Year One - McNaughton and Dodd

What we have been learning about in Autumn Two


As we come to the end of our first term in Year 1 we would like to celebrate how far the children have come and how much we have loved watching them learn and grow.

In English we joined the whole school in exploring the book Journey, thinking about the adventures we could go on with our own magic crayons. In Maths we have become Part-part whole experts and in Science we have learnt about the 5 senses and the different parts of the body. We have explored how different religions represent light through Hanukah, Diwali and Christmas in our RE lessons. During PSHE lessons we have thought about what makes a good friend and how situations may impact us. In our DT lessons we designed and built toy car garages and in Music we have learnt new a song. We linked our History learning with our English lessons and finished the topic by writing a diary entry for Guy Fawkes. In our Geography lessons we explored our local area using google maps to find our school. In Computing we used iPads to create digital greetings cards and in PE we have been practising our Athletics and Fitness skills.

Our Wow moments of the half term were the Mini Olympics morning and the Santa Dash. What adventures will Spring 1 bring?


What we have been learning in Autumn One 


We cannot believe that it is already the end of our first half term in Year 1. We have loved being back in school, welcoming new classmates and learning with our new teachers.

In English we enjoyed exploring the book Tuesday after an invasion of puddles and lily pads in the classrooms. In Maths we have been counting to 20 and using our shape and positional language/vocabulary to describe what we see.  We have investigated materials in our Science lessons and learnt how Sikhs, Christians and Jewish people celebrate Harvest during RE lessons. During PSHE lessons we have thought about how we keep ourselves safe and healthy and practised our drawing skills to create portraits and self portraits during our Art lessons. In Music we have split the classes into halves to learn a new song as well as learning Makaton to sign along with our favourite songs.

Our Wow moment of the half term was the delivery of new resources for our outdoor learning environment. Some of us helped Miss Pike build the frames but most importantly we all went on adventures in the boxes the deliveries came in.  We cannot wait to see what adventures Autumn 2 brings.
