Welcome to our Year 1 class. We have now settled in and are looking forward to an exciting year ahead.
During 'International Week' all classes focussed on a particular country and then set up their own market stall to teach others about what they had learnt. Year 1's focus was Spain. We learnt all about Spain - location, language, currency, culture, food, famous people and events. We made our own Picasso paintings and enjoyed dancing to Spanish music and tasting some authentic Spanish dishes.
Why does it get dark earlier in winter?
We have had lots of fun exploring the world around us. During our science topic we have been observing changes across the seasons, investigating and describing the weather associated with each. We recorded our observations and performed simple tests, gathering our data to help us in answering our own questions and how day length varies.
We wrote some fantastic winter poems and stories using the information gained.
