Together we grow in God’s love

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!


Welcome to the Year 1 class pages. This is where we will keep you up to date on what's happening in Year 1. 


Florence Nightingale Day

Year One had a fantastic day learning all about Florence Nightingale. In the morning they made medals, candle holders, sashes, cards, pill boxes, diaries and even had a job interview with Miss Nightingale herself! In the afternoon children role-played being nurses and tended to their injured soldiers!

Kilim weaving

To finish our topic on Homes around the World, we found out that some Berbers in Tunisia live in underground houses. The women weave mats called Kilims which they sell or use to decorate their homes. The children enjoyed weaving their own Kilims using card and we think you’ll agree they look great! 

World Book Day

We had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day on Thursday. Children brought in thoughtful items which represented their favourite books and we shared and talked about them in class. After break, we had a real treat when Year 4 came to our class and read our favourite books with us. Finally, we took part in a live lesson from the Literacy Trust. We listened to a reading of Dave Pigeon by the author herself and drew along with the illustrator to create our own illustration of Dave Pigeon. What a fantastic day!

Toys from the past
We borrowed some old toys from Hertford Museum to help us learn about toys from the past for our History topic. The children enjoyed learning about the toys and identifying similarities and differences between these toys and some of their favourite toys.
