Review of Summer 1

Year 1 have had a brilliant start to the Summer term! The children have worked extremely hard and have taken part in lots of fantastic activities!

We have been looking at the seaside and how it has changed through time. The children have really enjoyed comparing the differences and similarities of the activities you could do at the beach.

In English, we have been looking at a range of different texts. We have looked at non-fiction reports and wrote our own reports about rhinoceroses! We also entered the young writers ‘Safari’ animal poem competitions where the children wrote a poem of their choice about an animal!

In Science, we have been looking at plants and seasonal change. We have looked at the different types of plants and their parts. We spent lots of time in the school garden making observational drawings of the plants growing. We have also made lots of observations of the different weather patterns in Spring. We went on an observational walk around our local area to look for the signs of Spring and record what we found. This was accompanied by us enjoying our snack out in the sun where we were joined by some ducks and geese!

We celebrated and learnt about the King’s coronation and had our own mini coronation, which was followed by crown making with our buddy groups and a picnic lunch with the whole school.

We also enjoyed participating in a tennis session where the children were able to learn new skills and apply these in a variety of different games and challenges.  We ended the term with lots of visits from different religious group leaders who were able to answer many of the children’s questions. In all sessions, the children were very polite, engaged and had very well thought out questions! The visitors to our school were very impressed with the class!
