Key Stage 1

Years 1 & 2 acted as paleontologists, excavating chocolate chips with great care! The clay ammonites they created with clay were very realistic. The children were visited by ‘Technology in Play’, learning about how our bodies work and had fun making lungs.

Year 1

The theme in Year 1 was Dinosaurs. They created dinosaurs from natural materials, in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, made dinosaurs from paper & straws and even measured how many feet there were in a Diplodocus leg! There was great excitement when they followed clues and found an egg! They were very scientific when thinking about which creatures may come from eggs.

Years 1 & 2 Outdoors

Following the theme of ‘On the Move’, Years 1 and 2 worked together in pairs to make minibeasts with natural materials as well as minibeast play parks. We’re sure the bugs in the forest are going to have a great time keeping fit!


As it is outdoor week, everything is done outside, including computing! Year 1 did active sequencing before writing their own code.

They also enjoyed their Multi-sports session as well as a blindfolded Obstacle Course.





Year 6 were visited by students from the University of York Science Departments. They learnt all about the body’s senses.


Year 1 enjoyed a senses investigation – tasting blindfolded, feeling for a soft fluffy material and using their eyes to read the ruler accurately when measuring.

Year 1 Investigate

Year 1 learnt about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. The children had to read the information cards and then sort the animals.



Outdoors with Year 1

Year 1 enjoyed maths outside. They had to hunt for digit cards, make 2 digit numbers and order them.             Then they had to choose a card and write the number one more and one less.…

Science Week in Year 1

Year 1 have been helping B &Q make some new paint colours. They only had red, yellow and blue to start so they had to find out how to mix all the other colours. Another challenge was to make their own…
