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!
