The first half term in Year 1 is drawing to a close and looking back we’ve had a brilliant time so far. All the children have settled into our routine and are enjoying the variety of learning on offer.
We have enjoyed looking at our Class book, Avocado Baby, building special carts, talking about super foods and even trying avocado during our storytelling day! The children had a great time sharing their learning with their grown ups and having a visit from a storyteller. Some children even wrote their own Avocado Baby story book with illustrations.
We have been learning about the different parts of our bodies and our senses and wrote our own senses poems, which we performed to each-other.
We have written instructions, postcards and nomination cards and learnt about different traditional tales. We’ve written descriptions of characters, designed Wanted posters and some children have even written the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears!
In R.E. we have been finding out about ‘What Christians Believe’ and through our History theme we have been learning about toys, old and new. Lots of parents and grandparents have sent in their old toys for us to see and try out. We can now use a timeline to order events.
We drew a self-portrait, but then learnt how to do it properly. You should see how much better our drawing is now! We learnt about portrait artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse and Gustav Klimt.
We are already looking forward to our new learning next half term.
