Welcome back Year 1!

Tuesday 2nd January | 4 comments

We hope that you have all had a lovely holiday. We have lots of exciting lessons and activities planned for the next half term. Our topic is ‘What happens in an art gallery?’ and we will be learning all about different types of art and creating our own artwork using various skills and techniques. We even have a real artist coming into school to teach us how to create fused glass. We also have our trip to Bradford Industrial Museum on the 11th and 18th January. Please can you return your child’s consent form during the first week back. We still need more parents to support us on this visit. You will have an opportunity to look at all the amazing work we create at our own art gallery on Thursday 8th February from 2.30pm in the school hall. More details will be sent home soon.

In literacy we are beginning by having a winter themed week and will be reading and writing our own winter poems. We then move onto a unit of work about dinosaurs and fantasy settings and the children will be creating their own characters and settings and writing stories. We have transformed our role play areas into dinosaur caves.

In maths we will continue our work on place value, addition and subtraction. We will also have fun doing lots of practical measuring tasks.

In science we will be developing our working scientifically skills and doing various investigations including experimenting with ice and using materials to keep a dinosaur dry!

Our RE unit for this half term is ‘What does it mean to belong to a group?’ We will be talking about groups they belong to and then comparing differences and similarities between a church and a mosque.

Our PPA time will continue on a Friday afternoon and the children will have fun during the rotation of lessons. This half term they will be doing art, RE, music and food skills.

Phew! What a busy and exciting half term.

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

    It sounds like it’s going to be a really interesting term, almost wish I was still at school! I’m looking forward to hearing about all the new experiences. PS the cereal boxes are starting to pile up, will have to bring them in soon 😉
