Welcome to Year 1 - Bluebell Class!
Miss Lane Mrs Redshaw
(Class Teacher) (Teaching Assistant)
We are always happy to help, at the end of each day (Except Wednesdays) we are on the door and available for any questions or queries but please wait for all children to be collected.
In Term 4 our topic will be 'Wriggle and Crawl'.
Grab your coat and pooter - we're going out and about on a minibeast hunt!
This term is all about things that wriggle and crawl! In Science we will be learning about how to identify and name a variety of common animals as well as identifying which animals are carnivores, omnivores or herbivores.
In Geography we will be learning how to make simple maps using basic symbols. In Art and Design Technology we will be designing and creating a wonderful habitat fit for a minibeast!
In Term 3 our topic was 'Rio de Vida!
During our topic we explored the vibrant and exciting country of Brazil! In Geography we explored both it's human and physical features as well as comparing it to our country.
In Art and Design technology we used a range of materials to help design and create masks that were fit for carnial.
In Science we learned to identify and describe a range of materials and their properties.
In Term 2 our topic was 'Splendid Skies' where we learnt about the weather, different locations within the UK, identifying the four different seasons and conducting Science investigations.
We imagined floating high above land and sea on a bed of clouds, silently sweeping by on a billowing breeze. Back down to earth, we took a walk outdoors. But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat? How do we know what the weather will be like today? We found out!
In Science we identified and compared the four different seasons as well as describing and explaining how the weather changes.
In History we learnt about Sir Francis Beaufort and the important invention of flight. We also took a trip to Manston RAF Museum to take a closer look!
In Geography we identified the different types of weather spread across the UK.
In Term 1 we learnt about the past, present and the future. Our topic was called 'Memory Box' so we predominantly spent our time looking at the past and sharing our own memories.
In English, we read a story called Grace and Family which showed how families can be different and how our family members can sometimes live in different places.
In Science we identified, drew and named different parts of the body as well as linking them to the senses. What do we use to help us hear? What do we use to help us see? Taste? Feel?
In History we explored and learnt about the 'past' and compared things from when we were babies to now. What did we used to play with as a baby? Do we play with the same thing now? We also looked at different forms of transport and thought about what was invented first and what are newer types of transport.
In Art we painted self-portraits and family portraits as well as looking at family paintings by famous artists. We really enjoyed decorating our own memory boxes so that we can put out very special and important items in there including baby blankets, our favourite toys and sweets as well as our baby clothes.
We believe in positive praise and always seek opportunities to reward the children. The children start the day on the “sunflower” and if they do something special they are rewarded by being put onto the “honey pot”. They then receive a sticker and share their good work with the class.
Here are some useful resources:
