Autumn 1 Staying Alive
At the beginning of Year 1, we focused on our wellbeing and settling into our new routine. We created artwork responding to the book ‘The Dot’ by Peter H. Reynolds. For our half term topic 'Staying Alive', we learnt about how to look after our bodies and the importance of looking after our physical and mental wellbeing. We studied the lives of Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale. We wrote a letter pretending to be Florence Nightingale. Year 1 really enjoyed designing and making a nurse’s bag for Mary Seacole too. In Coral class we had a Doctor’s surgery role play area. In Pearl class we had a fire station!
Autumn 2 Memory Box and Toys
Our topic this half term is 'Memory Box and Toys'. This topic focuses on History and Literacy and 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 retell stories in our class role play areas and focus on sharing ideas and listening to others. In Coral class we have created a space station for our role play area and in Pearl class we have created our own classroom theatre!
