Big thanks to Charlotte for raising the issue of single-use plastics in our kitchen. After a few emails this practice has now been stopped. A suggestion box is on order to make it easier for our amazing pupils to let us know their ideas for making changes for the better!!

Year 1 Learning Overview - Spring 2 2018

What are we learning?

This half term our Topic Theme is ‘Moon Zoom’, and our learning in all subjects will be linked to this.

As Geographers we will be looking at physical features on Earth and trying to spot similar features on other planets using Google Earth and images captured using the Mars Rover.

As Scientists we will be learning all about the planets in our solar system, investigating how to create a rocket, and researching astronauts.

As Artists we will be creating sculptures of space crafts using junk modelling, designing moon buggies, and using clay to create alien sculptures.

In addition:

In English we will reading a variety of stories about space and aliens, these are Way Back Home, Sydney Stella and the Moon and Bob Man on the Moon. We will use adjectives and conjunctions (when, if, that, because, or and but) to expand our sentences. We will also be looking at grammatical patterns and learning about different sentence types: statements, exclamations, questions and commands.

In Maths we will be covering mass, volume & capacity, numbers to 100, money, time.

In Mandarin we will be recapping our learning about colours and using this to describe different foods we will be learning about.  

In Philosophy for Children (P4C) we will continue to develop our thinking skills by asking questions and making assumptions. We will be making choices based on our opinions, and respectfully listening to and responding to others.

In Music we will continue to practise the recorder and use different percussion instruments.

In R.E we will be learning about Christianity and focusing on the celebration of Easter.
