Year 1 – Miss Bennett

Welcome to Year 1

Our Class Work



On Friday 6th December Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 went to see Santa. Everyone received an early Christmas present.



As a school we want to make sure we are being active. In Year 1 we LOVE yoga! It is fantastic for our body, a great form of exercise and a nice way to relax.


Careers day

On our school Careers Day we were lucky enough to be visited by a team of fire fighters. We even went in their fire truck. It was amazing!



In Autumn 1 we loved learning about different animal groups and what they ate. We looked at animals that were carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Our five animal groups were amphibians, birds, reptiles, fish and mammals.



In art we have been using a range of recycled materials to design and make a sculpture. We were inspired by the work of Michelle Reader. As a class we know how important it is to recycle and look after our environment.


Relax Kids

In Autumn 1 it was our turn for relax kids. We all loved the different activities especially when we were able to bring our pillows and blankets in.


Shildon Railway Museum

Year 1 had an amazing trip this term linking to our history topic. We have been learning about George Stephenson and his impact on our local area, the country and his global impact. We had a wonderful day and saw some amazing things.



Over the course of this term we have had some fantastic PE sessions both inside and outside.
