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 also enjoyed dressing up as 'People who help us.'


The children especially enjoyed learning about Florence Nightingale.

During the second half term our topic was 'Seasons'. We looked at the weather changes throughout the year. We learnt which months of the year related to the four seasons. In each class you will find a large tree displaying the four seasons that the children designed and made. The children also enjoyed the stories of 'Percy the Park Keeper' and ‘The Owl Who is Afraid of the Dark’ which were very apt for our topic.


In maths we focused on 2D and 3D shapes where the children developed their knowledge and understanding, for example: of how a circle relates to a cylinder and a square to a cube.  


We enjoyed our trip to the Science Museum. We watched an exciting 3D IMAX film called ‘Under the Sea’ and enjoyed the science behind the ‘Bubble Show’.  Year one have also enjoyed being part of the development of the Edible Playground. We are looking forward to more planting after the holidays.
