Class 3 and Class 4
Mrs Warby is the Year 1 teacher in Class 3, with Mrs Liversedge, Miss Dickenson and Mrs Pritchard as her Teaching Assistants. Mrs Turrell is the teacher in Class 4, with Mrs German and Miss Wenn as her Teaching Assistants. Both classes are also supported by Mrs Carter.
Year 1 travelled back in time to 1666, and learned all about what life was like for people living in this time. They had the opportunity to do some of the jobs that people would have done in 1666, before learning all about how the Great Fire of London started, and spread through the city. The children had a fantastic day and learned so much! Ask them all about it, they are experts now!
Year 1 read the story Handa's Surprise. We talked about how the story is set in Africa, and discussed the differences between living in a hot place, and living in March, as well as considering the similarities. We became scientists for the day, when we learned about the fruits that grow in Africa, and used our senses to look at, touch, smell and taste the different fruits. Year 1 also really enjoyed working with clay to make mud huts, and creating music with our own rainmakers. What a busy week!
We investigated the changing seasons. As Autumn is drawing in, the children talked about the changes that they are seeing in their environment, and used this to write some wonderful poetry. We made season wheels and created beautiful hibernating hedgehogs. Year 1 are now excitedly looking forward to next week when we make our own Autumn Harvest soup!
