Home Learning
Please find below the links to the videos for home learning. 


This half term our topic is 'Marvellous Me'. We will be reading a range of stories based on what makes us special and we will use these to help us when we are writing.

We will focus on saying the sentence out loud and writing it using our Fred fingers. We are especially working on including every sound within each word and writing our letters correctly on the line. 

In Maths we are focusing on numbers to 20, looking at more and less, comparing numbers, ordering and partitioning tens and ones. We will also be learning how to count on and subtraction. 


In Science this half term we are learning about the four Seasons. We will learn which months fall into which season, know the two different types of trees; deciduous and evergreen, know what happens to flowers throughout the seasons, know what happens to animals and weather in the different seasons and know what we wear for each season. 


In Art this half term we are learning about the artist Georges Seurat and looking at his famous paintings of landscapes. We will focus on pointillism and having a go at our own landscape using the pointillism technique.

Senses Day
Year 1 had a wonderful day last week learning about Our 5 Senses. They tasted new flavours including, sour lemons, bitter dark chocolate and salty crisps, there were some funny facial expressions made when these were being tasted! We also carried out an experiment with bread!
We also smelt some different smells including rosemary, cinnamon and tea tree. 
The children had a fabulous time exploring different textures including, shaving foam, ice, corn flour and water. 
The children had fun making their own musical instruments and learnt about hearing and they played 'Pin the tail on the unicorn' and had fun with glow sticks in a dark tent to learn about sight. 
It was a great day had by all!
