Welcome back Year 1!
Wednesday 19th February | 10 comments
We have another busy and exciting half term planned in Year 1. We will be learning lots about our amazing bodies and exploring our five senses. Look at our new areas:
During the first week we are having a ‘Busy Body Day’. We will begin by labelling the human body and finding out and writing lots of interesting body facts. We will also have fun competing in the ‘Amazing Body Olympics’.
In our English lessons we will be writing facts about our bodies and the five senses and will also become chicken experts and write our own non-fiction book. We will also continue with our daily phonic lessons and be doing lots of reading.
In maths we will be doing lots of work about place value and also having fun with lots of practical measuring.
We will be doing lots of practical investigations based on the body in our science lessons. We will also become chicken experts! We will be visiting the school farm, so please can you make sure that your child has a pair of wellington boots in school. The children will also be creating their own ‘Chicken Books’ and making mini movies! We would like to share this work with you on Friday 3rd April at 9.15 in the North Hall – more details to follow.
Our computing lessons will be linked to science and maths and we will be using Data Loggers to investigate our heart rates.
In our PE lessons we are beginning our games unit of work. During our Friday afternoon rotation the children will be doing RE, food skills, music and art.
We hope your child’s amazing art is on display in your homes.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.
The Year 1 Team
