Year 1

frownWelcome to Year One

 

 

 

 

Welcome children, parents and carers to our Year One class page. Please take a look at our super learning! 

Superhero Me! 

 

 

The children have really enjoyed reading the story 'Eliot Midnight Superhero' by Anne Cottinger as part of our English learning. 

 

 

The children had lots of fun learning about the famous artist Pablo Picasso. We looked at a range of paintings and drawings by Picasso and noticed that he liked to make his artwork look a little different! He particularly liked to paint portraits of people and used a front profile and side profile of the face in one painting! We then had a go at creating our own self portraits in the style of Picasso. 

 

 

 

Superhero Comic Fun!

 

 

The children worked really hard last week to create their own Superhero comics! They learnt that comics tell stories through pictures, speech bubbles, thought bubbles and onomatopoeia! 

The children then started to plan their ideas and got to work creating their own fantastic superhero comics!

In Science we are learning about everyday materials. Today the children worked in small groups to sort a range of everyday objects by the material they are made from. 

 

Challenge: Can you gather a selection of everyday household items and ask your child to group them by their material e.g. are they made of glass, metal, plastic, wood, cardboard, rubber, fabric, wool or another material?
