Grow Achieve Shine
We are the Learning Lions. Our teacher is Mrs Garsden and we are really lucky because we get to work with Miss Bell, Mrs Bull, Miss Etherington, Miss Morrall and Miss Sliwka. In Year One, we love to explore and find out about new things.
Our P.E. lessons will be every Tuesday and Thursday. Some children will also need their P.E. kit in school for University 4 Life on Friday afternoon. So it is best to bring it on Monday and leave it on your peg in the cloakroom until Friday.
How you can help your child:
We have found out that in the Stone Age people did not farm their food, instead they hunted and gathered what they needed to eat. We are beginning to look at what farming is, how it has developed and how it has changed our environment. We have started this by looking at aerial photographs of crop fields and created our own collages.
Look at what the Year 1 teachers have found, a spear from the Stone Age! We asked questions about what is was used for and what it is made out of. We have looked at the different materials that Stone Age people used and investigated their properties.
We have had a great start to our new term. We have been discovering what life was like thousands of years ago during the Stone Age. We have been reading a book by Satoshki Kitamura called the Stone Age Boy. He falls "down down down" into a cave and when he woke up he discovered he was in the Stone Age where he met a girl called Om. He was shown some cave paintings and this is what we have had a great time experiencing.
