Year 1 - Ms Loizides & Mrs Newport

Awesome Adventures

Welcome to Year 1's Awesome Adventures. We will be travelling the world with our penguins, from the South Pole and all the way up to the North Pole. On the way we will visit all of the continents and oceans on planet Earth, learning songs about the continents and oceans, so we can remember everywhere we visit.

In Literacy, we will all become experts in places around the world and practise our super sentences and handwriting.

We will take daily weather reports from around the world, as well as our local area, to ensure we have the right clothes for the different weather conditions.

We will become expert map readers, plotting Penguin’s adventure across the globe. We will also make our own maps for our adventures in the school woods and grounds.

During Transition Thursday with Year R, we will become expert scientists. We will learn about the forces that are all around us.

Let the Force be with you!

In gymnastics, we will be practising our rocking and rolling movements to produce a short gymnastic sequence and every Friday we will work towards completing a field run: that is four times around the field. We haven’t all managed it yet, but by the summer we will all be super fit runners!

In art, we will be looking at textiles and producing some very special sewing, but you will learn more about that later!

In French we will continue to learn the colours of the rainbow.

Welly Walks will continue on Monday with our Muddy Monday.

Our Library day has changed to Friday and Book club will continue on Fridays so please bring in a book you would like to share with the class on this day.

Homework will go out and be collected on Fridays.

We are all very keen to have a wonderful 2018 together - let the awesome adventures begin!
