Welcome to term two, we hope you all enjoyed the half term break. Our topic this term is ‘Bright Lights, Big City’ where we’ll be learning lots about our capital city London as well as some local geography and exploring maps and our school grounds. We’ll be looking at the London landmarks and making models as part of our DT. In English we’ll be learning about stories and poetry. And we’ll watch carefully as the seasons change. On Thursdays Mrs Brady will also join us in the afternoon for R.E looking at ‘What do Christians believe God is like’. As the term goes on and we get closer to Christmas we will be practising Christmas songs for the Nativity and making lots of Christmas arts and crafts. We look forward to another great term in Class One. A big thank you to any parents who came in last term to hear readers and help out. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to ask the year one staff.
Our topic for this term is ‘Memory Box’. We will be taking a trip to the past to discover what life was like at the time when we were born. Thinking about our childhoods, we’ll use photos and objects from the past to help us remember special times including weddings and christenings. We’ll talk about our families and share happy memories of people or pets who are no longer alive. Learning about the days, weeks and months of the year will help us to work out how long we will have to wait for our birthdays to arrive! We’ll decide how objects from the past were used and have fun learning games, songs and dances from bygone days. We will spend time finding out about the children and what they like.
We have a class ‘Padlet’ topic page and the link is:
