Autumn Term Topic
Our Autumn Term topic is all about the environment and it is entitled 'Our World'.
Our aim is to provide the children with a stimulating and enriching learning experience across the curriculum. This may include meeting special visitors, trips in and around the local area as well as further afield and some outdoor learning experiences.
This topic has a Science focus, however the children will still have aspects of Art, History and Geography, for example, taught to provide them with a rich and engaging curriculum experience in school.
The children will be developing their knowledge and understanding about recycling, global warming and animal habitats (to name a few). The children will also get to work with a variety of materials and will be learning how to identify them based on their properties and usage.
In October, the children have had a school visit from two workers at Snuffles Hedgehog Rescue in Four Oaks. They learned lots of interesting facts about hedgehogs and how they can do their part to protect them in their environments. Have a look at some of the pictures from the visit below.
The children were lucky enough to meet a real hedgehog called Aidan!
Writing is a fantastic way for children to express their thoughts, creativity and uniqueness.
It is also an essential way in which children learn to organise ideas and to help them become better readers.
The pdf document attached below is a helpful tool for parents and carers to use at home to help their children's writing progress and develop even further.
The activities suggested in the booklet can be used and applied across all year groups, not just in Year 1.
