Year 1 is made up of two classes, one taught by Mrs Jordan and one taught by Mr Grafton.
The wonderful 1J!
The amazing 1G!
On Friday 7th July, Year 1 went to South Milton beach to enjoy the glorious sunshine and learn more about the coast and the sea. The children took part in a variety of activities that included building sandcastles, designing beach sculptures, hunting for treasure, paddling in the sea and eating ice cream! Members of the public commented on how excellently the children behaved throughout the day and they were truly a credit to the school.
On Monday 26th June the children celebrated the anniversary of the release of the first Harry Potter book with magical themed Maths and Writing lessons!
In writing the children included a wizard or witch's broom in their fantasy story, incorporating it into their main character's journey to another land.
In maths the brooms were stolen by the wizards and witches of Slytherin! The children had to solve a challenging puzzle left by the thieves which involved matching the answers of multiplication problems to a letter which eventually spelled out where the broom had been hidden!
To finish Year One's topic on Animals the children were visited by Keira and Phoebe from Dartmoor Zoo along with some of their animal friends! The children were able to observe and touch the skulls of a zebra and a tiger and compare their teeth. They also had the opportunity to hold and stroke a Tiger Land Snail, a Bearded Dragon called Elliot and a Royal Python called Khaleesi! The children were taught about the different types of teeth that carnivores, herbivores and omnivores need in order to eat their food and had the chance to ask a variety of questions about the animal's diets.
