What an amazing first week in Year One!

We have had a very busy first week back to school and have settled into Year One so well. We have enjoyed some great transition activities including painting ‘all about me’ rainbows, collaging some monster phonics characters and number games using chalk. We read some stories about worry monsters and created our own worry monsters from paper-mache that we can use to give our worries away anytime we have them. We also learnt our year one song – ‘hakuna matata – it means no worries’ and sang some other Warren Park songs we know and love from Reception.


We have begun our first computing unit and this term its all about bee-bots! We began our first session with designing and creating a world for the Bee-Bot on a grid. We used our English text driver as our ‘theme’ and as a class verbally discussed ideas of what we could draw, related to the ‘Cave Baby’ story. We then worked in groups to design the world.

In our second session we explored what the Bee-bots could do in small groups. We were investigating how to use the buttons on the Bee-bots and what the symbols might mean.


To launch our RE unit ‘special clothes’ we had the opportunity of coming into school dressed in our own special clothes. We discussed why our clothes are special to us, how they make us feel and when and where we might wear our special clothes. We had some fantastic responses and enjoyed seeing photos of our teachers in different special clothes including Miss Bentley on a horse in her horse-riding gear and Mrs Nunn brought in her sparkly wedding dress to show us.
