Year 1 Hub

Here you can find out more about what we’ve been up to in our Year 1 classes and see what is planned over coming weeks. Don’t forget to take a look at our news stories in main news section too!

Our latest topic is ‘Sounds of the Land’  – Monday 7th October to Friday 25th October 2019

The children will become musicians themselves and work together as a year group to create and  perform a musical story based on the ‘Greedy Zebra’ by Mwenye Hadithi.  This will be achieved through the discovery of many kinds and sources of sound, musical instruments and body percussion.

Additionally, children will have the opportunity to investigate and ask questions about different sounds and explore creating new ones.

Some highlights of the the topic will include

  • Special writing about the ‘Greedy Zebra’
  • Retells of stories from other cultures
  • Musical performances
  • Songs

We are holding a Year 1 Parent Workshop on Tuesday 22nd October at 2.30pm – Come and join your child to make a junk modelling musical instrument.  Please bring in some junk modelling items to use on the day and any other bits and pieces to create a fantastic instrument with. 

Please see the attached link for this half term’s Home Learning Challenge.  This will also be sent out via Parentmail and a paper copy sent home with each child.
