We wanted to share with you what we have been up to so far. We have started our new topic of 'Toys' which is based around a story called 'Lost in the Toy Museum'. We have been writing lists, labels and sentences based around the story.
In science we have been learning about our body, labeling the different parts and working out what our 5 senses do. We have been learning a song about our 5 senses. Please see link below. In Art, we have been using different mark making tools to respond to the story 'Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy'. The children enjoyed using pastels and charcoal for the first time.
We have also been exploring our class name 'MacArthur'. We have learnt all about Ellen MacArthur and how she sailed around the world in 71 days. We thought about times when we have been courageous, brave and confident and put our ideas on sail boats. Some of these are displayed on our class door.
For those parents that couldn't attend the meet the teach presentation I have attached the slides for you browse through to find out about the routines and procedures for year 1.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me.
Year 1 class, Mrs Stockdale, Mrs Stagg and Mrs Wray
