Spring 1

Look at our amazing rockets!

This week, some children planted radishes.

They had to read the instructions carefully.

Numbers Day- We used numbers to help us to draw animals. 

We have been busy creating our own animations.

Super writing!

Year 1 have been learning about measuring. We made different length worms and then described them using mathematical vocabulary. 

Exploring space using Goggle Expeditions


We have been learning about the story 'Beegu'. We used role play to retell the story. Look at our fantastic acting!



Phonic games!


We have had an exciting week in year 1! 

We found a spaceship crashed on our school field. We explored the spaceship and thought about how it might have got there.


In maths, we have been learning about time. We have learned the days of the week and months of the year.


We have learnt a song to help us remember the order of the months:


We have also learned about o'clock times.

Next week, we are going to be learning about half past times and solving time problems. 

Here are some time games for you to play:





Spring 1- Moon zoom


Would you like to be an astronaut? You’ll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do. We will be learning about different materials and thinking about which materials would be best for different purposes.

Find out the names of the planets. There’s Mercury, Neptune, Mars and… do you know any others? I’ve forgotten the rest!

Hold tight….5-4-3-2-1…lift off!


We will be learning about:

  • different materials and their properties
  • the planets in the solar system
  • simple animation
  • Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin (the first men to land on the Moon)


You could support your child by:

  • visit the library and read space-themed books
  • search websites for some fascinating space facts and make a fact book
  • find out about different people who have visited space
  • make a telescope from junk modelling. Look up into the night sky. Can you see any wonderful patterns? Draw the pattern of stars that you spotted
  • make your own space song or rhyme.



As part of this topic, the children will be designing and making their own space crafts. Please save any recycling that you think would be useful and bring it into school next half term.
