Welcome to Class 1

Our topic this half term is called 'Awfully Big Adventures'. We will be taking inspiration from the stories Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan to discuss characters, imagine our own worlds and plan our own tea party.

We will be trying to understand what it would be like to live in the Victorian times like Alice and the Darling children from our stories. We will be learning about victorian homes and comparing them to our own homes today. We will get the chance to examine some victorian objects and our visit will take us back in time to the victorian kitchen at Canon Hall Museum, where we will experience what it would have been like to work there as a servant.

In Geography we will be learning about the United Kingdom and its countries. We will be using maps to locate important places and creating our own maps.

We will be finding out about plants in science. We will be finding out what plants need to grow, what each part of a plant is for and growing some of our own plants. We will be using our observation skills to sketch and paint plants in art to develop our skills with powder paint. We will also be learning about surrealist art.

Our PE topics are dance and gymnastics.

Miss Scott visits us on Monday mornings for music. This half term we are learning to listen to music as musicians and have been listening to and performing hip hop music!
