Year 1 Learning

Autumn Term

In the first half term we learned all about ourselves! We named the parts of our bodies and we also had fun exploring the 5 senses by tasting and smelling different foods. 

In Art, we looked at portraits and created our own self-portraits using different techniques such as pencil drawings and oil pastels! We drew portraits of our friends and family using chalk and paint.

In the second half term we learned all about London! We began the topic by looking at a map of the UK and named the countries as well as their capital cities. We linked our writing to the story 'We Completely Must Go to London" by writing lists of what we would pack for a day trip to London and a recap of what Charlie and Lola did in London in the book. To finish off the topic we had a fun London themed tea party, with special guest Mrs McLellan! 



Spring Term

This half term we learned about Castles and Knights. As well as going on our first trip to the Royal Armouries, we did lots of creative writing linked to fairytales and dragon stories. To finish our topic we will be having a castle building day. The children made castles out of recycled materials. In Science we learned about plants and flowers, looking at the parts of a plant as well as planting our own beans. 

We are currently learning about The Three Little Pigs in Topic and Materials in Science. We have linked our writing to the story retelling it in a Big Write. In Science we have tested different materials to see which can float or sink as well as investigating which materials are waterproof. 

Summer Term

During the Summer term we will be learning all about pirates in Topic and animals in Science. We will be learning about Blackbeard, who he was and what he did. We will also be having a pirate themed day to finish off the topic including going on a treasure hunt! We will be visiting a farm looking at all the different animals and their habitats. 

In the last half term, we will be doing a fun topic all about the Seaside! This will involve learning about the differences between the seaside now, and in the past, as well as designing and making our own yummy ice creams!
