Year 1 Autumn Update

It’s been a busy start to Year 1 and the children have settled in beautifully.  We have enjoyed learning all about our sensational senses and explored sight, sound, touch, smell and taste in our science learning time.  As part of our English work, we explored a whole range of exciting words to describe the tasty treats that ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ ate and watched patiently as our class caterpillars grew into beautiful butterflies.  It was a very special moment when we released them outside on the school field!

We really enjoyed Tanzania Day.  We designed our own mud houses and also necklaces inspired by African jewellery.  We had fun sharing traditional African folk stories by watching some animated Tinga Tinga Tales too.  We were proud of all the Tanzania facts we had learned throughout the day when we answered lots of the questions in Mrs Rosso’s whole school Kahoot quiz in the afternoon.

The half- term has whizzed by, filled with lots of super learning.  We can’t wait for what comes next!
