Welcome to Year 1. Our classes are:
- Madrid class - Mrs Garlick
- Barcelona class - Mrs Harry
Since Christmas Year 1 have been studying the IPC topic of I’m Alive! During English we have immersed ourselves in all things Croc and Bird by Alexis Deacon. We have learned about different animals and their diets, their habitats and their life cycles. We have brushed up on some technical vocabulary including omnivore and oviparous! We created and painted our own papier-mâché eggs. we concluded this unit with a fantastic trip to Godstone Farm where we were able to pond-dip, look for mini-beasts, get up and close and personal with the animals and even ride on the tractor! We attended a salad workshop as part of our unit was based around healthy eating. We had a salad competition and the winning team “silly salads” will have their salad available during lunch service. We brushed up on our art skills drawing cross sections of citrus fruits. In maths we have concentrated on number. We have practised addition and subtraction but really got to grips with how numbers are made up and different ways of representing them. We have also introduced TTRockstars as we begin to work on our times tables.
We can’t wait to see what the next half term has in store for us!
