For our WE ARE Asinlie Wood Project this half term, we have been super busy learning about our school and what makes Ainslie Wood special. Here are some facts we have learned;

  • There are four quads in our school; yellow, red, green and blue. We also learned that quad means four!
  • There are 462 children in our school. 
  • Sally, who works in the office, is an Ainslie Wood expert!
  • Ainslie Wood is in London which is in England and England is part of the United Kingdom.
    We have loved going to the woods attached to our school and exploring all things autumnal. We couldn't believe how many mushrooms there were!
    We are now very excited to be starting our new project after the Christmas holidays.


In English, we have become traditional tales experts! We in Create Class performed an assembly on Little Red Riding Hood which everyone in Year 1 really enjoyed. We also became authors and wrote our own books on Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We even debated whether we should forgive Goldilocks as she did make some bad choices towards the Three Bears but then we decided we should forgive her. We now understand the importance of capital letters and full stops and enjoyed being punctuation detectives. 


In Maths, we have loved learning to tell the time. Did you know we can blink in 1 second? Some of us were able to do 64 star jumps in 1 minute and we think we could make a cake in 1 hour which is 60 minutes!


We can't wait for Christmas time and are loving all the festivities. Christmas dinner was delicious!



Of course we were more than ready for Year 1! We've settled in so well to the new Year 1 routines.

We've started off the half term with learning about all things wild whilst reading 'Where the Wild Things Are'.  We made predictions, described characters feelings and even designed our own Wild Things! We couldn't believe Max was dreaming all along.

We are becoming number experts and we have also been adding and subtracting numbers. We are now shape detectives searching for the properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes as well as recognising real life shapes all around us.

As the season is changing, we have been using our senses to explore what we can; hear, smell, see, touch and even taste in Autumn. We used adjectives to describe Autumn and made our own senses poems. 

We've had a great start to Year 1 and we are looking forward to beginning Project Based Learning after half term!
