Year One

Come and meet the team! We are a small, but dedicated team. The class teachers are: Mrs Lord and Mr Ingram, with the class TA being Miss Williams. Our LSAs are Mrs Turley, Mrs Milton and Mrs wicks.

Summer Topic – Our Beautiful World

We have our new topic for this term and we will be looking at the many different and varied aspects of our beautiful world.

What can year 1 do to help save our world?

What do we already know about the problems we have and how can we save endangered animals? We will be researching Whales and Polar bears, using maps and atlases to locate seas and oceans, using Google Earth to investigate similarities and differences of animals habitats. Experimenting to see what happens to light when oil floats on water and how ice is formed and what happens when it melts.
Using our IT skills we will be searching for information in kids planet and BBC Bitesize to make posters about our beautiful world. Using pastels we will be mixing colours to understand the colour wheel and thinking about how we could help endangered sea creatures by creating understanding of their plight.
In music and dance we will be recreating the sounds and noises of the oceans, with routines that can show our understanding of the movements of creatures in different continents. In our outdoor learning we will be using our five senses to observe our beautiful world and consider how we might be able to record and save our observations.
Sounds like a fantastic term ahead !
