Doves - Year 1 Class

Welcome to Doves class page (previously known as Elm)

Click here to view the archived Elm 2018-2019 class page.

I would like to say thank you to all our families for your commitment and support with the home learning packs.

I am proud of the effort the children are displaying each week and it is lovely to hear how much fun they are having.

The packs can be found on the Doves Home Learning page if you need them.

As always - please stay in touch either through email or the Seesaw app.

Stay safe.

Mrs Pollard


Doves have been working hard with their families to complete their learning at home. This week the children have explored the Union Jack and made bunting and medals to celebrate VE Day on Friday 8th May.

We have enjoyed finding 'ed' verbs and using them to create a song and in maths we were finding a quarter of shapes and amounts.

The children have investigated different types of tree and even found time to bake/ run/ bounce and make musical instrument!

Well done everyone!

Examples of home learning from previous weeks can be found on the Doves Home Learning page.

Story time

I hope everyone is well and adjusting to this change to the way we are learning.

I thought I would start our next class novel and post a new chapter each week so we continue to enjoy reading together!

Shiver and Sizzle.

Skipton Castle Visit

On Friday 28th February, Key Stage 1 embarked on a trip to Skipton Castle. It was a cold, wet day, but the Doves, Eagles and Falcons embraced the opportunity to explore this wonderful place. It was a memorable day and the children were happy to recount their adventure once we returned to school!

Our creative curriculum topic for Spring 1 is....

Dungeons and Dragons.

Artwork in the style of Paul Klee

Doves enjoyed creating images based on Paul Klee's 'Castle and Sun' artwork...

They also learnt how to create digital images on their Chromebooks, in Computing, using the shape and colour fill tools in a Google Drawing document.

Curriculum Overview 2019-2020

It is important to continue to keep active at this time.

Here are a few ideas and websites to help keep the whole family active!

'If you can be anything in this world, be kind.'

Doves have been thinking about kindness and how we can make a difference by using kind words and gestures.

Throughout Lent, Mrs Thornber and myself are looking out for children who carry out random acts of kindness. They will be awarded a Dove on our class kindness tree.

Computing - Capturing Autumn Images

We took our computing learning outside, using our iPads to capture signs of autumn in our school wood, and what a fun time we had!  

We developed photography skills such as zooming in and holding our iPads very still to prevent the image being blurred. We also learned how to review the images we took and to delete ones that we didn't want to keep.

Blessed with beautiful, late autumn sunshine and the wonderful nature within our school grounds, we were able to capture the season in its golden splendour!

Take a look at the slideshow of the fabulous images we took.

We think you'll agree that we have some budding, young photographers in Doves Class!
