Your child’s journey through Year 1
Take One Picture Week
As part of Take One Picture Week, Year 1 got hands on and creative making papier mache planets.
We took part in a drum workshop with a professional drummer and formed our own samba band!
RE Day – Islam
This RE day we looked at Islam for the first time. We learnt about the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and why he was important. We explored why the Qur’an was an important book for Muslims. And we heard some stories from the Islamic faith. We enjoyed exploring the artifacts and objects, especially wearing traditional dress.
On Friday we kicked off our World of Books topic with a Wow Day all about Rockets and Man on the Moon, A Day in the Life of Bob. We imagined our own space adventure before building rockets out of boxes and paper. It was a challenge to build a paper rocket, but we worked hard and were very pleased with our results. We finished the day by sending our rockets up into space.
Dora the Explorer
We’ve been learning about maps by making giant maps of the playground for Dora the Explorer!
Senses in Science
We’ve been exploring our senses in science. We took part in an experiment to see if we could still taste the flavour of crisps when we were blindfolded and when we could not smell!
This RE day we talked about belonging to different types of families, both our own at home and as part of wider church families. We looked at artifacts and listened to stories from Judaism, Islam, Christianity and Hinduism.
Victorian Wash Day
We found out that life was hard for Victorian children (but we also had lots of fun!).
We love Maths!
Every day we do fun, practical maths activities in Year 1.
