Look at what we do in Year 1
The children have thoroughly enjoyed this new topic which has been all about animals. They have learnt to classify animals into their different groups.
The topic kick started with a visit to Paultons Park where they spotted lots of different animals. They got the opportunity to hold different animals and learn about their habitats. See some of the animals below.
The children learnt about how we can look after animals. They researched how plastics can be damaging for the sea creatures. To show their thinking they created an art gallery to represent what is happening to the animals if people do not recycle plastics.
Once upon a town
During this topic the children have enjoyed reading a range of traditional stories and discussing their favourite characters. They acted out scenes from the ‘The gingerbread man’ and learnt actions to help retell the story. They wrote their very own ‘gingerbread man’ stories using lots of great adjectives to make their stories interesting. They baked gingerbread biscuits and made wonderful masks for characters from this story.
In Geography the children learnt how to create a map for a traditional character. They learnt how maps have symbols and we can use a compass to help find North, South, East and West.
