Hello and welcome to our Year One at Old Hall Primary School. This is a very exciting year for you and your child, as they explore the wonderful topics that are part of our Old Hall curriculum for Year 1.

Our non-chronological reports


We have been using the text Toys in Space and have been inspired to create our own non-chronological reports on aliens. We have remembered to use a heading, subheadings, pictures and captions and have used lots of expanded noun phrases. We are so proud of our work.

Mark Making - making waves


In art we have been working on mark making and using different media. We looked at the artist Zaria Forman and the art she has created. Working together we had to create a piece of art listening to music while using different media to represent the waves. 



For our Science topic unit we focussed on Autumn. We went on an Autumn walk to the local park and found lots of items on our Autumn checklist.

We have also created these super pictures using collected autumnal items such as leaves, conkers and twigs. Then working collaboratively we created these fantastic pictures.
