Autumn 1

Outdoor Art


This half term we have been using a range of media and materials to create our own self portraits. We thought it would be a good idea to use natural materials we found in our outdoor learning sessions to create our self portraits. We hope you like them!



This half term we have been focusing on numbers to 10. We have sorted and counted objects, represented numbers in different ways and compared different amounts. Here are some pictures of us using our tens frames to help us count different objects.

Stick Fun!


In one of our outdoor learning sessions we got creative with sticks. The children made different creations with their sticks. Some children worked independently and some children worked in a group. The next day we added in wool and scissors to see what else we could create using our sticks. 

Week 1 and 2


It has been fantastic to have everyone back into school and in Year 1 we have had lots of fun exploring our new classroom and our very own outdoor area. This year we have introduced a play based approach in Year 1 to help the children's transition into Year 1 from Reception. 


For the first two weeks in school we have been focusing on settling into class and thinking about our emotions and feelings. We have really enjoyed reading the story of The Colour Monster and here is a link to a online retelling of the story


We have enjoyed lots of different activities  including: -

  • Making our own colour monster puppets
  • Creating monsters in the playdough area
  • Exploring what colours we can make using paint
  • Making our own feelings faces using various materials
  • Exploring our feelings outdoors
  • Creating our own feelings books
  • Going on a colour hunt outdoors
