Autumn Term in Year 1

Year 1 have had a brilliant Autumn Term. For the first half term we transitioned between Reception and Year 1 with choosing activities as well as our focused work. In Autumn 2 we have been working very hard doing our work and our lessons as a whole class.

Our topic for Autumn 1 was 'Our World'. We enjoyed a trip around our local area and learnt all about trees and birds we might find in 'Our World'.

We painted trees, made clay birds and at home we created our very own bird projects which were fabulous!

Making our clay birds.

Here are some of our bird projects:

 Year 1 learnt about Dementia UK when we raised money for them by wearing blue. Mrs Butler came to talk to us about the charity and who they help.

 As part of learning about 'Our World' we learnt about our rights and we took part in UNICEF's World's Largest Lesson, finding out about where our food comes from.

We also painted some self-portraits in the style of Chuck Close.

In Autumn 2, our topic was 'Toys'. We have enjoyed finding out about toys from the past, especially when we went on our trip to Cannock Chase Toy Museum.

Here is some of our writing about our trip to the toy museum:

We asked our families about the toys they liked to play with and to end our topic we designed and made our own puppets.

Well done for all your hard work this term Year 1! Have a super holiday.
