Well done to all Year 1 children for their efforts at our sports afternoon yesterday, they all had great fun and put in 100% effort, thank you to all parents who came along to support their children and make it an enjoyable event! This week in Year 1 we have started our new science enquiry ‘Amazing Animals’ where we are focussing on the different types of animals and their habitats and structure. We have also started a new text type in Literacy where we are looking at fantasy stories, we have read the story the Gruffalo and have been looking at and describing his character. We will be creating our own stories based around this over the next couple of weeks. In PE we have gymnastics coach who comes in on a Monday to work on basic gymnastic skills with the class. We are also learning invasions skills and games on our Friday PE sessions. In Art the children will complete their printing skills work then we will be focussing on the skill of textiles, where we will learn bout joining materials and eventually create our own fantasy animal puppets. Keep checking our blog for updates on our enquiry over the next few weeks!
