Autumn Term 2
This term Year 1 has been learning about where in the world we live. We have had lots of fun making and following maps of our classrooms. As well as making messy maps of our local area and trying to make a key.
This term Year 1 has been learning about animals including humans. The children enjoyed going out to the pond, searching and exploring the area to see what different types of animals they could see. We made a tally chart to keep track, the children said "I feel like a scientist."
Autumn Term 1
Year 1 have enjoyed learning all about their bodies and senses this half term. The children enjoyed our sensory tables lesson where each child was given the opportunity to explore their senses and their uses. The children tasted different types of fruit and were able to discuss if it was sweet or sour. They used their ears to listen to different sounds created by various objects, some children tried to make the sounds loud and quiet. Cotton wool, bark and leaves, rice, and material was placed on a table for the children to feel and guess using touch what they were feeling. The class favourite was when the children had to smell different types of food, to see if they could guess what it was as well as to discuss if it was a good or bad smell. The children used their sight to see each object and understood the importance of our sight as humans.
Year 1 have been looking at their past and future. The children enjoyed looking at the different things they couldn't do as a baby but what they could do now, and how some things they may have needed support to do but now can do independently. We then looked at the future and discussed what the children would like to do when they are older. We all enjoyed listening to their ideas, such as "go shopping on my own", "drive a car", "decide what food I eat and cook my own dinner".
