Year 1 - Miss Duncan 

During the year we will be looking at a range of different topics. 

These include:

Our Colourful World 
When we go down to the deep dark woods....

Fabulous Fashion 

On the move 

Jack and the Beanstalk 

Under the deep blue sea 

Meet our Year 1 line-up! 

We have enjoyed playing outside in the lovely sunshine! 

We had to find our name on the tray and then paint it our favourite colour.

 Busy Bees 

Look at our patterns 

This week we have been busy learning all about Elmer the patchwork elephant. We got to make our own Elmer’s using mosaic squares (check out our Elmer display below.)
During play, we sorted items according to colour, created elephant patterns and completed lots of puzzles! 

Our Elmer display!

Enjoying playtime!

We had lots of fun cutting up Elmer to make our own puzzle! We carefully used the scissors and then put the numbers in the correct order. 

Bubble Fun!

We enjoyed making our ‘t’ crowns. 

Our Musical Parade

Here’s a little snippet of our musical elephant parade in the playground. We had lots of fun!

We made yummy pizza with all things ‘p’

It was just ‘p’erfect! 

Rainbow Treasure Hunt

We got to explore the forest on our rainbow treasure hunt. We had to find different coloured items and stick it on our rainbow chart. It was a little muddy, but luckily we had our wellies on!

Rainbow kebabs 

We have been busy learning all the colours of the rainbow. We made tasty rainbow kebabs. We had to thread the piece of fruit onto the stick - each piece of fruit matched the colour of the rainbow. Then we got to eat them - YUMMY!

We learnt that when you mix two colours together you make a new colour! 

Forest Fun

We had lots of fun exploring the forest. We noticed the leaves are changing colours and falling from the trees. 

Year 1 have thoroughly enjoyed listening to and learning the story of ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?’

There are lots of different characters in the story who are a variety of colours so we had to listen very carefully to remember it all.

Below you will find a little snippet of us retelling the story in class. 

We  have been working hard......... 

Our Autumn Adventure 

Lynn from the Forest Service came and took us on an Autumn adventure. She told us all about the different animals that live in the forest. We had to collect leaves, pretend to be birds and work out some animal clues. We had lots of fun!

We had lots of fun re-enacting the story of the Gruffalo this week.

Enjoying play.....

We have been busy investigating all about Autumn. We have been learning all about nocturnal animals. We made bats, hedgehogs and foxes. (It was just a little messy....) 

Our Gruffalo Display 

Our ‘c’ crowns 

Check out our word building...

Gaby was a very busy girl during play time - look at all the words she can sound out using her phonics. Super work!!

Here are some photos of us playing - we were having lots of fun! 

Planting seeds with Gaynor 

We are having lots of fun learning all about Jack and the beanstalk. Check out some of the activities we have been doing below! 

Some of us enjoyed tasting different types of beans - others not so much! 

Under the deep blue sea....

We are enjoying our new topic “Under the deep blue sea.” Have a little look at what we have been getting up to! 

Many thanks to Emily from Solas Highland dancing for coming to give us a short taster. We had lots of fun! 

We had a brilliant day running our races. 

We had to balance the bean bag on the bat.

We had to roll the ball to the finish line

Here are some of the winners!

The ice-cream was a well deserved after all the racing!

Jumping Clay

 We had lots of fun using the jumping clay to make a fish. We had to roll, pat, twist and twirl the clay to make the different shapes.
