Number bonds addition and subtraction fact videos

We used the ipads to create a step by step guide on how to flip the addition of a number fact and then turn it into the inverse of a subtraction. The children really enjoyed this activity and were very confident when using the ipads. We used the whiteboards to model the method to help explain on the video. Don't forget to keep practicing at home as the addition and subtraction facts up to 20 really help in other areas of more complex addition and subtraction!


After lots of hard work and practice the children finally got the opportunity to share the Nativity story with their friends and family. What a great week of performances it was. Thank you to everybody who came to share the story with us. Well done to Year 1 for their fantastic singing all the way through! A special mention to Rozalia and Rosie for stepping in last ,minute to be the shepherds in the evening performance - you were great!

Materials investigation

We have been looking at investigating different materials and describing their properties. We sorted and classified the materials and discussed how they felt and what objects they could make.

Leeds city Football Academy

Billy from the football academy came in and did a great football session, all the children were very enthusiastic and got so much from the session!

Year 1 autumn timetable

here is what we get up to day to day.

Roald Dahl day

What an amazing day we had in year 1, we made up gobblefunk language just like Roald Dahl! The children also had a go at making their very own giant peach using oil pastels and blending them together. Take a look at some of the fantastic costumes, do you recognise any of the characters?

Autumn 1 curriculum overview

Take a look at what we will be doing in this first part of the autumn term.

Lego building and counting.

In The construction and small world area one of the tasks some of the children undertook was to build their house - but with a twist. Their job was to count and compare the different colour bricks that they used. They enjoyed the activity and were using words like most, fewer, least. To check if we were right we then counted the different colours to make sure. We found out that Yellow was the brick that was used the most! Who knew!

Hello and welcome to the Year 1 page!

Here is just a few key bits of information for you. Mr Parker and Mrs Dawson work in our class. On a Friday morning Mrs Milner teaches us. We have PE on a Wednesday and a Thursday morning, please keep your kit in school for those days. We send spellings, homework and reading books home every Thursday to be returned/ completed for the following Thursday. 

We will be sending Bug club and mathletics logins home again, it would be great if you could spend even 5 minutes a week on these programs. They will really help your child progress and mirror what we are learning in class. 

Please check this page and the schools twitter page for regular updates about what we get up to in Year 1!

Thank you 

Mr Parker.
