Week 1

What a great start to our first week in year 1.  The children are settling in well to our new routines and are enjoying exploring their new classrooms. We have made a start on our new topic ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’ and have designed and made paper plateanimals. Take a look at our creations:



Moon Zoom

We hope you all had a lovely February half term.  It was great to see what some of you got up to on our twitter account.

Our new topic for the Spring 2 Term is Moon Zoom.

The children showed a lot of interest when we were discussing the various theories of why the dinosaurs became extinct – the asteroid hit being the most popular! So we are hoping that this new topic captures their imagination just as much.

The overview and home learning ideas are on our blog now.

Dinosaur Madness

The children loved our Dinosaur Planet topic and learnt so much.  We couldn’t believe how much the children did at home to enhance their learning and the many wonderful resources that they brought into class to share with us.  Thank you!

We were delighted that so many of you came to watch our class assembly.  The children were amazing and it was lovely to see how their confidence had grown since our nativity.


Welcome Back

Happy New Year.

The children have returned to school beautifully and are really interested in our new topic DINOSAUR PLANET.

We have lots of things planned for an exciting term ahead.

Watch this space!

Look what happened in Y1!

Oh wow….. something magical happened…. a fairy door appeared and there was a letter!

A fairy was lost and came to our class for help.  We promised to be nature detectives and find out all about woodlands in order to help them find their way back home.

What a great first 1/2 term

The children have had a great first 1/2 term in Y1.  We hope that you have enjoyed seeing all of the photographs that we have posted on twitter @year1_prescot

They have learnt lots about animals during our topic.  We bet they can tell you all about habitats, camouflage, herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.

We have also seen some very creative children who have made some fantastic paper plate animals and painted some amazing animal pictures.  There was super team work amongst all the children when they planned and designed their own zoo enclosure.

We can’t wait to see what they learn during our next topic.

Welcome to Year 1

A big welcome to our new children and families.


We are excited for the year ahead working with both you and your children.

We will keep this blog up to date with information regarding topics and how you can support your child’s learning at home.

You will be able to access the half termly overviews, information about Y1 curriculum, assessments and expectations.

We recommend that you follow us on twitter for daily photos of what we have been up to and also for any information and reminders.   It is a great starting point for a conversation with your child about their day.
