In Year 1 we have 30 wonderful boys and girls. We work hard, have fun, learn lots and look after each other every day. Our teachers are Miss Celli and Miss Roberts.
Our classroom is very exciting and colourful. We have a story corner, Gruffalo roleplay area, a Winnie the Witch area for spelling, an interactive maths area, a making area, a malleable area, computers and we still manage to fit in all 30 children and the adults!

As part of measuring in cubes, we also measured our feet.
This was to help us find who had the smallest feet and the biggest feet in class.
In science, we have been looking at different parts of the body and how it connects with our senses.
We were trying to guess what each food item was using our taste senses.
Then we had to write it down and draw pictures of what we thought it was.
We also used our nose to smell what was in the containers.
In english, we used the Autumn leaves to help us write a poem.
We came up with lots of adjectives to describe the leaves.
In maths, we have been learning about symmetry.

In class we have been estimating and comparing things with a metre stick.
We measured things shorter than a metre and longer than a metre.
The year 5's came to visit us for our buddy system and read to us.
They were all really nice.
It's mystery week in school and someone has taken Winnie the Witch. We are being forensic scientist and trying to find out who it was.

We also looked at finger prints and the different types there are.
In art we are looking at the work of Vincent Van Gogh.
We are recreating our own sunflower art work.
It's Winnie's birthday and we helped prepare food for her party.
We helped by cutting sandwiches into quarters.
And fruit into halves and quarters.
