We hope you all had a lovely Summer break.
This half-term our topic in Year 1 is The Weather and seasons.
In English, we will have a cine-literacy topic, where the children will watch the film 'Frozen' to inspire their writing. The children will begin with lots of speaking and listening and role-play activities to develop a secure understanding of the plot, the main events and the characters. They will then write descriptions of their favourite characters and the setting, using a range of sentence types they have learnt throughout the year and considering their senses. The class will then use the Talk for Writing method to all learn to retell the story together.
In Geography, the children will be investigating different types of weather. They will learn to locate the Arctic and Antarctic.
In Art, the children will create their own self-portraits.
They will look closely at a variety of self-portraits and focus on different features.
In Science, we will learn about animals including humans and seasonal change. We will focus on a range of environments.
Keep checking back to see some of our good work.
