To launch our new enquiry 'where is my city?', year one went on a walk around the local area. We were each given a map and we had to identify key landmarks on our journey. We will be learning more about our locality over the next few weeks. Thank you to all of the parents and carers who came with us on our walk!
Year One have been enjoying learning about the artist Vincent Van Gogh. This is inspiring us as writers to write a non-fiction text about him as well as being artists to create our own 'Starry Night' scenes. We have been using oil pastels and exploring different artistic techniques such as blending. shading, smudging and line. Take a look at our lovely art work on displays in our classrooms.
Year 1 have been learning about the work and life of Vincent Van Gogh. We have been looking carefully at his paintings and describing what we can see. We enjoyed looking inside the story sack and finding out about the characters in the story 'Katie and the Starry Night'. This story is all about Vincent Van Gogh's famous painting. We are looking forward to being artists and creating our own picture as well as being author-writers and writing a fact file.
To immerse ourselves in our new story 'Man on the Moon' by Simon Bartram, we came into school yesterday to find a space scene in the hall! The scene had lots of clues for us to guess what our new story was. Ask us to tell you all about Bob and what his day is like on the moon!
Venus class had a fantastic day dressing up as the weather to launch our new enquiry: 'How does my city change?'
Neptune Class had a wonderful time coming to school dressed up as different types of weather. This is to launch our new enquiry 'how does our city change?' In this enquiry we will be exploring seasons and weather both within our city and beyond.
Mercury Class had a brilliant time dressing up as the weather and making clues for each other. They are excited about their new enquiry 'How does my city change?'
