Autumn Term

This half term we have focused on settling the children into their new routines. We started off the term with a focus on well-being, looking at the book 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas. We talked about different feelings and emotions and even made our own colour monsters. We went on a colour hunt around the school garden, collecting found objects to create our own colour charts. We really enjoyed getting to know each other and our new teachers. 


Year 1 are learning all about 'Staying Alive' this half-term and have been discussing how to keep our bodies healthy. We have identified different parts of the body, including our lungs and our heart, explaining why they are important. We even had a go at labelling parts of the body!


Year 1 enjoyed tasting a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables including melon, cucumber and apples. We talked about having a balanced diet and keeping our bodies healthy by eating lots of fruit and vegetables. We even had a go at sketching some fruit in our new sketchbooks! 

Spring Term

We are having a fun half-term learning all about our new topic 'Space'. In each classroom we have built our own space stations and rockets where we have gone on adventures to outer space! We have really enjoyed reading non-fiction books about Space.

To start our topic off we read 'Toys in Space' by Mini Grey and retold the story using a story map.

One of our favourite texts was 'Man on the Moon; the life of Bob' by Simon Bartram. We launched off to the moon in our classroom and acted out what it would be like to walk on the moon with zero gravity! We even wrote a postcard to Mrs Langridge  to tell her all about our adventure. 

We loved designing and making our own sock puppets and discussed what materials were best to stick on details such as wings or googly eyes!
