Year 1 Launch Day Autumn 2

Year 1 began their first day of the new term by re-launching into their topic ‘Long long ago’. Children entered the classroom dressed as Kings and Queens and brought with them their fantastic half term projects. The children had a choice of what they could create as their project, some children brought in some amazing hand crafted dragons eggs, other children created fantastic knight armour, including a helmet, shield and sword and other children researched and collected some really interesting facts about the British Royal Family!

The children began their day by creating their own chalices which they decorated with some dazzling jewels, gems and glitter. They then read a story called George and the Dragon and they had to answer some interesting questions based on the story.After that the children then created their own hand paintings which they then turned into Kings, Queens or Knights with an image of their own face on it.

During the afternoon, the children took part in an etiquette lessons, focusing on posture which included balancing a book on their head whilst walking around the classroom. They also had to practice speaking like the Queen using tongue twisters.

Year 1 Launch Day Autumn 1

Year 1 launched into their new topic this week with a fantastic day filled with lots of fun activities. Children entered the classrooms that were decorated with castles and dragons, bringing with them their amazing ‘Long Long Ago’ summer projects.
The children began their day by showing their classmates their summer projects and had a class discussion about how life would have been ‘long long ago’. 
The children were then taught a traditional court dance with their partners to begin their fun filled day.
They then read a story called George and the Dragon and they had the chance to create their own fearsome dragons in an art and crafts activity. After that the children then created their own fabulous crowns covered with gems, as Kings and Queens would have
worn. 
The students then had the chance to decorate a castle, using a range of materials and colours. They were extremely creative!

Year 1 Gallery Trip

Today Year 1 headed to central London to visit the National Gallery.  This year we are participating in the Take One Picture Project which is run by the gallery and visited today to get a bit of inspiration.  We got the see the focus artwork up close and personal—it is absolutely huge and absolutely amazing!  Joseph Wright of Derby is one fantastic artist.  Perhaps our favourite part of the day was when we got to visit the Take One Picture gallery and see the artwork that children submitted last year as part of the project.  We were super impressed with what we saw and have loads of ideas.  We really want our artwork displayed in the National Gallery too!

Year 1 Summer 2 Launch Day

Under the Sea Launch

Year 1 launched into their new topic Under the Sea with a fun filled day earlier this week!  They arrived to a darkened classroom displaying a fishy scene on the IWB.  The children enjoyed watching the fish and many commented it was almost like being in an aquarium!  Next they discovered a letter left for them from Bert the cheeky seagull.  The children were very excited to see Bert had also left them a gift, a book all about his adventures called The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. 

During the day the children read many ocean themed books and completed lots of ocean themed art including newspaper sharks, paper plate rainbow fish, glittery lighthouses and calming and peaceful under the sea scenes.

The children finished the day by watching the Under the Sea clip from The Little Mermaid and experimented with different movement to match the music and the video.

Year 1 can’t wait to learn more about the commotion under the ocean!

Year 1 Summer 1 Launch Day

Year One launched into their topic this week with a fantastic day full of lots of fun activities.  Year 1 children  came into a messy corner of the classroom with a special message from Captain Blackbeard!  Blackbeard was looking to recruit some Year 1 children for his crew!

To help them look the part, the children made some amazing pirate hats, eye patches and hooks!  Arghh! 

The children also made some amazing pirate art including pirate ships, pirate wanted posters (which they needed to create their own scary pirate names for) and pirate paper plate faces.

To finish the day off, the children went on a treasure hunt around the school for Captain Blackbeard’s treasure.  They had to carefully ready each of the clues the captain left and find the hidden treasure.  Year 1 can’t wait to learn more about pirates and see if they are cut out to be part of the crew for Queen Anne’s Revenge.
