Goldfinches (Year 1)

Welcome to Goldfinches - Year 1!


We are very excited to have all the children back in Year 1, all the staff hope you had a relaxing summer ready to start learning. This year we are going to have some great topics, starting off with Castles!  


If there are any concerns or questions regarding your child or their learning, please let us know and we can arrange a time at the end of the day. 


I hope you enjoy looking through all the pictures of the children's learning. 


Thank you 


Mrs Grimmer, Mrs Perry and Mrs Doy.







Happy Easter Everyone! 


We all hope you are well and are enjoying the home learning activities available to you. We are all extremely proud of how you have approached your learning at home. The work we have seen has been excellent and you are all showing us the Reydon learning behaviours even though you are not in school. We have seen evidence of risk taking and challenging yourselves, being resourceful and using the schools website, being reflective when we have given you comments on how to improve your work,  being resilient through completing work in unusual situations and showing good relationships through communicating well with your teachers and your family. 


However, it is now time for a well-earned break, for you to rest and to have some fun before the next school term. We know this holiday is going to be different compared to others so, to help you if you get bored, we have put together a Boredom Busting Easter Activities page below. There are a range of fun activities to have a go at over the holidays.


We look forward to the new term but,for now, have some fun with your families and enjoy Easter.

Beautiful Writing. 


We have all been amazed with everybody's writing so far, for our English this half term.  We have been writing the story of 'We're going on a Bear Hunt', so we decided as a class we would make some changes to our story and go through some different journeys. We had mountains to climb, thunderstorms to try to walk through and lots of other fantastic places to go. 


Here is some examples of the super writing in Year 1.

Castle Art- Printing. 


We looked at different artists during our castle topic, two Artists the Buck Brothers inspired us to produce our own print of a castle using an engraving. It was lots of fun and we made a fantastic picture!



Norwich Castle Trip.


We all had an amazing time on our school trip to Norwich castle. The children all enjoyed looking round the keep, seeing where the food would have been cooked and even where everybody went to the toilet. We also helped the castle to prepare for a jousting competition and made flags to cheer the knights on! Year 1 were also very lucky to sort different items which they would have used in a castle into knights' items and castle items. The armour was very heavy!





First Day Learning.


We have been doing some amazing work on our first day, all linked to our new topic on castles. 

Keep up the hard work Year 1!
