The children in Year 1 have been very busy since the start of the year. Please see the different activities going on and the lovely photos of the class in action!

We have been listening to and reading lots of fairy tales and writing out own stories. One of the children’s favourite stories was ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and some classes in Year 1 decided they wanted to make their own!

We have also been learning about different materials. The children learnt about where different materials come from or how they are made and 1GN decided they wanted to make their own recycled paper.
