Keep checking our webpage for updates of our learning.
Our topic to start 2018 off with a bang is Dinosaur Planet. We will be finding lots of facts about dinosaurs, and we might even invent, design and make one of our own! As part of this topic, we will be making giant dinosaur eggs, writing dinosaur riddles, going on a dinosaur hunt and inviting a dinosaur to tea. So we will be writing shopping lists, character descriptions and inventing our own story of 'a dinosaur who came to tea' - will our dinosaur be a carnivore or a herbivore? We need to know so that we can plan our dinosaur tea party.
Our topic to end 2017 was Memory Box. We thought about special events that we can remember, and found out about things that happened in the past before we were born. We took part in a Teddy Bear's Parade! Check out our photos below - we did have fun! As part of our R.E., English and history lessons, we looked back at photos of when we were babies and special family occasions. Traditional tales and fables were a focus for our reading and writing, and we learned how to retell stories with actions.
Our topic to start the year off was Paws, Claws and Whiskers! So we were looking at animals around the world and locally. We had an exciting start to the school year with this topic as lots of visitors cam into Year 1. As part of this topic, we also visited Austerfield Study Centre. We looked at animals around the world and classified them into groups. We had fun building habitats for the local Austerfield animals. To finish our topic, and celebrate our learning, we held a Pet Party. We had lots of fun with our families and pets sharing cake, biscuits and juice, and we also enjoyed performing the songs we had learned about the seven continents and five oceans.
