Welcome to Ash Class (Year 1). Our Teacher is Miss Hilton.

Autumn 2nd Term- Julia Donaldson

We are having an author study this half term. We are learning about stories written by Julia Donaldson. So far we have learnt the stories 'Room on the broom', 'Superworm' and 'Scarecrows Wedding' in English and 'The snail and the Whale' in Geograpghy.

Geography- Snail and the Whale

We made magnetic map pictures to show Snail and Whale travelling to different continents. We have learnt facts about the first continent they have visited- Antarctica.

Art/DT- Room on the Broom!

We made some fantastic brooms from natural materials to go with the story 'Room on the Broom.'


Maths- Length

We have been exploring length. We have had great fun ordering and comparing the length of different objects.

Maths- Weighing with balance scales

We have been using our hands to explore and estimate weight of everyday objects. We have used balance scales to compare the weight of different objects and have also used balance scales to weigh objects in non-standard units. We have been using mathematical vocabulary for weight and measure.


In Literacy we have been learning about 'Superworms.' We read the story by Julia Donaldson and have been learning facts and information about worms including what they eat. We have even made our very own 'Superworm Wormery' !

PE- Crossfit with T800

This half term Year 1 have been enjoying Crossfit lessons with Ellie from T800 Crossfit. They are so much fun and she is fab!

DT- clay whales


Spring Term- Traditional Tales

DT- Houses for the 3 pigs!

In DT we designed, made and tested houses for the 3 Little Pigs. We tested them against 'The Big Bad Wolf' (hairdryers!). It was lots of fun.
