After learning about who lives in a castle and what jobs they might do we then learnt about knights and started to design our own shields.
We learnt what a coat of arms was and what the different colours and symbols meant.
After reading these two stories we discussed the setting and characters and noticed similarities.
We studied photographs of castles and talked about the shapes and colours we could see.
We read 'The kiss that missed' and 'A knight and a dragon' last week. We had lots of discussion time about these stories and wrote some short sentences explaining what we liked/disliked about them.
This week we have begun retelling the stories using drama, below are some photos of us pretending to be knights and dragons!
Welcome to Year one!
Below you will find some useful documents and links to help you understand what we will be covering over the next year.
Our topic for this half term is called 'Once upon a time'. We will read lots of traditional stories with this classic opening and review and discuss these. We will study the characters and settings in the stories which will lead us into learning about castles and the medieval time period. Below you will find the learning objectives that will be covered during this learning process.
