Year One INSPIRE Workshop



During our science topic on weather we made our own windmills and took them outside to see how windy it was.

During November we had a special Remembrance Assembly where people from the Armed Forces came into school and spoke to us about their jobs and how it is 100 years since the end of World War One. Our school presented them with a basket of goodies for all of those who are in the Armed Forces and are at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

We Remember


The Rosary

During October we went to the prayer garden and took part in a special prayer service for Our Lady. We made our own class rosary beads

Inspire Workshop during the Autumn Term based on Phonics. We welcomed the parents in and informed them about the Letters and Sounds scheme that we follow in school. We also spoke about the Phonics Screening test and what they can do to help their children with their phonics.


During our RE lesson we looked at the story of the Good Samaritan and then worked in a group to role play the story. We know that we should treat everyone equally and fairy regardless of our differences.

Bible Stories



Year 1 took part in a Dinosaur workshop where they were able to look at fossils and then had an assembly where a T-Rex came into the Hall. They loved their afternoon and were both shocked and amazed to see the dinosaur in school.


We loved our time in the Hall during our Christmas parties. We danced our socks off to some of our favourite songs!

1W Class Christmas Party

We each brought in something to share during our party. We enjoyed sitting together as a class to eat our snacks and share our excitement for Christmas.
