Quarter 1

Welcome to Year 1!

The children have been very busy for the past few weeks and have settled into Year 1 brilliantly!

Our topic this quarter is ‘All About Me’ and we have been learning to name and label parts of the body. As part of this, we drew around each other in the playground and then identified parts of the body using our chalk markings. We drew timelines of our own lives and looked at how we change as we grow too.

We were also lucky enough to have Rachel and her Science machine come to see us. She asked the children if they could help her to fix her science machine by giving it lots of scientific information. They also thought about their senses and used them in different ways. The children compared humans to other animals and described the structure of a variety of animals. At the end of the session the children were able to give the special machine lots of facts to make it work again!

Quarter 2

What a brilliant start to the year we have had!

Within Quarter 2 we have been learning all about the amazing Arctic. As our sparkling start, we were lucky enough to have Mr Hall come in to tell us all about his experience of the Arctic. He shared photos of his time exploring and some photos of Arctic animals he saw too! Mr Hall took us outside to do some map reading. The children loved this activity and tried very hard to use their map's to find the small, yellow flags that were hidden around the playground.  The children were all very polite, listened carefully and showed our visitor just how amazing Kendall is!

We have had a very busy quarter in Year 1 from our Nativity performance to making Arctic animal clay models. The children have worked extremely hard and I am very proud of them all! I know that their amazing enthusiasm will continue for the rest of the year! 



Quarter 3

We have started our new Plant topic off with looking at the parts of a plant and their functions/jobs. The children drew and labelled some amazing plants on the playground in pairs. We also thought of different actions to help us learn these important parts and used these to play a game in the hall. The children have also made some beautiful plant pictures with Mrs Surguy this week too!

We are very much looking forward to our trip to Abberton Reservoir trip after half term!
