Year 1 St Martin

Welcome to Year 1

St Martin de Porres



We are well and truly into our school year and the children are making some excellent progress thus far. We have had fun making listening ears in Science, being shape detectives in and around school for Maths, being artists and making self portraits using shapes inspired by picasso, being performers in our Collective Worship sessions and so much more.


You will be able to see on these pages some of the work Year 1 have compiled in picture form occasionally some vieos. I have included their favourite collective worship videos for you to enjoy at home.


Thank you for being so supportive and encouraging your children. This remind me of one of my favourite passages from the Bible:



Psalm 25:4-5New International Version (NIV)

Show me your ways, Lord,
    teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior,
    and my hope is in you all day long.




Every Blessing,

Miss Ladd smiley

"My Lighthouse" from Rend Collective (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO)

During Collective Worship Year 1 have beenlearning the actions and lyrics to "My Lighthouse" from Rend Collective (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO). See if they can teach them to you. Enjoy.

Year 1's visit by Artist Linda. You can see the children's abstract self portraits which have been displayed as a stained glass window at the Year 1 calssroom.

The camera really doesn't capture the beauty of Year 1's art work. You can see the childrens work on the class 1 windows.

Year 1 enjoyed a trip to Grovelands Park to explore nature through bark rubbings, looking at why some trees lose their leaves in autumn and winter and some don't. Year 1 enjoyed some time playing at the parks playground with Year 2 and linked this experience to the book 'A Walk in The Park' by Anthoney Browne.

Little Drummer Boy - Pentatonix

As we near the festive season this acapella video of 'Little Drummer Boy' from the Official Video Pentatonix, reminds us to appreciate the simple things such as five voices creating this magical peice of music. Enjoy.
Every Blessing
