Welcome to 1ZH!

We are so excited to have started our learning journey in Year 1 and we are feeling very grown up indeed after completing our first year at school! We are looking forward to discovering some new subjects, meeting new friends and taking on more responsibility in our learning and around the school. 

Check back to our page for updates on what we have been doing in class, termly newsletters, spelling lists and for information on how you can support our learning at home.

In Year 1 we have been learning about the life and work of post-impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh.

We found out that Van Gogh liked to paint landscapes and self-portraits and that he only sold one painting in his whole life. We looked carefully at his style of painting and recreated some of his most famous art pieces using collage, watercolour paint, oil pastels and pencil. We also created prints of sunflowers using handmade foam printers and oil paint and drew careful observational pictures of sunflowers.

Both the Year 1 classes worked together with the fabulous Fiona to create a large collage of Starry Starry Night using paper and card.
