Goldfinches (Year 1)

In our science lessons we have been looking at plants and trees. We have been watching some broad beans grow and we have kept a little diary of their progress! 

Growing Broad Beans

Painting Gardens

We have been learning the names of some common wild and garden plants. We used the watercolours to create our own beautiful gardens.

3D Art


As part of our Art this half term, we were looking at making 3D models of lighthouses. We looked at lots of different lighthouses and designs, focusing on the different colours and shapes. 


Yummy fun during our Math lesson- this week we were looking at weight and made some super cupcakes to help us.

Can you guess which story we are going to be learning in English this half term?

Hot seating


One of the tasks we have been practising in our guided reading sessions is HOT SEATING. Year 1 wrote some amazing questions they would like to ask different characters in a book. We then asked someone to be the character and answer the questions. Some super detailed questions and answers from us all. 




Tortoise Art 


We all had lot of fun exploring different Art medias to make different tortoise shell patterns. We had to look carefully at all the detail on the shell and reflect on how we were going to show this using our materials. 



Welcome to Goldfinches - Year 1!


Hope you have had a lovely and fun time at home and during the summer. We cannot wait to get back to our class and have lots of fun as Year One children. This year we are going to have some great topics, starting off with Castles as well as lots of other fun topics.
