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 ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ (Monday 3rd June to Friday 5th July 2019)

During this topic we will be exploring and finding out about castles, dragons and knights through reading information books and stories.  We will write stories and letters linked to the stories we have read and research castles and dragons to create information books.

We will also think about gardens and suitable conditions for growing plants through creating a garden.

We will have lots of opportunities to learn about a famous artist and create our work in the same style.

Some highlights of the the topic will include

  • Creating our story book about a dragon
  • Writing information books about castles and dragons
  • Carrying out a science investigation to create a castle garden
  • Art work in the style of the famous artist Paul Klee

Please join us for our Parent workshop on Tuesday 2nd July at 2.30pm.  We will be building a castle! Please bring in lots of junk modelling and other items you may wish to use when making your castle.

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.
