We Inspire and Nurture Success

Year 1

Thank you to the children and staff at Ashton High school. Year One loved taking part in all the sports. From balloon volley ball, space hopper bouncing, parachute games and golf, just to name a few sports. Year One loved taking part, exercising and most importantly….HAVING FUN! 

Multi Skills Festival at Ashton-On-Mersey High School

Year One have been working really hard on their football skills. From dribbling, with great ball control, to passing the ball, the children have really mastered their skills. Watch out England!… we might have some budding football stars in the future. 

Football Fever In Year One

The children loved learning all about the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. She inspired Year One to produce their own paintings of flowers using bright, vibrant colours.

Science Week- March 2024

We read the book - Someone's swallowed Stanley by Sarah Roberts and learned all about the dangers of plastic, especially in the oceans, as it doesn't easily decompose. Over time, we tested this by observing how a banana and orange decomposed while the plastic ruler didn't change at all. We have written to our local supermarket- The COOP to ask them to use less plastic. We then made our very own biodegradable plastic. All week, we reused plastic, in our craft area and made things like necklaces. Finally ended our Science week by reusing plastic bags to make our own parachutes and LOVED testing them outdoors.

Spooky Day Fun

Great fun was had on Spooky Day, with some scary dancing…..a haunted Phonics lesson and finally we had some chilled out little monsters during our Yoga session. 

Exploring Where We Live

How interesting is the place where we live. On our walk around Ashton-on Mersey we spotted lots different types of buildings, both old and new. Then we learnt about the secret tunnel as we walked across the cobbles to St Martin’s church. We loved looking at the stocks outside the church. We finished the walk looking at the old school building. 


What creative classes we are! Using our imagination, we explored different ways of decorating our dots. Printing, collage and painting with our friends we definitely made our marks. 


The children have had lots of fun exploring their new classroom, completing challenges and meeting their new teachers.
