Whisby Nature Trip - Summer 1!

Here are some photos from our day out to Whisby Nature Centre as part of our Science unit: 'Plants'. We looks at lots of different types of flowers, created clay woodland creatures which we stuck to the trees & went pond dipping. We saw lots of different animals and even managed to collect some tadpoles, beetle larvae and various types of eggs. It was great to spend time in the outdoors and support our learning through practical workshops!


Multiplication and Division Learning! Summer 1

Here are some pictures of what our Year 1's have been getting up to in their maths lessons! Following the learning for mastery approach, the children have been working hard to represent their mathematical thinking using concrete resources and pictorial representations. Today we had 10 different stations within our classroom, each with a different question. The children worked in pairs to complete the task before rotating round onto the next station. They worked very hard and it was great to see them put their 'Multiplication and Division' knowledge to the test, before we move onto our next unit, 'Fractions'.

Success at multi-skills! Summer 1

10 KS1 children had the opportunity to represent Bardney  School at a multi-skills sporting event, organised by our PE providers, JB Sports. The morning was non-competitive with the children only having to beat their own scores, rather than compete with other schools. There were over 10 different activites and plenty of opportunity to showcase their sporting talent. The children behaved exceptionally and got thoroughly stuck in, we even came away with 2 medals!

Well done to our 3 Year 1 class members who attended! We're so proud of you all!

Spring term 1 curriculum in year 1

In English, we will continue to focus on handwriting and letter formation. We will be writing fact files and instructions. In Maths, our focus is on multiplication and division, fractions, position and direction. In Science, our learning will be about plants across both Summer 1 and Summer 2. Our work in RE will focus on places of worship in Christianity. We are moving forward with Phonics, looking at the alternative sounds in Phase 5. The children have a phonics screening check between Monday 10th June and Friday 15th June 2024. Nonsense/alien words will be sent home to support your child with this.  

For this half term, we will be focusing on Geography learning Our Country, focusing specifically on our capital city, London. In Art we will be looking at drawing, using charcoal, pens and pencils to create our own picture. In PSHE, we will be learning about the importance of attendance at school along with the unit 'Growing In Our World'. In computing, we will be writing digitally.

Year 1 spring 1 Newsletter and Home learning

Please see our Summer 1 newsletter with our most up-to-date information.

KS1 have a Science trip to Whisby Nature Centre on the 1st May 2024.  A letter has gone home with details.


It is really important to read for pleasure regularly at home. Please read the book that you take home from school as well as the books you have at home too. Try to read for a few minutes every day and record it in reading diary's as this leads to enteries into the reading raffle! If your child has 5 reading entry's in a week they will be entered into the reading raffle, which is drawn every half term, to hopefully win a book of their choice!
