What happens in Year 1 at Crondall

In Year 1 we support the children through the transition from The Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1. We gradually increase the children’s exposure to more structured, whole class learning and longer lesson times. Whilst ‘choosing time’ is gradually reduced, the children still engage in lots of practical, hands on activities, using a range of resources to develop different concepts, for example using objects to support addition and subtraction in Mathematics.

Our topic this term: Wonderful Water!

Our learning journey: Reeds, Rivers and Rippling Seas.

We have been busy trying to workout what it takes to be a prince or princess. We have created our own royal name and described ourselves as a prince or princess.



Their Learning 2018 – 2019

Wednesday 26th June 2019

What an exciting couple of weeks we have had!  It was great to see Dads coming in last week to take part in phonics and spelling activities with their children.  Today everyone joined in enthusiastically for our Sports Day, well done to all the children who have been practising hard and put in wonderful effort!  More excitement followed this afternoon with Crondall’s got talent, amazing performances from everyone and a special well done to our Year 1 winners; Amber, Bryony, Juliet and Spencer!

Marvellous Middle!

After half term we received a letter from Bog baby asking us to look after some duck’s eggs! One of the eggs had already hatched and we had a ducking to look after. We were lucky enough to watch some of the other eggs hatch and now have 5 ducklings called Fluffy, Chirpy, Honey, Sunlight and Lucky. We have been looking after our ducklings and watched them take their first swim!


Stunning Start!

Strange things have been happening in Year One… We found a mess of leaves, twigs, straw and blue slime in the lodge. When we investigated further we found blue slime on trees and leaves in the field and a nest! What could it be? Eventually we found out that a bog baby was lost and looking for somewhere to live so we made him a home. We found our bog baby in the special habitat we had created for him and have been looking after him ever since. He looks a little bit sad so we have been writing to him, reading to him and making him pictures and games to cheer him up. We hope he will stay!
