Our first topic in Year 1 is called ‘Dinosaurs’. We got this off to a roaring start with a visit to the Natural History Museum! We found out lots of information about dinosaurs and fossils, and then we had a go at being palaeontologists.
What did you find out in the Dinosaur Gallery?
We found out the answers to lots of questions about Dinosaurs, and we are looking forward to learning more during our topic.
Thank you to all the adults who joined us, and helped make our day a success!
Our new topic began with an adventure right here in our very own school playground! Someone had left a map in our classroom, so we decided to follow the map to see if we could find treasure. Along the way we met different animals who asked us questions that were a little tricky to answer. At the end we found the treasure chest, but unfortunately Evil Pea had tricked us! He had taken the treasure, and we will only get it back if we return with the correct answers to all the questions.
This half-term we have been learning all about the things that share our home – Mother Earth. We have been finding out lots of facts about minibeasts, including where they live and what they eat. We decided to build our own minibeast hotel. We thought about the materials we would need, and then worked together to build each layer of the hotel. We hope our hotel will help to keep the minibeasts at Edmund Waller warm and safe!
Take a look at some photos from our Grand Opening:
Thank you to all the parents and carers for donating fantastic materials and coming along to our Grand Opening!
This half-term our topic has been ‘Up Above and Down Below’. We have been reading stories and learning about things that we see up in the sky and under the sea. Our Christmas show told the story of all the learning we have been doing.
