Year 1

Year 1 had a fantastic day full of sharing, kindness and creativity to celebrate this momentous occasion. It was super to have the whole school able to take part in it together and the homemade hats were so imaginative. What an amazing day we will remember it forever!

A wedding day

Year 1 had a brilliant day celebrating Spring with a May Day inspired festival.

They made flower crowns just like the garlands used traditionally and explored the forest using natural resources to make the Green Man.

Afterwards, they made jam sandwiches which they really enjoyed as they could follow the instructions.

In the afternoon, we had a May Day procession showcasing our crowns and Ms Sharratt picked out our May Queen and Green Man to lead the parade.

To finish off, we had a go at doing our own maypole dance. The children loved this as we had watched lots of videos about it throughout the day.

Spring Reward Day!


Another busy term filled with learning and fun. The children have achieved so much this term including handwriting fit for the queen, writing a set of instructions and completing their first set of reading and maths booklets with no peeking or copying! Well done everyone. To celebrate, we had a fantastic show in the hall of Treasure Island and even had a visit from the Easter bunny. The children made their own Easter boxes to collect any eggs from the hunt. So much fun!

The children had a great time on our castles day! They built castles out of blocks, learnt to sew and did a Tudor dance.

There was even a  very special visitor who attended their medieval feast!

Year 1 had a great day celebrating World Book Day today. We shared bed time stories in our pyjamas, enjoyed hot chocolate and made book buddies to keep our pages while we read.

Time Detectives

The children have worked so hard this term on their topic of Time Detectives. They have learnt all about the past and events which happened long ago. We spent 3 weeks learning about the Great Fire of London and Samuel Pepys. As you can see, the children know lots of facts. We are just beginning to learn about the moon landing. Some of the children already knew lots of information about the moon before we got started! Hope you enjoy seeing some the children's work.

Our Y1 Reward Day!

Year 1 had an amazing time celebrating our reward day. I think you can tell by their faces how magical Matthew the magician really was! They deserved a great treat after a term of hard work and lots of learning!

Fruit tasting!

Cup phones! Investigating sound.

Exploring the colour wheel

Special delivery!

Year 1 completed a very exciting project. Last week each child wrote a card to share their thanks at harvest time. The front of the card showed their own 'leaf' acrostic poem and inside they wrote a message.

They even had a go at writing their own addresses and putting a stamp on their envelope.

On Friday we took a walk around town to post our letters at the post box. We also had a special visit from a local post lady who talked to the children all about delivering post.

The children had a go at independently writing their predictions for our new book Smelly Louie.

Autumn word collecting

We went outside to find Autumn words. We used phonics to help us write words.

Church visit

The children visited the church of St Peter and St Paul in Chatteris to learn all about harvest. We were able to write and draw about things we were thankful for like our family, homes and food.

We spent the afternoon building rafts for Max. We collected sticks, taped the together, made a sail and then checked that they float.

Wild Things!

The children created their own wild things based on our story Where the Wild Things Are.

The children had lots of fun sharing things from home that helped us to learn lots about them.

Welcome to Year 1

We can't wait to see you all back in school. We are looking forward to getting to know you all and we are all excited and ready to enjoy the year ahead.
