Welcome to Year 1 Class 2017-2018!
Umberslade Farm visit
We had a lovely day at the farm meeting and handling lots of different animals and learning about their care.
We looked at the work of Gustav Klimt and used mirrors to create
these self portraits in his style.
We decorated the background with lots of detail and to finish added metallic collage.
In Design Technology Year 1 have enjoyed making their puppets from socks. They came up with a really fun variety of designs and thought carefully to add appropriate features.
The Great Fire of London
Year 1 have been learning about the Great Fire of London that took place in 1666.
They created vibrant pictures using a sponging technique and with silhouettes of buildings you can see the dramatic burning scene that would have been visible at the time.
We have been looking at the signs of Autumn which inspired us to write about
Autumn in our literacy lessons.
Purple4Polio Crocus Planting
Year 1 really enjoyed taking their part in this Rotary event, part of their
campaign to eradicate polio.
Giraffes Can't Dance
We looked at the story "Giraffes Can't Dance" then wrote about something we enjoy doing.
Our writing is displayed on our collaged giraffe heads which make for a striking display.
The Three Little Pigs
We looked at this traditional tale in literacy.
This is our display of collaged characters, "Wanted" posters and character speech bubbles. You will also notice our storyboard, made up of symbols which we use as prompts
to help us re-tell the story.
You will see we have also been thinking about connectives.
