Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome to our Year 1 page. Here you will find important information about our Class routines, curriculum and general information. We will also keep you updated about the amazing activities we have been getting up to at school. Please scroll down to keep up to date with our class blog.

Teacher – Mr Beeson

Support – Mrs Elliott


After a very busy week, Year 1 can’t wait for the weekend! In English, we have been learning about verbs and using imperative (bossy) verbs to boss our friends around. Mr Beeson is still the bossiest but we are catching up!

In Maths, we have started our work on addition. We know that the number gets bigger when we add and we can also swap our numbers around but we still get the same answer! We have used a part-whole model and it is far too easy!

In history, we have continued to look at changes within living memory. We have named old toys as well as compared old and new toys. In art, we have finished our self portraits and Vincent Van Gogh better watch out!

Well done to Robbie for winning the head teachers award for his amazing maths work this week. Congratulations to Catarina for winning the core value award.

We worked as a group in RE to match parts of the eightfold path!
Some of our amazing self-portraits


Year 1 have had a very successful week. We have written amazing writing about Where the Wild Things Are and Mr Beeson is so proud of us! We can’t wait for our grown ups to see it.

In maths, we have worked on using ordinal numbers as well as number lines. It has been tricky but we have worked extremely hard and now it is too easy!

In Science, we are continuing our work on the senses. We have investigated taste and smell and now we have investigated hearing. It is amazing how we all listened to the same sound but thought it was something different. We have started our history work this week ready for our visit to Beamish museum. We have learnt some new words such as past and present as well as used timelines to sequence events.

Well done to Jake Brough for winning the head teachers award for his amazing attitude towards school and to Maddison Stott for winning the core value award because she is such a supportive friend!


After a busy few weeks, we have started to settle into being in Year 1! We have enjoyed exploring our new classroom and around the school and we like being part of big school!

In English, we have continued our work on adjectives and have linked them to characters from our book Where the Wild Things are, We have also improved our adjectives because we are far too clever to use big/small – we like to use enormous and tiny!

In maths We have been looking at comparing numbers by using the terms, more than, less than and equals as well as using the crocodiles mouth <>= We know the crocodile likes to eat the bigger number because he is greedy.

In our afternoon lessons, we have been learning about our local area, buddhism and the human body. We now know that we have 5 senses and we are going to investigate them in our next science lesson.

Well done to Jack for winning the head teachers award for his amazing maths and too Finn for winning our core value award.
