Welcome to the Robin's blog page. It has been really nice to meet all the new year 1 children. The children have settled in nicely to the new routines and expectations of year 1. 

Term 1

The topic this term is 'Splendid Skies'. The children have covered various parts of the curriculum, such as weather, seasons, maps and continents. We have talked about our families, rules and our place within community. ICT was fun, the children even learnt some really big words such as 'algorithm' and 'execute'. The children particularly enjoyed looking at different objects within a church and talking about where their special place is. Next term we are hoping to visit a local church to see the objects we looked at in real life. 

The one thing the children thoroughly enjoyed doing this term was making kites. We planned, made and evaluated them. The children then got chance to go outside and test to see if they would fly. They had so much fun and was perfect weather conditions for doing this!


Term 2

The topic this term is 'Enchanted Woodlands'. The children have enjoyed taking part in lots of outdoor activities. They have made tree boggarts, dens and sculptures during DT and art lessons. They have also made woodland crowns using natural materials and wrote instructions on how to make them. As part of our RE learning the children visited a local church where they got to look around at different features and completed a hunt worksheet.

Towards the end of term the children have been spending lots of time practising their Christmas performance 'Ralph the Reindeer'. The children have been trying really hard to remember their lines and the songs. During the last week there will be lots of celebrations to look forward to as they are going to be making Christmas cards, calenders, having their Christmas party and visiting the Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime. 



Over the last couple of weeks we have been doing lots of art work. We have painted swimming pools and made picture collages in the style of David Hockney. We have spent lots of time researching London and looking at the Queen. We had a huge surprise during an English lesson when the Queen left all her knickers laying around in our classroom. In maths we have also been finding half and quarters of shapes and objects.
