Autumn Term 1 (2020-2021)

Autumn 1, Week 3
In Literacy this week, Year One has been looking at the text 'Brown Bear Brown Bear' by Eric Carle, focusing on the repeated phrasing in the story. The children learned the text, created actions and thought about imaginative ways the story could be changed.
The video shows how much fun they had performing the story to each other!
Autumn 1, Week 2
The topic theme this term is 'Planet Earth'. Linked to Creation, the children in Year 1 are investigating the world around them. This week, we have been looking at amphibians! Our focused text was 'Look out for the Big Bad Fish' by Sheridan Cain and Tanya Linch. We listened to this story and had fun learning the life cycle of a frog. We named each stage of this life cycle. We know what an amphibian is and have compared them to fish.
We have looked at the primary colours - red, yellow, blue and discussed how to make green. We explored this by mixing paint to create different shades.

We enjoyed using the sensory tray to explore the life cycle of a frog and used the word cards and images to discuss each stage. The water beads were lovely to touch and looked just like frogspawn! We enjoyed looking through a range of frog related books - both fiction and non-fiction!
