This half term, Year One are looking at themselves and the surrounding area we live in. Children will be carrying out a local walk around Grange Park to discover any new changes to the estate. We will be engaging in science activities by gaining a greater understanding of ourselves.



Year 1 looked at parts of the human body and we investigated parts of our faces. We looked at each parts purpose. Then we created our self portraits using man made and natural objects.



Below is the homework topic for this half term. The projects and tasks are to be handed back in by 26th October so we can share our learning in class.

Year 1 Class of 2016/17


In Year 1 we have enjoyed lots of learning outside the classroom and through creative projects. We have covered topics about winter wonderlands, wild animals and dinosaurs. Year 1 children have developed in to confident speakers and performers by doing the Christmas show, our Year group assembly and taking part in the Choral Speaking Competition. It has been an energetic and enthusiastic year. The children have all become independent learns with a great Growth Mindset.
