Welcome to Year 1, this year finds us starting the National Curriculum.
Suddenly we are very busy with Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, D&T, Music, RE and PE.
We follow the letters and sounds approach for phonics and use Oxford Reading Tree Scheme for Reading.
Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like more information about the curriculum.
Four SeasonsThis week we have finished our science topic on ‘seasonal changes’. We played a science game where we tried to match the pictures to the season.We have also been busy practising our Christmas play for you all to see!
Rabbits have been designing their own playground equipment. This week we explored different ways of joining parts to make them move. Now we just need to make them a bit stronger!
Exploring the outsideThis week we had a special multi-skills PE lesson and we worked really hard to improve our agility.In science we went outside to explore the playground area for signs of Autumn.
Food for the Gruffalo!This week in English we went outside to make some food for the Gruffalo. We used our sounds to label our dishes.In Science we became weather forecasters. We thought about what the weather may be like at this time of year.
Sporty Children in Need day
Rabbits have had such an active day today! We have spent the day learning new physical skills and games, including hockey and speed stacking, whilst raising money for children in need. We’ve also been learning about good sportsmanship and the importance of being a humble winner or a gracious loser!
