Year One – Beech & Elm Class News

Our Toy Story topic has got off to a flying start with the children very excited to bring in their own toys. They will be using them to explore materials in Science, research the History of toys (supported by our visit to Hollytrees Toy Museum) and then design and make their very own toys during Design and Technology lessons. 

We are very excited about our forthcoming trip Hollytrees, a local toy museum. Year one will be using what they learn to create their own toy museum back at school, producing display texts for the museum in English lessons.

Our Maths work is focused on developing counting in ones to, from and over 100 as well as counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Number bonds are a prominent fixture of the classrooms with children keen to challenge themselves to reach the next number.
