Term 2

We have started learning about tens and ones for numbers up to twenty. We learnt how to represent numbers using diennes and how to find out how many tens and ones were in these numbers.

The culmination of our work on capital letters was to retell the Jolly Postman's journey. Spot the children using capital letters for names, places and days of the week.
This week we made birthday cards for Goldilocks, writing as a character from a nursery rhyme. Maybe you recognise some of the rhymes.
In our new book The Jolly Postman, we read a part where Baby Bear receives a letter from Goldilocks. We had a great time debating whether Baby Bear would forgive Goldilocks or not, this is what we thought...

We received a delivery!

To start our enquiry, we received an exciting letter which was posted to our class. We examined the address and when we opened it up discovered a new book, some clues and a letter from the Jolly Postman himself!

Our Enquiry - How can we send a Christmas card home?


This term we will be asking the question 'How can we send a Christmas card home?'

We will be learning about what postmen do and how letters are delivered. We will be thinking about addresses and what each part of it means. Along with this we be looking at maps and how letters are sent around the world. We will be reading a lovely book called The Jolly Postman and using this in our writing and enquiry lessons. We will also look at the Jolly Christmas Postman as we get closer to Christmas! As Christmas approaches we will also be looking at how to send a Christmas card home to each of our families, which we hope you will be excited to receive in time for Christmas.

Term 1

How to keep safe on the moon.

We have been writing safety information and designing safety signs for tourists visiting the moon. The children really enjoyed role-playing what might happen to tourists who didn't know how to stay safe on the moon - falling into craters, being bitten by aliens and flying off in rockets in the wrong direction. So we thought it was a good idea to tell them how to stay safe. The children came up with lots of ideas and practiced putting them into sentences that make sense, using 'think it, say it, write it, read it' to encourage them to plan their sentence before writing it down.


In RE we have been learning about creation. We have looked at the story in the Bible about what happened on each day. We have ordered what happened and been retelling the story to each other. We have also looked at things that God made and things that God did not make. We have just finished painting pictures of some of the things that God made. The children were brilliant using paint in class for the first time in year 1 and created some great paintings. Can you guess what they are?

Things that God made


We have been making rockets. First we planned them, thinking about what we would need and how we would do it. Then we made our rockets using all kinds of junk and different materials. The children worked very independently, choosing which materials to use and how to attach them together to make their creation. Following this we then evaluated our models to see what went well and what could be improved if we had more time. The children had a lot of fun!

Our enquiry: How do astronauts travel into space?

This term we will be learning all about space. This includes learning how rockets help astronauts travel to space safely and why spacesuits are designed carefully. We will then spend time creating our own rockets and spacesuits. 


Alongside our enquiry, we will be reading a story called 'Man on the Moon: A day in the life of Bob' to help us imagine what life on the moon would be like!

In week 1 we were visited by Steve, a rocket scientist. He explained how rockets launch into space and showed us lots of exciting ways to create rocket effects. We created our own rockets and Steve helped us to launch them across the field. We couldn't believe how high they could go! We are going to spend more time in class creating some of our own rockets using inspiration from the rocket that British astronaut Tim Peake used to get to space.
