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!

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.
