Runaway Foods

As part of our current enquiry, Class Butterworth have been exploring the topic of foods and healty lifestyles. The children have tried lots of different healthy foods and spent time describing these together.


We have been inspired by stories such as The Gingerbread Man and The Runaway Chapati, which have helped the children to explore the key features of stories and write their own stories about runaway foods. The children have expressed interest in reading their stories to others, and are enjoying publishing their work ready to share with others.

Class Butterworth have enjoyed discovering more about our place in the world. We have thought about where to find Malton on a map, and practised using a map of our school to find our way around. We have compared Malton and Filey, discussing their similarities and differences, and have spent time describing what we like and dislike about both places. 

The children all expressed an interest in the need for us to collect our rubbish when we were in Filey, and this has led us to find out more about what and how we can recycle.

Where is Our Place in the World?

We are currently thinking about our place in the world, and the children have enjoyed exploring what they already know about the local area of Malton. Following our wonderful school trip to Filey, the children have compared the two localities, thinking about how they are similar and different.

The Bog Baby

The children have really enjoyed our most recent enquiry, in which we have explored the challenges faced by the Bog Baby and other animals. Following our school trip to the Arboretum, we considered where we had found the Bog Baby and what his habitat was like.


The children expressed their interest in the homes of different animals and we have considered how to use books and the internet to gather information about animals’ habitats. Year One children have applied this in their story writing and have each written their own story about an animal and its habitat, considering the challenges their animal might face.

Step into Spring

As we continue through the Spring Term, Class Butterworth have begun our new enquiry based on trains. It would be fantastic to see any research the children complete at home. Thank you to those of you who have already supported your children in doing this - the children have really enjoyed sharing their work with the class. Year One children will be designing and making their own information leaflets based on what we find out about trains.


Year One children are focusing on 2-digit numbers to 100 in maths. Why not practise reading and writing some 2-digit numbers at home?
