Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Miss Bush is the class teacher and Mrs Smith is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class 1 news, pictures of things that we've done and more.

Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.

 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 1. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Topic:

Off to the Seaside!

 

 

 

For the summer term, we will be learning about our local seaside! We will find out all about Barnaby Bear's holiday to Bournemouth and Poole, looking at the key human and physical features of our local coastline. We will then go back over 100 years to the Victorian era. We will investigate what the seaside was like during these times and how it has changed today. For our Brilliant Beginning, we created our own Seaside Aquariums and Ice Creams. For our Fantastic Finale, we will go on a visit to Bournemouth Beach. We will visit a Victorian Seaside Museum and the Aquarium!

 

Fire, Fire!

 

We have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. For our Brilliant Beginning, we travelled back in time to 1666. We became doctors, bakers, priests, shoemakers and bankers in London. We went on a journey with Samuel Pepys and his maid to when he discovered the Great Fire. Luckily, we escaped unharmed and helped put the fire of out with water from the River Thames. Here we are at Pudding Lane - where the fire started!

 

 

 

 

 

We have learnt how the fire started, what caused it to spread so quickly and investigated how effective the fire brigade was during this time. We found out about Samuel Pepys, who wrote a diary during the fire, and we created our own Pudding Lane, by constructing 3D model houses.

 

 

 

An Island Home

 

Our previous topic was called 'An Island Home'. We learnt all about the Isle of Struay (Isle of Coll) - the home of Katie Morag. We looked at features of an island, using maps and aerial images to gather information and comparing the island to Sway. For our Brilliant Beginning, we went on an imaginary adventure to Scotland. We made our own 3D maps, designed our own tartan and made some delicious Scottish shortbread.

                                

 

     

 

 

Toys

 

Before Christmas, our topic was called 'Toys'. We compared toys from the past to the toys we have now. We visited a Toy Museum to find out more about Victorian Toys. We were surprised at how different some of the toys were, yet some were still exactly the same as those we play with today! We made our own peg dolls and spinners. We made our own festive winding toys to present at our Christmas Elves Workshop!

                                                                 

                                                                            

 

 

Art

In Art, we have been learning all about colour! We have looked at work by Mondrian and Kandinsky. Here is an example of their work...

We then had a go at making our own!

 

         

 

 

Class Country

Our class country is France. We have been learning about famous landmarks in Paris and counting to ten in French. We have also been learning a French nursery rhyme about a green mouse!
