Welcome to Year 1!
Highlight of the Week 9/5/2022: This week in Year 1 we have started our Science topic about plants. The children compared the differences and similarities between different plants and seeds. As part of the learning, the children will be keeping plant diaries to see and record how the plants grow. The class were excited to plant the peas and water them. They are now on the window sill and we will start recording on our diaries next week.
Highlight of the Week 28/3/2022: Year 1's Highlight of the week was our visit to Standalone Farm in Letchworth Garden City as part of our Geography topic 'At The Farm'. The children were very excited, and they got to see a variety of farm animals including sheep, pigs, cows, ducks, llamas, and a very large turkey. The children had lunch in the barn and explored the Woodland Trial. The children enjoyed playing in the playground which they had all to themselves before a very quiet coach journey home. A lovely day enjoyed by all the children and adults.
