This half term has been very busy in Year 1. We have been finding out about Autumn time. We have been on an Autumn walk
and collected lots of different leaves, which we used to print Autumn trees and make faces. We also enjoyed singing at the

our class prize.

about the Gruffalo by one of our favourite authors Julia Donaldson. Congratulations to our class winner Cole who made a
great Big Friendly Giant.
Summer 1st Half Term
We have started this half term by creating some fantastic art work. We have learnt how to weave using shades of blue
to represent the sea. Then we added our finishing touches using felt to create sea creatures to glue onto the background.
It took a great deal of patience but the results are fantastic!
Blackpool Zoo Trip 2018
We were very excited about our trip to Blackpool Zoo this term. We had a great day, we saw lots of the African and Asian animals that we have been learning about. We also learnt about the Rainforest and which animals live there and we got to hold a giant hissing cockroach. Finally we enjoyed looking at the life size dinosaur models.
In plants week we really enjoyed making our garden based on the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We recycled wood,
bubble wrap, wool, cardboard and even an old cap to make it. Some children made gardens at home congratulations to
Jack Corey who was our class winner.
We have enjoyed lots of different activities this week involving science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We loved
the Lego workshop where we learnt how to make models and programme them to move, make sounds, make pictures and
change colour. We also enjoyed an afternoon of mathematical challenges which involved cracking codes, making 3D shapes
and solving calculations.
