Welcome to Year 1

By 20th September 2018Year 1

The children are settling in to their new environment and exploring all of the new changes to the Year 1 classrooms. We have transformed the Year 1 classrooms into the Workshop (Willow), the Wonder Room (Oak) and the Discovery Room (Cherry) but not forgetting the exciting outdoor area.

The children have been carrying out science investigations with a range of resources. They are beginning to use scientific language to become a real scientist. A popular area outside has been the wood work. Children are safely using new skills to build and create models which are secured by nails. Children have been advised to keep their models and build upon these every day. We have been continuing with helicopter stories and introducing more challenging language to make it more interesting to read. They have also looked at the work of Picasso and applied their new knowledge to make famous buildings in the Wonder room.

As the autumnal weather starts to kick in, please can you send in your child’s wellies.
