Autumn 1

What a fantastic start to Year 1 we have had! The children have really settled well and have found their feet in the classroom.  They all have a great understanding of where things are kept and the classroom has really become their own.


In Science we have begun to look at the season autumn and the different changes we have seen in this season. We have also begun to record the weather so we can make a comparison with all of the other season throughout the year. We have also been looking at materials and their uses. We went on a material hunt around the whole school and found lots of different materials.


In English we have been practicing our writing skills and making sentences. We have done lots of performance poetry and explored different ways we can share our poems. We created a shared acrostic poem and used our senses to create some very interesting poems about the classroom!


In RE the children have been exploring belonging in different religious groups. We explored how we belong in our own lives, with our families and as part of the school community. We also enjoyed learning about Harvest and the Jewish festival of Sukkot.


In history we explored old toys. The children had such a great time playing with their own and other toys- it was fantastic to see the care the children took when handling the fragile toys from family members. We made lots of comparisons between our toys and older toys and even linked to our science and looked at what materials the toys were made from.
