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!

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.
