My First Day in Year 1

Autumn term 1 

This half term we have been enjoying our Out and About topic. We have been learning all about nature and have had lots of opportunities to explore our school nature area! 





In our English lessons we have been learning all about poetry, using Out and About by Shirley Hughes as our class book. We have looked at poems about different seasons and nature, paying close attention to the language used by the poet and how this makes us feel. We even had a go at writing our own poems using what we've learned!

In science we have been learning all about plant and trees! We have been observed the plants and trees in our school grounds, planted own own cress seeds and even dissected flowers to look at their different parts. 





In geography we have been looking at different types of maps. We had a go at creating our own maps including a map of the school and aerial maps of the classrooms.
