Term 4 - How have holidays changed over time?

Welcome back to Spring Term 2. We hope that everyone had a lovely half term with their families. This term we will be travelling back to the 1950's to explore what seaside holidays were like and compare them to holidays today. We will be creating beautiful landscapes in the style of our artist Monet as well as much more.  


Please see below our Enquiry Mat and Newsletter for this term. This will provide you with an overview of our learning this term and key dates. 

Fantastic writing 

We have had lots of fantastic writing in Year 1 this term. We have been learning all about instructions so we could make Mr Grindling a jam sandwich as the pesky seagulls stole his lunch in the story the light house keepers lunch. 

We have also been writing our own narrative based on the story Lucy and Tom at the seaside. We have been trying to make sure we are using capital letter for names and addresses nature our sentences make sense. 

World book day.

Year 1 have really enjoyed world book day today, dressing in their PJ’s, sharing their favourite bedtime stories and sharing books with their reading buddies (Year 5) and parents at our parent event.

Art - painting 

This term in art we are exploring the work of Claude Monet, specifically the water Lilly pond. 
Today we have been exploring different brushes and using them to create different tints and shades of the primary colours. 

PE - Ball skills 

This term we are learning how to throw using an underarm thrown. We learnt to take a step forward, throw from low to high, look where we are throwing and throw with the opposite arm we step forward with. Once we learnt how to throw under arm we applied this to competitive games. 

Reading for pleasure. 
Year 1 really enjoyed their reading for pleasure time this afternoon. All picking books they enjoy. 

Multiples of 10
We have started our maths learning this term my understanding multiples of ten and counting by making groups of ten.
