Holbrook Primary – Year 1

Look what we are learning.


In gymnastics we have been learning to jump in different ways. They include tuck jumps, star jumps and pencil jumps. 

We then moved onto learning different ways to roll. These include a pencil roll and a dish roll. 

Next week we will be learning how to do the egg roll and the teddy bear roll. Keep practising at home in a safe space!

Our Wow day

We had a lovely day planned for the Kings, queens, princes, princesses and knights to kick start our new topic.

We began by following some clues and a map to solve our topic and find some buried treasure. We discovered that our topic is Once Upon A Time.

We then went on to make many exciting things including crowns, swords, wands and puppets.

In the afternoon we had a Royal tea party.

It’s been a fantastic day and the children really enjoyed it! A huge thank you to the parents who contributed and provided the clothes.

Hour of code.

Knowing how to program a computer will be a really useful skill for the jobs of the future.  Hour of Code helps to give all children a chance to try some coding.  At Holbrook we already do a lot of coding over the years you are with us but Hour of Code has some great resources that are loads of fun and teach skills that we can use in our own programs later.

This week in Year 1 computing lessons we are coding!

Diwali – Online information.


Computers are a great way of finding out lots of information.  Today in computing we are using the skills we have learned this half term to log on to the computer, use headphones and click on a link from the blog to find out all about the festival of Diwali that takes place over the holiday next week.

Discovery education can be used at home, but you need to log in, but in school we can go directly.

These links can be accessed at home.

We are learning to measure the mass of objects  

In maths we were learning about weight/mass and how to measure it. We looked at key vocabulary which we used throughout the lesson. We looked at different objects and guessed which objects were heavy or light just by looking at them. We discussed how sometimes this could be difficult so we decided to measure by using our hands.
