Year 1 get creative!

This term, Year 1 have loved being polar explorers and learning about the North and South Poles. The children have enjoyed finding out about the different animals there and what it would be like to live in the polar lands. As part of our art project this half term, we learnt about the Inuit artist Kenojuak Askevak. The children used her artwork to help inspire them when creating their own clay tile.

They also explored other ways of manipulating clay and plasticine and created some amazing animal and Christmas inspired mini sculptures.

The children performed wonderfully in their Christmas play this term and they loved showing you all their enthusiasm with their singing. Thank you everyone for coming along and supporting them.

The Year 1 Team would like to wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
