Autumn 2 

This half term, year 1 have been learning lots of new and exciting things.

Our topic has been Kings and Queens

We have been learning all about the British monarchy and other royal families from all over the world. We have created lovely portraits of past Kings and Queens and even made our own crowns.  

Our focus books this half term have been 'Where the wild things are' and 'The king who banned the dark'. We wrote poems about what we would do if we were king/queen and explored the Wild things story through 'talk for writing'. 


In science we have been looking all different types of animals (including us) and learning important facts about different animal groups!


Next half term our topic will be Around the world.

Autumn 1

During this half term we have been learning lots of new and amazing things.

Our topic has been 'Family and where we live'.

In Green class we have created a Green class family tree where we wrote the names of all the special people in our family to put on a lovely display outside our classroom. We have had class discussions on some of the well known places in our local area of Edmonton. We explored the Bear hunt and Lion hunt stories and used these to create maps to tie in with our topic and map out our route to school.

We have also been looking at the books 'Here we are' and 'Beegu' and learnt lots of interesting facts about different planets, created some amazing art work and learnt all about the importance of home! We even got a visit from an extraterrestrial being :)


Next half term our topic will be Kings and Queens.
