Friday 5th July 2024

There has been plenty of creativity in Year 1 over the last couple of weeks. The forthcoming 2024 Olympics in Paris has inspired the children to experiment with printing on fabric and to make their own collaborative artwork. Having learned about the meaning and significance of the five rings in the Olympic symbol, they printed patterns with circular shapes in the five Olympic colours.

The children have also been learning about Noemi Alphonse a champion Paralympian from Mauritius who races in a wheelchair; her sporting achievements are also reflected in the patterns the children created. In Humanities lessons, the children compared the island of Mauritius with the Scottish island of Col. They were also fascinated to learn about the Dodo which is now extinct but lived on Mauritius.

The children have moved on to making books about an imaginary island. Using their experience of reading the Katie Morag books and knowledge of Mauritius, has stimulated descriptive writing and map making which is included in their books. They also pretended they were David Attenborough and described an undiscovered animal which they find on their island. Using their scientific knowledge, the children wrote about their animal’s characteristics, senses, diet and habitat.
