Phonics Morning

We welcomed lots of parents into Year 1. We wanted to show off our phonics skills! We really enjoyed learning alongside our grown ups, teaching them how we learn phonics and how much fun we have doing it. We cannot wait to invite them back again soon.

Environmental Art 

Year 1 collected lots of different materials that we could find outside. We then worked with a partner to create a dinosaur footprint. We thought really carefully about the different materials that we could use to make the prints look as realistic as possible. 

Christmas Performance 2021

The children have enjoyed practicing and performing the Christmas performahttps://www.springgrovejin.co.uk/children-zone/class-pages/year-2nce. They did an amazing job. We are very proud. We hope you enjoy watching. 

We posted you a letter...

By now you will have received a letter, hand written by a member of our class, hand delivered by the Royal Mail. We were able to see the process that happens when we post a letter, from deciding who the letter is to and what we are going to write, learning how to write a letter, to finding out our address, putting a stamp on an envelope, walking to the post box and finally it being delivered at our door. 

How the Seasons are changing... 

In Year 1 we are observing the changes of seasons. Each season Year 1 are going to visit the same area in our Local Park. We will observe how this area changes throughout the year. 


We have been exploring onomatopoeia, a word that sounds like the thing or action it is describing. We have used these words to create some amazing writing about fireworks. 
We also had lots of fun creating our very own 'food sparklers' and enjoying a firework display.
