Year 1

 Welcome to Year 1! 

 

Our whole school topic this half term is 'Grand Designs'. 

 

We are going to be travelling the world in Geography and visiting different countries to learn about famous landmarks such as the Colosseum, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Great Wall of China. 

 

In English we are going to explore the ways that authors create interesting settings in books with a main focus on the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz. We will design our own settings to use in our writing. 

 

Children have PE on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday so please make sure children have their PE kits in school on these days. Spellings are set on a Monday and spelling quizzes will take place the following Monday. Maths homework is set on a Friday and due in the following Friday. 

 

 

We had a fantastic time when our visitor came! We all worked together to make a bridge that was as long as the hall!

We have been learning about the human and physical features of Egypt. We looked at Egypt on Google Earth and created collages based on what we could see.
