Welcome back after the summer break.
We have been busy getting the new classroom set up for our Year 1 class.
Our topic for this Autumn term is Megastructures. The children will be finding out about the famous buildings in England as well as around the world, by using books and the Internet. They will learn names of continents and countries.
Other focus activities include:
Designing, making and evaluating a mega structure.
Finding out about the history of Belton House.
Drawing and painting a mega structure.
Enjoying dance classes from a PE specialist.
Investigating materials and their properties in our environmental area.
Learning about Islam.
Enjoying music lessons with a focus on rap.
English will be led by Mrs Spencer. Children will be researching famous buildings and creating their own information page.
Later in the term they will listen to and retell traditional tales.
At the end of the term, the class will listen to and perform their own and published poems.
Maths will be led by Miss Cartwright. There will be a big focus on number this term, followed by work on 2D and 3D shapes.
