Autumn 2: All Dressed Up!

Autumn 1: From A to B!

During our topic 'From A to B' we will be learning about different forms of transport and it's history. As part of this, we are learning abou the Rainhill Trials of 1829. The trials were a competition held to find the best locomotive engine and 5 took part. The winner was Stephenson's Rocket! We are all looking forward to seeing this engine on our upcoming visit to the National Railway Museum!

Exit Point

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents that came into school to help us build vehicles for our exit point! We had an amazing afternoon and the finished products were wonderful.

Pedestrian Training

This week we were taught how to cross the road using the Green Cross Code. Amber and Matt from the Leeds City Council Road Safety team taught us the important rules we need to follow when walking by, or crossing a road.


Food Technology

Year One made fruity faces using fruit and vegetables we chopped ourselves! We were shown the correct ways of holding a sharp knife and how to use it safely. We think our faces look good enough to eat!

National Railway Museum

We had an amazing day on our visit to the National Railway Museum! We took part in a workshop on the famous ‘Rocket,’ which we learnt about in class and watched a ‘Punch and Judy’ puppet show! 

Making trains

Today we built our model engines using cardboard and plastic we have brought in from home. We found attaching some of the materials together a little tricky and had to use resilience to make sure they worked.

From A to B Topic Letter

Thursday 6th September- Parents Meeting

Please see below for the letter given out at tonight's meeting.


Our first IPC topic this year is Brainwaves! We will spend the first two weeks learning about how our brain learns best and what we can do to improve our learning. Among other things we will work in teams and co-operate to make jigsaws, learn how to keep our brain healthy, test our resilience in P.E and build our growth mindset. 

During our first few weeks we have all settled in really well! We are using the provision areas in and outside our classroom to complete our Challenge Passports and expand our learning.
