Mount Pleasant Primary School

Welcome to Year 1 2021 -2022

Summer Term 

Our brilliant class trip to Blackpool! 

On the 16th June we went to Blackpool Sea Life Centre and St Anne's Beach - we had lots of fun and even got to eat a delicious ice-cream! 

Sports Day 


Father's Day Cards 

We created Father's Day Cards in PSHE. 

Spring Term 

Mother's Day Cards 

We created Mother's Day Cards in PSHE. 


In Geography we have been learning about The United Kingdom. We have learnt the four countries that make The United Kingdom, the capital cities and surrounding seas. We have done lots of activities including looking at maps, labelling the physical and human features and creating our own flags. 

Here are our welsh flags 

World Book Day 

We celebrated 25 Years of the first Harry Potter books by dressing up as magical characters from our favourite stories.  

We made magical wands for snack time, we created character profiles, made our own magical potions and of course read lots of books! 

Here we are dressed up:


In Music we have been learning the Song Your Imagination.  

In Science, we have been learning all about Materials and their properties. We helped Miss Honey Potts investigate which material would be the best for her to make waterproof welly boots and coats. We tested felt, rubber, silk ribbon, cotton wool and paper and we concluded that rubber is waterproof, and the best material for Miss Honey Potts to make for her welly boots and coats.  

In D&T we have been exploring Fire Engines. We were very luckily to have the Fire Brigade come into school and show us the features of a fire engine. After we had explored a real fire engine, we began by designing our own and eventually making our own fire engine. 

Autumn Term  

In History, we have been learning all about The Great Fire of London. We created our own representation of houses in 1666 before the fire, during the fire and after the fire. 

In science, we went on a walk around the school field and on the Wildlife path to find signs of Autumn. 

In our English lessons, we read a story called Julian and the Mermaids. We used a range of materials and created our own mermaid headdress. 

Autumn Term 

In Maths we have been learning about length and mass. We used items that can be found around the classroom to measure their length and mass in non- standard units of measurements  - cubes, counters and paperclips.

In Design Technology we have been tasting, designing and making pizzas. We had lots of fun!

In P.E. this term, we have been exploring gymnastics and dance.
