Year 1 Class News 
Watch this space fill up with our amazing learning this year! 
Autumn 1
Year 1 have made a fabulous start to this school year and we have some fantastic learning to share with you. 
In English, we have been focusing on 'Last Stop on Market Street'. We have loved learning about CJ and Nana's journey together and writing some amazing sentences all about it. We've been using adjectives and adverbs, and practising using our full stops, finger spaces and capital letters. 
In Maths, our current topic is Place Value within 10. As you can see below, we have been learning through a range of mediums and going outside wherever possible! 
Our first focus topic this year has been Toys, within our history lessons. We had many discussions about our favourite toys and even brought these into school to share with our friends. We learnt about toys from a range of eras, including the Victorian Era, and made our own wooden peg dolls. We also invited our parents and grandparents into school to share some of their toys from when they were little with us. It was so much fun! 
Moving on, we began our Science week where our topic focus has been Seasons and Weather. We examined the four seasons, days of the week and months of the year, the weather, hibernation and why day becomes night. We loved using the book 'Trees' in our lessons to explore how trees change during the seasons. See below our amazing hedgehog hotels that we built as part of our hibernation lesson. 
In Art, our first weekly block was based on 'Drawing'. Here, we focused on mark-making and learnt how to cross hatch. For our end product, we had to draw an animal using our mark-making tools. We linked our learning in science to this, creating our artwork on hibernating hedgehogs. 
We then began our DT week based on Wheels, where we designed, constructed and evaluated our own toy cars!
