Seaside visit to Shoeburyness!
"THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!"
The adults on the visit heard lots of children say this- some of these were even before the children were surprised with ice creams!
We had an amazing day in Shoeburyness watching wind and kite surfers, collecting shells, enjoying a picnic, learning about the local area from Andrew (local expert) and of course our treat- ICE CREAMS!
Welcome to Year 1
Over this term, our work in Year One will be focused
around the topic of ‘Time Travellers’, and we will be exploring this by studying the ‘Olympics’.
During this unit, we will be covering the areas of History, Music, Science, Design & Technology, and Physical Education.
In English we will be retelling the story ‘Lost and Found’ and then writing about our own experiences of losing and finding things .
In Maths we will be learning to write numbers, order numbers create number bonds, addition, subtraction, positions, patterns, length and shapes.
In History children will be looking at changes to the Olympics over the years, and looking at how people lived during those times. They will also be making a timeline of their own lives.
In Music we will be listening to different kinds of music from around the world and using a range of musical instruments to create our own Olympic anthems.
In Science we will be learning about different materials and how they can be used.
In Design & Technology we will be using our knowledge of materials to make an Olympic stadium.
In Physical Education the children will be working on improving their throwing and catching skills, and playing games that involve hitting a ball.
