Year 1 2019-2020

Our new RE topic is called Change. We will be thinking about how we have changed since we were babies and then at how Lent is a time for change. We will learn about some important days: Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. 

RE Innovate


For our RE innovate, we made some videos of what happened at The Last Supper to help teach reception class all about Jesus' very special last meal with his disciples. You can see them by clicking here: 

Happy World Book Day from Year 1

Our new RE topic is called Meals. We will be learning all about a very special meal called The Last Supper. What special meals have you had before? 
Our new RE topic is all about Special People. We will be answering the big question, 'What makes a person special?' 

Art Week

For our art week activity, we looked at Sonia Delaunay, who was a French artist. We found out about the work she did with her husband, which was usually based on shapes. We looked at the image called Rhythm 1934 and made our own art based on this. We liked the bright colours because they made us feel happy.  



We went to church and Father Jonathan performed a Baptism on our baby Bobby. Philip and Layla were the parents and Freya, Charlotte K, Oliver and Riley-Ray were the Godparents. We saw Father use all the signs and symbols that we have learnt about like: holy water, oil of chrism and the white garment. He also gave baby Bobby a Baptismal Candle. 

Our class charity for 2019-2020

We heard some fantastic class charity presentations on Thursday afternoon but the children voted in favour of Hugo's charity, Steps.


Steps is a national charity who work to support those affected by childhood lower limb conditions. Hugo was born with a clubfoot and he confidently told us about this and showed the class pictures of the different stages of him getting better. The charity helped to support Hugo and his family during that time.
