Friday 21st January 2022

Year 1 have made a great start to the term with their new topic ‘Frozen Planet’. In English lessons the children have been enjoying the book ‘The Emperor’s Egg’ and completing a variety of writing activities based on the book; these have included writing descriptive sentences about penguins and composing their own poems.

Images of icy Antarctic landscapes by the artist David McEown inspired the children to create their own chalk pastel images using a palette of colours including pink, purple and grey to convey the dramatic sky.

In science, Year 1 have moved on to learning about materials. They have identified materials on the trim trail in the playground and described their properties. In class, they have talked about why certain materials are used for different purposes. They discovered that a metal chain, as well as being strong, was also flexible to allow movement and add to the enjoyment of playing on ‘the wooden bridge’.

Singing practice for ‘Pirates and Mermaids’ is going well and the children are looking to forward to rehearsals with Year 2. Please could you send in the clothes for costumes as soon as possible as we would like to start decorating them next week.
