Merry Christmas from all of us!

In term 1, we have been learning about the history of toys. We drew pictures of our favourite toys and described them. We also got to play with some of them!

In English, we read the book called "The Robot and the bluebird" by David Lucas. Just like the Robot, we went on a journey to save the bluebird. What an adventure that was!

In Art, we created self portraits in the style of a Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso. We had lots of fun comparing them to our actual selves!

To celebrate the Black History Month, we learned about Martin Luther King Jr who had a dream that everyone should be able to become whoever they want to be, regardless of what they look like and where they come from. We then wrote down our dreams in the dream clouds for our school display.

To mark the Remembrance Day, we learned that poppies help us remember all the soldiers that died during the war. We then made poppies out of the cupcake cases and some pipe cleaners for our Remembrance Day class display.

Christmas time in Year 1 - class advent calendar, Christmas tree decorating and our Christmas party

In art, we created trolls using different materials and taking inspiration from Kurt Schwitters - the artist we learned about this term.

We celebrated Children's Mental Health week by talking about our feelings and things that make us happy.

This term, we have been reading a book called 'Growing Frogs' by Vivian French. We created some information posters about life cycles of frogs. We worked super hard and we are super proud of our work.

In art, we've been looking at land artist and envirnmentalist Andy Goldsworthy. He creates his artwork using natural materials. We decided to have a go ourselves! We collected some natural materials and then took turns to create a class master piece.

New trim trail is proving very popular with everyone in Year 1!

We have so much fun on Number Day! Our number outfits were fantastic and we really enjoyed completing some fun maths activites.

During the growth day, we did some mindful stretching and we planted some new plants in our outside area to make it summer ready. We really enjoyed our day.

This term in RE, we have been learning about stories from different faiths. This week, we looked at the Buddhist story of Siddhartha and the swan. The story taught us that we should look after the animals and where they live. We then made origami swans out of paper.
