Sports Day Draco

Sports Day

Published on 9th July

Year 1 had a fantastic active morning at our 2021 KS1 Sports Day.
The children took part in a carousel of activities including throwing, beanbag relay, team games, running, football dribble and the traditional sack race!
We are lucky to have the space to have been able to spread out enough to compete at a safe social distance with the Reception and Year 2 bubbles and thanks to some fortunate breaks in the weather we enjoyed a whole lovely morning on our beautiful school field. The children were very supportive of each other, very resilient and showed great sportsmanship.

Castle Day

To celebrate the end of our Best of British topic, year 1 travelled back in time to the realm of lords, ladies and medieval knights. Dressed for the occasion, the children spent the morning preparing for a banquet. They made “trenchers” (medieval bread used as plates) ready to cook on the fire later, created pennants to carry to the feast, and practised their fighting and jousting skills.

DIY - Tools of the Past

Published on 11th February

As part of our history topic, year 1s have been learning about life in the Stone Age. They found out about cave paintings, the invention of farming and early settlements such as Skara Brae, and how Stonehenge was built, among so many other things. They had great fun exploring different materials to make pots, built settlements and Stonehenge using some very creative construction, and created wonderful pieces of art. Then they explored the new inventions of the Bronze Age and Iron Age, learnt to weave, and made 'iron' weapons and coins, and finished off with a 'virtual' Iron Age feast. This is just some of the fantastic learning that the year 1s at home have done this term. Well done Year 1.
