A Few of our Favourite Things
We have had a very busy term settling into Year 1 and starting our journey through our topic of 'A few of our favourite things'.
We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing the story of 'The Everywhere Bear'. We have learnt to use adjectives to describe him, nouns to label what he has seen and verbs to describe what he has been doing. We have also learnt to sequence the story by using a story map which we then used to retell the story in our own words.
We have also enjoyed creating wonderful pieces of art and beautiful displays around the school.
We have linked together our learning in Geography and Science too!
We began by learning about the parts of our bodies and how we use our senses to explore the world around us. Then we learnt about the names of different materials and did some detective work by looking at our houses and what they have been made from. Finally, we tied all of this together by going on a walk around Northway. We thought about what we could hear and smell, looking carefully at what was around us and talked about our local community. We also came back and mapped our route, thinking about 'human' and 'physical' features.
At the end of term, we celebrated 'Harvest' and 'Autumn' by creating poems and pieces of art. We thought about how lucky we were to have food and made donations to the local Community Food bank.
