Year 1 - Mrs Read and Miss Lowe

Spring 1st half term - 2017

Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Project - Moon Zoom!

Crash! What's that on the school field? Let's go outside and take a look. Stand back everyone - it looks like a UFO has crash landed!

Year 1 pupils will investigate who might have landed the craft. They will make a 'Welcome to Earth' box for an alien explorer explaining what life is like on our planet. They will design and make their own space craft and plan and write about their own journey into space.

They will also learn about the planets and our solar system

Let's hope Year 1 are ready for blast off!

Hold tight... 5-4-3-2-1.....LIFT OFF!

 Autumn 2nd half term - 2016

Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Project - Memory Box

Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl?

This half term Year 1 pupils will be looking back at family photos of special occasions - perhaps snapshots of holidays , birthdays, weddings or christenings. They will learn how to write a diary of days gone by, and find out about the days before they were born; its called history and its all about the past.

Year 1 pupils will then make a special box; a memory box to keep special things so that in years to come they can revisit them and remember how they looked and what they did when they were young.

Memories are special....Let's make some more!


 Autumn 1st half term - 2016

Cornerstones Imaginative Learning Project - Bright Lights, Big City

What do you know about England's capital city? Let's find out all about London, including its history, transport and famous landmarks.

Year 1 pupils will step back in time and discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. Where did it start? How did it end? Create a model of the bakery on Pudding Lane ... then burn it to the ground to recreate the Great Fire. Stand well back and watch how the flames. spread. London's burning! London's burning! Fire, fire! Fire, fire!

Hang on. there's someone new in town! Plan a tour for Marley the Meerkat (he's come all the way from Zambia, you know) making sure he takes in all the sights and sounds of London before he finally meets his family at London Zoo.

Year 1 pupils will need be ready for the brights lights of the big city as they begin their learning this term!
