Amazing Animals!

This half term, whilst getting to know how Year 1 works, the children will become immersed in learning about all types of animals, great and small! 


We will be using the sounds that we have learnt in Phonics to label different animals and list what animals can be found at the 'Supermarket Zoo'!

In Science we will explore how animals can be grouped into different categories, such as amphibians, reptiles, birds, fish and mammals. Whilst exploring what puts animals in these different groups, we will look closely at them and will develop our sketching skills whilst observing. 


We are looking forward to hearing what animal facts the children can share with us. 


Please take a look at our half termly overview on the Curriculum page of the website to find out more about what we will be learning. 



Highlight of the Week!


This week in Year 1, we have been learning all about different animals! In science, we have been grouping animals into mammals, fish, birds and reptiles. We also went on an animal hunt to find the animals hiding in the vegetable patches! We have been doing some excellent math using ladybirds to help with our doubling and halving.

You can imagine the shock we had when we came to school on Tuesday morning and there were muddy footprints all over the table!


We tried to work out what animals the prints could have come from. What do you think? 


Mrs Cave offered to check the CCTV for us to see what had happened. 

Look who was on the loose!

We did some investigating to find out which animals had been let loose in our classroom!

Highlight of the week!


For Roald Dahl Day, Year 1 read the Enormous Crocodile. We all went outside and listened to Miss Sturt and Miss Ferguson read the story to us! The children really enjoyed all the activities that were based around the Enormous Crocodile. We made our own crocodiles, we counted crocodile teeth and cut out sharp, pointy teeth for our crocodiles! 

Together, we grow our love for learning.
