Our First Half Term in Year 1

What a busy first half term we have had! We have all settled into Year 1 so well. Our first topic this half term has been ‘Rubbish Monster’. We have even been on our first school trip!

Our first day in Year 1

Rubbish Monster

Our first topic was all about recycling and materials. We based our work around the story ‘Litterbug Doug’. We made puppets, set up our own recycling centre and went to Wakefield Recycling Centre to find out what happens to all of our rubbish.

Autumn 2 – Wander in the Woods

We started our new topic with a walk in the school grounds to see what we find outside. To our surprise we found a fairy door with a letter from the Purston Pixies setting us some challenges! We can wait to complete them!
