Welcome To Year 1

Meet the Teacher letter 2019




Our Big Question is:

What makes Lichfield special?


This week we are starting to learn about position and direction. We have been practising full turns, half turns and quarter turns!





Yesterday, we celebrated Safer Internet Day. We worked together to think of ways to stay safe on our iPads, laptops and mobiles.






The children have loved learning about reptiles, mammals, birds, fish and amphibians!








The children had great fun uncovering the mystery of our new big question!



This week we have been learning about how our actions and words affect others. We had some very good ideas about how to be a good friend.



Our new Big Question is:

How has life changed since your grandparents were young?



The children have loved planning their own adventure stories. They were very imaginative and created their own flying animal to be one of the main characters!


Design and Technology

Year 1 were very resourceful and resilient in D&T this half-term. They really enjoyed designing and creating their own old-fashioned vehicles.



In History we have been exploring toys and artifacts from the past.




Our Big Question for the Autumn term is:

What makes me special?

Class Worship

All of the children did a super job with learning their lines and taking part in our worship this half-term. They enjoyed teaching the school about our Big Question.




We have been thinking about what makes a good friend and how to use our school values.



 We have been performing lots of different jumps, rolls and ways of travelling in our gymnastics lessons.





The children are  learning all about the human body in our Science lessons this term.


We are also starting to explore the season of: Autumn!

Some of the children were excited to bring in some conkers that they'd found at home.

Also, a big thank you to all parents and carers for helping the children to create their 'Chatterbags'. The children loved talking about the hobbies, people and things that are special to them. 





"Then off sailed Jack, with Stu and Rose,

For the faraway Isle of Blowyernose" 

After receiving a mysterious sack full of interesting objects this week, Year 1 have been reading Jack and the Flumflum Tree by Julia Donaldson.

The children have enjoyed creating their own Flumflum trees and have worked hard to sequence the events of the story.


Year 1 have been working hard with their addition this week.
