In Year One, we have been settling the children into their new routine. Our topic is 'Staying Alive' and we have been learning lots of exciting things about our bodies. The children have been enjoying the story 'Funny Bones' and have been making their own collages of skeletons and have had great fun dancing to 'The Skeleton Dance!' We have also been learning all about healthy eating and balanced diets. We started off by reading, 'Avocado Baby' by John Burningham and thinking about what would happen if we found a magic avocado!
We have been learning all about the different public services which help us to stay safe and be healthy, offering healthy lifestyle advice to Grendel and looking back in history to learn about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole!
Our Topic: Memory Box & Toys
This topic focuses on History and Literacy we will be exploring toys from the past and comparing them to the toys we play with now. We also think about our lives so far and discuss our memories. We will talk about our families and friends, our experiences and special celebrations. We will design and create our own memory boxes to keep our special memories. We hope that we can look back on these in years to come, to think about how we have changed as we have grown up.
As part of our topic Memory Box & Toys, Year One visited the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.
The children will be participated in a workshop looking at toys from the past. The workshop was led by a member of staff from the museum. The children also had the opportunity to explore the museum and participate in activities linked to our toy topic.
