Welcome to Year 1 & 2
Mrs Heald- Teacher
Mrs Jamieson & Mrs Carrington- Teaching Assistants
Miss Taylor - Support TA
We cannot wait to begin our topic 'The Gruffalo'. To launch our topic we will head off on our woodland adventure using our forest school to explore plants and microhabitats as part of our Science work. Key Stage 1 will develop their ability to work scientifically by completing an experiment that focuses on how to grow cress in the best environmental conditions.
We will also be using our Geography skills to create woodland maps that use co-ordinate grids and keys. Our class will also be developing our Art skills by collaging, painting and sculpting the characters from the Gruffalo story. We will be using our teamwork (reciprocity) skills to create the art pieces in small groups. As well as our Art work, Key Stage 1 will be taking part in a Design & Technology project to create a moving parts Gruffalo scene that could include pop-ups or sliding pictures.
We look forward to a great half term filled with exciting activities that will engage the children and develop friendships too.
