September 2019​

It is so lovely to see all the children back in Year 1. They are settling in so well and adapting really well to Year 1. 

​Class Art Project


As a class, Year 1 Maple are working together to create a life-size superhero. We sketched our own designs and as a class have begun to create a Super Scientist. We have been using paper mache to begin to cover mixed recylcling so that eventually we will paint our superhero. This is an ongoing project - keep coming back to see our progress. 

Florence Nightingale 

As part of our Cornerstones Topic - Superheroes, we have been learning about real life superheroes such as doctors, nurses, firefighters, police officers and paramedics. We also learnt about historical heroes such as Florence Nightingale. We talked about how she worked really hard to help hospitals become cleaner so that she could look after the soldiers. 

Throughout our child initiated learning, we have been using role play to learn more about doctors and nurses and pretend to look after our patients. ​Have a look at our new role play area!


Literacy 

Throughout our literacy learning, we have been learning all about the story The Tiger That Came To Tea. We have been learning to write labels, lists and captions as well as retelling and sequencing the story. We worked in teams to use puppets to retell the story together. ​

Art Work​

This week we have learnt all about the artist Matisse and his style of​ painting. He is famous for using bold colours and we used his style to help us to create our own self portraits. We sketched our own and then used pastels to colour them in using smudging add the colour. Have a look! 

Superhero WOW Day 

​​We had a fantastic superhero day completing lots of superhero activities! We created our own superhero logo, made up our own superhero theme song, moved around like superheroes in PE and even went on a superhero hunt around the school and wrote about our favourite superheroes. It was a very busy day! Have a look at some of the pictures...
