Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Welcome to Year 1!
This half term our new topic is Animals!
During our topic we will learn about animals from around the world.
In Geography we will be focusing on the seven continents and the different animals that we find all around the world. We will also be continuing to look at the Seasons as Spring turns into Summer.
During music we will learn some songs about animals.
ICT skills we will get the children familiar with using computers and logging on and learning how to research animals.
In Art and Design and D&T we will be creating lovely collages and painting of the animals that we are learning about.
In RE we will be talking about God and asking the questions ‘What do we think? What do others think?’
In P.E we will be looking at Atheletics and Games and Skills. P.E is on Monday and Wednesday, so please ensure that your child has their P.E kit with them for the whole week. Please could your child have black shorts and a plain white t-shirt and plimsolls for when we do P.E indoors. We will be hopefully be spending our PE sessions outside so to be prepared for all weathers, please can your child have tracksuit bottoms, a long sleeved top and trainers, for when we do PE outside.
Please can you ensure that your child has a waterproof coat with them everyday, so we can be ready for whatever weather!

Today in Science we talked about what materials are strong! We also talked about which materials are weak. Here are our Science groups sorting out classroom objects into these to groups.
After this we also talked about which strong materials we should use to build a house. We said that we should use: plaster, bricks, wood, cement, glass (for windows), and metal.
We all had lots of fun finding strong and weak objects in our classroom.
