In year 1 we have fun, learning through focused groups and in our classroom provision. In our classroom we have challenges in RE, Science, Art, History and Geography. We have areas in our classroom where we can deepen our understanding in RE, construction, woodwork and phonics. We enjoy all areas in our new classroom, it gives us so many opportunities to practise skilled we have learned. 

Our topic this half term is Toy Story and then a short topic on Christmas.


Monday 4th November This week we have been busy learning in our classroom that has been set up with new challenges for the weeks ahead. We have been designing and building a marble run, we have been searching for the school using google maps, designing and making our own playgrounds. In RE we are in the last week of our topic Belonging we have learned more about the Sacrament of Baptism and we can now recognise key words and vocabulary. Also we have used role play to show the key components of a Baptism.


Our topic last half term was We are Incredible

So far this term we have read texts, Supertato, Traction Man and Oliver's Vegetables. In RE our learning has been about Families and how we show love and care. The children have thought about the love and care in the family of Jesus. We have made collages used role play and made paintings of our families during this topic.


This week Monday 30th September
