Welcome Message:

Welcome to Year 1! We hope you had a lovely Summer break. We are looking forward to learning all about buildings and materials.


Our Topic: 

The Big Build

During this topic we will be exploring how we use materials to change the world around us. We will learn how the world looks from above, we will experience building shelters, we will learn how to keep safe through 'The Three Little Pigs Story', and we will investigate what materials are used for in constructing modern buildings.
