Welcome to Year 1

This half term, Year 1 have been learning about...

Our first topic this year is 'All About Me'! So far the children have learned all about self-portraits and portraits as well as creating a self-portrait in the style of Picasso. We have thought about the different people in our families, the similarities and differences between each other and also people that are special to us in our lives. 

In Science this half term the children have been learning about animals, including humans. We have classified the animals into their groups as well as learning about carnivors, herbivors and omnivors. At the end of the half term we will be moving on to learning about our senses and seasonal changes. 

We have focused on different texts in our English lessons such as The Colour Monster, The Gruffalo and The Littlest Dreamer. The children have been practising letter formation, sentence writing and even beginning to use adjectives to make their writing more exciting!
