'Puffins' Year 1







The subjects being looked at during the first half of the Summer Term 2019 (Term 5) can be seen below.


The pace plans for Year 1 for this half term can be seen below. Each pace plan tracks when particular areas of learning will be in focus across a term.


In year 1 we have been learning about Stickman and have been inspired to create our own Stickman poem. We thought of our own rhyming couplets, practised lots and then performed our poem. We hope you like it!

Year 1 are learning about how to describe a setting so we took a trip to our local woods. We felt very inspired by the book "The Wild Woods," written by Simon James and managed to think of incredible adjectives to describe the things we saw. We had lots of fun squelching in the mud and splashing in the river too!


The Year 1 children have had a wonderful week of learning in our whole school "Gingerbread Man" Literacy topic. We met the Little Old Lady who asked us to help her find that cheeky fox. So we made incredible Wanted posters and laid traps to catch him. We thought the traps would be more effective if we made gingerbread men to entice him in, but we made enough for us to eat too!
