Welcome to Year 1

The children will explore and learn about animals through different narratives. The first half term will focus on 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' by Judith Kerr and 'Snail and the Whale' by Julia Donaldson.
 
 Welcome to Year 1!
  
Spring Term 
 
This term our topic is...
 
'Into the Wild!'
 
This term, our topic is 'Into the Wild!.' This unit will be based on the story of 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' and 'The Snail and the Whale' - the children will explore these fantastic narratives whilst learning about animals all around the world in our science and geography lessons.
 
This term there will be lots of exciting and challenging learning ahead which includes; making sandwiches for a tea party, making silhouette art animal paintings and a trip to Paignton Zoo!
What a busy start to the new year!
 
Wow what a first week back! 
The children have settled perfectly back in to Year 1 life and are all thoroughly excited to see what challenges lie ahead! On Wednesday, the children were shocked to find that the classroom had been destroyed by cheeky monkeys! They left the classroom in a mess - leaving banana skins and turning chairs over! They set us an important challenge of counting bananas and feeding the monkeys the correct amount! In the afternoon, we had a fantastic time making animal silhouette art paintings.
 
From all of us in the Year 1 Team, we hope you had a lovely Christmas and a happy new year!
