Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Welcome to Year 1!
This half term our new topic is Ourselves.
During our topic we will learn about Ourselves along with how our body works. We will learn about healthy eating and living during Science and we will be doing lots of writing work about Ourselves.
In Geography we will be focusing on the Seasons and this half term we will be focusing on Autumn and what is special about Autumn.
During music we will learn some songs about Ourselves and our bodies.
ICT skills we will get the children familiar with using computers and logging on and learning how to save their work.
In Art and Design we will be looking at drawing and painting self-portraits and how to mix primary colours to make other colours.
In D&T we will look at making a healthy snack for us to eat and we will also look at what food makes a healthy meal and we will design that plate of food.
In RE we will be looking at the questions ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What does it mean to belong?’
In P.E we will be looking at Multi-skills and Football. P.E is on Monday and Friday, so please ensure that your child has their P.E kit with them for the whole week. To be prepared for all weathers, please can your child have tracksuit bottoms, a long sleeved top and trainers, so that we can still do our P.E outside when possible. Please could your child also have black shorts and a plain white t-shirt and plimsolls for when we do P.E indoors.
Please can you ensure that your child has a waterproof coat with them everyday, so we can be ready for whatever weather!

This week has been fun and busy!
We started the week off by doing an experiment with ice. We had two ice cubes and we kept one on a table and another one on the radiator. We watched what happened and check them every five minutes. In the end the ice cube on the radiator melted quicker.
We have also had fun with our area jobs this week. In construction we had to build a tower as big as we could make it.
Here are Louis, Freddie, Ava and Jess with their huge tower which kept falling over but we got a photo in the end.
Here is Hugo and Auden with their amazing tower too!
Well done everyone in the areas this week.
We have also been learning about fractions and we have had great fun playing games of fraction bingo! We learnt about wholes, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 and 1/6.
We also started halving numbers and we used Numicon and play dough to help us. The children printed the Numicon shape that they needed into the play dough and then rubbed out the holes until they had a half.
We've had a great week so far.
