Our topic for science this term is 'Who am I'. We have been exploring our skeltons and why they are so important. We started our topic by labelling our bodies and then we had a go at making a skelton using dog bones and cotton buds. The children loved making these. Next week we will be exploring our senses.
This year the children will complete an independent study, this is made up of facts, information and pictures. The children have chosen the topic of 'Animals'. It would be great if over the year the children could carry out some research at home about particular animals of their interest. We can then include this information in their independent study folders. Please send any work completed at home in with your child.
Thank you for your co-operation and support.
We would like to welcome all the new children and parents to year 1. We have had a busy first week back, settling in and learning the new routines.
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.
