'Success for all, in all we do'

Year 1 Blog- 9th October 2020

It has been another busy week in Y1! As part of their science lesson, the children have been learning how to collect and record data about the weather. Each day they have been visiting our beautiful new outdoor classroom/garden, to make observations about what types of weather they can see and feel!

During their art lessons, they learnt all about the artist Vincent Van Gogh and  studied and discussed a number of his famous paintings which often feature skies. They chose their favourite and represented it with paint!

This week, their new focus text was launched, 'The Wizard of Oz'. On Tuesday, some of the characters from the book must have travelled along the yellow brick road through the year one classrooms, as lots of their possessions were left behind! The children spotted some silvery, sparkly shoes, a witch's hat, a shiny piece of clothing, a dog, a blue dress and some fur! All of the children were very excited about the discovery and were eagerly trying to predict who the visitors were! We will continue to read this book and it use it as a basis for writing for the rest of the half term.

Last week, the children wrote some impressive poems about autumn on National Poetry Day. There were so many fantastic ones to choose from, but please find below a selection of children reading theirs aloud.

Have a lovely weekend and we are looking forward to another exciting week!
