A very busy week in Year 1!

The highlight of our week was our amazing art gallery when the children exhibited their fabulous art work to the public. The children were very proud of their achievements and we hope you enjoyed the gallery. Thank you very much for all your kind donations – we raised £150! This money will pay for some of the art resources and the rest will be put towards our animal workshop in the summer term.
We have had fun with shapes and art this week. The children were inspired by the art work of Gary Webb and Wassily Kandinsky and created 2D art work and 3D sculptures.
In literacy we have continued with our story writing. This week we used the art work of Raphael Perez to inspire us. The children used their imagination and fell into a painting again! They planned a problem and resolution and then wrote their own stories. We had children flying in hot air balloons, getting swallowed by whales and jumping off skyscrapers with parachutes!
In phonics we have revised all the phonemes learnt so far this year. We have sent home a game for you to play with your child – please keep practising reading all the real and alien words. We also used ‘Spelling Shed’ to help us spell the tricky words.
In our final dance lesson with Mrs Campbell we had fun visiting all the countries again. What great dancers we are in Year 1!
Thank you for all your support this half term – have a lovely holiday,
The Year 1 Team
