Spring Term

All Around the World

We have started our new topic this term and have begun our jet packed adventure by visiting the UK, Australia and China.

 

 

The United Kingdom

We discovered famous landmarks around the UK for our topic launch, carefully drawing places such as the London Eye, Stone Henge and the Angel of the North.

As well as  following instructions to build some key landmarks out of our building bricks. Take a look at our Stone Henge and Blackpool Tower models!

Our Year 1 Children helped us to identify the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. Successfully sorting out their place on the map, symbol and flag.

Australia

Next we jetted off to our next destination...Australia. Here we learnt about the different territories and cities as well as all the strange and somewhat dangerous animals that live here.

 

We built our own Sydney Opera House, working as a team to create each part and carry all the building blocks needed.

China

Our next stop took us to China just in time to celebrate Chinese New Year and the year of the pig. We made sure our classroom was ready with beautifully decorated lanterns and enjoyed taking part in many different Chinese traditions.

Pirate Maths Day

We really enjoyed our pirate maths day this term. We helped Captain Sally Morgan solve some tricky maths problems as well as looking at pirate themed 2D and 3D shapes.

 

Autumn Term

Spaceship Crash Landing!

We were very surprised to find a strange crash site suddenly appear on our school field. We were not sure how or when it got there as it had not been seen earlier in the morning!

We were fabulous detectives and spent the rest of the morning discovering and investigating the crash landing scene.

Our alien visitors inspired us the read the book 'Beegu'. A story all about a lost alien who crash lands on planet Earth. Could our alien have been Beegu herself??!!!

Our story Beegu and our alien visitors have inspired us to do lots of creative writing. From describing Beegu herself, story mapping and alien making to diary and letter writing.
