Welcome to India class. We are in Year 1 and our teachers are Mrs Lilley and Mrs Peachment. Mrs Peel, Mr Rackham and Mrs Long are our Teaching Assistants.
In science we have been learning about animals and how we can sort them into different groups. In art we chose our favourite animal and drew it carefully. Then we used lots of different materials to make the drawing into a collage. We really enjoyed making these. They are all hanging up in our classroom for us to look at.
In the first weeks of term we having been reading lots of traditional stories including The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have loved listening to them and talking about the characters. All the stories start with ‘Once upon a time’ and most of them end with ‘They lived happily ever after’. The bears weren’t very happy though, after Goldilocks had been in their house! Here’s a photo of the display we’ve made in our classroom.
The children have just finished their first week in year 1 and have settled in well. Although things are a bit different to usual, we’ve had fun learning in the classroom and in the outdoor area. We have washed our hands loads of times!! Below is the topic map which shows which areas of the curriculum we will be learning about this half term.
