Welcome back! We hope you have had a restful break. We are very excited to be back at school and see what this half term has in store for us! Our topic this term is 'All About Autumn' We have been looking at how the world around us is changing now that we are moving into Autumn. We learnt the story Pumpkin Soup- we really loved this story! We made our own delicious pumpkin soup and wrote instructions on how to make it so our friends in Year 2 could make their own. We have enjoyed looking at what happens to the trees, weather and day length in autumn. We have made some beautiful leaf pictures using the different tonal leaves. We learnt why we celebrate Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day. We are now moving on to looking at Space where we will be learning about the planets, moon and sun and how this changes the weather and day length. We will look at stars and phases of the moon and doing an artist study of Van Gogh's A starry Night. In maths we have been looking at addition and subtraction within 10, 2D and 3D shapes and numbers to 20. In RE we have looked at Judaism before we move onto our Christmas topic of Waiting.
Welcome to Year 1's class page!
It has been delightful to meet all the children in year 1 this week. We have loved getting to know our new classroom and the expectations of year 1. This term our topic is 'Marvellous Me'. We have been getting to know one another and our likes and dislikes. We looked at our body parts and named the different body parts including tricky ones like ankles, elbows and thighs. The children really loved playing heads, shoulders, knee and toes. We have been busy using our body parts to play games outside and developing our physical development and ball skills. We have been learning the days of the week through the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We even wrote our own books of this story. We were able to have very special class pets of 5 caterpillars who we watched transform into butterflies before we released them into the wild. We have been learning numbers within 10 and how to count by touching each one. We are getting really good at writing numbers to 10, though we still need to practice the tricky 9,7 and 5! We looked at our school grounds and what materials the play equipment is made of. We also looked at old school photos to see how the school has changed. In RE we spoke about our families and how all our families are different but we are all a part of God's family.
