Our Learning in Autumn 1
Our theme this half- term is 'All about me."
We will be reading stories with familiar settings in English. Our first text is The Tiger Who Came to Tea, we will be writing labels, lists and captions.
In maths we will be start by focusing on place value to 10, this involves sorting groups, ordering numbers. We will then move onto addition and subtraction.
Our RE topic this half-term is God's Plan. We will be learning about the creation story and the story of Noah's Ark.
In History this half term we will be learning all about the history of our local area. We will be looking at Hunslet, Middleton and Leeds and how our transport has changed.
Within our science lessons, we will be looking at our human bodies. We will take part in lots of investigations to help learn about our five senses. Finally in Art the children will be drawing self-portraits.
Year 1 have been learning about their 5 senses. Today they went on a walk around school to see what they could see and hear. They then went back to class and recorded their findings.
Year 1 had a visitor in class to talk to us about Road safety. They talked about things to look out for and how to stay safe when near the road.
Year 1 have been learning about the Creation Story in RE. We re-enacted the story using props to help us retell the story. We then reflected on the story and discussed what the story means to us.
Year 1 have been getting creative when thinking about their favourite thing in God’s World. The children used paints and play dough to show me their favourite thing.
Year 1 have been learning how to write labels. In this lesson they wrote labels for their new classroom.
