Home Learning in Year 1 (week 9), by Miss Jones

Date: 10th Jun 2020 @ 1:06pm

We have had another busy week in Year 1.

This week, our writing has been 'out of this world'. We have focused on Aliens.

There was an alien sighting on Monday and you might recognise where this photo was captured. Year 1 created a list of questions they would ask this cheeky visitor. 


We also enjoyed reading Aliens Love Underpants by Clare Freedman and Ben Cort. The children have worked on developing their vocabularly and selecting words to decribe aliens. They have also created their own alien character. 

In maths, we have been working on counting numbers to 40 and place value of 2 digit numbers.

Summer tastes like a strawberry.

Date: 15th May 2020 @ 2:40pm

Thank you very much Year 1 for continuing to send your photos and emails - it has been lovely seeing and hearing about what you've been up to! 

We have had a very creative week last week in Year 1 with painting in the sunshine, creating shape art, designing and making a musical instrument, decorating bunting for VE day, lego construction, baking, cooking, story writing and book making! 

This week the children have been busy measuring using objects in their home and finding out about different groups of animals.  

If you have not already, check out the other Time Capsule Gallery item to see your friend's time capsules. They all look great! 

Year 1 Time Capsule Project, by Miss Jones

Date: 4th May 2020 @ 4:16pm

During Week 4 of home learning, the Year 1 children worked on decorating and filling their very own time capsule so they can remember the sorts of things they have been doing during home learning. They will hide their time capsules in their house. The time capsules have an important instruciton on the front that says: DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 2030.

The chlidren completed a different activity each day to complete their project. Examples of some of the things inside are: 

  • A family portrait drawing
  • An all about me fact file about themselves
  • A list of things they had enjoyed doing to keep themselves busy
  • A list of things they had learnt
  • Photographs, newspaper cuttings or sketches

It was lovely to recieve emails from the children and to see their time capsules! Thank you for your hard work Year 1.

Year 1 - what are the five senses?, by Miss Jones

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 8:03pm

Year 1 visited the 'Senses Stations' to find out about the 5 senses. Our favourite activity was jelly tasting of course! The jelly was not the colour we expected so we had to reply on our sense of taste to identify it's flavour. 


Year 1 World Book Day 2020, by Miss Jones

Date: 5th Mar 2020 @ 1:04pm

What a wonderful Wonderful Word Book day we had!

Our day started off with a mysterious present being left on Miss Jones’s chair. It was a special type of book that we had not seen before. It was a .... dictionary! The message on the book told us to enjoy learning a new word every hour. We loved picking a page to learn a new word every hour. Some of the words we learnt were acorn, acrobat, yolk and igloo. We loved this so much, we will try to do it everyday. 

Then we walked to the library. We enjoyed listening to two stories and explored be books in the library. It was very peaceful and the children loved reading there. 

Next we shared our books from home with Year 3. It was lovely to see the children coaching one another and talking about their books. Then we swapped teachers for story time. Year 1 enjoyed having Miss Yates read a story to them and Year 3 enjoyed Miss Jones reading to them. 

Finally we got creative and made our own monster bookmark to keep track of our page in our favourite book, at home.

What maths superstars we are!

Year 1 have enjoyed learning number bonds to 5 and 10. We used lots of different ways to help us such as matching games, a giant tens frame, counters, cubes, ping-pong and the hit the button game.  

We enjoyed working with our partners and recording our number sentences. 

Year 1 science , by Miss Jones

We have started our new topic in science this week. George volunteered to help us identify the parts of the body. We made a life-size diagram of George and added labels. 

On Friday, we learnt the names for the parts of our face by drawing and labelling self portraits.

From 3rd – 9th February 2020, Year One took part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme was ‘Find your Brave’. Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. Bravery could be about sharing your worries, asking for help or trying something new. Finding your Brave can build your confidence and make you feel happy.

We all have times where we need to find our Brave our

Just like with our body, it is important we do things to help our minds to be healthy and feel well.


Just like our body, our minds need a rest too.

We learnt about mindfulness and how being calm and quiet each day can help our minds stay healthy. We even tried finger breathing, yoga and mindfulness colouring.

Year One’s Tips for a healthy mind

  • Exercise
  • Eat healthily
  • Share your worries
  • Ask for help
  • Spend time outside
  • Be creative
  • Get enough sleep
  • Have time each where you can be calm and quiet
  • Remember you are special just the way you are

Year 1: seasons artwork , by Miss Jones

Date: 14th Jan 2020 @ 6:52pm

Year one are learning all about seasonal changes as part of our science and geography work.  We have already learnt the different types of weather and are tracking the weather each day this week. Today we learnt a song to about the four seasons and talked about how the weather changes in each season. We then investigated what happens to trees across the four seasons. This helped us create a piece of art using finger painting.

Year 1 - letters to Santa, by Weeks

Date: 11th Dec 2019 @ 1:23pm

Year 1 wrote letters to Santa yesterday using the writing skills we have been working on. Today Mrs McComb received an exciting delivery in the school office which she brought to year 1: a letter back from Santa all the way from the North Pole! The children were very excited to hear that Santa has put them all on his 'good' list, but he will keep watching until Christmas... 

Year 1 - book by the fire, by Weeks

After a busy day, year one enjoyed reading from a super book by our 'fireplace'. The book prompted discussions about kindness, individuality, and being brave. A great end to our day!

Year 1 - multiskills, by Weeks

Date: 28th Nov 2019 @ 4:49pm

Today year one travelled to Ellesmere Port Sports Village to take part in their multiskills event. The children practised jumping, hopping, ball-throwing, aiming beanbags and cup-stacking. One child said they did not want to leave. The children's behaviour was superb and they were great representatives of Oldfield. A big thank you to Mrs Egan-Simon for coming along to help.

Year 1 - Gunpowder plot role-play, by Weeks

Date: 21st Nov 2019 @ 4:15pm

This afternoon in year 1 we acted out a role-play of Guy Fawkes and his friends plotting to blow up the Houses of Parliament. The children used masks to get into character, and thoroughly enjoyed presenting their role-play to the rest of the class.

Year 1: Active Maths , by Miss Jones

Date: 2nd Oct 2019 @ 6:50pm

Year 1 enjoyed an active maths lesson on Tuesday. In groups, children had to run, skip, hop or jump to a hoop to collect a pictorial number card. They then had to work as a team to match it to the correct numeral. They worked brilliantly together and had lots of fun.  

Year 1: Mystery Objects , by Miss Jones

Date: 30th Sep 2019 @ 7:24pm

Year 1 had an unexpected surprise today. When the children returned from playtime, they discovered a mysterious cloth covering several different objects. There was a note that read: 


Here are some things to get you thinking about your new book.  




The objects included: a suitcase, an umbrella, a torch, a penguin book and teddy, a lost poster and a boat! 

The children used the objects to make predictions about our new book, which we later discovered is called Lost and Found. I was very impressed with the children’s excellent  speaking and listening skills as well as super predictions. 

We can’t wait to read more of our new book ...

Date: 19th Sep 2019 @ 5:22pm

The children in Year One have really enjoyed their move into their new classroom. We are all very impressed with how quickly they have learnt the new routines in their new class. The children have enjoyed working in our writing, maths, reading and phonics groups as well as doing yoga with Miss Jones and gymnastics with Mr Bell. They have also been very supportive to our new Reception children, helping them at play times and lunchtimes.
