Autumn 1

Our first half term in year 1 has been super exciting. We have all settled in well and enjoyed exploring our new classroom. We have been very lucky to get lots of new resources meaning we can use our outdoor classroom as part of our learning. 


Science: This half term our topic has been animals including humans. We had lots of fun exploring and learning all about our 5 senses. We carried out taste tests for our sense of taste. The marmite was not very popular. We did a sound walk around the school and grounds to see what different types of sounds we could hear. We used feely bags for our sense of touch to feel lots of different textures and we carried out smell tests for our sense of smell. The flowers were our favourite. 


Autumn 2

Literacy: This half term we are focusing on the Author Julia Donaldson and using her stories to help us to develop our sentence structure and retelling of stories. We are also focusing on the key features of the story (beginning, middle and end). 

We have enjoyed looking at the story 'Smartest Giant in Town'. We learnt the story and some of even dressed up as the characters and acted it out while the rest of the class re-told the story. This was lots of fun!
