Welcome to Year 1



Summer Term 

Dathlu 🥳


Our topic for this term is:

Funny Faces 

Year 1 have had a fantastic time on their Immersion day looking at all things Funny Faces! We made our own photo booths where the children got to take photos of each other depicting their funny faces. We also looked at how different faces show how different people are feeling and made our own masks using colour to express ourselves. We also used natural materials from the environment to make a funny face and used colour to Graffiti our own faces! Take a look what we got up to on our Immersion day, we are so excited about celebrating this topic this Summer! 

Spring Term

Our topic for this term was:

Switch it on 💡


Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed our Spring Term topic switch it on. We had so many fantastic opportunities to explore the ways in which electricity arrives to our homes and how we use it. We even had the chance to go on an Educational Visit to Techniquest and watch how they used electricity to create a fantastic light show! 

Autumn Term 

Cynefin 🏡


Our topic this term was:

Wonderful Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

We have loved learning all about the Wonder of Wales; old and new. We have explored our country and it’s Symbols. We’ve explored how our jobs and landscapes have changed as we’ve moved away from traditional Coal Mining. We have explored the experiences of those who worked down the mines, the different jobs that they had and the equipment they would have used. We used this to explore the different forces that would have been needed to create and extract the coal. 
By focusing on the work of artist Evan John Walters we were able to explore how the workers of the mines would have looked. 
We have also explored a some tradition Welsh Folk Dancing ‘Dawns Y Gwerin’. 
We have had a super busy term of learning in Year 1 and are looking forward to a well deserved Christmas break before we embrace our new topic. Keep a look out for an sneak peak on our new topic! 💡
