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!

We have had a busy last couple of weeks of term. We've had a wonderful Easter Service at church along with lots of other Easter celebrations.
In class we have been building our own shoe box houses and we have now finished them!
They all looked fantastic in the end and I'm sure whichever toy is going to live in there will love it!
We also had a wonderful visit from Nick Tyerman to show us how we build the walls of a house. The kids all loved doing this and all got a go at putting a brick onto the wall. Thank you again for coming in to show us all!
Also this week we completed a science experiment with our version of The Three Little Pigs houses. The lego house was the strongest and the weakest was the straw house. Ask you child about how we did it and what happened.
We have had a lovely last day and have all enjoyed the Duck Race with three winners in our class! Well done!
Have a lovely Easter holiday and see you all after.
