have a look at some of our pictures and comment below if you can remember any facts from Mr Bee.
