Welcome to Year 1


Year 1 have been enjoying learning the Senses. We have found out there are 5 senses. They are:-

Sight - We use our eyes to see.

Smell - We use our nose to smell.

Hearing - We use our ears to hear.

Taste - We use our tongues to taste.

Touch - We often use our hands to touch, but all of our skin can sense touch!


In Literacy, we liked performing poems. Each group learnt a poem, added actions and recited to the rest of the class. We also learnt a class poem. You will find the poems below!

We also created our own poems about our favourite things to taste, smell, touch, hear and see. We used this writing frame to help us. Have a go and make up your own poem at home!

We had a great time in Science Week. We explored our 5 senses and took part in lots of investigations. We also met the Animal Man and all his animals. We were very brave and stroked many of the animals. Mrs Kay even held the tarantula!  Have a look a some of the photographs below.....

Easter Bonnets - Thanks to the many parents who came in and helped us make our Easter Bonnets. They looked fabulous!
