Our trip to Weston-Super-Mare
Happy New Year!
This term's topic is called ‘Toy Story’. This is a History led topic. We will be exploring what toys were like in the past and how they are similar and different to our own toys. We will also be thinking about how we can find out about the past.
In Science we will be thinking about materials. We will think about what toys now and in the past are/were made from. We will think about what the best material would be to make a waterproof coat for a toy.
In PE we are going to make up a dance based on the characters from the film 'Toy Story'.
In English we are going to write lists and captions, learn the story Traction Man, write our own story, write some instructions and make up our own poems.
We will be having lots of fun. Look out for photos and updates here.
What were toys like in the past?
We looked at some old toys that we borrowed from the museum. We played with them. We decided we liked quite a lot of the toys and actually had some of them ourselves at home and realised old and new toys can be similar as well as different. Some of the toys were actually from the past and some were replicas.
We wanted to find out what material would be best to make Traction Man a new diving suit so we planned an experiment to find out. We were looking for waterproof materials. We predicted which material would be the best and then tested each one.
Welcome to Year One!
Welcome to our Year One website page.
We will be adding lots of pictures and useful documents as the year progresses,
so please keep checking for any updates!
This term, our topic in Year One is 'Once Upon a Time'.
We will be learning all about castles, listening to and writing our own
traditional stories, creating a Three Little Pigs dance,
designing and making gingerbread men alongside
lots of other exciting things!
Our role-play area this term is a fairy tale castle.
We are looking forward to children dressing up as fairy tale characters
and acting out those traditional stories.
Later in the term we will be visiting a real castle
and dressing up in our favourite costumes!
As always, if you have any questions, please just ask!

Welcome back to the Summer Term
This term in Year One, our theme is....
Stone Girl, Bone Girl
Alongside our classwork this term, we will be really busy finding out about Mary Anning. Who is she and why it is so important that we remember her? We launched our theme this term with an exciting fossil hunt around the school. After the fossil hunt, we used tooth picks to excavate chocolate chips out of chocolate cookies. Once we had excavated them, we could eat them! Take a look at our pictures...
Happy New Year!
