Year 1

This academic year (2017-2018) is an exciting time for the Key Stage 1 children and staff. We will all be working on the same topics and operating as a 5 class phase. The classes are: Year 1 – Dolphins and Seahorses Year 1 / 2 – Meerkats Year 2 – Giraffes and Lions In the Autumn term we will be finding out about “A Seaside Town”, exploring Worthing as a tourist town, past and present. The Spring term topic focuses upon fairy tales, “Once Upon a Time”, and the children will read different fairy tales and alternative versions of these familiar stories. In the Summer term we move on to “Wild About Africa” where we learn about the continent as well as the “Big 5” and their habitats. The Key Stage 1 team work closely together to match the curriculum experiences to every child’s needs, whist at the same time providing first-hand experiences and challenges. Our aim is to make the learning fun by giving it a real purpose that the children can be absorbed in.

Maths Day

We have seen some amazing maths hats in year 1 today.  The children have been busy doing a range of maths activities that included a special 'Teddy Town' game, drawing things that they could see behind, in front and alongside them, programming a car and colouring numbers.

The highlight of the day so far has been tackling an obstacle course whilst blindfolded, being guided by a friend who had to use the correct positional language to get through.

The Egg!

What an exciting start to the new school year Years 1 and 2 have had.

A mysterious egg has appeared in our classrooms.


Where did it come from?

How did it get into our classroom?

What is inside the egg?

We have shared our ideas about these questions. In Science, we have found out some of the animals that come from eggs. We have drawn pictures of what we think might be in the egg and written descriptions of the “creature”. We have also started reading a book called “The Egg” by M.P. Robertson.

Now we are waiting for the egg to hatch!!!
