Year 1 Frogs Class Update Term 1 Week 7

What a busy but exciting term we've had!

The children have settled excellently into Year One and have really impressed us with their hard work and determination. It has been such a fun term learning all about our friends and producing some fantastic work around our topic.

In English, we focused on using our new Year One writing rules to ensure we produce super work. We even wrote a whole booklet all about ourselves! We've focused on lists, captions and labels and worked very hard to write our very own version of the Three Little Pigs.

In Science we learnt all about our bodies, from our body parts to our senses. The Senses Hunt was a firm favourite in Frogs class! We tasted different foods and then walked around the school to see what we could see, hear, touch and smell. We also looked at the environment around us and discussed the changes that happen to our environment during the season of Autumn - comparing them to the other seasons. Our welly walk helped us spot Autumnal things in the park near school.

In Art we sketched and painted self-portraits of ourselves, as well as exploring leaf and bark rubbings. The highlight of our DT was designing and making a house for the Three Little Pigs!

We ended the term on a positive with Giraffes having extra playtime due to gaining the most table points! Who will it be next term? We also recognised and celebrated the values of teamwork and cooperation and know that when we work together as a class great things can happen and be achieved - through this, we have put lots of marbles in our jar towards our first class treat!

We are now looking forward to a busy second term and doing all things Christmassy in December!
