Our Classroom Environment

Year 1 - Curriculum Highlights - Autumn Term 2021

This term, our topic has been 'Help'! 

In History we learnt about the Great Fire of London and about the sinking of the Titanic. We thought about what life was like in the past for people who needed help. We compared that to what life is like now.

In Geography we learnt the names of the seven continents. We also found out where all the Earths volcanoes are and what happens during an Earthquake.

In Music we learnt the song 'Help' by the Beatles. Much to our parents suprise, we have all become fans and regularly ask our teachers to play this music to us. 

In Art we thought about Superheroes and looked at the art of Roy Lichtenstein. We had fun creating our own art using the ben day process. 

In RE we thought about what different Religions do to help people. We also learnt the story of the Good Samaritan and the crying camel. 

In PSHE we thought about what it means to be a good friend and how it's important to remember that we have lots of things in common and lots of things that are different too. 

In Science we learnt about materials and their names. We thought about how we use materials to help us make lots of every day items. 

In Computing we have begun to think about algorithms. We have learnt how helpful it is to give clear instructions to our friend or to a robot. 

In DT we have made strong structures. We linked this to our science work and thought about which materials would help us to make strong structures too. 

Year 1 - Trips and Visits - Autumn Term 2021

This term, as part of the topic 'Help!' we enjoyed a day trip to Magna. While we were there we learnt about the four elements: earth, wind, fire and air. We thought about the emergencies caused by the four elements and the people who might help us to deal with these emergencies.

It was our first trip out of school because of Covid-19. We had such a lovely day and all of the adults who came with us were so proud of how well we had all behaved.
