Summer 2

Our topic this half term is...Ship Ahoy!

The children have come dressed as pirates today! Ooh argh me hearties! a pirate ship!


The children demonstrated super team working and problem solving skills when making their pirate ships. I was amazed by the level of collaboration going on. Wow!

The children enjoyed their ice cream🍦 in the sunshine ☀️ !
The children have been carefully sketching pirate ships for our new classroom display. They carefully observed the pictures they were sketching, and added lots of lovely detail onto their ships. 😊

Summer 1



The children had a wonderful time visiting the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. They got to see lots of animals in their habitats and talk about all the facts they have learnt so far. The children behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school. We even had lots of sunshine which was an added bonus! :)


The Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Friday 4th May

The children will be visiting the park to learn all about the animals, their habitats and diets. Please click on the logo below for further information about the wonderful animals they have at the park.



The children have been learning all about multiplication and division.

The children have been comparing a rural Kenyan village to a Yorkshire village. They worked as a team and discussed the pictures they were sorting, justifying their answers. 🇰🇪 🇬🇧 


“I think this is in Kenya because their walls are made with bushes.” - James 


“I think this picture was taken in Yorkshire because it’s got long stone walls to keep the sheep in.” - Mason 


“The market is so colourful so it must be in Kenya. The Masai love bright colours.” - Nevaeh


”Lions live in Africa not here.” - Riley 

The children are enjoying looking at our new Africa topic books.

We will be reading lots of fiction and non-fiction books around our topic, Africa!

Image result for active mathsThe children took part in an Active Maths session on capacity.

They used their reasoning skills when talking about capacity and volume, investigating a range of bottles with various capacities. The vocabulary used included; full, empty, half full, half empty, overflowing, almost full, almost empty, volume, absorb/ed and measurement. 


They also had to work as part of a team and use a range of equipment such as sponges, cups and spoons to carry water from one end of the playground to the other. The team that collected the most water won! The children discussed which equipment they found most effective and least effective to carry water; when transporting it from one container to the other. 💦 

The children have been painting enlarged flowers in the style of Georgia O’Keeffe

1LN managed to score the most points on Spellodrome this week. Keep up the hard work!

The children have been observing the caterpillars everyday 🐛 


The caterpillars are nearly ready for the next stage in their life cycle. They have eaten lots of food in preparation for their transformation into chrysalides. Keep watching for updates over the Easter holidays! 

Beautiful butterflies...

Who is Oliver Jeffers?





We have been doing an author study on Oliver Jeffers. The children have really enjoyed reading his picture books and finding out some interesting facts about him! 


  • We researched questions such as:
  • Who is Oliver Jeffers?
  • Where was he born?
  • Does he have a family?
  • What does he do?
  • How did he become an author and illustrator?
  • How many books has he written/illustrated?
  • Does he prefer illustrating or writing stories?
  • How and where does he get his ideas?
  • What are his hobbies? (he has a lot!)
  • What does he like to collect?
  • Does he illustrate or write stories first?
The children have been busy sketching in the style of Oliver Jeffers. I think we may have some future illustrators in our midst!

Outer Space comes to Bramley St Peter’s...

Year 1 were treated to a spectacular stargazing experience when the inflatable planetarium came to visit the school.


The children got to take a ride in Tim Peake's rocket, fly through the ice rings of Saturn, look at the constellations of stars, explore the moon, visit the blazing sun and explore our solar system. The children really experienced lots of 'awe' and 'wonder' during the visit. It was a great experience for all.


Following on from our planetarium visit, the children created constellations. They challenged themselves and chose which constellation they wanted to create. The children decided to choose from Ursa Major, The Plough, Canis Major and the Cygnus.
The children are enjoying their space topic. They have been encouraged to bring in any space-related books or resources to share with the rest of the class.

1LN have been practising their number bonds to 10 and 20 by playing BINGO! The children have impressed the adults by how quickly they can recall their number bonds. Well done!

Our Space display is looking great. The children are working hard and producing some fantastic writing to put on our display board 💫

Year 1 had their first trip of the year to Nell Bank. 

The children were given the opportunity to explore contrasting habitats and discover first-hand how animals use their senses to survive.


By the end of the visit the children were able to name all the woodland animals and describe where they live. They also learnt some science words such as herbivore, carnivore, omnivore and habitat. They could even name some of the creatures found in the pond during their pond dipping experience!


The children were an absolute credit to the school and behaved impeccably. Take a look at some of our fantastic photos!

The children played weasel and rabbit chase!

We have been learning all about hedgehogs.

The children have been researching and writing their own facts using leaflets and iPads. They have explored vocabulary such as, predator, nocturnal, hibernation, snout, protect, hunt, omnivore and scurry.


Whilst discussing what a predator was, the children practised protecting themselves by curling up into a ball and surrounding themselves in spikes, to deter the cheeky fox from eating them!

We also had a visit from a very sleepy hedgehog who got up to lots of mischief when the children were asleep in bed! We checked the CCTV in the quad!

I wonder what he will get up to during the holidays?


Autumn 1

Incredible Me!


Week ending Friday 20th October...


Story time in the book corner!



Phonics Fun

Phoneme pop! One of our favourite games...


Black History Day


The whole school celebrated Black History Day on Monday 16th October.

Our inspirational person in Year 1 was Bessie Coleman. The children learnt lots of interesting facts about her and why she was so inspirational.


The children made Curtis Jenny planes using Mobilo. They took their own pictures using iPads and also recorded videos of their planes doing aerial tricks like those of which Bessie Coleman was famous for!




Week ending Friday 6th October...
Year 1 had a walk around the school grounds to find the different signs of Autumn.  We were using all our senses to see what we could find. Take a look...

Ready steady go!


Year 1 were learning about ordinal numbers. How did we do this? We had a race!


Week ending Friday 29th September...

The children created some fantastic observational drawings of apples using pastels. The children carefully observed the apples, paying attention to detail. They blended the colours with their fingers to create their desired effect. 


The apples were provided by one of the children who had grown them in their very own orchard!

Week ending Friday 22nd September...


The children have been busy practising their cursive handwriting.

One of the children brought in some delicious apples from their allotment. Before we sampled the juicy apples, we decided to use soft pastels and create observational drawings. Look at our super work...
The children have created their very own self portraits using paints. They carefully selected their skin tone colour and used a range of paint brushes to create their desired effect.

Friday 15th September...

The children had lots of fun on our trim trail this week. The sunshine even popped out to say hello!

We have been learning all about numbers this week. The children have been practising reading and matching number names to their numerals and practising their number formation. They have been using the learning walls and maths resources in the classroom to help them form numbers correctly. Especially those tricky number 4's, 7's and 9's! Keep practising!


We have also been using our reasoning skills to explain about sorting a variety of objects. This generated lots of fantastic reasoning between the children. We also talked about why we sort objects and what might happen if we didn't.


The children have been busy making skeletons for our classroom display.They used a variety of media to create their skeletons.

The children have been enjoying their new books in Year 1.

Attendance Trophy - 100% Attendance in 1LN!

What a brilliant start to the new school year. ALL the children attended school EVERY day and were 'in the line by a quarter to nine'. Amazing achievement! Well done and keep it up!

Settling in...

The children have settled well in their new classroom. They have been busy playing in the hospital role play area, reading stories in the cosy reading area, solving 2D shape problems, completing jigsaws and practising number and letter formation. 

They have particularly impressed their teacher with their team effort at tidying up!

The children were very proud to welcome the attendance trophy into their new classroom.
