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!
Fairy tales and Castles
This topic focuses on History and Science. In Science we will be finding out about different materials and how we can classify materials into different groups based on their properties. We are looking forward to learning about lots of different fairy tales, including Aladdin and Rapunzel. We are studying the sequence of a fairy tale and looking at how we can include lots of descriptive vocabulary in our writing. In History we are exploring the features of a castle and comparing old and new. We are even making our own castle models on the workshop table.
