Learning Excellence

Year 1 (Class 4)

Welcome to Year 1
(Class 4)


Due to problems with Tapestry we have moved some of today's learning information and videos onto our class pages. Hopefully Tapestry will be back up and running smoothly soon but until then hopefully this will help...

Tuesday 12th January - Year 1 Home Learning


Issues with Tapestry have continued so, to ensure you are able to access some of the work, we will be uploading the work to the school webpage for another day.




Art - tiger drawing


Sadly, the video is too large to add to the webpage so, please just use the image to create your own tiger drawing. 

You will need:

  • a piece of paper (A5 size)
  • a pencil
  • a black fine pen
  • orange crayon, pencil crayon or felt tip
  • step-by-step image - printed or on a screen to view


Look after your tiger picture as you will need this as we continue with our piece of artwork throughout the week.

Paws, Claws and whiskers - animal sorting activity.

The children at school last week were given a pack of animal pictures and asked to think of ways to sort them into groups. Have a look at the photos to see what ideas they came up with.

You can have a go at this job too. Print out the animal pictures or collect or draw some animal pictures of your own. How many ways can you sort them into groups? You might think about how the animals look or feel, where they live, how they move etc. Explain your groups to someone at home.

Term 1 - Superhero Me!

September 2020


Welcome to Term 1 in Year 1!  The children have settled well and are really enthusiastic about our new Superhero topic. They have completed a number of Superhero missions, in their personalised capes and masks! The story 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra has inspired a lot of our learning and the children have created their own Superveg, written speech bubbles for story characters, built traps for the Evil pea, investigated his crimes and saved captured vegetables. Their enthusiasm for writing has been fantastic and it's been great to see the phonics they've worked so hard on applied in really exciting, meaningful writing.
