Spring Term 1
We will be learning about using different media to express our ideas and feelings. We began the term by exploring four artists, you can find photos of their investigations on Seesaw. Of the four artists, the children chose to further their learning on the work of Jenny Lambert and Tim Pughs, who are both Welsh artists. Please keep your eyes peeled for some wonderful artwork from Year 1, on seesaw, twitter and even items brought home!
We have had a wonderful time settling into Year 1.
We started the term learning all about The Colour Monster and our feelings. We thought about who cares for us and how we can care for others.
We spoke to some very inspirational people during Inspiring Futures week, including a Nurse, an Engineer and a Member of the British Empire (MBE)!
We then started thinking about shelters that have kept people safe and warm over time and the important features we would need to include in a shelter to keep us warm, safe and dry. We read the book 'Refuge' and thought about the journey that Mary and Joseph took to Bethlehem, then the journey they took with baby Jesus to Egypt, to find refuge.
We have made new friends, learned new skills and have been very busy!
Time for a little rest!

We had a star jump challenge of how many star jumps the children could do in one minute - the highest number was 58.
We also did a running and jumping race and long jump.
A wonderful but tiring Sports Week!!!
Exploring Light and Dark Through Shadow Puppet Theatres- Summer Term A
This term the children have been exploring light and dark. They have become wonderful experimenters and investigators, making predictions and discovering lots of new things about how to make shadows.
The children have worked especially hard on creating their own shadow puppet theatres. This has been done in their independent Bright Idea time. The children have shown excellent team working skills, listening to one another's ideas, taking turns and helping one another. They have also shown fantastic problem solving skills.
Please enjoy these photos of their work.

Welcome back to school and into your Year 1 classroom!
Hello all, we are so looking forward to welcoming you into your new classroom and getting to know you.
We understand that coming back to school will be both exciting and perhaps worrying for some. We will be reminding ourselves about how to keep each other safe through regular handwashing and remembering to use tissues if we need to cough or sneeze.
We will spend time learning and talking about our feelings, and have lots of time to reconnect with our friends who we have missed so much.
Our topic this term is Carnival. We will look at the world famous Notting Hill Carnival and learn about the people who take part, the food, costumes and music. We will also think about Carnivals that are local to us.
