Art Club 2017

We have really enjoyed making these winter art collages in Art Club.  First we created the background by mixing different shades of colour to create a glowing moon effect.  After this we added silhouettes of night time objects to show off our beautiful paint effects. The next Art Club will begin on Monday 8th January 2018

Art club started this month with an Autumn theme.  First we looked closely at the leaves, particularly at their colours and shapes.  After this we all chose a leaf to sketch.  We noticed that they were all really different! Some had smooth edges and some were rough and jagged.Later we added lots of interesting detail in between the veins of the leaves and then finished them off with a wash of watercolour paint.  We are hoping to use them in our autumn hanging mobiles,  so look out for them around school.

Autumn Term 2 2017

What a great start to the year we have had!  All the children have worked so hard and we have been learning lots.  In SCIENCE we have been looking at animals and humans.  This has included us naming their body parts as well as trying to work scientifically by grouping and categorising animals.  Many of our Y1s are still struggling with the fact that we are animals too!  Here are some useful websites to help your child with their scientific understanding:


In LITERACY we have been trying to write perfect sentences about hedgehogs and we have produced our own class information book about animals that live in the UK.   We have also looked at question sentences.  Our children thought of some great sentences they could ask and even went on to write them too.  We did so much more on top of all this!

Next term, our literacy will be based on the book: This is the Bear and the Scary Night!

    In Maths: we will be investigating 2D and 3D shapes and practising our addition and subtraction skills.

PE days are Tuesday and Friday: Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school on these days.  Please DO NOT send your child to school in earrings on these days for their own safety, thank you.
